I've been looking for a good horror book, but I can't find any. Anybody have any ideas?

Good horror is a wide subject.
And the answers to that question will vary greatly.

But standard recommendations would be:
Stephen King - Pet Sematary
Donald Kingsbury - The Survivor (from The Man-Kzin Wars IV , SF novel)
James Herbert - Haunted
Kathe Koja - Bad Brains

From the classics section:
Edgar Allen Poe and Clark Ashton Smith come readily to mind.
