Oh, thought of one more...   "Dreamside" by Graham Joyce.  It's about an experiment in lucid dreaming where four student participants create a shared dream realm and the consequences of what they do there.
Lovecraft is great, I agree.  Also, Poe, especially "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym."  Follow that up with Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness."  It was written as almost a companion piece to "Pym."
After "House of Leaves" you may have a hard time finding a horror novel that meets your expectations.  King is an above-average writer in the genre, but nowhere near the level of Danielewski, in my opinion (and I've read a lot of King).  I'd suggest taking a different direction.  Maybe don't go for something that takes itself too seriously.  How about "John Dies At The End" by David Wong?  It's definitely a horror novel, but also a comedy, as strange as that sounds.  The...
I just got a pair of these today and have to say that I'm impressed.  Yes, like you say, the sound quality is only mediocre.  But they are enjoyable with the right set of expectations and with some kind of bass boost.  The comfort and build quality really caught me by surprise.  I was specifically looking for something I didn't have to worry about breaking and thought, "Heck, 8 bucks a few of times per year... not too bad."  But they actually don't feel like they're...

They are easy to deal with and provide a pleasurable (though not particularly accurate) sound straight out of very underpowered sources. So far I've had no issues...
Just to be a complete idiot, I plugged them into my MiniBox and engaged the bass boost. The result was ridiculous.

Ialso think the filtered Comply is made of a different material than the original Comply and is more pliable or "squishy". I've had a Comply stuck on my Ety for over a month now with no sign of wear or tear. Don't know why some folk think they're...
