Literary horror-fancy scares for the highbrow among us

If you’re like me, you’re too tasteful and refined for the gaping-maw, bloody bones of everyday horror. You want excellent writing and psychological shivers to give you the creeps. Thanks to Unbound Worlds, I now know about literary horror fiction and the high-class path to getting scared. Dread, fear, and distorted reality are all part of it, along with complex characters and unnerving undercurrents. According to Literary Hub, literary horror also owes much to suggestion and insidious fright. Here are some suggestions for your consideration:
