A theory about SEB's

Right, this may be me stating the obvious and feeling clever for working it out, but anyway.
You've got, in the Nextian diegesis, the real world, and the multi faceted bookworld.
Amongst the bookworld, there'll be horror novels. A fair number of those horror novels feature a person, or set of persons, trying to escape/ battle some dangerous unspeakable evil, which is often, at least within the context of the book, the incarnation of pure evil.
Now, in the nextian universe, characters can happily travel from bookworld to the real world and vice-versa. So what is to say that these unimaginable evils from horror novels don't come across, and Ta-da, Supreme Evil Beings.
It's mentioned in LIAGB that book travellers rarely go into horror novels, as they can be unsafe, so it is possible that these creatures do not realise that they are outside of their books, hence their solid belief that they are the very embodiment of pure ick.
Thoughts? Holes? Ideas?
Turn the silliness to eleven!
