Although Stephen King is often the first author who comes to mind when readers think of horror, many writers -- and readers -- are drawn to the horror genre. Some horror novels develop around everyday events where there is an evil presence; others may have supernatural beings such as ghosts and vampires. Some even have a humorous element. Horror novels may include graphic violence, strong language, or explicit content. What these titles have in common is a menacing atmosphere with a sense of foreboding that intensifies as the protagonist's fear mounts. The horror may be overcome temporarily, but there is often an unresolved ending and a lingering sense that evil may rise again.
