    I Also Recommend:

    Won the 2004 Bram Stoker Award for Young Readers (9-18), but good for adults too.

    9 top-notch weird tales in the tradition of The Twilight Zone, not reliant upon blood, gore, and violence, but instead creating suspense while tweaking the mind with odd ideas. Beat Dean Koontz and tied Clive Barker for the Stoker, arguably the world's top Horror prize. Its predecessor, Even Odder, was runner-up to Harry Potter for the 2003 Bram Stoker in the Young Readers category. Also in the series: Odd Lot (Ben Franklin Award) and Wicked Odd (Ippie Awards honorable mention). Back cover copy says Great for Classrooms, Campfires, and Car Trips. Author known as The Sinister Minister is the only ordained clergyperson ever to win horror's top prize, does frequent school visits.

    Oddest yet: Even More Stories to Chill the Heart

    This nine tale collection of chilling suspense that edges towards the realm of horror and fantasy genres targets the middle school aged child. The contributions are fabulous and adults will enjoy the entries too. Each tale is unique whether it pays homage to Stephen King (¿Storming Stephen King¿) or Devaney and Hoag struggling with a paranormal mystery (¿The French Acre¿ actually a longer short than the other contributions). The illustrations found in five of the stories add to the eerie feeling that something bad is about to happen usually to youngsters. Yet the key to ODDEST YET EVEN MORE STORIES TO CHILL THE HEART like its award winning predecessors is that the stars like the train muggers of ¿Uncle Bando¿s Chimes¿ using somewhat nasty language so that it seems real when a wind chime works its magic. It is amazing that the tales entertain with realistic protagonists although the format is magically short................... Harriet Klausner

    Oddest yet: Even More Stories to Chill the Heart

    This nine tale collection of chilling suspense that edges towards the corner of horror and fantasy genres targets the middle school aged child. The contributions are fabulous and adults will enjoy the entries too. Each tale is unique whether it pays homage to Stephen King (¿Storming Stephen King¿) or Devaney and Hoag struggling with a paranormal mystery (¿The French Acre¿ actually a longer short than the other contributions). The illustrations found in five of the stories add to the eerie feeling that something bad is about to happen usually to youngsters. Yet the key to ODDEST YET EVEN MORE STORIES TO CHILL THE HEART like its award winning predecessors is that the stars like the train muggers of ¿Uncle Bando¿s Chimes¿ using somewhat nastier language seem real even when a wind chime works its magic. The amazement is that the tales entertain with realistic protagonists although the format is magically short. --- Harriet Klausner
