    Author, Peter Straub, 79

    Peter Straub, an author who helped usher in our decades-long fascination with horror fiction, had a way of weaving macabre and heart-wrenching prose into one sentence. Even stories about ghostly hauntings, sinister parallel universes or grisly murders could feel mournful, sensitive and cathartic in Straub's hands.

    From his seminal 1979 novel, "Ghost Story": "Nobody can protect anybody else from vileness. Or from pain. All you can do is not let it break you in half and keep on going until you get to the other side."
    An influence and friend to authors like Stephen King, Joe Hill, Neil Gaiman and many more, Straub left an indelible mark on the world of horror and fantasy fiction, helping to elevate it from disregarded pulp to a genre of consequence and depth.

    I love his books, especially the ones that he cowrote with Stephen King.

    Sad to hear about his death, I so remember the 1981 film
    of Ghost Story.
    Carolyn(1958-2009) always in my heart.
