Be Afraid!: Tales of Horror
Edo Van Belkom
Tundra Books, 2000 - Juvenile Fiction - 178 pages
What scares you? Is it vampires and werewolves, or the terror that rises from the darkness of everyday life?
Be Afraid! gathers fifteen stories, twelve of them original, by award-winning authors from both the horror and young adult fields in an anthology in which the shivers are as familiar as the touch of a cold hand on the back of your neck.
Be afraid of an innocent-looking doll. Be afraid for the changes that occur to a young boy as he matures into adulthood. Be afraid for a girl who is teased by her schoolmates for having a scar that has ruined her otherwise pretty face. The stories take everyday situations and recast them in a scary and unforgettable light.
Edited by Edo van Belkom, Be Afraid! features tales by international award-winning and bestselling authors, including Robert J. Sawyer, Monica Hughes, Tim Wynne-Jones, Ed Greenwood, Nancy Kilpatrick, Joe R. Lansdale, Ed Gorman, Steve Rasnic Tem, and Richard Laymon as well as a host of exciting new writers.
