Horror

Horror fiction is intended to terrify readers. It sometimes, but not always, includes elements of the supernatural. The endings of horror novels are unresolved. Horror is closely related to other genres on the map, such as fantasy and science fiction, but while in fantasy good trumps evil, in horror the evil force lives on.

Well-known horror writers include Stephen King and Robert R. McCammon.

Horror fiction has been on the wane in recent years, but it remains incredibly popular with a niche adult fiction audience.

Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write horror novels, explore this genre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
