    Any of Stephen King or James Herbert

    James Herbert == James Pervert. I read Ash which contains rape, incest and the list goes on oO
    I'm not prudish but some parts of the book were very bizarre.

    Try Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, M. R. James and Algernon Blackwood.

    Off topic but good

    Knifepoint horror podcast is amazing, it's just a single man telling his story but the story telling is a cut above and draws you completely in.

    The Necroscope series by Brian Lumley

    IT by Stephen King. Absolute masterpiece for me.
    The Stand by Stephen King. Great great book
    In fact a lot of kings books. Misery is great.


    Stephen King. Richard Layman. Dean Koontz. In that order.

    Peter F. Hamilton's Night's Dawn maybe? Not exactly a horror novel but there's a lot of it and it definitely features malevolent spirits.

    China Mieville's Perdido Street Station & The Scar are some good dark fantasy novels featuring lots of scary bad guys

    And if she's only just getting into Horror then H.P. Lovecraft should be added to the list of classic authors. There's a three volume omnibus of his works available.

    +1 for James Herbert
