Try something by Joe R. Lansdale. "Drive In" is a fantastic novel. The "Books Of Blood" by Clive Barker are great as well... perhaps you like them, too :-)

some of dean koontz's books are quite good - i personally think one of the chapters in Watchers was one of the scariest pieces of horror ever written.
james herbert is also very good (he is a british author) - not sure how famous he is in the states.

Try John Saul, Poppy Z. Brite, Kathy Koja, Nancy A. Collins, Peter Straub. Personally, I love Stephen King, but to each their own. :D

Lovecraft's Dream Cycle is an excellent read.

The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker - it's the book that Hellraiser is based on. Anything by Clive Barker is usually good, though. Also, splatterpunks one and two - awesome collection of short horror stories. You can read the stories and find new authors.

I work for a new horror publisher Nephilim Books so as long as it is not too unseemly I would like to recommend one of our own. Look for Abandon All Hope on the search engine of your choice or go to the official company novel site http://www.abandon-hope.com
Depending on what kind of horror you like, it may or may not be something which interests you.:D
