African-American Horror Author Book List

Horror Book Lists, Popular

This is the African-American Horror Author Book List. Despite that, it is a work in progress. I’m sure there are more people out there writing horror who are of African American heritage than I have listed here.

If you know of anybody I’ve missed, please mention them in comments so I can add them in. In the meantime, this is the best place to start.

If you want to participate in the spirit of the 2010 National African American Read-In but really want to read something scary, these are the authors that will get’cha.
