    Still awesome These books are filled with short stories written down by the great Alvin Schwartz These stories are comprised of myths, folklore and urban legends from all over the world But beware dear reader, these stories may be too scary for you Wonderfully written sets of little tales of horror These stories were a beloved part of my childhood I can still remember my friends and I staying up late at night sitting in a circle with a flashlight and these books and taking turns reading ou Still awesome These books are filled with short stories written down by the great Alvin Schwartz These stories are comprised of myths, folklore and urban legends from all over the world But beware dear reader, these stories may be too scary for you Wonderfully written sets of little tales of horror These stories were a beloved part of my childhood I can still remember my friends and I staying up late at night sitting in a circle with a flashlight and these books and taking turns reading our favorite stories to each other As we did our best to freak each other out so these stories remain ingrained in my memory They bring back fond memories and are still delightful to read even as an adult.Stephen Gammell s horrifying illustrations still give me the creeps even as an adult They are without a doubt the stuff that nightmares are made of.I look forward to seeing what Guillermo del Toro can do to bring these horrorifying images to life on the big screen As any true lover of horror will tell you, these books are a must to add to your collection And if you haven t already read them, then you definitely should Just remember to tell these scary stories in the dark Or you can watch my review on YouTube here

    I had all three of Schwartz s Scary Stories books as a child, and remember reading them over and over The tales are mostly re tellings of classic urban legends The stories are creepy, but what really made this book great were the disturbing images by Stephen Gammell I remember staying up late reading these stories and staring at the images with a mixture of fascination and horror.Seriously, pretend you re a ten year old girl for a second and just look at these Now an adult, I went in search I had all three of Schwartz s Scary Stories books as a child, and remember reading them over and over The tales are mostly re tellings of classic urban legends The stories are creepy, but what really made this book great were the disturbing images by Stephen Gammell I remember staying up late reading these stories and staring at the images with a mixture of fascination and horror.Seriously, pretend you re a ten year old girl for a second and just look at these Now an adult, I went in search of a copy of this book to share with my nephew who loves scary stories Much to my dismay, I learned that the original version with the images by Stephen Gammell is out of print and has been banned by several institutions The newer versions have a new illustrator and less creepy imagery Stephen Gammell s illustrations MADE this book If you re looking to buy, try to find an old copy if you can Make sure the seller s description says the illustrations are by Gammell It s totally worth it It will probably freak your kids out, but that s the whole point

    Just in time for Halloween The Gammell illustrated version I believe has enough surreal nightmare fuel to permanently shape someone s actual nightmares into that style for at least the next few decades of their life Beautiful art but so uncanny and eldritch.What s really neat about this series is how each book has sort of its own character , it even shows in the iconic illustrations as well.The original book is a mix of quirky ghost stories and American folklore, which like most folklore has Just in time for Halloween The Gammell illustrated version I believe has enough surreal nightmare fuel to permanently shape someone s actual nightmares into that style for at least the next few decades of their life Beautiful art but so uncanny and eldritch.What s really neat about this series is how each book has sort of its own character , it even shows in the iconic illustrations as well.The original book is a mix of quirky ghost stories and American folklore, which like most folklore has an astonishing death count, casual cannibalism galore, and is generally very morbid Still, it s a littlelighthearted than its sequels, having a lotsilly songs and humorous stories, and even some of the darker ones have funnier tones to them.Best Stories Me Tie Doughty Walker , The Haunted House , The Wendigo , The New Horse Score 4.5 5The second, my personal favourite, is a whole lotoccultish many of the stories feature black magic, the undead, shapeshifters, witches and devilish tricksters, but alsohuman villains murderers, and of course some friendly neighborhood cannibals an oddly specific recurring theme here It getsinspiration from urban legends and creepy superstitions than folktales.Book 2 also has a lot darker of a tone than the first, being preoccupied with death, entrapment, and curses that can t be undone, to the point where it s difficult to believe it was supposed to be a children s book.Best Stories The Drum , One Sunday Morning , Delicious Meat , The Window , Oh, Susannah , Rings on Her Fingers Score 5 5The third and as far as I know, last Scary Stories, is wayunrestrained, and the art is a whole lotLovecraftian looking It is easily the most unsettling visually of the three For example, the two illustrations on the title page before you even start reading the book are of some kind of demented embryo mutant, and whatever this is Yeah, that s just the title page.Three deals with a lot of weird, dreamy, almost cosmic horrors horrible, irreversible deeds and bizarre things happening for no reason other than the universe just hates the characters.Best Stories Harold , all of the Five Nightmares , The Swamp Score 5 5Overall Art 6 5Overall Stories 4.5 5Content None of it is insanely graphic in the writing, but there is a heavy lot of death and murder, darkness and strange horror There is another edition with far less morbid, but equally talented, illustrations by Brett Helquist, but the Gammell illustrated version is a classic

    I found the folklore very interesting I learned things I never knew before The ghost stories were particularly chilly Considering how deep I was into horror as a teenager these are perfect for that age group, even younger The illustrations are horrifying and perfect Beautiful really There should be an award.

    If you were born in the 80 s, there s no way you escaped reading the Scary Stories books when you were young This edition collects all three books, along with all those illustrations you remember I found the Treasury edition on sale while waiting for the DC to NY bus, and I had to have it I ve pulled it out at several black outs since then to scare my foreign national room mates who recognize some of the stories from versions in their home countries And yes, they can still be scary to twenty If you were born in the 80 s, there s no way you escaped reading the Scary Stories books when you were young This edition collects all three books, along with all those illustrations you remember I found the Treasury edition on sale while waiting for the DC to NY bus, and I had to have it I ve pulled it out at several black outs since then to scare my foreign national room mates who recognize some of the stories from versions in their home countries And yes, they can still be scary to twenty somethings As always, what really makes these books are the strange and oozing illustrations by Gammell These images were burned into my brain when I was seven, and it s amazing how vivid they ve stayed within my memory The stories are simply told and demand to be retold with your own personal flair As an adult, I was able to appreciate the Notes and Sources at the end of each book, listing the origin and analysis of the story After talking with my room mates, I almost wish there was a 4th book going beyond the Western Ghost stories Buy it Read it to your children You know you want to
