Bruce Coville has published over 100 books for children and young adults, including the international bestseller MY TEACHER IS AN ALIEN, the wildly popular UNICORN CHRONICLES series, and the much-loved JEREMY THATCHER, DRAGON HATCHER. His works have appeared in a dozen languages, and won children's choice awards in as many states, including twice in California. He has been, at various times, a teacher, a toymaker, a magazine editor, a gravedigger, and a cookware salesman. He is also the founder of FULL CAST AUDIO, an audiobook publishing company devoted to producing full cast, unabridged recordings of material for family listening. Mr. Coville lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife Katherine Coville, who is also a children's book writer..

Definitely lives up to its name - these short stories are truly creepy! And a great, albeit brief, introduction to Coville's work, clearly, since I had not read any before and now plan to seek out plenty more (although I gather he doesn't always skew toward the scary).
I also want to add, just because, that this was my gateway drug to Smashwords. I had not heard of this site before an acquaintance - a Coville fan - mentioned him having stuff here. I think he was holding a sale perhaps? This was about 6 months ago now, and I only wish I hadn't sat on this book for so long after purchasing it at the time!
But in any case, I'm so glad I found Coville in this way. Thank you for the nightmares!
