And to celebrate, here is a book of short horror stoires written specially for young readers.
5 to 95 (Suggested for all readers)
Afraid of Everything by Adam Tierney
Featuring 26 terrifying short stories each based on a different A to Z phobia, this book is perfect for the young reader who wants a real scare.
I found this book of scary stories at a recent Long Beach Comic Con being sold by the author, Adam Tierney. He told me that when he was a growing up in the mid-80’s that he loved reading scary stories and watch scary movies and that now he has a kid of his own who also loves horror. But in this day and age, horror related stories for kids have gotten a lot tamer. So, he wrote this book. To learn the full story, click on the Kickstarter link below:
I told him I liked his idea of using phobias and asked him if he had heard of the fear of long words; Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. He said no. I’m hoping if he writes a sequel he’ll include more weird phobias like Nomophobia (the fear of being without cellphones) and Sidonglobophobia (the fear of cotton balls).
I am happy to say that I’ve gone through this whole book and everything is just the right amount of scary. Scary enough to give you shivers but not scary enough to keep you from reading.
