I got the modern (90s) edition of this book through one of those Scholastic bookfair deals in grade school. Of all my old bookfair picks, this one was my favorite for years. I can't even guess how many times I re-read it throughout my young life. It terrified and fascinated me. The simple ink drawings accompanying many of the short chapters added to the atmosphere.

Reading it now as an adult, most of it is pretty tame, and a good handful of the stories that are supposedly based on real events are either exaggerated or were debunked decades ago, but it was like visiting old friends I hadn't seen in years. It's as close as I can get to peering back at my ten-year-old self lying on the floor of my bedroom after school in Lakewood, CO, book in hand...

The one that gave me the most chills as a kid was "The Whistle". Still gives a tingle!
