Death Walks Tonight: Horrifying Stories - Anthony Horowitz A short anthology of horror stories aimed at the YA reader.
includes:
# Secret Terror • Pete Johnson
# 25 • Battleground • Stephen King
# 43 • The Vacancy • Robert Westall
# 57 • The Twitch • Guy de Maupassant; trans. by Anthony Horowitz
# 65 • Freebies ["Call-Back"] • Laurence Staig
# 79 • Man from the South ["Collector's Item"] • Roald Dahl
# 97 • The Werewolf Mask • Kenneth Ireland
# 111 • Eels • John Gordon
# 125 • Jonathan Harker's Journal from Dracula [Dracula] • Bram Stoker
# 131 • Bath Night • Anthony Horowitz

Some not-so-bad stuff, some pretty good stuff, some quite forgettable stuff. My biggest question is: why bother putting together an anthology and make it so short? I guess they think younger people will be intimidated by "big" books?
