“100 Favorite Horror Stories”

NPR shares a list of excellent horror stories. Readers sent in 7,000 stories and judges Tananarive Due, Grady Hendrix, Ruthanna Emrys and Stephen Graham Jones winnowed them down to a list of 100. “As with our other reader polls, this isn’t meant to be a ranked or comprehensive list — there are a few books you won’t see on it despite their popularity — some didn’t stand the test of time, some just didn’t catch our readers’ interest, and in some cases our judges would prefer you see the movie instead. (So no Jaws, sorry.) And there are a few titles that aren’t strictly horror, but at least have a toe in the dark water, or are commenting about horrific things, so our judges felt they deserved a place on the list.”
