List: Top Ten 20th Century Horror Authors

Date: October 1999

Source: Arcana

Base: 19 attendees of the Arcana 29 convention completed ballots - mentioning 52 authors.

Notes: From the web page (link above): "Not a big sampling, but it does represent about a third of the attendees, and the Arcana convention has a group with a good knowledge of the field... When we tallied the results we reversed the ranking so that "number one" picks got 10 points, "number two" got 9 points, and so forth." Respondents were also invited to name their Top Ten 20th Century Horror Movies - you can see these results at the link above.
