Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

by

Stephen Gammell is one of my favorite illustrators. His trade is children’s books and in 1981, he worked on bringing to life a collection of horror stories by Alvin Schwartz. These stories are quite disliked by the American Library Association because of the incessant religious violence and occult horror. I, on the other hand, say more please!

Stephen Gammell on his early inklings to draw:
“I was four at the time thinking that I really didn’t want to go to school next year…I just want to do THIS,” said Gammell. “Just scare other children so bad it gives them nightmares for the rest of their lives.”

Cue Vincent Price laugh.
