Stephen King isn't the only Maine horror writer: there is also Rick Hautala, whose novels for Zebra Books were mainstays of bookstore shelves throughout the 1980s. These are some classic '80s covers, replete with holograms, creepy kids, dolls, dark woods, cats, and skulls! For a nice appreciation of Hautala, check out the always great Phantom of Pulp. Hautala's still writing; check him out.
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!
