Whatever genre an author debuts with definitely impacts their image. Now, there are many things responsible for the success of any book. YA has come a long way in that a good guy facing off the bad guy isn’t limited to the darker genres anymore. However, I can’t help but notice that there are only a handful of young adult horror authors and that its subgenres are much more popular (re: zombies and dark fantasy). So while we definitely need more young adult horror, here’s a list of thirteen authors who delved into the genre.
What’s next? An anthology and the conclusion to her Parasitology series titled Chimera are set to release in 2015. And oh, a standalone book titled Rewind set in the same world as Newsflesh is coming out in 2016.
What’s next? An as-of-yet untitled book that will probably release in 2016.
Have you read any of these? What are your favorites? Looking forward to any creepy, scary titles by any of the thirteen?
