As friends on Goodreads know, I've been organizing events at local cafes for several years, events ranging from puppet shows to music, from academic lectures to readings. I picked this book up at a recent night devoted to horror fiction, Martin Mundt, my favorite horror writer, having included it on the literature table at a discounted price.
The gimmick to this collection is that it has a story, usually of one to three pages, for each night of the year. Lacking that kind of patience, I went thr

Although the stories are not very scary a lot of times, they are extremely creative. Each story only gets 2 or 3 pages tops, so the authors have to try to tell a story in that amount of space (or less). It is a collective of many different authors.

This is the least scary book that I have ever read. Many of the stories are less than a page long, which is not long enough to build up any type of suspense. Some of the stories do not even make sense. I was very disappointed in this book.

This book took me about ten years to get through. I always pick it up thinking I'll finish it, or at least bite off a big chunk, but it just doesn't happen. Out of the 365 2-page stories in this book, I marked about 15 that I would go back and read again. Really a dreadful waste of time.

Given to my be my sister to read.
You have to be prepared for some strange and creepy stories. They are short! there is a story for each day of the year. If you like horror, this is a read for you.

One of the best collections of short horror stories, with the highlight being "For Your Immediate Attention". Scary as hell.

I think that this book was extremely great and also extremely long. It was 726 pages and the stories were short. I would recommend this book to somebody that likes ling stories and has a lot of time an their hands.

I liked the book not only because it was long but, also because some of the stories were interesting and most had a plot twist. I think that the plot twists were great because you would never see some of the twists coming.

A horror story for every day of the week! It’s like Christmas every day—or Halloween!

365 Scary Stories does something most writers fear more than anything. It makes them tell a complete story in less than three pages. That’s right; none of these stories will take you more than a few minutes to read. And they are all mostly well done. Just like any other collection of short stories, there is never really one that can be called a favorite, but some of the better ones are super-short (just a few se
Going into the book I really wasn't expecting a whole lot due to the length of the stories but some of them were really very good. The two that stand out in particular are the Vampire on Christmas one (I loved the funny little irony twist at the end) and one very creepy one that was really disturbing about a ransomed child and no one at home. I think it was called Phone Tag but i'm not sure.

This is kind of a cool book. You could literally read one tiny little short story a day for a year. Mostly, they're only a page or so long. Think about that! That's a real talent: being able to tell a complete story in under 500 words. It's remarkable. Some, I must admit, I didn't enjoy nearly as well as others, but I'd say that about 90% or more were pretty darn enjoyable.

I would only read 1-3 of these stories in a sitting (usually right before bed, much to my wife's incredulity) so it took me quite a long time to get through the whole thing, but I enjoyed it. The stories are short enough that you don't need a lot of time to fit one or two in, and I really like this type of story, so definitely a winner for me.

One of the books from my sister Hayley's shelf that she recommended to me when I asked for books to read while visiting. Most of the stories aren't too scary, though they are definitely really bizarre and very creative. I have had some really interesting dreams the past few nights and these stories are definitely contributing to them.

A lot of the stories in here are kind of avant-garde/experimental horror, but nevertheless, most of them are REALLY good and creepy. My favorite is the Bone Garden. I'm doing the whole one story a day thing, and it's really entertaining :)
A fun collection of quick, bite-sized stories perfect for bedtime or a short break from other work. Of course, not all of the stories are fantastic, but in a collection of 365 tales, there are more than enough to keep the reader satisfied.

Exceptional anthology featuring extremely brief short stories. The format works well and there's an extensive variety of clever ideas & concepts.

It was alright. There were some really good stories, some really stupid stories, but the majority were just ok.
