Read full description of the books:
This volume makes up for the lackluster delivery of the previous one, Still More, and has a number of memorably spooky tales. It still doesn't live up to Pearce's first outing as the series' author, but it's still a lot of fun.
The Tune of Terror has a classic campfire tale vibe, centered on a boy who plays with a flute made out of the arm bone of an executed horse thief, who returns from the grave to reclaim it. Each time he plays the flute, it draws the dead man to the sound. Pretty unnerving, and would feel right at home in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which had a lot of similar, if much shorter stories.
Feast of the Hungry Ghosts is a decent one about a couple of Chinese-American kids who scoff at the ghostly legends of their ancestors...and quickly regret it.
Camp Colby was a pretty creepy one about dead miners who will do anything to feel alive again. The illustration is creepy as hell, too -- one of Dwight Beens best drawings in the series.
The Pact isn't too terribly scary, but it is kind of touching.
Danger Island is one of those stories that isn't necessarily good, but burns itself into your memory anyway. I mentioned it in my review of the first volume: three friends visit the island of a scientist who was developing giant plants, but his carnivorous specimens got way out of hand. The kids try to flee the island and are gruesomely devoured one by one.
While still not the best entry in the series, it's a definite must-have. Even if the stories didn't necessarily keep me awake at night, I still remember them fondly.
