Survivor Type by Stephen King. 

Yes, this is pretty damn good. Definitely in my all-time top 3 horror shorts. It's published in King's Skeleton Crew, along with another couple of cracking stories: The Mist, and The Raft.

My favourite ever short story is Neil Gaiman's The Price.

In terms of horror novels, my all-time favourite is Southern Gods by John Hornor Jacobs.

Also, literally anything by Adam Nevill.

I will not mention classics and popular stuff like Anne Rice or Poe or Stephen King.

Hanns Heinz Ewers "Alraune". This novel is simply amazing. I recommend it for all who appreciate good horror literature. Also the short story by this writer "The Spider".

Algernon Blackwood "The Willows". It's a very creepy story.

Stories and novels by Poppy Z. Brite. "Lost Souls" and "Drawing Blood" are my favourites.

Cormac McCarthy "The Road".

John Fowles "The Collector"

Tales of E.T.A Hoffman

The Machine Stops, I think written around a hundred years ago yet very relevant today, is pretty cool.
