Author: Various, retold by Robert D. San Souci

In the mood for a little something creepy? Then A Terrifying Taste of Short & Shivery is for you. This book features 30 different horror stories. It's full of monstrous Ogres from Japan, creepy creatures from Africa, ancient legends from England and ghosts from the world over. You'll find something to put a chill in your spine no matter how tough you think you are.

The Bottom Line

Each tale of terror is a quick read - usually between two and seven pages long. They're perfect for a bus trip to school, a camping trip with your friends or a quick read with lunch. If you're feeling mean you can sneak up to your little brothers bedroom door and whisper horror stories to him when he's trying to go to sleep. There are even pictures to go with the stories, which help bring the creatures to life.

You sound like you're being discriminative against others and their views. I think you need to lighten up and stop being such an extremist about your religion. One has to be right, or they're all wrong.

Those who go to hell,  are those who don't believe in Jesus Christ & those who working their on way to the wrong god.  If I were you, I will believe in Jesus.  But it is your choice.
