Short horror reads: A list of scary stories 100 pages or less
Several years ago, I read that haunted houses are popular in Japan during the summer. One of the reasons being that the shiver which fear can send down your spine is a welcome relief from the extreme heat of summer. The idea was so novel to my way of thinking that it stuck with me. After all, in America, October is the time for haunted houses.
So, in honor of the rising temperatures, here are some scary/creepy/unsettling/terrifying stories that can be read in one day to help keep you cool. Many of these stories are found in larger collections.
