Darkness falls. We sit by the roaring campfire, faces illuminated by the fire. A full moon glows above. The shadowy trees appear eerie as their branches sway in the wind like long, sinewy arms. Every sound has menacing overtones. And now,...

Spooky Campfire Tales

[spine]  Spooky Campfire Tales   [Schlosser] [Fall River Press logo]

[front flap]

Darkness falls. We sit by the roaring campfire, faces illuminated by the fire. A full moon glows above. The shadowy trees appear eerie as their branches sway in the wind like long, sinewy arms. Every sound has menacing overtones. And now, the time has come, to tell spooky stories and folktales . . .

·         A freight train is coming and a couple is trapped inside a car stalled in the dead center of the railroad tracks. Suddenly, the car is given a shove from behind!

·         It’s said that on foggy nights, a mother’s spirit returns to the marshy lands looking for her missing daughter and seeking vengeance against men.

·         A weekend getaway takes a frightening turn as an unwelcome guest makes a spectral appearance.

·         Trying to keep warm, a woman is sitting too close to a small stove and doesn’t notice that the fire is burning through the heavy wool of her skirt. In her terror, she runs outside but the winds turn the licking flames into a glowing inferno.

In this illustrated collection from master storyteller S. E. Schlosser and artist Paul Hoffman, you’ll find thirty spooky campfire tales in all. But you don’t have to wait until you’re out camping to enjoy them. Any night at home will do just fine.

[back flap]

Prepare to be scared by spooky stories like these:

“As he walked through that cemetery, a strong breeze picked up and started howling around his head. He could hear creepy voices in the wind, moaning, ‘Eddie . . . Eddie . . .” Skin crawling and hands as cold as ice, Eddie started hurrying homeward as fast as he could . . . Suddenly, the ground opened up in front of him. . . . Then a skeletal hand reached up and wrapped itself around his leg.”

“’Will the baby really be a devil, Mama?’ her eldest son asked her timidly after a particularly loud thunderclap. ‘Yes, my son,’ she replied calmly. “And you must take your brothers and sisters far away when it is born, or you will suffer the same fate as your father.’”

“As I traveled down the dark, wet highway, I could not shake the feeling that someone or something was watching me. I kept looking in the rearview mirror and glancing into the backseat. No one was there. Don’t be ridiculous, I told myself, wishing fervently that I was home in my bed instead of driving on a dark, rainy night.”
