From the author of dozens of number-one New York Times best sellers and the creator of many unforgettable movies comes a vivid, intelligent, and nostalgic journey through three decades of horror as experienced through the eyes of the most popular writer in the genre.

In 1981, years before he sat down to tackle On Writing, Stephen King decided to address the topic of what makes horror horrifying and what makes terror terrifying. Here, in 10 brilliant chapters, King delivers one colorful observation after another about the great stories, books, and films that comprise the horror genre - from Frankenstein and Dracula to The Exorcist, The Twilight Zone, and Earth vs. The Flying Sacuers.

With the insight and good humor his fans appreciated in On Writing, Danse Macabre is an enjoyable entertaining tour through Stephen King's beloved world of horror.

    " I read this a long time ago and it remains the best Stephen King book I've read,.. And it's non fiction. Go figure. "

    " This book is a little dated, well, really dated, but here Stephen King just writes with insight and apparent glee about what he loves and does best. Too bad he apparently was castrated somewhere around 1991 and never wrote another great book after that. "

    " Love him or hate him, everyone has to admit that Stephen King knows his shit. This book is basically just him rambling on about his own favorites in the extensive and ever varying horror spectrum. I tend to disagree with some of the things he says - he disses Blatty (The Exorcist) for crying out loud!! - but all the same, he proves here that his opinion on what makes good horror is definitely one that you must read if you are either keen on writing your own horror novel, or if you just like to read scary stuff - or both of course. He gives a fascinating insight, writing it out in a way that is totally enjoyable and addictive and funny. It's not a fictional story this time, but don't let that trick you into thinking you won't be mesmerized by it... "

    " Very enjoyable- dated, but a good summation of the genre and as King proposes, a good starting point. "
