I was sorry to learn of the recent death of novelist Mo Hayder.
I enjoyed several of her novels, including Pig Island.
It was one of the scariest stories I’ve read. I bought copies for two of my friends, interested in their reaction. Both of them were terrified!
Thinking about other titles that have chilled me, I came up with Tim Willock’s Green River Rising and All Involved—written by Ryan Gattis—which I chose as one of my favourite reads of 2017.
All three books involve the innocent threatened by an evil mob run amok. I find human monsters more compelling than dragons, ghouls, aliens, wild creatures and ghosts.
Having said that, being threatened by a host of tiny creatures, impossible to fight, such as insects and reptiles and mice would give me the willies!
What scares you?
