Terrifying Tales to Tell at Night: 10 Scary Stories to Give You Nightmares!Terrifying Tales to Tell at Night: 10 Scary Stories to Give You Nightmares! by Stephen Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed all ten of these entertaining, spooky stories.

There are contributions from Ramsey Campbell, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Lynda E. Rucker, Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Manly Wade Wellman, Robert Shearman, Lisa Morton, Michael Marshall Smith and Charles L. Grant.

My favourite story was The Man Who Drew Cats by Michael Marshall Smith. Although it is a bit predictable, it is heart-warming and you can’t help feeling fulfilled by the outcome.

What makes this little book even better, elevating it from good to great, is a series of excellent illustrations by Randy Broecker.
