Looking Forward: A Few Horror Books for 2014


2013 is on its way out and 2014 is ready to go! Here are just a few titles I'm really looking forward to reading in 2014.

Doctor Sleep: Yes, Doctor Sleep was published in 2013. But I'm looking forward to reading it in 2014. There has been a lot of excitement over this sequel to The Shining, and it's pretty much guaranteed to live up to the hype.

Black Wings of Cthulhu, Volume Two, edited by S. T. Joshi: The title alone is enough to get my interest. I haven't yet read the first volume, so that can be added to the list as well.  

The Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 6: A year really doesn't feel complete without at least one Ellen Datlow edited anthology. Ms. Datlow takes the time to collect and read short stories from all over the place, and presents her findings for eager readers. Definitely one not to miss.


Nancy O. Greene started writing at the age of nine. Her short story collection, Portraits in the Dark, received a brief mention in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror 2007.
