This Goosebumps tale was our first prep for a zombie apocalypse, long before The Walking Dead came around. Wood is no exception.

The toy dummy owned by twin sisters Kris and Lindy comes to life, begins acting evil he even tries to strangle the family dog—traumatizing , and claims the twins are his slaves. Not even decapitating this wooden dummy can get it to stop its reign of terror who caused us to seriously rethink our own doll collections. One Day at Horrorland Advertisement The Creep Factor: Stine damn near ruined amusement parks for us with his tale of Horrorland—where, if the rides don't kill you like the horrifyingly titled Coffin Cruise , the horror monsters will.

But Stine added another terrifying location for us: Underneath the kitchen sink. It's genius, because even as an adult, it's a mysterious place the sounds that come out of there alone are creepy —and for kids, the possibility of monstrous sponges and terrifying under-sink creatures gave the perfect excuse to get out of dish duty.

When camper Sarah is sick of falling victim to the camp's mean girls, she decides to make them feel bad for her by pretending to drown in the lake morbid much?

After a few days of the relentless telephoning, one of the student senators started answering the calls by identifying herself as Pamela Winters. He would campaign for student senate president. Certainly, the student senate took campus politics very seriously but Stine had no intentions of running as a serious candidate. Candidates had to be juniors so that the winner could preside over the senate during his or her senior year. Enjoy yourselves! Regardless, Stine still managed to poll 1, write-in votes out of nearly 9, votes cast in the election.

It was quite an accomplishment. In the spring of , Stine accepted his diploma, earning a degree in English.

Now, he had to find a job. But what kind of job was available to a sharp-witted former college humor magazine editor? It would take money to travel, to rent an apartment, and to buy food until he started earning wages. Stine taught for a year in Ohio in order to save up some money. He then headed for New York City— where most of the major book and magazine publishers in the United States are headquartered—to try to make it as a writer. This is a picture of the New York skyline.

At this point in his life, Stine was broke. He did not have enough money to make the move.

He took a job as a substitute teacher at a local middle school, planning to work for a year, save his money, and then head for New York. There are kids who sit in the wrong seat. Stine was drafted, even though he had no love for history. He did try to encourage his students to read, though. Some students brought in books, but others brought in comic books, copies of Mad magazine, and similar publications that were hardly considered worthy of school time.

It was all okay with Mr. In fact, he often swapped comic books with his students and read them out loud to the class. One day, the principal came in to observe Free Reading Day. It so happened that the principal showed up just as Stine was engrossed in the latest adventure of Spider-Man. He scowled. Then he turned and stomped out. He never said anything to me about the class. Not ever. By then he had enough money to make the trip to New York. He would never look back.

This area around New York University has long been home to writers, artists, actors, and other creative people. At first, Stine struggled to make ends meet—for a time, he survived almost wholly on bologna sandwiches. He eventually landed with Scholastic Incorporated, one of the largest publishers of books and magazines for young people. New York University is located in Greenwich Village, giving the neighborhood a lively, college atmosphere.

Many writers have chosen to live in Greenwich Village.

The Beats challenged authority. They believed comfortable, suburban lifestyles were boring. They were willing to experiment with drugs. Beat writers were known to spend their evenings in dimly lit coffeehouses, listening to poetry readings and folk singers.

The pop star Bob Dylan got his start playing folk music in Greenwich Village coffeehouses. Stine arrived in Greenwich Village in , taking up residence in a tiny apartment on Waverly Place. Narrow streets lined with brick townhouses and apartment buildings. Crowds of artists, poets, writers. Bookstores that stayed open all night!

For months, Stine survived almost wholly on bologna sandwiches. I reminded myself I had more important things to do. I needed desperately to find a job. People read Institutional Investor to learn how to make money through the stock market. Stine knew something about production work because he had supervised the design of the pages for Sundial.

Still, he was hopelessly in over his head and was fired after one day on the job. He soon found another job. Again, there would be no opportunity to write funny stories, but at least this time Stine would have an opportunity to use his talent as a writer.

