I'm not a horror fan, but since I've been reading his On Writing, I've become intrigued by 2 of his books and kinda want to read it. Problem is, I get scared really easily and don't wanna be left with nightmares after the book. I tend to remember almost everything I read for a long time. Needless to say if something scared me, I remember it for an extra long time. So, to read or not to read? Specifically I'm interested in The Stand and Dead Zone. Anyone read these books before? Btw, when I said I wasn't a horror fan, I meant that I am actually fascinated by horror - many of my own stories contain dark and freaky elements - but I get scared so easily that in the end, the nightmares weren't worth it. To give an example of how easily scared I am, The Happening managed to scare me. So did World War Z. Even I could tell World War Z wasn't actually scary and The Happening was downright stupid. Yup. Still scared me. I tend to regret watching horror afterwards.
