    Most of Koontz"s fair are actually considered thrillar even though he has written several that fall closer to the sci-fi type. Either way his books are really good reading. Of course then you have to mention Steven King The master of horror.

    you know, i really don't find his books that compelling. like, i hear such good things about his writing yet i can never place myself reading his books cover to cover.
    i'm probably just being biased here because i believe koontz has fallen into his shadow.

    books i recommend to read tho, by koontz are

    - strangers
    - the bad place
    - the door to december
    - intensity (not sci-fi but amazing)

    would it be breaking the rules to talk about authors who write thriller/suspense/fantasy/etc.?
