    This is a straightforward horror anthology, one which will definitely appeal to anyone who grew up with Goosebumps, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. At once nostalgic for adults and new for teenage readers, Scream and Scream Again! isn't hugely unique but it's fun to read each story and the book never stoops to being too dark or morbid. Some of the content was lost on me but will probably be recognizable for most...

    I have to say I really enjoyed this anthology of stories. It really harkens back to my childhood where there were all these scary story anthologies I used to read under the cover during middle school. And there were a large variety of stories-- some that were beautifully written, others with surprise endings, and others in the format that reminded me of stories written in the 90s. There were only a few that I didn't really get into, but I feel li...

    E ARC from Edelweiss PlusIt's so hard to write reviews for short stories, since no two are the same, they are fairly short, and (in this case), they are all sort of gory/scary and I don't care as much for those. This is, however, a book most middle school libraries need to buy. If your copies of Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark or Horowitz's Horowitz's Horror are falling to pieces (like mine are), you definitely need to purchase this....

    I received this ARC via my library director, who got it from the publisher at the PLA conference.This short story collection is perfect for Goosebumps fans. Though authors have written for middle grade all the way to adult, most of the stories are not too scary and end well. There are ghosts and witches and zombies and shapeshifters and creepy dolls. Strangely, two of the stories deal with cannibalism ("I Scream" and "The Trouble with Squirrels")...

    Genuinely enjoyed these little nuggets of RL Stine level lighthearted spooks. Perfect for young, reluctant readers. These stories have modern day references and characters kids can relate to. Any young reader, or baby of the 80s-90s will very much enjoy this.

    To be more precise this book was a 2.8 star read. Growing up R.L. Stine's work got the lion's share when it came to my reading time. It's been over 20 years since I last read a Goosebumps but I've continued to look back on them and Stine with fondness and plans to eventually revisit. Now having finished Scream and Scream Again I'm reconsidering those plans. Stine is only responsible for the first of the twenty tales but I found it to be a very w...

    Follow the infamous R.L. Stine and nineteen mystery writers of America as they take readers down the haunting path of a screaming good time. A collection of twenty stories that all start or end with a scream, these authors know how to chill their readers to the bone. From everyday stories, that turn into frightening tales, this anthology will send shivers down your spine. If you love spooky stories all at once, or read slowly in small doses, this...

    I received a Early Digital Edition of this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.Going into this I hadn't read an R.L Stine book since I was in Elementary School. It was an enjoyable read, however having read some more adult horror and the like, this fell short for me, simply because of that. It was more of a fun light read.A few stories did stick out to me though, and I really enjoyed them. They include:The Best Reven...

    I got this as an ARC, so changes may have been made. Overall, pretty good. My only complaint would be that you could tell a few writers cheated a bit and did the required 'start with a scream or end with a scream' by adding a 'scream' at the start of a story they probably already had ready, and then did something I HATE-invalidated an opening premise the next sentence. Nothing makes me skip a story faster, or a book for that matter, then an openi...

    Book received from giveaway"Scream and scream again!" is a collection of short stories by various authors. The stories are scary enough to sit down and read aloud amongst family to enjoy together. The book would also be a perfect gift to give to someone in late elementary to early middle school as it would fall along right in their age group. Coming from various authors some stories had unique twist an turns, others where way scarier than the res...

    A digital copy was provided by Edelweiss Plus in exchange for an honest reviewIf I read it when I was 10-13 years old, I'd probably be scared. But since I read it now, while it was a fun read, I barely felt anything. There are some stories that stood out to me, such as The Witch of Byron's Bayou and Area Code 666, but the rest felt okay to me. I still recommend it for middle grade readers though!
