In addition to a large number of classic horror books that are now in the public domain, readers fond of thrills and chills can also find more contemporary fare for free. Things that go bump in the night has been a firm literary favorite of both authors and readers for a long time, which means there are plenty of stories to choose from. So, if you are ever in the mood to experience the adrenaline rush that a good horror story can provide, then take your pick from any of the free ebooks on this list. All of them were written after 2000 and, who knows, you might even pick up a survival tip or two in the event that your worst nightmares ever come true.
