Women in Horror

What does that mean to me?  It started with Anne Rice. I, like many, fell in love with the saga of Lestat, especially the 2nd and 3rd novels in the Vampire Chronicles, THE VAMPIRE LESTAT and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED.  Those two books pulled me under. At the time, I didn’t care whether it was written by a man or a woman, why should that matter?  I loved the story and the characters and that’s all that mattered.

And that’s all that should matter.

It took me a few years to really get into reading, but about 14 years ago, I dove in head first. Since then, I’ve discovered a plethora of amazing writers. Among my favorites are super-talented ladies like Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason (the Sisters of Slaughter), Damien Angelica Walters, Mercedes M. Yardley, Somer Canon, C.W. LeSart, and most recently, Amber Fallon.

Whether its the mesmerizing prose of Walters or Yardley, the lustful creepiness of LeSart’s short stories, or the go for the throat hell-rides that await at the Sisters of Slaughter Gore Galore Fun Park, there is plenty of blood being spilled on the pages produced by these wonderful writers.

You need proof that the writers are amazing?  Check out Somer Canon’s VICKI BEAUTIFUL or Amber Fallon’s THE WARBLERS.

As far as I’m concerned they don’t have to prove a damn thing.

  1. Rice’s Vampire Chronicles…the bomb! She’s my favorite author and The Queen of the Damned is my fave book. I’ve read it four times.

    Loved Mayan Blue and Vicki Beautiful. Both were astounding works of horror. Need to add the others to my list.
