Women in Horror Month: Resources!


I usually start the month out with a horror spotlight on all of the new horror releases, but it's Women in Horror Month! I'm going to push back the regular post a bit so we can focus first on WiHM.

Do you need suggestions for what to read this month? The following is a list of resources to help you discover some amazing women horror writers:

Last year I wrote a post on Women in Horror A-Z. If you are looking for some suggestions on what to read this month, please give it visit! There are some amazing women and books to be found there.

Did you know there is a genre on Goodreads called "Women and Horror"?! Check it out!

"Tucked away on the dark and dusty shelves of libraries around the world are pages packed with murder: tales of lands where only the most wicked of creatures dwell...Here is a short round up of the women you may not know yet, but once you do, they’ll surely haunt your bookshelves evermore." 6 Female Horror Writers To Read Right Now

My friend Anita wrote this post a few years ago for Hellnotes, and it is an amazing resources for discovering women horror writers: Top 25 Women Horror Writers You Probably Haven’t Heard Of (But Should Know)

Melissa at Little Miss Zombie wrote a post several years ago listing 50 Kindle Horror Books Written By Women, and Gef at Wag the Fox followed it up with a list of 50 MORE Kindle Horror Books Written by Women. These lists are awesome.

Updates:

Becky at RA for All: Horror posted an announcement for Women in Horror Month that includes some great recommendations: Women in Horror Month 8 Begins Today!

If you have any resources you would like to add, please let me know! I will add them to the updates.

  1. Fab post! I'm going to check out your links later today. What we also need are more woman bloggers blogging about horror. I know of a very small handful but they are very hard to find. I know we're out there!

  3. Awesome post! I only took a glance at a couple of those links, but I hope Sarah Pinborough and Sarah Lotz are getting lots of love.

    1. I know Sarah Pinborough for sure was on my list I linked to from last year. Hopefully Sarah Lotz was included on one of the other lists.

  4. This is fantastic. My pile of horror to read has dwindled down and I've been needing to add more good ones to it. That top 25 post has SO many I've heard of but just haven't read -- although I own Come Closer by Sara Gran so looks like I need to bump that up the list.
