I listened to most of this collection while up late decorating for Christmas- so while not seasonally appropriate, I enjoyed this spooky background on my endless trips from the basement and back! Some of the stories fit in with the original spirit of the Schwartz collection better than others- some more silly than spooky like the original “Viper”. I thought “The Golden Peacock” and “Brain Spiders” especially matched the creepiness of the original!

Husband loved this horror short story collection can anyone recommend similar books. He also likes Darcy Coates short stories but not full length novels

Mrs_B Maybe these: Amazon kindle do some good collections of short stories by genre, they‘re called “megapacks” I like the sci fi ones! 1y

I loved the idea behind this collection of stories, but only a few really felt like they could have been in a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark collection.

This was a fun compilation of creepy short stories to get me in the Halloween spirit. Definitely not as scary as Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark but still enjoyable. They had a pretty decent group of authors contribute to the collection including RL Stine, Z Brewer, Madeleine Roux, Luis Alberto Urrea, and Michael Northrop. I think my favorite tales were 'The Neighbor", "The Open Window", and "The Garage".
