Are you an avid fan of scary stories? Rather than frightening you, the sordid tales of gruesome deaths and ghastly ghosts fascinate and stimulate you-so you are always on a quest for terror-filled tales. Terror-filled stories are read to test one's nerves, and obviously to scare. Moreover, it's the mystery mingled with the horror that really beckons people to pick up a scary story. They can't live without satisfying their curiosity. After all, the tales with a hidden killer or a ghost's possession are weaved with an underlying depth of mystery. Scary stories can set your heart racing and scare the wits out of you. You read them for your entertainment and because you are fascinated by the terror emphasized in them. But what exactly are they? Horror stories are those tales that captivate readers via either bloodshed or supernatural beings, like ghosts or demons. Paranormal beings terrify us because they have powers that are beyond our comprehension. On the other hand, scary stories also illustrate the dark side of humans and what they are capable of doing if evil rests in their hearts. A person only gets frightened of what they actually fear, but fear is a rather broad term. Everyone is afraid of one thing or the other. The mere mention of ghosts might make you tremble, but your friends might enjoy ghost stories, and they can abide with gruesome stories of ruthless killings and lot of blood. Despite the aftereffects of these stories-nightmares, trouble going to the bathroom alone-people still can't seem to get enough of them. Readers are spurred on to continue reading by nerve-wrecking questions like why, who, how, and what will save the victims. This book contains some interestingly macabre and hair-raising short stories that will entice you and your terror-loving spirit. Horror and mystery go hand in hand to bring you short stories that will provide you with tales worth remembering. These six short stories are an interesting read, if you're looking for something scary riddled with mystery to read. What are you waiting for? Buy now

Too dark? Wait until the third book!

They entered the old prison. Summer had just started. It was an abandoned prison, just the two of them. Kylie and Destiny. "I don't know why we have to do this." Destiny grumbled. It wasn't the highlight of her day. "I want to see what it looks like on the inside." Kylie whined at her. Kylie was for adventure and Destiny was not. They went through the gate. There was no turning back now. The rusted metal sign "Keep out." Didn't keep them out. Walking up and down the cell blocks it didn't take Destiny long to see that she wanted to get out of there. "Look!" She cried out, her voice echoing off the walls. There were human remains in one of the cells and the more they passed they saw remains of some even clinging to the bars. "You'd think that someone would clean these out." Destiny was shaking. She'd never seen human bones before. They went to the office where the warden would be if it wasn't abandoned. Going through the drawers Kylie found papers that stated the deaths. The pictures were gruesome. There were pictures with the warden smiling next to the dead inmates. "No one had called these in." Kylie gasped, her eyes growing wide. "Cold-blooded murder." Destiny winced. There was a loud banging sound. Like a metal cup running up and down the bars. Someone was singing. "Who could it be?" Destiny asked, whimpering. She was scared...

 Ghost stories have played a prominent role in childhood. Circulated around playgrounds and whispered in slumber parties, their history in American literature is little known and seldom discussed by scholars. This book explores the fascinating origins and development of these tales, focusing on the social and historical factors that shaped them and gave birth to the genre. Ghost stories have existed for centuries but have been published specifically for children for only about 200 years. Early on, supernatural ghost stories were rare—authors and publishers, fearing they might adversely affect young minds, presented stories in which the ghost was always revealed as a fraud. These tales dominated children’s publishing in the 19th century but the 20th century saw a change in perspective and the supernatural ghost story flourished.
