And I forgot to mention ... even well-known, well-established writers miss the mark occasionally. So if you've read two or three books by, say, Stephen King, and dismissed him, you might not have gotten very good books to read.

Personally, I think "The Shining" by King is one of the best horror novels around. I can remember reading it in high school and not being able to stop once I got to a certain point. I kept the light on and read until three in the morning.

Your taste, obviously, may vary considerably.
