Horror Fiction Web Sites
Literature is but one of the areas available here. That section alone offers author links, message and story boards. Links to articles about horror compliment the many direct links to the full texts of classic and current horror stories.
Links to members' pages are here, as is a full listing of winners of their annual Stoker Award. The reading lists include their Top Horror Of All Time and 13 Recommended Titles Currently in Bookstores.
This site serves students in the field as well as interested newcomers. It features only works published before 1950, sometimes a few centuries before. Masters of the ghost story, such as M.R. James and J. Sheridan Le Fanu, can be found in their full-text library, as can originators of the "creepy castle, gloomy hero" trend such as "Monk" Lewis, Byron, and Bulwer-Lytton ("It was a dark and stormy").
