Horn Book Review

Twenty contributors, including Stine, each offer a story that "begins or ends with a scream." The collection is uneven, with some tales--particularly Emmy Laybourne's "Bricks and Bones," Joseph S. Walker's "The Only Child," and Stephen Ross's "Feed the Birds"--successful in both responding to the prompt in a natural, original way and eliciting a shiver; others do neither; and a few seem better suited to a different anthology altogether.
