A home is often thought of as a place of refuge; somewhere that a person can feel safe, accepted, and that they have a deep emotional connection to beyond the material objects that fill it. Readers of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror especially know that a house is a different beast entirely. A house can be a magical place that exists beyond time and space. A house can run around on chicken legs or float through outer space. Often—especially in the genres I’ve mentioned—a house will turn on its occupants and drive them mad or be a deeply malevolent entity unto itself.
To encourage everyone to read more books with weird houses in it I have compiled a list of comics and novels to get you started.
