I know you guys OBVIOUSLY only read Fear Street novels with the occasional dash of Goosebumps and Point Horror (let me believe this, okay?), but this new thriller anthology looks pretty interesting.
This volume consists of stories that bring together characters from popular authors' books. As you can see, Stine contributed to this one which is the only reason I'm mentioning this here. So which character of his is used?
Slappy, the world's most terrifyingly deranged dummy!!! Slappy is paired up with Aloysius Pendergast from the Preston/Child Pendergast series. Let's all take a moment to absorb how very awesome this is. Truly. I can't even begin to imagine what this particular story (titled "Gaslighted") could possibly entail. The possibilities are MIND BLOWING, my friends. I feel like a chunky child in a candy shop!
I'm just really into the idea of a character in a Goosebumps books making a leap into ADULT fiction. Especially Slappy who is such a (wooden) bastard! You know he's going to be such a smart ass throughout the entire story (at least I PRAY he is). *sigh* Mi amor.
