Is there such a category as Horror Sci Fi and if so I would be interested in any recommendations for a good read.

Given that, following Twitlight (sic), Vampires and Werefolk seem to have been subsumed into "Urban Fantasy", I think that "SF Horror" has descended to occasional film novelisations like Alien and Species.

If you just want SF with horrific elements, you could try Charles Stross' Laundry series, startting with "The Atrocity Archives".

I guess I could have reworded this thread better?

I was just interested to know if there was any Sci Fi that had a horror type theme/aspec to it.

Imagine being stuck in a spaceship for many months, but you have to live in your spacesuit with only a few days of air because the air system in the spaceship is contaminated with a spore that will very slowly kill you by rotting your lungs.

I think this was in a Brian Stableford story, but cannot remember which. However, he often comes up with some very black horrors to twist the mind.

You could try Blindsight : Two Months Since Sixty-Five thousand Alien by Peter Watts. Both SF and horror.

Brian Lumley mixes Horror and Sci-fi. The ideas are sometimes good, its just his writing is often a bit adolescent
