Gaslighted: Slappy the Ventriloquist Dummy vs. Aloysius Pendergast by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, R. L. Stine

In this entry from the thrilling short story anthology FaceOff, bestselling authors Douglas Preston&Lincoln Child along with R.L. Stine team up for the first time ever, pitting FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast against the most unusual villain he’s ever faced—Stine’s classic creation: Slappy the Ventriloquist Dummy.

First introduced in R.L. Stine’s 400 million-copy bestselling Goosebumps series, Slappy is a dummy carved from coffin wood who boasts enormous strength and a sarcastic, sadistic personality. In contrast, Agent Pendergast is an elegant, intelligent man who never lets himself be ruffled by the particulars of an investigation. Yet when these two meet for the first time—at Stony Mountain Sanatorium—Pendergast is quite clearly out of his element, and nothing is as it seems…

For more exciting pairs, check out all eleven stories in FaceOff!

This short story makes no sense. It is far too short, even for a short story, and the ending leaves major confusion. Don't bother. I wish I hadn't. Stephanie Clanahan
