I fancy reading something scary...

I used to love the horror genre in my youth, but haven't really read anything scary for a while.

Ideally I'd like to read something by a great storyteller (in the form of Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, etc), and not too lengthy, though not a collection of short stories either.

Any recommendations?

Have you read 'The Woman in Black'?

I would recommend The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. The Sundial and The Lottery by the same author are also very good.

Also, Dark Matter by Michelle Paver

And, The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnott

Both of these are not too long and quite gripping. Stephen King's short story compilations are also very good - Full Dark, No Stars is my personal favourite.
