Some of today's top bestselling authors, from Laurie Faria Stolarz to Melissa de la Cruz to Christopher Pike, come together in this bone-chilling, spine-curling collection of dark and dangerous short stories. In Peter Abrahams' story, Becky wishes she had never gotten sick and stayed home. Once she turned on her TV, a certain show becomes all too real. Twins Jane and Jill have been the best of sisters, or at least that is what Jill thought. Turns out her sister isn't so happy with the wonderful life Jill has right now and can't wait to see her drop dead, literally. Soon enough, Jane comes up with the perfect plan to make sure that only one sister is able to lead the perfect life. Christopher Pike takes us on a journey of what being a twin could possibly be like. Robin Wasserman creates Parker Kent, a girl who others don't really like. She finally thought she had made a friend, a best friend, but before she knows it the friend turns on her. It's okay, though, since that friend never liked her in the first place, right? Fifteen more chilling stories complete this anthology of eighteen authors with their very own original works. Accompanied by a frightening cover and an outrageous title, 666: THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST will make it very hard for you to sleep tonight, and other nights that follow.

Pretty Good Book

This book was pretty good. Directed mostly towards young adults; it's divided into 3 sections of 6 stories each: Evil, Darkness and Beasts. The EVIL section deals with mostly the general supernatural-- ghosts, unexplained experiences..etc. The DARKNESS section deals with mostly psychological aspects of horror and suspense. And the BEASTS section is pretty self explainatory- Vampires, Werewolves..etc. The best stories in the book in my opinion were "Imagining Things" in the Darkness section where a young boy 'imagines' he see dark shadowy creatures that seem to 'haunt' or follow him. Or is it really all in his imagination after all? The pyschological suspense and eerie ending really made this one stand out for me. The next best story is "Grandma Kelly" in the Beast section. A girl having a bad day is about to realize how much worse it can get when she runs into a seemingly harmless old woman on the way home from school. This story combines a bit of dark humor with a clever ending. Generally, I found that the rest of the stories were either confusing(Incident Report and Empire of Dirt, which were filled with, in my opinion too much technical jargon) or either were somewhat depressing or just plain odd. Only one story really had any gore (Saving Face)It was an overall good book, and while many of the stories weren't really SCARY in the typical sense; the book was very entertaining and I could hardly put it down. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a variety of supernatural and horror short stories.
