My husband is trying to convince me that Sandman Slim would qualify
http://booklikes.com/sandman-slim-richard-kadrey/book,5076910
Murder by Death
We'll trust his judgment - added.
Wanda's Book Reviews
Do you think that Silence of the Lambs or Red Dragon would count for this?
Familiar Diversions
I just spotted The Silence of the Lambs on a list of slasher horror books, so I'd say yes.

Here's the list: https://www.bookscrolling.com/best-slasher-horror-books/
Familiar Diversions
Although the longer version of the list (all the way at the bottom) includes Charlaine Harris's Dead Until Dark, which I wouldn't have considered a slasher book. Hm.
Wanda's Book Reviews
I've decided to go with Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. That seems more my speed.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
ISBN for Slasher Girls and Monster Boys (Various Authors) is 9780147514080.
Murder by Death
Thanks - already on the list though. :)
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
