I’m pretty conservative and a lot of times my editors are telling me to make it scarier, to really hype it up. I’m kind of careful. I don’t really want to scare kids. But one time in a Fear Street book, I think it was called The Best Friend, the good girl is taken off as a murderer at the end.

Stine found a typewriter when he was nine years old and began writing. His first works were joke books and short stories. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1965 from the Ohio State University, where he had edited the school’s humor magazine for three of the four years he attended.
Scholastic claimed that Stine was employing ghostwriters for many Goosebumps books. … Scholastic alleged that Stine wrote the first sixteen books in the series independently, after which he began to employ freelancers.
In the end, Gary gets his body back by stinging the fake Gary, which sends Dirk back to his body. The two become friends and Gary realizes his life as a human being wasn’t so bad after all. And that’s a good thing, because for the first act of the book, Gary’s outlook on life is concerning.
That idea is at the heart of 1666, which reveals that the legend of Sarah Fier as the witch who forever cursed Shadyside is a false tale.
No, ‘Fear Street Part Three: 1666’ is not based on a true story. The trilogy is inspired by celebrated children’s author R. L. Stine’s ‘Fear Street’ book series. Over the course of his lengthy career, Stine has published over 50 books in the original ‘Fear Street’ series.
The Shadyside curse originated back in the 17th century, during the Salem Witch Trials. … The curse followed the Fiers even after they moved to Shadyside, where the titular Fear Street was named after them (they eventually changed their name from Fier to Fear).
R.L. Stine’s favorite Goosebumps book is one that you’d never guess. When people ask him which was his favorite, he usually says his favorite book was The Haunted Mask or Night of the Living Dummy. However, he said his real favorite book is “One that no one ever mentions called, Brain Juice.
Spoken like the accomplished author that he is, without a shred of sarcasm, R.L. Stine, King of goosebumps, really believes that the key to being able to write a book is to write every day.
Jack Black as R. L. Stine, the creator of the Goosebumps franchise, attempting to keep his identity secret. Black also provides the voices of Slappy the Dummy from the Night of the Living Dummy series and Brent Green from My Best Friend is Invisible.
Disney plans to announce the new attraction today. The Goosebumps HorrorLand Fright Show and FunHouse will be on Disney-MGM’s New York Street. The show will take place on a stage designed to look like a warehouse loading dock and will feature characters from the books by Goosebumps creator and author R.L. Stine.
While Goosebumps may feature a more original horror story, Fear Street does a much better job at paying homage to several of the iconic slasher films that came before it. The most obvious is Wes Craven’s Scream, namely due to the likeness between Ghostface and Skull Mask.
