Stephen King - king of horror

Last Update: June 30, 2018

Flicking through Jaxxy for some keywords I came across, Stephen King king of horror. Well it says it all!

Name by nature, and name by position, he must be ranked as the greatest author on the genre 'horror' of all time?

Can anyone come up with a more scary writer than Stephen? If so please point him or her out to me.

He built a lot of his thinking on HP Lovecraft as a predecessor. There are Lovecraftian references in some of his novels. Some of it was original though. You can see that Maine lobster influence in the Dark Tower II!

Howard Lovecraft? I think died just before the war?

I am a massive reader of Stephen King, and although I like the horror side of his work .. I have to say that The Dark Tower Series is a masterpiece.

He is a good writer all round! ....

I am sorry ... I can not name someone better than SK!

Stephen King is the best but try James Herbert too. He is also a great horror writer.

I agree, James Herbert, great writer. A bit behind in output though.
