The Spirit of Glassboro & Other Tales of Terror by Andrew Kraus is a collection of short horror stories. Short, to the point and spine-tingling. The Spirit of Glassboro will send shivers through your body; Serial Am I will have you cringing in terror, looking at people you meet with new eyes. A Day in the Sun is a spine-chiller, and Hoard will make you shiver. Read these and other tales of the macabre, deranged demons, haunted houses, murderers and more. You may never look at anyone the same way again and you may forever wonder what caused the hairs to stand up on the back of your neck, what made your spine chill. A collection of stories with something for everyone, filled with dark humor and plenty of spooky goings-on.

The Spirit of Glassboro & Other Tales of Terror by Andrew Kraus is a great collection of short stories that will thrill and chill you at the same time. There is some humor, dark in nature, and the stories are easy to read. There are no long descriptions and drawn out stories – each one is to the point, straightaway. Every story will play on your fears and, in many, you simply won't see the ending coming. Not all of them are bloody gore, although there are a couple that are; most are psychological and some will tug at your heartstrings, like A Day in the Sun. And just as enjoyable as all these stories is the carefully written Foreword. A great collection of stories, ideal for killing a few minutes at a time but don’t read them when you are alone at night!
