Ten top contemporary horror novels

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Theresa DeLucci tagged ten hair-raising horror novels not written by Stephen King, including:
The Missing, by Sarah Langan

Terror comes to a small, wealthy community in Maine…and this is where any comparison to Stephen King must end. Langan’s Corpus Christi escapes an environmental disaster only to have the town come under the spell of an infectious evil that drives hosts to homicidal frenzy. This is not your typical zombie apocalypse story and Langan’s characters are not your typical good guys in white hats. They are just as messy and damaged as the infected. Langan’s greatest skill is her lovingly lurid prose; you’ll likely lose your appetite after this read.
