Voice

In any writing genre it is important to have a distinct, clear voice. This is especially true in horror, where the desired effect the writer wishes to produce in the reader is greatly dependent upon setting a specific mood. Both Poe and Lovecraft had exceptionally distinct voices and their works are remembered 79 years after the death of Lovecraft and 167 after the death of Poe.
