Short & Shivery invites you to enter a world of restless spirits, impish goblins, and frightening creaturesa world of hair-raising tales guaranteed to send Halloween-style shivers running down your spine. Drawn from the ghostlore of a variety of cultures and countries, these 30 tales have been carefully reconstructed with all their original shuddery details and spine-chilling endings. Come inside and meet a dancing Japanese skeleton who haunts an old friend ... a Russian vampire who prowls the moonlit streets of a small village ... a boy who meddles with magic in colonial America ... and a Norwegian woman who accidentally stumbles into the midnight mass of the dead. Most of these stories have been preserved by storytellers for centuries, passed on by moonlight or firelight to generations of young people around the world. As you listen to these chilling tales, just remember that the scratching at your window or the floorboard creaking in the hallway is only your imagination ... or is it
