Drawing Blood by Poppy Z. Brite
Waterstone's synopsis:

Sex, blood and a haunted house - presented here from the master of gothic horror. At a house in Missing Mile, just outside New Orleans, little Trevor McGee found the bodies of his brother, his mother, and the man who killed them both - his father. Twenty years later, the house lies abandoned. Trevor returns, with his lover Zach, a fugitive computer hacker, determined to uncover what drove his father to madness and murder. But in confronting the demonic forces that destroyed the McGee family, Trevor unleashes a new terror. And risks his life all over again ...From the author of the original cult novel of vampire chic, "Lost Souls", comes a graphic, gothic tale of love, lust and a haunted house of horror.

I'm told over and over again by various people that I should read Poppy Z. Brite, but I just keep putting it off, so I have finally added one to my wishlist in the last week that sounds like it might be a good read. I don't tend to read too many books from the horror genre - some are close but they're still technically 'fantasy' or 'fiction' in the bookshops. I think this one sounds intriguing, so when I have a little more space for more books, I will get it on those shelves and eventually read!

I don't really like horror - they're a bit too scary for me, but this one sounds very interesting! I'll check it out :)

My first time to join in the hop! :)

I do like gothic horror too so that book you linked to sounds interesting. There's another author I really like called Marcus Sedgwick who writes old fashioned gothic dark horror. He's not that popular (I hardly know anyone who's heard of him), but I do like his style ("My Swordhand is Singing" etc).

I've heard of Marcus Sedgwick - I work in a book shop, so I've seen quite a few of his hanging around. They're all children's fiction (in the 9-12 years section) that I've seen. Minus White Crow, which I think is a teen/YA.
