Author-turned-actor Thomas Tryon wrote two of the best of pre-Stephen King horror bestsellers in the early 1970s, The Other (1971) and Harvest Home (1973). Here are the UK paperback editions; you can see the originals here. If you haven't read 'em, get to it! Such chilling delights.
They were also made into movies, of course, the former title I've seen, while the latter was made for TV but still starred Bette Davis. Creepy kids and malevolent old ladies...
Looking for a forgotten horror novel or short story? Remember the cheesy paperback art but not who wrote the book? Send me an email at willerror[at]gmail.com describing it and if I don't know it, one of my readers might!
