This is a collection of scary stories from R.L. Stine.  There is a brief page before each page that tells what his inspiration is before the story is told.  Most of these stories are corny, but young horror lovers will enjoy these stories.  The only one I as an adult really liked was "I'm not Martin" for the sheer irony and "The Black Mask" was pretty good.  This is not really for older kids or adults, it is a great little collection for the younger group though.
