Tales of Terror

(1999) Christopher Pike, Hodder, 4.99, pbk, 202pp, ISBN 0-340-61916-3

A book for 'young adults', this is more Tales of the Unexpected than Terror. Pike has been extremely successful at carving a niche for himself, and quite rightly so. Though the plots of these six stories leave something to be desired for the more sophisticated reader, they should go well for the intended audience. The usual teen preoccupations are prevalent; sex and death. Just what you were reading when you were growing up!