He found a job with a magazine publisher that produced publications for teenage readers. Mostly, they were fan magazines with names such as Mod Teen, 15, and Screenplay. Each magazine featured interviews with television, film, and recording stars.

On his first day on the job, the publisher told him to write an interview with Glen Campbell, a major television and recording star.

He asked her if she knew how to get in touch with the star. The publisher laughed. Suddenly, Stine realized what the publisher had in mind: he was to make up the interview. Except I never interviewed anyone. I made up all of my stories. Politicians, stars, and other famous people whose words have been made up by reporters have initiated significant lawsuits and collected millions of dollars in damages.

But in the s and before, magazines—particularly publications aimed at teenage audiences—regularly made up their interviews with the stars. The publicity helped them sell records and tickets to their movies. It was enough money to pay the rent. Suddenly, Stine could afford real food—no more bologna sandwiches. The company decided to publish a suspense magazine for teens titled Adventures in Horror.

Alas, the job ended too soon.

Stine had been on the staff for just a month when the company went out of business. Once again, Stine was out of work. But not for long.

He landed next at a magazine titled Soft Drink Industry. As the name suggests, it was the trade publication for soft drink manufacturers. It was read by executives in the industry and contained stories about innovations in bottling soft drinks, producing unique cans for soft drinks, developing new flavors for soft drinks, and selling soft drinks to soft drink consumers. He found the work tedious and showed little interest in the stories dreamed up by his editors.

One time, an editor assigned Stine to write a story about soft drink makers who had started printing advertising messages on their bottle caps.

Two weeks after they met, Stine and Jane decided to get married. Jane became a successful writer and editor and established her own publishing company, Parachute Press. As for Stine, he would finally reach his breaking point with Soft Drink Industry. In December , Stine found a job on the writing staff of Junior Scholastic magazine, which is produced by Scholastic Incorporated, one of the largest publishers of books and magazines for young people in the world.

The Ghost Next Door

Now, his job called on him to write 41 42 R. Stine found his writing talents in demand by publishers who wanted him to write adventure novels for young readers.

Some of the books he wrote were based on characters from other sources—Indiana Jones of the Raiders of the Lost Ark films, James Bond from the spy film series, and the action figure G. The G. Joe books were written under the name Eric Affabee. The interviews that ran in Junior Scholastic were not made up.

And the work was fast-paced. After three years working on Junior Scholastic, Stine was asked to take over a new magazine titled Search. Search was aimed at middle school students who were slow readers. Like Junior Scholastic, Search was mostly made up of stories about events and people in the news.

I had no interest in it. So it was a real challenge for me to be the editor of a social studies magazine! So the issues covered by Search were presented in a lively, off-the-wall style. He says: It was a very creative magazine. We had tremendous mail responses from teachers saying the kids loved it. But it was a little weird for Scholastic. Their other magazines, Junior Scholastic, Senior Scholastic, were very straight, and here we were doing all these strange things.

Finally, Stine would have the opportunity to edit a humor magazine, fulfilling a dream he harbored since his days back in Bexley when he would sneak off to the barber shop to read the latest edition of Mad magazine. All those hundreds of little magazines I had put together in my room when I was in grade school had led to this.

My own national humor magazine. There was an advice column written by a dog as well as a monthly feature following the antics of a fly named Phil. Flattery will get you everywhere. Bananas was intended to be pure fun. Stine says: The whole problem with doing humor for children comes from adults.

Adults have their right to read or watch trash. Editors at E. Dutton, a New York-based book publisher, found the magazine very humorous and believed Stine could be just as funny between the pages of a book as he was between the pages of his humor magazine. I spent several weeks thinking up ideas for funny books.

And the book I came up with was called How to Be Funny. My very first book was a very silly guidebook. Then, just as the final bell rings, I step up to the doorway and I 1 bang my head on the door frame, which causes me to 2 drop my books. I 3 bend over to pick up my books and 4 all the change falls out of my shirt pocket. Then 5 leaning down to pick up the change, I 6 rip my pants, 7 stumble over my math book, and 8 break my glasses, causing me to 9 walk into the wall and 10 fall headfirst into the wastebasket.

