Booklist names ‘Horror Literature through History’ a Top 10 Reference Book

Booklist has named my horror encyclopedia one of the top ten reference works it reviewed between May 2017 and May 2018, saying that all the books on the list “represent useful resources for libraries of all sizes.”

You can also read Booklist‘s full starred review of Horror Literature through History, where the upshot is this:

Extremely informative in its content, easy to use, engaging in its writing style, Cardin’s comprehensive and inclusive reference work not only solidly makes the case for horror’s enduring importance in our lives, as humans, throughout history but also presents it in a package that is a pleasure to read.

The encyclopedia is available from the publisher, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other booksellers. It’s also in libraries everywhere (and you can request it if your library doesn’t have it).
