Doyle, Dickens, Kafka, King, Lovecraft, Woolf - all almost immaculate writers and did various important things in their respective literature styles. Nice to see how Lovecraft is extensively read. jj2

I take you enjoy horror-laced gothic tales and novels. While I also share the same sentiment towards the older works, I must admit that Scandinavia gave birth to so many great thriller writers ( Jo Nesbø, Arnaldur Indriðason being prime examples, but there are still many others ). I am currently reading 17 anthology noir tales of Scandinavian ( well, mostly Swedish ) expanding from crime-detective type of thing to science-fiction. That book, as a compilation includes up to 20 writers ( Anna Jansson, Stieg Larsson, Åke Edwardson, Veronica von Schenck, Johan Theorin, Dag Öhrlund, Eva Gabrielsson, Malin Persson Giolito, Katarina Wennstam, Cilla & Rolf Borjlind, Åsa Larsson, Camilla Läckberg, Inger Frimansson, Henning Mankell, Håkan Nesser, Maj Sjöwall & Per Wahlöö, Sara Stridsberg ).

And I would recommend Faulkner trip ( since Woolf also incoporates stream of consciousness technique ). He is almost Dostoevsky level dark and his fictional landscape of American South is impeccable. His novels are sometimes difficult to read ( The Sound and the Fury especially, but Sanctuary as well ), but rarely miss hitting hard enough ( Light in August and one of my favourites from him - Absalom, Absalom! ).

Basically, there is really a lot to unpack from classical literature, but modern crime novels ( just like older ones ) have their way to demonstrate themselves profound if they try and are willing so. Those two huge type of books I mostly gravitate to.
