Best Horror of 2010

Over on the Readers' Advisor Online, Cindy posted this list of the Best Horror of 2010:
Laird Barron – Occultation
Robert Jackson Bennett – Mr. Shivers
Justin Cronin – The Passage
Ellen Datlow, ed. – Darkness: Two Decades of Modern Horror (short stories)
Stephen M. Irwin – The Dead Path
Stephen King – Full Dark, No Stars
Jeff Lindsay - Dexter Is Delicious
John Ajvide Lindqvist – Handling the Undead
Dan Wells – Mr. Monster
Dave Zeltserman – The Caretaker of Lorne Field 
For the record, not all of these titles are horror in the strictest definition of the genre, but they will all appeal to your horror fans.  I also highly recommend Handling the Undead and Full Dark, No Stars on Cindy's list.  I have not reviewed these books personally, but they are good.

I am happy to see them recognizing horror not only at Halloween, but to their list I would like to add a few others.  Here are my personal favorite horror and horror-esque titles that I read in 2010.  All links are to my full reviews.
Other 2010 titles I would suggest to horror readers would be: 
Finally, I keep a review index of horror titles I have reviewed on this blog.  It is in the right gutter of every page of the blog.  Click here to access it right now.  These are only my original reviews.

Do you have a favorite that I forgot from 2010?  Share it with me by leaving a comment.
