This week on Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE!, we’re joined by Cody Meirick, director/producer of the upcoming documentary, Scary Stories.
 
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a series of children’s books published in the 1980’s and 90’s written by Alvin Schwartz and originally illustrated by Stephen Gammell. Many of us who love horror likely read the beloved and often controversial collection of folk stories and legends as children. The books will be honored in Scary Stories, the upcoming documentary directed/produced by Cody Meirick, which will feature interviews from Schwartz’s family members, folklorists, scholars, and notable horror authors such as R.L. Stine. And as an added bonus, Q.L. Pearce, multi-award-winning author of Spine Chillers and the iconic Scary Stories for Sleep-Overs, will be hosting this special YA edition of Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE! with us.

“Framed in the window, illuminated by the ghoulish cold glow of a blue Tiffany lamp, Tabitha Cooper stood, both hands on the glass. Her eyes, like ghosts inside her sockets, were trained on Jason, and that blind stare penetrated him, reaching inside him and taking hold of his marrow like cold skeletal hands. On a wall behind her, a painting of Jesus loomed, arms outstretched, head tipped tenderly to one side as the old woman’s fingers scribbled invisible things on the glass. Her mouth opened and closed, opened and closed, confessing silent things. Jason stared, locked in place by terror.”

Sleep, Savannah, Sleep, the latest novel from Alistair Cross, explores the darker side of life – and death – in a small California town where murder is afoot … and everyone has a motive. Slated for an early October release, Sleep, Savannah, Sleep will arrive just in time for Halloween.
