Wow! Who should be afraid?
Remember the green fingers, the black sheet, the red hand, the coffin on wheels? How sweet it was to be afraid, when in the camp at night, in a tent on a hike or visiting friends under the cover of darkness, we told each other these sinister stories! They were also published in Pioneer magazine.
Have you come across the psychedelic newspaper "Speed Info", in which stories about how some photographer there photographed a vampire in the crown of a tree, and then fought him off with a camera, were passed off as real stories?
Now there are no such treasures of the press for teenagers, but what a good book from a distance!
In this unusual collection, those who like to tickle their nerves will find the most chilling tales of the peoples of the world, there are also Russian ones (including the very same "Vasilisa the Beautiful", for which Bilibin drew extremely creepy illustrations). And all the other horror stories were new to me personally, I would definitely have liked this as a child.
