From audible.com:

Creepy fun for ages 9-12!

Camp nights or camp frights?!

Every sleepaway camp promises memories that last a lifetime. But the memories from Camp Red Moon might give you nightmares!

• The campfire appears to dim when the moon turns blood red and strange creatures prowl the forest.

• Do you find a total lookalike at camp? Is it coincidence or is he a shapeshifter trying to take over your life?

• Why don't your competitors at the robotics competition seem exactly…human?

• And why do campers do anything to avoid Cabin 6?

The master of the scary story for young people, R. L. Stine, returns with his story The Werewolf in the Woods and has handpicked a staff of horror camp counselors - Dan Poblocki, Ellen Oh, and Justin Reynolds - to help him tell the creepy campfire stories that swirl around Camp Red Moon.

No matter how bright the campfire, get ready for some CHILLS!

Book Cover
A DOZEN MASTERPIECES OF MYSTERY, MURDER, AND UNEARTHLY DETECTION!

Every month, the Black Widowers convene for sumptuous food, fine wine, and a cosmically baffling mystery.  Attended by Henry, the all-knowing waiter, these gentle rogues ponder such imponderables as:

• the one-syllable middle name that represents what every schoolboy knows, yet doesn't... • a murder by solar eclipse very far out in space... • a Soviet spy's dying message utilizing a Scabble set and a newspaper sports page... • a satanic cult leader's Martian connection... • a computer criminal's strange equation of Christmas and Halloween... • an ancient symbol that provides the key to a woman's mysterious disappearance...

Dip into these wonderfully wizardly concoctions of surprising murder and Asmovian logic that have delighted readers of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine.

CONAN AT HIS GREATEST...
EPIC FANTASY AT ITS BEST


"Conan is the superman - or super-barbarian, rather - into whom the prolific Robert Erwin Howard was best able to inject his furious dreams of danger and power and unending adventure, of combative and sexual prowess, of hot impulses instantly followed, yet a fighting man's code never broken.  Conan is a true hero of Valhalla, battling and suffering great wounds by day, carousing and wenching by night, and plunging into fresh adventures tomorrow.  While the Hyborian Age through which Conan cuts his bloody swath is the most fully realized of Howard's fantasy worlds; mapped, geographically and economically plausible, provided with a stirring history and prehistory covering many cultures, and peopled by kings and beggars, peasants and poets, hags and queens and lusty girls, as well as warriors and warlocks."  - FRITZ LEIBER

HERE ARE SEVEN OF THE MOST EXCITING
CONAN STORIES, INCLUDING THREE
NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED ANYWHERE


Meet Conan, the gigantic adventurer from Cimmeria - and discover one of the greatest thrills in modern fiction!  With important background material, and a new, more detailed introduction by :. Sprague de Camp.

CONAN
OF CIMMERIA

Conan in his
most savage adventures!


"When he twisted his bullneck to look upward, the blood froze in Conan's veins.  The mist that had obscured the top of the pylon was gone.  The rising half moon shone on and through an amorphous thing, which squatted obsenely on the summit of the column.  It was like a huge lump of quivering semi-translucent jelly - and it lived.  Throbbing, bloated life pulsed within it.  The moonlight glistened wetly upon is as it beat like a huge living heart.  As Conan watched in horror, the thing sent a trickle of jelly down the shaft toward his constrained body...."

Eight harrowing, demonic adventures in the life of Conan including:
QUEEN OF THE BLACK COAST and THE FROST GIANT'S DAUGHTER.

The World's greatest
fantasy hero -
the ultimate warrior - Conan!


"Towering above the larger-than-life characters - almost above the fabulous Hyborian world itself - is the figure of... Conan!

"Great, gusty, swaggering, brawling, terrible, wonderful Conan!

"Thief, pirate, mercenary, warrior, general, king - his sandaled feet are unerringly set upon the road of empire.  You have never met his like before - nor, I think, shall you ever again."
- ROY G. KRENKEL


Including THE SLITHERING SHADOW and THE DRUMS OF TOMBALKU - plus one of the greatest of all his adventures, THE PEOPLE OF THE BLACK CIRCLE!

CONAN
THE BUCCANEER


"Conan stood silently at the quarterdeck rail as the Westrel veered into strange waters.  With only he pole star to guide him, what might he encounter in the darkly glittering immensity?  What fabulous isles and unknown peoples?  Only his prey, the evil Zarono, knew better whiter he was bound!

"The mighty barbarian laughed gustily.  Crom!  A man could die but once.  Enough to combat the terror when one met it, with steel in the hand and battle madness in the heart.  He, Conan, would take his chances on the Nameless Isle."

Thrill with the most colossal hero of epic fantasy as he battles the demonic powers of Thoth-Amon in a mighty adventure in search of fabulous treasure and a beautiful princess!

THE ROAD OF THE EAGLES
A WITCH SHALL BE BORN


"Conan the hero of all Howard's heroes, is the armored swashbuckler, indestructible and irresistible, that we've all wanted to be at one time or another; the women, in appearance, manner, and costume (or lack of it)  are the inmates in the sort of harem that harems ought to be but aren't; the villains are villainous as only perfect villains can be; the sorcerers are sorcerers in spades; and the apparitions they conjure up, or appear under their own power, are (thank God!) out of this world."

CONAN
THE WANDERER


Conan, nearly invincible and the mightiest of mankind's heroes, finally meats his match!

"No wor was spoken.  No word was necessary....  Kosatral came upon him in an irresistible surge.  There was a fleeting concussion, a fierce writhing and intertwining of limbs and bodies, and then Conan sprang clear.  In that instant of contact he had experienced the ultimate madness of blasphemed nature; no human flesh had bruised his, but metal animated and sentient; it was a body of living metal which opposed his...."

This the most fabulous figure of epic sword-and-sorcery fiction meets diabolical dangers in the four superb Conan adventures included in this volume.
