Publisher's Summary

Six Scary Stories, selected by Stephen King.
Winning stories from The Bazaar of Bad Dreams Hodder-Guardian competition. The number one best-selling writer Stephen King presents six gripping and chilling stories in this captivating anthology: 'Wild Swimming' by Elodie Harper. 'Eau-de-Eric' by Manuela Saragosa. 'The Spots' by Paul Bassett Davies. 'The Unpicking' by Michael Button. 'La Mort de L'amant' by Stuart Johnstone. 'The Bear Trap' by Neil Hudson.
Stephen King discovered these stories when he judged a competition run by Hodder & Stoughton and the Guardian to celebrate publication of his own collection, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. He was so impressed with the entries that he recommended they were published together in one collection.
Listeners beware: the stories will make you think twice before cuddling up to your old soft toy, dipping your toe into the water or counting the spots on a leopard....

Six spine-chilling short stories

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Six stories of around 20 minutes in duration each to give you something to do on the bus or train.

What did you like best about this story?

All the stories are good. My personal favourite isn't the actual winner but they're all worth listening to.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

There were several performances as the stories are both narrated but the characters are performed by several people. None of them gave a bad performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. They are bite-sized stories and they can be listened to in one sitting but are probably better appreciated one at a time.

Great set of stories

It’s like a really good collection of creepy pastas with great performances. Well worth the current asking price (£2.59 as I write this), though too short to use a credit for. Definitely worth a listen, especially if you enjoy short horror stories.

Meh, won't recommend

I was hoping for a better read but of the 6 stories only 2 left me interested and keen to keep reading. I skipped through most of the others as they were tedious, even being as short as they were. Overall a disappointment.
