Ten of the best horror books you've never read

Nick Cutter is a pseudonym for an acclaimed author of novels and short stories. His new novel is The Deep.

At Publishers Weekly Cutter named a ten best list of littler-known horror books, including:
Enter Night by Michael Rowe

This is the other vampire book. You don’t know me, I’m just some schmo writing a list, but trust me on this: if I like a vampire book, it has to be one hell of a read. And this one is. Rowe pulls the reader in slowly and uses his remote Canadian setting to great effect. There is nothing gory or outrageous on display—Rowe wants to scare the reader, that is clearly his express mandate, and he is so well-versed in the trappings of fear, the slow accumulation of dread, that you will likely have to take breaks while reading this to unkink your tensed-up muscles.
