Horror books Review
This book is an excellent introduction for children into the lives of ten of the most important and influential American writers who helped shape the horror novel or story (be it on the written page or screen).
Very short chapters will both keep a young reader’s interest and provide a surprising amount of information at the same time.

An enjoyable and informative book, it also provides an invaluable service by giving these gifted and deserving writers an opportunity to be discovered by a new generation of readers.
