I have not been on this forum for so long - someone surely must have mentioned W W Jacobs's The Monkey's Paw in connection with Pet Sematary. It had been the scariest thing I had ever read before reading PS.
Is anyone else scared to get out of bed at night while reading one of SK's books? I used to be, while reading his first books. (And the fact that my husband was sleeping peacefully next to me did not help.)
