My Five Favorite Horror Novels

Today I received an email from Centipede Press, a publishing company that specializes in publishing limited amount of books in the genre of horror, science fiction, and crime; the books are beautifully illustrated and designed. There are a few Centipede Press books in my library. In the newsletter, there is a list of Williams F. Nolan's top horror novels. After reviewing the list and concurring to quite a few of the titles, I realized some of my favorite horror novels were not mentioned, so here is my top five favorite horror novels (for now).
