I have a 14 yr old son and have been homeschooling since grade one. He loves horror and some dark fantasy. I am introducing him to Poe and Baudelaire this month with much eye-rolling on his part. Can anyone recommend some horror books or dark poetry that may appeal to a teen? We've done King, Koontz and Saul. Also, I have tried to encourage him to read authors like Twain and Dickens-I've been unsuccessful. Any hints or suggestions, or should I just let him take his own lead?
