Talk:List of horror fiction writers
|WikiProject Horror||(Rated List-class)|
Indiscriminate collection of information?
What are the standards of inclusion here? Dunsany wrote one or two horror stories out of hundreds; are we to include Charles Dickens or Louisa May Alcott, who also wrote some stories "to make the flesh creep"? Or Shakespeare, for Titus Andronicus? And if so, where does this list stop? Septentrionalis 17:14, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
What is the point of this page? Why not just use categories?--188.8.131.52 15:22, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
- I agree. Perhaps this article should be divided into "primary horror fiction writers" (i.e. those who primarily write horror fiction--approximately 30% or more of their works?--like Stephen King, Anne Rice, or Ray Bradbury) and "minor horror fiction writers" (authors who have written "a few" (less than20-30%) horror-genre works but primarily specialize in other genres)?Gniob (talk)
Hello, I'm working with OCLC, and we are algorithmically generating data about different Genres, like notable Authors, Book, Movies, Subjects, Characters and Places. We have determined that this Wikipedia page has a close affintity to our detected Genere of horror-fiction. It might be useful to look at  for more information. Thanks.
