Laymon and Lansdale are both great examples, are in my mind are probably the
two standards for the mystery/horror hybrid, those who excel in both genres.
Others that you interest you:
* William F. Nolan
* David Morrell (though more of a thriller / horror hybrid)
* Dan Simmons
* F. Paul Wilson
* Ed Gorman, though his straight horror output is small (most under penname Daniel Ransom...though many of his short stories straddle both genres)
* Robert Bloch
Those are the ones who leap instantly to mind...I'm sure there are a bunch
more I'll think of as soon as I hit Send.
