There are a bunch of thrillers based on the 2012 end of the world hoopla but I can't think of pure horror.
How long is the vacation?

It's about 7 days of backpacking and bus rides across the area.
Ereader or hard copy? Weight and space will matter.

I'll have my iPad Mini but I can bring two small or one large paperback with me. I'm only bringing a backpack, no suitcase!
Okay, looking at your bookshelves, I'd say focus on ebooks (I've never used an ipad but will assume it holds a few books).
1 Stephen King you've never read.
High Moor by Graeme Reynolds (werewolves in the woods, just what you need and not too long)
A paperback from a used book store that you feel attracted to, without knowing anything about it.

If you're a fast reader maybe a couple more ebooks, but backpacking shouldn't leave loads of time for reading.

Thanks for the High Moor rec! I'm not familiar with that author but the book looks fun. Adding it to my shelf.
I loved it. Serious werewolf story, the kind where people get hurt. No one is exempt.

I too thought High Moor was pretty good. Another excellent werewolf tale is Robert McCammon's The Wolf's Hour.
I hadn't heard of that one... *clicks on another sample*

Love McCammon but haven't read The Wolf's Hour. Might have it already though so I'll look for it.

He's a HOT tall, dark hair, green eyed, werewolf and spy during WWII. Yeah. Good stuff. :)
Everything except WW2... I have an aversion there. I sent for the sample anyway.

Meanwhile, I googled Mayan Horror and found this boxed set. Can't vouce for quality, but samples are your friend.
