Riffle Editor's Choice: Essential Horror Books for August 2017

For the last couple of months, I've been hard at work expanding the number and kind of book lists that you can find on the Riffle Horror Editor's profile. At the time of this writing, I have over 100 book lists with another 5 in various stages of completion.

Don't believe me? Go ahead and click on the link above and check them out. You don't have to have a Riffle account to view my profile and the book lists in it. You can click on any list title that interests you.

Although I've had a couple of such lists for years, last month I started creating series book lists in earnest. I take horror novel and horror graphic novel series and list the books published, usually in the order of publication. They seem to be popular.

One caveat is that I won't list a series with less than 5 items in it. It really doesn't make sense to have a whole list for just two or three books. Which is a shame because I really like several trilogies like The Pine Deep Trilogy.

What do you think of series book lists? Like them? Hate them? Let me know in the discussion section below the book list.

In the meantime, you can check out the best new horror books for August 2017 and perhaps find a new story to read. Let me know in the discussion below if any book tickles your fancy.
