ABDULLAH HARAHAP, a writer of horror fiction, died #onthisday in 2015. His obituary (in Indonesian) written by Ugoran Prasad appeared in @jakartabeat July 18, 2015—the day after what would have been his 72nd birthday. His name may not ring a bell among young Indonesians, but ask anyone who was in their teens in the 1970s, and chances are they can remember feeling terrified after reading one of his best-selling horror-mystery novels.
