The phenomenally popular Book of Lists series has sold millions of copies from coast to coast, enthralling trivia aficionados with fascinating infobits about simply everything! Now the latest edition turns an evil eye toward the strange, the blood-curdling, and the macabre with spine-tingling fun facts from the dark side of entertainment. Chock-full of creepy information from the netherworlds of movies, TV, literature, video games, comic books, and graphic novels, The Book of Lists: Horror offers a blood-feast of forbidden knowledge that horror fans are hungry to devour, including:

  • Stephen King's Ten Favorite Horror Novels or Short Stories—learn what scares the master!
  • Top Six Grossing Horror Movies of All Time in the United States— which big shocks translated into big bucks?
  • Top Ten Horror-Themed Rock 'n' Roll Songs—maybe it is ‘devil's music' after all!
  • And much, much more!

Drawing on its authors' extensive knowledge and contributions from the (living) legends and greatest names in the horror and dark fantasy genres, The Book of Lists: Horror is a scream—an irresistible compendium of all things mysterious, terrifying, and gory . . . and so entertaining, it's scary!

Got this because of the varied contributors (are Edgar 'Shaun of the Dead' Wright and Scott 'Mysterious Skin' Heim brought together anywhere else?) plus inspired little features. The Twilight Zone chap's list of hackneyed plots is a hoot, particularly 'Hey! I'm Really Dead!' Read full review

A must have for any fan of horror. Mainly focuses on movies, but does cover books, music, televesion, and random horror. Excellent material and should sit on the bookshelves of any horror fan! Read full review
