When the going gets tough, we close our eyes tight… and peek. Why our love affair with horror? Each of us has different tolerance. Maybe we just want a tiny adrenaline rush, or maybe we are gore junkies (not me). Something about horror in some degree releases our stress. I have a niece who can’t take any horror. But a slightly scary fairy is okay. Anymore and her sweet spirit is bruised. Others I have met are downright frightening. Still, there we are, craving our own variety. Well, here are some of the horror stories I have read. Some classic, some humorous. But you aren’t going to find the really grotesque here. I’m a little like my niece. Sorry. Still, there are some really taut ones available that I love. Enjoy.
