Christopher Pike’s ‘The Midnight Club’ – Why It’s Such a Unique Story of Young Death [Buried in a Book]

Christopher Pike knows his way around death, but how the author approaches the act of mortality in The Midnight Club is unique, even for him.

Stephen King’s “The Raft” and the Death of Summer

Few short stories in horror fiction are as terrifying as The Raft. The 9th entry in Stephen King’s second collection, Skeleton Crew, is a simple but bone chilling tale about a floating wooden raft in the middle of a deserted lake and the horrors that befall a group of college friends who swim out to […]

‘Ghosts of Fear Street’ – The Spinoff Series That Mixed ‘Goosebumps’ and ‘Fear Street’ [Buried in a Book]

With the success of both Fear Street and Goosebumps in the early ‘90s, it only made sense to combine them into one series. And R. L. Stine’s Ghosts of Fear Street is essentially that.

Mary Downing Hahn’s ‘Wait Till Helen Comes’ Is a Benchmark in Children’s Ghost Stories [Buried in a Book]

The namesake of Wait Till Helen Comes is no friendly ghost. She may act protective, yet Helen is the furthest thing from a guardian angel. The fact is, the deceptive spirit of Mary Downing Hahn’s 1986 book habitually sets her sights on children, preys on their insecurities and twists the truth to her advantage. Indeed, […]
