The last time we all came together to write a short story collection was for ‘Horror Stories’. Needless to say, we all had a real blast. As writers at Scare Street, we’re pretty much like a family, and love each other’s work. With short stories, though, it’s as if the family had decided to get together and go camping. And sitting around the fire, each of us would tell a story. The goal, of course, is to scare the others to the best of our ability.
And of course, to scare you, our readers. In this collection, some of the best short stories we’ve ever written come together, straight from that imaginary camping trip, and into your hands. We hope that they terrify you as much as they’ve scared us, and that you enjoy reading them as much as we’ve enjoyed telling them.
Stephen King describes a short story as a kiss in the dark from a stranger. So, friends and strangers, let’s turn off the lights, shall we?
And don’t mind that cold hand on the back of your neck … I never said we’d be alone.
