Kelly's List of Horror

It is quite remarkable that esteemed horror editor and author Michael Kelly found time to make a list for this series; even though I didn't pressure him, he was kind enough to send me something. It's an amazing list and now that I've seen it, I feel I could have used a couple of his selections in place of some of those on my own. But that is the way with lists, I reckon; they can change from day to day.

A note from Mr. Kelly: "I [...] decided that no author would be represented more than once. I could have easily added more Aickman, Machen, Ligotti, etc."
