Overview

Includes two free additional short stories.
That's three 'terrorific' short stories for one low price.

Playing hide-and-seek in a cemetery is disrespectful. When it happens to be cursed, the results can be deadly. Or even worse, as Jason finds out when he takes a bet to play an ill-fated game on Halloween.

Includes the bonus short story: Brother's Keeper - Zack would be wise to spend less time looking for his missing sled and more worrying about what is lurking outside. Too Bad, he's not the only one who'll have to pay for his single-mindedness.

Also includes the bonus short story: Grandpa's suits - A game of spin-the-bottle with the school pervert isn't a bright idea. Fortunately for Zoey, she's not quite alone.

These stories are not recommended for kids under 8.

Then when I had finished reading it, my only thought was : If only that could happen to all of them. 5 Star Review.

I really liked these scary stories. They are short and easy to read. I didn't know what was going to happen until it did. It wasn't TOO scary though, so I didn't end up having nightmares. They were more suspenseful then scary. They reminded me of the Goosebumps stories that I really like.
Michelle Red Adept Reviews
...it appealed to my inner kid sitting around the campfire - these could be urban legends in the making. This seriously creeped me out. Fun and scary for (almost) all ages. The perfect style for the stories told.

These three short stories remind me of Goosebumps, or more like Fear Street, if you remember those. They are not for adults, but for teenagers/ young adults. Just a little darker and edgier, but not real horror. I liked all three, the last featured female teens which was nice, as usually these types of books are written for guys. The stories are short, but there's 3 for 99 cents. They are all dark and fun, spooky, not scary. I was surprised by the ending of two of the three. I figure that's worth 4.5 stars.

If you're looking for some scary stories to read around the campfire, at Halloween maybe, with the kids wide-eyed and never going to sleep-well, most definitely never going to sleep in the nearest haunted coffin-this book's for you. M.J.A. Ware's tales are told in a pleasantly chatty first-person style, the voice convincingly that of a young teen put-upon by sisters, brothers, parents, friends and the rest of the world. until the rest of the world jumps in with scares aplenty. Hide-n-Go Coffin tells of a little brother trying to prove he's big and strong. But there's a very modern twist waiting when he innocently slips into traditionally scary danger. Brother's Keeper is the haunting tale of a boy obsessed with blaming his brother for everything; this dark winter's night holds horrors definitely not for the younger kids. (Let's make this age 8 plus.) Then Grandpa's Suits, rather pleasingly, changes the voice to that of a teenage girl, making this a delightful collection to read with a group. The author provides a truly scary spin on the popular game of spin-the-bottle, and ends the collection by inviting readers to sign up for his mailing list or look for his novels. With titles like Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb they're bound to be a hit. And then you can go to his website, if you dare. where you'll find Steven, Space Stowaway, a brave young adventurer who's just too scared to stay with his aunt; he might have even worse dangers to face out in the place where no one hears you scream. Or, if you want a slightly longer read, there's Monster in the Mirror, another fine collection of scary stories (which includes poor Steven's tale). Disclosure: I was sent an ecopy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
