The Returning

DUDE. Check it:

R.L. Stine to relaunch the Fear Street series

R.L. Stine is revisiting Fear Street. The longtime horror author (and Eureeka’s Castle head writer) killed his young-adult series in 1995, but will revive it just in time for Halloween 2014, when Thomas Dunne Books will release the first new Fear Street book in nearly 20 years, Party Games. In a statement, Stine said he’s stoked to “explore new horrors"—though with 52 existing Fear Street books, and 101 other Fear Street-based books in various spinoffs, the author will have to mine new depths of the fictional Shadyside to uncover new ghosts, murder mysteries, and tales of woe and gore. Might we suggest another investigation into the life and death of alleged witches Susannah and Martha Goode? Certainly they have some more relatives by now.

 I'm squeeeeeeeeing on the inside, babe. Truly!!! The title is such a classic Fear Street title. Party Games. I can already imagine the cover blurb: DEATH is the only game at this party. I demand that you leave your cover blurb ideas in the comments. It's our own Fear-y Halloween game. Like bobbing for apples with a lot less pay off. If you consider apples to be a pay off...
