Kimberly Turner published a piece on Lit Reactor titled, “7 Horrifying Ailments Named After Literary Characters.” I believe she missed a few, but then Turner wrote about real ailments. Here are a few phobias I developed from reading books.
Marathon Man made me afraid of the dentist.
Ever since Psycho, I lock the bathroom door when I shower.
The Ghost and the Darkness made me fear tall grass.
2001: A Space Odyssey convinced me computers were out to get me.
Apollo 13 made me afraid of the number 13.
The Da Vinci Code kept me away from art museums.
The Shining made me avoid long, empty hallways.
