Creepy Campfire Tales vol. 1 features 11 all original horror stories that take place during the Halloween and Autumn season in New England and Ohio state parks, though some are at even more secluded camp sites or cabins. All are great tales to read or tell around campfires since a campfire or campground is an integral part of every story. These are not lame retellings of urban legends or outdated ghost stories, but rather innovative rural horror. You'll feel the coziness of a warm campfire on a cold October night as unexpected horrors unfold during pumpkin carving contests, Halloween hayrides, and within the darkness of nearby bodies of water. Experience shapeless monsters, demonic spirits, scarecrows gone wild, zombies, a vampire, an evil radio station, hideous creatures in the woods, and more. The level of horror rises as the book progresses, but the series also aims to interject some spooky fun, although most of the stories end on a rather horrific note. This book is aimed at the young adult market and every story but one feature teens as the main characters, but many adults, including librarians who love great Halloween stories, have enjoyed it. This book has been received with gasps, shivers, and even a few nervous chuckles at readings the author has done at public schools and state campgrounds (See www.JamesDAdams.com for testimonies from school staff and students).
Most of the Stories take place in October, with one in September, many during Halloween camp outs at state campgrounds in.
