Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice, 2006
This chilling collection brings together fifteen spine tingling tales written by some of Canada's leading writers for teens—and also a number of talented emerging writers. Each of these stories illuminates a distinct path through fearful territory—for readers fourteen to forty and beyond who thrive on the stimulation of a chilling tale. Enjoy
them if you can. Enjoy them if you must.

"The Horrors runs the gamut from Stephen King–like gore . . . to gentle ghost tales."
–Quill & Quire
"Readers who loved R. L. Stine's Goosebumps and Fear Street when younger may find that these stories fill the void when they reach high school years."
