If you love Stephen King but have already read all of his best works, then it's time to try something new.

There are plenty of other horror authors that are equally as talented, but a little lesser know.

Here are a few novels that are similar to Stephen King's writing:

1. Watchers by Dean Koontz

Watchers by Dean Koontz

This book is a bit similar to Frankenstein because it deals with two creatures that no one understands.

They are both a result of DNA research and are unlike anything that you've ever seen.

In order to get a closer look at them, read the story.

It's about 500 pages long, but it's worth every second you'll spend with it.

2. NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

This novel is about a woman trying to save her son from a killer.

It takes place in 2008, but it flashes back to 1986.

It shows how far a person will go for their loved one, but it also shows you just how many horrible things people are capable of.

It's scary to think about, and even more terrifying to read about.

3. The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker

The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker

The Hellraiser movie was based off of this book.

If that's not a good enough incentive to read it, here's what it's about: a nihilistic man gets his hands on a puzzle box that opens new realms of reality.

The novel discusses the fine line between pleasure and pain, and will make you wonder about what life has in store for you.

4. 14 by Peter Clines

14 by Peter Clines

The main character in this book lives in a shabby apartment that is a bit bizarre.

However, he doesn't think much about it until he realizes that his neighbor has a similar eeriness to her apartment.2

In fact, everyone in the apartment building is dealing with a similar situation, and the main character wants to figure out why that is.
