We Want Your Votes for Best Horror Novel of 2016!

Joe Hill The Fireman

We’ve seen a handful of amazing horror novels released this year. But the number of books hitting shelves is so sizable that it becomes a near impossibility to keep up with every standout effort to land in our laps.

That’s where you, the readers, and you, the contributors come into play.

We want your votes for the finest novel to be released in 2016.

The only stipulation here is that the novel was officially released in 2016. Not December of 2015, or a re-release of a novel years old. We want your votes for the new books. You can vote for up to three titles.

What was your favorite of the year?

Was it Hunter Shea’s The Jersey Devil?

Was it Joe Hill’s The Fireman?

Maybe it was Bracken MacLeod’s Stranded?

Was it Joe R. Lansdale’s Honky Tonk Samurai?

Let us know, as you’ll be helping us to compile a list of the absolute must-read novels of 2016! That means other fans are relying on you to lead them down a thrilling path!

Drop us a comment below with your vote, and if you’re really torn on two novels, don’t be shy: list them both!

Try to have your votes in by December 10th, so that we have a chance to go through nominations, discuss those nominations and reach a conclusion that will be unanimously respected!

The 2016 Best Novels Award is in your hands, so fill up the comment section below!

    • COMPLETELY ignorant to Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell. Was it good? Scary? Creepy? Is it a 500+ page book – I just don’t have the time read them consistently enough to maintain interest. Fill me in on that, if you will. Thatnks buddy!

  11. “Stranded” by Bracken MacLeod.

    A friend recommended this to me. It’s very intelligently written and full of suspense. I have to be honest though, if you go to bed to sleep then don’t pick this up. It’s not an easy book to put down.

    Great idea for a thread Matt. Don’t think I’ve read any horror published this year. I was going to say Bird Box, but I think that’s last year. Hmm, will read some of the other suggestions and come back.

    My vote is for “the eight day” by m.m. dos Santos. Some of the most frightening aspects of the book is how it made me root for some of the purest of evil I’ve encountered. Who does that? Im a good person. Truely. The imagery is burnt into my memories. So well done! #teamarold

    The Devourers by Indra Das, mesmerizing literary horror with shapeshifters set in India, followed by Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt which made stitched-up witches almost as as scary as small towns.
