Recently discovered horror author worth checking out: Charles L Grant. If you enjoy horror that's beautifully written and filled with atmosphere,then this "quiet horror"  writer might be of interest. 

 

" Past sunset in early February,the worst time of the year.Too far from Christmas and too far from spring.Too cold. Too quiet.The light,never strong,too soon gone.Trees without leaves,scarred bark,empty nests,fading into the dark; weeds along the roadside,trembling stiffly,shedding burrs,flaring in passing headlights,and fading into the dark;house lights and streetlamps and traffic signals growing brighter,growing brittle,trying desperately,and failing,not to fade into the dark.

No snow.

No wind.

The landscape grey and dead."

From "Raven" by Charles L Grant
