Synopsis

Following his New York Times best–seller Nightmare Hour, R.L. Stine, America's master of horror for middle–grade readers, has created another fantastically nightmarish collection of stories. These were written, as Stine says, in the hour "when lights fade, the real world slips into shadow, and the cold, moonlit world of evil dreams takes over your mind." The stories in this new collection are illustrated with chilling black–and–white drawings by a variety of well–known illustrators. R.L. Stine's millions of fans will be screaming for more!

Ages 8+
