Publisher's Summary

This book contains 101 bite-sized horror stories that are intended to scare and unsettle you. These are real peoples' accounts of the creepy and the occult - of their near-misses with madmen and paranormal entities. Each chapter is a short, standalone campfire tale, a retelling of a frightening or gruesome incident that has stuck with the teller, something that gives them pause to this day when they find themselves alone in the dark. These stories have been collected with the knowledge that real life is scarier than fiction.

stories were too short

The stories were too short. Not enough time to build suspense. Stories lacked details like location and timeframes.

101 low budget horror movie pitches in 2 hours

As a physical book this must have been one of the greatest bathroom reads.
As an audio-book with such pitch perfect reading, this is one of the scariest listens while driving home late at light.

Love it!~

True Ghost Stories Comfort and Let You Know You’re Not Crazy

101 True Scary Stories to Read in Bed Tonight is a good read. It reminds me of a book I still have from my childhood called True Ghost Stories Tales of the Super Natural Based on Actual Reports. The stories are short and scary leaving you to question and relate sometimes. I highly recommend this book if you want to get the feeling of dread and if you enjoy freaking out. It is a perfect time to listen to these stories while you’re decorating for Halloween. This book really gets you in the Halloween spirit.

A fun array of fear fables!

This was a very enjoyable collection of “real” horror tales. Any fans of spooky urban legend stories should check this out!

One of the few worthwhile Scary Story books out there, but difficult to follow due to rapid-fire format

I loved the Scary Stories trilogy so much, growing up, that I turned the entire set into leveled reading probes for my K-3 students, to make literacy-building fun and absorbing. (This involves counting and numbering every letter in every word and figuring grade level with formulas, so I must love them). I’m not going to tell you this is similar to the Scary Stories set, but it is one of the few other Scary Story books I would recommend. This is true folklore, from ghost stories to urban legends, with themes updated for the digital age. Though short, they contain elements like suspense, jump scares, modern parables, and ambiguous endings which gel, horrifically, in your mind. That is, IF you can figure them out in the 2 second pause between stories. I found myself having to press pause between stories to understand what happened, and where the next story starts. Even listening to the book a few times in a row didn’t give me the time and sense of where each story ends. They are pretty simple stories, but the format and delivery were dizzying. Especially if you are playing these for children, be aware that it’s not one you can turn on and eat lunch, do housework, or grade papers and expect them to get something out of it. I would want to pause between stories and check for comprehension, and to let them know a new story is coming. I like to listen to scary stories at bedtime (just like when I was 11 lol), and I had to come back and get a better sense of the content during the day. It got my mind more wound up than relaxed. Amateur YouTube story channels know to play a tone or spooky sounds between stories, and leave a significant pause. The stories are good enough that I still think it’s a wonderful addition to a spooky collection, but I’d rather have it in paperback. If it doesn’t exist, I may have to type it out. Not for distribution, of course, but for my own read-aloud use, so the stories are easier to understand.
