Raisor's List of Horror

I'm lucky enough to have a list submitted by veteran horror author Gary Raisor, and he has such fine taste too (but he has me curious about that Farmer novel, which I'd never heard of.)

From Wikipedia: Gary Raisor is an American horror author best known for the novels Less Than Human, Graven Images, Sinister Purposes, and his extensive short fiction work. [...] He was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel for Less Than Human in 1992.
He also edited the anthology Obsessions with stories from Dean Koontz, Kevin J. Anderson, F. Paul Wilson, Dan Simmons, Joe R. Lansdale, and featured the story Lady Madonna by Nancy Holder, which won the Bram Stoker Award for Short Fiction in 1991.

Raisor has written numerous short stories, beginning in the 1980s in Night Cry Magazine and The Horror Show, working his way into a lot of "Best Of" anthologies. Today, Raisor concentrates primarily on screenplays and comics.
