Strange voices in the night. Dead men walking. Unbreakable promises and unbeatable curses. Vampires, spirits, and sinister animals. All of these are to be found in Truly Scary Stories for Fearless Kids. Any kid who likes a good scare - and who doesn't? - will find plenty of them in this new collection of terrifying tales.

With nearly thirty authors represented, Truly Scary Stories brings together chills and thrills both old and new. Such grand old yarns as "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (about a certain headless horseman), "The Monkey's Paw," and "Dracula's Guest" are found alongside brand-new frights like "Lizard: The Devil's Plaything" and "Best Before". Besides short stories, there are haunting poems like "The Cremation of Sam McGee" and "The Geebung Polo Club," with rhythms that heighten the horror.

This collection will take unsuspecting readers on a strange and surprising journey. They will visit a ship adrift on the Pacific Ocean and learn of a strange moss that grows everywhere. They will meet a weary prospector at the North Pole, burdened with a promise to a now-dead companion. They will encounter witches in a lonely mountaintop cabin, and ghouls in a murky swamp.

Wherever they take place, many of the stories revolve around children. Kids can be found dodging cruel aunts or taking vanishing lessons from ghosts, playing with haunted electrical train sets or worrying about food rotting in the refrigerator. And just so that the terror isn't too nonstop, some of the stories are downright comical, promising laughs as well as shudders.

Whether funny or fearsome, these stories are guaranteed to hold readers spellbound well into the night - shivering with fright and delight.
