|dextire||You're right, Ex Leper! That's so strange as the awesome illustrations are the only thing that anyone seems to remember about the books, since the stories are mostly just urban legends we've all heard a thousand times before. That sucks.|

|Ex Leper||They re-leased this book series and replaced the illustrations with the guy who drew for The Series of Unfortunate Events books. This is indeed and unfortunate event|

|MiKE8_3||I still have all these books! I never had any idea that they ever existed in audio form. This is great!|

Now that I hear the stories, I know I must have heard that tape at some point. Only I can't remember how or where.
I also had some sort of Alfred Hitchcock scary stories record I used to listen to all the time.
There were a few of the Scary Stories I didn't understand, including one that (if I remember correctly) had the monster or killer or whatever saying, "Me Tie Doughty Walker".

|crown pika||I love scary stuff. But unfortunately, I've never read those books. I want to though. my favorite book right now I think is either Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park-the lost world, or the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe.|

man i just saw this now, talk about behind the times
yeah i remember these books, particularly i remember a story about a kid getting hung up by his wrists and bleeding out, and one about these guys nailing a scarecrow to their roof, i'm pretty sure those were both from these books
and yeah the illustrations freaked me out in my youth. oh nostalgia

I know I'm late to the commenting party, but I had to thank you for putting this up. I loved (and feared, thanks to the illustrations) the books as a kid.
And now, the book on tape version. I never knew it existed. But it's surprisingly creepy, even as an adult!

This picture freaked me out big time as a kid

|postal||My brothers and I used to listen to these as a kid. In fact they scared the living crap out of my youngest brother. I just called him on the phone to play the big toe and he hung up on me screaming in terror. Sweet dreams Jason.......|

|Pip||Its pretty cool actually. Even though I'm a decade or so younger then you Rog, I still remember going to the library and checking out these things. In fact, I remember one night when I was sleeping over my aunt's house, my cousin actually told us his own version of the toe story.|

|Tanuki||Damn, I wish I had known this book existed. I only got Even More Short and Shivery when I was in girl scouts and got the book as a gift for participating in the cookie sales (God, I hate girl scout cookies). Did the guy who illustrated the cover of this book illustrate the Short and Shivery series too?|

|Mockery||Glad to see so many of you remember the books! They're still available you know, so don't hesitate to pick 'em up. And when the mailman delivers them, politely ask him, "Wheeeeere iiiiiis myyyyy toeeeeeee???"|

|GingerGrrl22||The illustrations in these books still creep me out! Especially the "Mexican dog" one...|

|LordMalrog||Dude, i totally grew up with this series! these books were/are awsome!|
|Oct 13th, 2008 08:38 AM|
|Mojomajik9||Yeah, I'll echo everyone else and say I love these books. Man, I remember getting them during the school's book fair. Good times. On another note, awesome Bill Hicks avatar, Seesawbooy.|

Wow, I too used to fall asleep listening to that tape when I was a kid.
I wish I still owned the original volumes. But at least I have the "Scary Story Treasury" that I can share with my nieces when they're old enough to stop eating books that you put in front of them.

|Jigby Huggletinks||Yeah, so, Room For One More... definitely Twilight Zone-inspired.|
|Oct 11th, 2008 11:32 PM|
Neoboman: Oh yeah, you're talking about "The Red Spot." That one was from the third book.
Fluffkomix: Now you're supposed to turn to the person next to you and shout: "YOU HAVE IT!!"
|Oct 11th, 2008 10:30 PM|
|fluffkomix||i remember this book! i used to read this all the time! but now i've lost it. so the question is: WHEREEEEEE ISSSSSS MYYYYYYY BOOOOOOOOOOOOK!!!!|
|Oct 11th, 2008 09:28 PM|
|Jer Ber||There's a version of The Viper on "God Bless Tiny Tim." I wonder what the origin of this story is...|

|cstafford92||I always loved these stories when I was younger.|
