Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons. Floating Dragon by Peter Straub. Peter Straub is one of the more popular novelists on this list, thanks to works like Ghost Story and his collaborations with Stephen King. Floating Dragon also hinges on a recurring evil that preys on children every odd years—and it precedes It by a few years. The Fungus by Harry Adam Knight. Rather than meditate on the existential threat of a mushroom-borne apocalypse, Knight dives right into the oozy applications of weaponized fungus.

Carrie is a teenager chasing an ordinary life, never able to catch it. This is not due to her telekinetic powers, the problem has far more to do with her mother, a person that we will define religious zealot, to say the least. Consequence: Carrie is definitely fringe at school, she is constantly bullied. And unfortunately Carrie is about to reach her breaking point A history of bullying, a topic that the author describes so well also in many other pages, in my opinion. Object of the abuse each time is a character who, in the eyes of many, seems weird. The beautiful paradox of this novel is that, to other kids, Carrie's weird thing is not telekinesis.
