Nice Collection

I always enjoy the collections put out by the International Thrill Writers and this was no exception. Some of the stories were better than others but overall it was a good listen.

Fun stories to get you into Halloween mood

I really enjoyed these short stories that had their own unique spin on horror. Nothing too gruesome, but suspenseful.

Happy listening!

Kinda lackluster, more sci-fi than horror

I was so excited to read this book, I loved R.L. Stein as a child. I was disappointed, these stories were hardly creepy and most of them were more sci-fi than horror. I wasn't a fan of most of the stories and only mostly liked about 3-4 of the stories. I was expecting creepy, spooky, makes you think, suspense, not lizard men on trains and people on an alien planet who are actually fleas... it just didn't have that zing. The best thing was the narrators, appealing voices and great voice changes for different characters. This book might be better for pre-teens and younger sci-fi/creepy fans.

thought it would be more RL stine

I'm a hardcore rl stine fan, and I was really looking forward to 13 stories from him, but they are from different authors. :(

Terrifying

This audition is perfect for the regular horror fan. Theee will be a story to suit each individual type. The voices were engaging and read really well.

Disappointing

First off, I should make it clear that this is aimed more at teenage listeners than adults, as I wasn't clear on that when I downloaded it - although maybe I should have guessed it when R.L Stine's name came up. I love horror short stories though so I gave it a try. Also many of the stories are thrillers rather than horror, although if I'm honest there's also a fair bit of sci-fi and superhero-esque fantasy in there as well. From an adult point of view, there's precious little horror to be had here, and the quality of some of the stories is pretty low - I was particularly disappointed by Stine and Heather Graham's entries, which were neither particularly original or interesting, and frankly a bit self indulgent - unless Stine really does think that teenagers horsing around in a car park is horror or suspense? Hmm. Some of the other stories were OK, stuff that I can imagine a more junior audience than myself enjoying with maybe a small chill and a good degree of interest and perhaps even some thoughts to take away for consideration later, but for myself I found it tedious. Credit where credit is due though, the various narrators were by & large very good.

"Fear" really doesn't belong in the title of this audiobook, the scariest thing about it for me was the blurb on the cover. And that disappoints me because there are so many better horror shorts out there, both modern and classic.
