Over the years, many great horror novels have been born directly from the creative minds of the talented authors who conceived them.
However, some of those authors had a little more assistance with their stories than others. And, that is because, some of the greatest horror novels ever written, were also based, either partially or fully, upon true stories.
Whether it’s demonic possession, haunted houses or reincarnation, horror books based on real stories just seem to terrify us more. No matter how far-fetched the tale might seem, parts of it are true and, therefore, easier to believe and easier to get frightened.
With Halloween a few days away, the Tampa Bay Books Examiner has compiled a list for its readers of 5 horror novels based on true events.
We hope you enjoy it and will share with us some of your own choices.
