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...

I was really excited when I saw he was revisiting Fear Street. I can't say I'll rush out and buy the new book, but I might see if I can find a copy at a library or something. As for a cover blurb: "It's all fun and games-until someone dies."

My contribution for the cover blurb: "Prepare to party... with DEATH."

This is just flat out retarded. I've been expecting a new recap and what do I see? News I've already heard of and a shitty game for drooling five years old to spurt out their "creativity." I'm disappointed in this blogger. She has a lot of viewers and yet she leaves just a few words just now and then dies off. You just lost one of your viewers.

I saw this interview with Stine on Vulture and thought of you.

I love: "One girl is found all folded up and there's a note that says, "Twister, anyone?" They're trapped on an island, and there's a killer there who wants to kill everyone." This guy is A GENIUS.

But really, he seems like a nice dude, and can you believe he's fucking 70? Seventy years old.

What happened with A Midsummer Night's Scream, by the by?

When I get this book it'll be like My Birthday and Christmas rolled into one.

I wish more 80's/90's series' could be revived.

As for my tagline - Party till you drop ... dead

"The most dangerous games..."

"They were playing... with DEATH." (Inspired by HelenB.)

"When games turn deadly..."

I didn't hear about this news until I read this post. :)

Suki Thomas must have teenage kids by now, right?!

I had to chuckle when I read your 'Karen Brewer' comment during your blog post about 'The Sleepwalker'. Then I felt a huge swell of pity for you, since, if you know who Karen Brewer is, you must have read at least a little bit of that book series.

Any chance you'll cover the Fear Street Saga trilogy? Or have enough people pelted you with that request already?

Where do you get the Fear Street books from? I've been searching public libraries, but can't find anything :(
