    "Porcelain Elephants" by Ron Ripley: One of Mr. Ripley's best in a long line of great tales, "Porcelain Elephants" is by turns heartwarming, terrifying, and heartwrenching. For me, the human Evil proved far worse than the admittedly supernatural elements. I found this story very satisfying. "The Cursed Necklace" by Anna Sinjin: Now that is scary. Kudos for the implacability of this particular horror, and for the way that the author has interwoven simple, common, human emotions to create a pathwa "Porcelain Elephants" by Ron Ripley: One of Mr. Ripley's best in a long line of great tales, "Porcelain Elephants" is by turns heartwarming, terrifying, and heartwrenching.

"Do You Hear What I Hear?" by Sara Clancy: I do enjoy my Christmas Horror...but this is TOO SCARY!! DO NOT read at night alone! I read it on a sunny, hot, front porch at noon AND I'M TERRIFIED!!!

    Scare Street strikes again - this time the bait is trinkets and jewelry. Two hired thugs try to kill a homeless man who is living in a metal shed at a junkyard only to learn the hard way that he has some powerful protectors. A man decides to present his girlfriend with a necklace he suspects is stolen and she pays the ultimate price. A woman finds a mysterious present under her Christmas tree and decides to open it before Christmas, to her misfortune. There is much more to these three tales, of Scare Street strikes again - this time the bait is trinkets and jewelry.

A woman finds a mysterious present under her Christmas tree and decides to open it before Christmas, to her misfortune. There is much more to these three tales, of course, but I don't want to ruin it for others. You'll just have to buy the book and see for yourself. I highly recommend that you do so.

    So good! This is the 26 short horror story book and it doesn’t seem like Ron Ripley is slowing down at all. The third story was my favorite and it proves that curiosity kills more than just the cat. The other two stores were awesome as well but the third is a real zinger. I highly recommend this book As I do all Ron Ripley books. If you love aura then of course you’ll love this book.

    Porcelain Elephants was my favorite. The other two stories were written well, but not as intriguing as the first one. The necklace was ok. Do you hear what I hear drove me wildly insane because as I was reading it, I could imagine being in the story and hearing weird sounds.... Later on that night, I dreamed that I was the character in the story hearing weird stuff and no one else was there to hear me, let alone see me.

    It is hard to think that the Scare Street team can continually outdo themselves with their stories, but they never disappoint! I could not put this book down! Of the three stories featured in this book, each one had just the right level of intrigue, intensity, and scare factor! Stories are: Porcelain Elephants The Cursed Necklace Do You Hear What I Hear? My favorite was the Porcelain Elephants out of the three. Perfectly done, and written in a way where its believable!

    Nice One This batch was pretty good. I especially liked the last one, it's a real cliff hanger, on a warm cozy picturesque holiday. Nice One This batch was pretty good. I especially liked the last one, it's a real cliff hanger, on a warm cozy picturesque holiday.
