It’s time for the Readers’ Choice results. We decided to implement this for the first time in order to give the wider horror community the opportunity to highlight their favorite read published in 2021 by an LOHF author. As this was our first try, we kept it very simple and asked for only ONE vote; an impossible task, we know. To our delight, the responses were varied and wonderful. This, however, means that we decided to highlight more than just one.
