Are you an avid fan of scary stories? Rather than frightening you, the sordid tales of gruesome deaths and ghastly ghosts fascinate and stimulate you-so you are always on a quest for terror-filled tales. Terror-filled stories are read to test one's nerves, and obviously to scare. Moreover, it's the mystery mingled with the horror that really beckons people to pick up a scary story. They can't live without satisfying their curiosity. After all, the tales with a hidden killer or a ghost's possession are weaved with an underlying depth of mystery. Scary stories can set your heart racing and scare the wits out of you. You read them for your entertainment and because you are fascinated by the terror emphasized in them. But what exactly are they? Horror stories are those tales that captivate readers via either bloodshed or supernatural beings, like ghosts or demons. Paranormal beings terrify us because they have powers that are beyond our comprehension. On the other hand, scary stories also illustrate the dark side of humans and what they are capable of doing if evil rests in their hearts. A person only gets frightened of what they actually fear, but fear is a rather broad term. Everyone is afraid of one thing or the other. The mere mention of ghosts might make you tremble, but your friends might enjoy ghost stories, and they can abide with gruesome stories of ruthless killings and lot of blood. Despite the aftereffects of these stories-nightmares, trouble going to the bathroom alone-people still can't seem to get enough of them. Readers are spurred on to continue reading by nerve-wrecking questions like why, who, how, and what will save the victims. This book contains some interestingly macabre and hair-raising short stories that will entice you and your terror-loving spirit. Horror and mystery go hand in hand to bring you short stories that will provide you with tales worth remembering. These six short stories are an interesting read, if you're looking for something scary riddled with mystery to read. What are you waiting for? Buy now
