I was born a passionate bookaholic.
That's great! There are so many of the older writers that many people haven't read, much less heard of. Best of all, much of their work is now public domain and can be shared by all.
These are the people that heavily influenced all our current favorite writers. It's nice to see where the influences come from.
Thanks a lot!
Lovecraft would great, but I'd REALLY like to see more from the other masters of horror. Such as;
Aston Clark Smith, Algernon Blackwood, Robert Bloch, August Derleth, William Hope Hodgson, Henry Kuttner and anyone else of the Cthulhu Mythos era.
Those are the stories that scare our socks off!
