109 Free Horror Ebooks, Web Serials and Short Stories

What are you thoughts on the effect of horror has on us and the experiences we all go through? We understand everyone reacts to horror differently, and that there are variables like setting the mood, night time, etc. For us, the one that really could give the creepy vibes just by thinking about it it was Pet Sematary. The Shining was, to no great surprise, a fantastically creepy book. There was at least one time when I was literally too scared to turn the page. After reading the Haunting of Hill House, it made me realize that there’s a whole great big world of fantastic horror stories beyond just Jack Torrance, Pennywise, Kurt Barlow, Louis Creed and Annie Wilkes.

What book has scared the bejeesus out of you or disturbed you for days after? Where and how did you read it? Did you get in a mood? Set the atmosphere?