The show was launched in the fall of and remained on the air for three seasons before it was canceled, although Nickelodeon continued to show reruns through One time, a young girl visited the set with her mother. When she saw the puppeteers pick up Eureeka, Batly, and the other characters, she burst into tears.

He also found his talents much in demand by publishers who hired him to write adventure novels for young readers.

During this period, some of the novels he wrote were based on characters drawn from other sources. Sometimes he used pseudonyms. Another pseudonym he employed was Zachary Blue. Stine also coauthored a number of books with his wife Jane, who by now was the head of Parachute Press. How to Beat the Boredom Blahs. By now, Stine was a very busy author. He was swamped with requests from publishers to churn out humorous titles for young readers.

He soon found himself willing to accept the offers because in , Scholastic cut back on its magazine publishing division and closed Bananas. Would he consider writing a horror novel for young readers?

Stine that would eventually include more than titles. In all the books in the series, the characters are drawn into mysterious adventures on Fear Street, where a mansion owned by the sinister Simon Fear burned down amid strange circumstances. Now, Jean Feiwel had asked him to write a novel-length story.

She did make one recommendation, though, suggesting he name the book Blind Date. It would prove to be all he needed to get started. As his career as a horror writer developed, Stine learned that once he has a title in his head everything else seems to fall into place. He says: 51 52 R. Like The Baby-Sitter. Or The Stepsister. What would be scary about getting a new stepsister? The title will lead me to an idea about what the book should be. Although it was an accident, Kerry gets kicked off the team and is then beaten up by angry teammates.

Kerry has other troubles. The reader soon learns that Kerry is harboring his own dark secret. Kerry is immediately smitten by the girl, and when he meets Mandy he discovers she is a beautiful blonde.

Mandy is perky, smart, and unconventional. He saw that she had a ribbon in her hair, red and yellow hearts, the kind of ribbon a little girl would wear. Her eyes were pale blue, almost gray. They were translucent. Everything about her was light and pale—expect for her lips. Her mouth was wide, pulled up in a wide grin, and she wore dark purple lipstick, which looked even darker and more out of place against her powder-white skin.

He thought she looked like Alice in Wonderland, except for those purple lips. Donald breaks out of the mental institution, and Kerry is worried that he is headed home and is possibly homicidal. Kerry starts receiving threatening phone calls. All the pieces fall together at the end, when Kerry solves the mystery but finds himself enduring painful torture and nearly falling victim to a killer.

But there is plenty of suspense and a strong dose of the type of spooky writing that would soon come to make Stine an immensely popular author among young horror fans. He had school friends who lived on Sycamore. But in the dark silence of a cool autumn night, it all looked different. The old houses, carefully shrouded behind tall evergreens and walls of hedges, took on an aura of mystery. Leaves fluttered in the pale light of the street lamps, casting moving shadows that made the smooth lawns seem to churn and bubble as if alive.

Publishers Weekly, the main voice of the book 53 54 R. He followed Blind Date with Twisted, which told the story of a sorority whose members commit murder, and The Baby-Sitter, about a teenager who is terrorized while on a baby-sitting job. Stine says: I began to receive mail from my readers, asking for more scary books. I realized that after twenty-three years of writing, I found something that readers really liked.

As I read through the fan mail, I began to think: Maybe I should try writing a series of scary books. I discussed this with Jane and her partner at Parachute Press, Joan Waricha, and they thought it was a great idea. But we needed a name.

My new series needed a title. I grabbed a yellow legal pad from my desk. Rolling my chair over to the window, I prepared to sit there for as long as it took to come up with a title. One moment I was staring out the window.

