Spectacular Short-Short Scary Story  October 1, 2011 - November 1, 2011

Reading and Deliberating


I'm looking for the best, the most epic of all short short stories. This is quite the challenge and since its October (my favorite month out of all the year) I want to be scared out of my mind, give me suspense, give me mystery, give me chills, make me turn on every light in my house! Submissions must be 1,500 words or less. Please only one entry per person.


You get recognition, a round of applause, and gratification in knowing you have the ability to scare someone to the point where they walk around twitching and second guessing every shadow!!!

Checks underneath the bed Checks underneath the bed
