    I bought ‘On Writing Horror’ copyright 2007 and read it from cover to pages to cover. I especially found chapter’s six, seven and eight, most beneficial since I’ve never written a horror novel and had always wanted to.

    Many of the online web addresses were equally useful and highly informative. The book is 254 pages long, (excluding the Index) and took me a little under 10 days. I will review the book several more times honing in on specific advice given by the many talented writers who contributed to this heck-of-a-nice work.

    One more thing, I found the book is not for absolute beginners because it does not focus on the art of writing; rather it centers all attention on the horror genre itself. So if one is looking to learn how to write a novel then this might not be the book to buy.

    If on the other hand, one is looking to break into the horror genre with some hope of success, ‘On Writing Horror’, should be the first book among many to read.