The next moment, I had my title. Eventually, Stine would write more than titles in the Fear Street series for adolescent readers. Stine decided that all the books would be linked by one common element: the characters in each story would be drawn to mystery and adventure on notorious Fear Street, named after sinister Simon Fear, whose mansion burned down amid strange circumstances.

The street was cursed, people said. Terrifying howls, halfhuman, half-animal, hideous cries of pain, were said to float out from the mansion late at night. Cory pursues Anna, finding himself bewitched by her beauty.

Stine then embarked on a series of scary books for readers ages 8 to 12 called Goosebumps. Lots of thrills. Lots of wild twists and turns.

Again, Stine keeps the action moving. He puts Cory through numerous tests of courage, sudden plot twists, and heart-stopping jolts of terror. That would soon change. Eventually, the Fear Street series would include stories of mythical creatures and supernatural powers haunting the teenagers of Shadyside. For example, the series includes a trilogy of stories about Shadyside High School cheerleaders.

With the first few books in the Fear Street series, Stine set the tone for the dozens of books that would follow. The main characters would find themselves drawn into mysterious and sinister events in which their lives are placed in danger. The books would also feature adults—sometimes as evil characters, sometimes as helpful parents, teachers, or coaches.

Still, in a Stine book the responsibility for figuring out the mystery and dealing with the danger always falls on the shoulders of the teenage protagonists. The violence can be quite graphic at times while at other times the bloodshed is merely suggested.

There are social issues aired, to be sure—in both Blind Date and The New Girl, the theme of mental illness is explored by Stine. And yet, in all the books Stine is careful never to tread too heavily into difficult social terrain, believing that the stories should be regarded as entertainment for his readers.

I believe that kids as well as adults are entitled to books of no socially redeeming value. He would soon find himself much busier. Stermon gives them a suggestion, along with their friends Carter, Lee, Danitia, and Mia. She shows them a brochure about a scary old house on the edge of town, called Shudder Mansion. It's terrifying. Two sisters, divided by time.

Each with a terrible resentment she can barely contain. Two Fear family weddings, decades apart It feeds off the evil that courses through their blood. It takes its toll in unexpected ways, and allows dark history to repeat itself. Robby and his sister Karla beg their parents to take them to a big carnival that has opened on the other side of town. When they arrive, the two kids are delighted by the rides, the sideshow, the interesting displays, and the great food booths. They wander away from their parents and find themselves at a less-trafficked area at the back of the carnival.

Inside a large penned-in area, they see a dejected-looking boy about their age sitting on the grass. A sign on the tall metal fence reads: The kids are reluctant to disobey the sign, but the boy seems really nice.

Karla hands him her cone through the fence. He thanks her very politely. He eats the ice cream, delicately at first, then ravenously, noisily-and as Robby and Karla stare in horror, he transforms into a raging, hairy beast. Luke Harrison's dad makes horror movies. It's very fun to be around such scary stuff-especially when you have your own monster museum at home. But when two ventriloquist dummies join the collection, things get real creepy.

Devin and his sister Violet are visiting their Uncle Jack for the summer. He lives in an old house by the seashore. Jack was a sailor and he has collected strange and fascinating items from the sea. Exploring a back room, Devin and Violet discover a locked trunk. A pirate's chest. The trunk is wrapped in old, heavy chains and locked with a huge rusted lock.

Pay $8 or more to also unlock!

But they manage to get it open. They lift the lid slowly-and see that it's filled with antique jack-in-the-boxes. One box is hidden under the others, covered in dust. It plays an odd unpleasant song. Up pops a very ugly, mean-looking puppet, an old pirate with a dirty red bandana over his long greasy hair, scars on his cheeks, and a beard, and one eye missing.

Devin and Violet now face new and troubling questions: Will Jack return them to their uncle? Just how much is a pirate's promise worth? For the first time since the original series, R. The cheerleading squad at Shadyside has always been strong, but now there are rumors that lack of funds may mean the end of cheerleading at Shadyside.An outline helps me see whether or not the books make sense.

He found a job with a magazine publisher that produced publications for teenage readers. Lots of thrills.
