FEAR: 13 Stories of Suspense and Horror

fear.jpgTurn the pages if you dare. . . . 13 amazing stories from thirteen true masters of suspense: ITW members R.L.

Paul Wilson, Heather Graham, Tim Maleeny, Ryan Brown, Suzanne Weyn, Heather Brewer (New York Times bestselling author of the Vladimir Todd series) and James Rollins – PLUS Jennifer Allison, Alane Ferguson, Peg Kehret, and Walter Sorrells.

Edited by none other than R. L. Stine, in this brand-new anthology of scary stories, nothing is what it seems. From cannibalistic children, to an unwitting date with a vampire, to a crush on a boy who just might be a werewolf, no scary stone is left unturned. A must-have for thriller fans of any age! Read more

“Thirteen highly suspenseful short stories, well selected by none other than R. L. Stine, who contributes the first tale, have the power to attract and delight many stouthearted young readers. The man behind the Goosebumps and Fear Street megaseries enlists some of the best in the business, such as Meg Cabot and F. Paul Wilson, Walter Sorrells and James Rollins, who offer plenty of heart-throbbing supernatural horror, crime suspense, shockers and sometimes a mixture of all three.” – Kirkus Reviews

PLEASE NOTE: All of the authors involved in this anthology have donated their stories to this effort. Half of the proceeds from the FEAR anthology go to support RIF (Reading is Fundamental).
