My sons, even the reluctant readers, used to love R.L. Stine's books when they were kids. If M.J.A. Ware had been writing then, I'm sure they'd've loved his books too. The stories in this collection are short and scary and peopled with middle grade students just discovering their independence. The tension builds slowly in each tale then lets go in one powerful climax, startling even if you think you've seen it coming. And each story is deliciously intriguing. Monsters in the Mirror introduces a young boy and girl to their "new" home, but something's just not right, and Mom doesn't want to hear a thing about it. In the next tale, Steven stows away on a futuristic space-ship, thinking himself oh so brave. It doesn't take long for him to learn to be scared. Finally Bloody Marcy plays a simple scary game with evil consequences. Three more tales from master of mid-grade horror, M.J.A. Ware. If the tales don't scare you off, go visit his website and find out about his novel, coming soon. Disclosure: I'm thanking the author for a free ecopy by giving an honest review.

I got this for my son, but decided I better check it out first. I ended up reading the whole thing (though it's fairly short). It felt like reading something from an issue of one of those old Mystery magazines, except written for today's kids (RC cars, cell phones, etc). Recommended for kids over 8 or adults who's like that sort of thing.

MJA Ware has created several nice stories, but it was the previews to his books that I found very compelling. I already bought Zombie Juice, I'll be buying the The Little Wooden Chair. Mr. Ware is an author I will keep my eyes on.
