This is not to say that one should merely copy a story as some authors do. Drawing inspiration is one thing, but ripping off a fellow author is just a cheap shot. Except in the case of Stephen King... he's written everything over his long career it's hard not to step on his toes. Every time you see a horror story making fun of organized religion, using spiders or implementing children as a medium for paranormal means, you borrow from the King himself.
Anyway, I've kind of gone off on a tangent. The image to the right is also a link to Amazon, where for nine dollars you can get this new magazine full of creepy stories designed to make you look over your shoulder, or tell next time you go out camping and have a crackling fire in front of you with some friends!
