BeschreibungThe development of the horror genre in childrens literature has been a startling phenomenon one that has provoked strong, but mixed, reactions. Frightening Fiction provides a lucid and lively guide to that genre, ranging from analyses of such popular series as Point Horror, Goosebumps, the X Files and the Buffy Stories, to the work of individual authors such as Robert Westall, David Almond, Philip Gross and Lesley Howarth.

Pressestimmen"Finally readers have a book that takes a serious and critical look at the horror genre for children....For those who often have wondered how to explain the appeal of horror to parents of teens, or even how to explain it to themselves, this book is a must-read. That said, this book most likely will find its audience in college libraries and large public libraries." VOYA
