The Horrors: Terrifying Tales, Book One
Peter Carver

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.

Contributors include Don Aker, Diana Aspin, Karleen Bradford, Brian Doyle, Kristyn Dunnion, Sylvo Frank, Barbara Haworth–Attard, Martine Leavitt, R.P. MacIntyre, Rob Morphy, Kathy Stinson, W.D. Valgardson, Bill Valgardson, Alice Walsh, and Anne Wessels.

"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."
--School Library Journal
