I received a special request from a young sailor in the Navy. He was just deployed to dangerous waters, and needs a diversion to help pass the long seven months it will take to come home. He wants books and graphic novels. And not just any books – he wants scary. Terrifying. The scariest I can find. He read Goosebumps and Harry Potter as a boy, and horror is really the only thing he likes to read (and my books, of course!). So now….I need to find the scariest books out there.
Whose books are the scariest? Stine, King, Koontz? I’m looking for crazy scary. No kiddy crap, was the request. Does anyone have any favorites? Please help me scare the uniform off this sailor, and send your ideas this way. I’d love to know that when this sailor crawls into his coffin of a bunk and hunkers down against the darkness of the night, he can read until he scares himself silly, chasing the boredom back to the netherworld.
