Horror - also known as Horror fantasy - is a genre of literature that is intended to induce fear, terror or horror in it's readers.

Horror can be be fantastic, supernatural or simply fictional in nature and is considered to be a genre that has existed in some form for hundreds of years. As with any genre there is always some ambiguity as to what constitutes horror and there does seem to be a modern predilection for a greater degree of dark fantasy and speculative fiction rather than the classic definition of Horror, however there are still some authors producing some top rate novels within the genre.

Here you can see reviews of the latest new horror books along with some of the best classics of the genre.
