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.
