More About the Author

Why is Tim Jacobus R.L. Stine's favorite illustrator? Maybe because they've done so many scary books together. Tim did the cover paintings for more than 80 Goosebumps books, as well as the six amazing Amazon books. Recently, the two of them got together and asked the questions they've always wanted to ask each other...

~~~~

TIM (the illustrator) asks R.L. STINE (the author):

TIM: When I illustrate, I can "see" the image in my head before I start to draw. Do you "hear" a story when you write?

R.L.: I hear kids when I write. I try to hear the voice of the boy or girl who is telling the story. I visit schools a lot and talk with kids so I can keep up with what they are saying these days and what real kids sound like. Then I try to hear their voices tell the story as I write it.

~

TIM: You've written so many books I can't do the math, but I bet you've used millions of words. What's you favorite word?

R.L.: Someone once got in an elevator with a very witty author named Noel Coward and said, "Say something funny." And Coward said, "Kangaroo." Kangaroo has been a favorite word of mine ever since I heard that story. But as a horror writer, I guess my favorite word is SCREAM!

~

TIM: Where is the strangest place you have come up with an idea for a story?

R.L.: An empty movie theater. My wife and I went to see a scary movie in a big, old movie house-- and we were the only ones in the theater. It was kind of creepy. Then about halfway through the movie, I turned around and saw that the back row was filled with people sitting straight and still. Suddenly, I thought-- They are zombies! I'm trapped in a dark zombie theater! And that's where the idea for the book Zombie Town came from.

~

TIM: If you couldn't write-- and you possessed all skills-- what would you like to do for a living?

R.L.: I drew comic strips from the time I was in 4th grade, and I always dreamed of being a cartoonist. You can imagine my shock when the other kids told me how bad my art was. They were right. I stunk! I got over my extreme disappointment by starting to write. But if I had the skill, I would love to do what you do, Tim.

**********

R.L. STINE (the author)asks TIM (the illustrator):

R.L.: If you couldn't be an artist what would you like to be?

TIM: I would like to be a "Snowmaker" at one of the big ski resorts, out west, like Mammoth Mountain in California. You work at night when everyone goes home. Set up the snow guns, cover the slopes, and groom them with the Sno-Cat track machine. It's kinda like a snow tank! Then, you get to ski for free! I love that snow!

~

R.L.: When we were kids, my brother and I used to go to a horror movie every Saturday. We loved them all. The covers on our six Amazon books look like movie posters to me. Were you also influenced by horror movies? If so, which ones?

TIM: I was a complete "chicken" as a kid. I couldn't sit through any horror movie. The first scary movie I saw was on TV. It isn't really a horror movie. It was the Hunchback of Notre Dame-- the black-and-white version with Charles Laughton. That movie freaked me out! The mutant, Quasimodo, was something that REALLY could exist. Black-and-white movies, black-and-white photos--they all seem more "real" than full color to me.

~

R.L.: You have painted so many great covers. I think your scariest Goosebumps cover was for The Barking Ghost. And the black cat on The 13th Warning is really creepy. Do you have a favorite cover? Is it a scary one or a funny one?

TIM: It's hard to pick a favorite. But you gotta love the blue bathroom blobs in Monster Blood IV. That one is a little creepy and WAY funny. For just outright scary, I love the ticket taker in Zombie Town!

~

R.L.: What was the weirdest thing someone ever asked you to draw?

TIM: Oh, I have drawn a lot of weird stuff. One time, I had to paint a pimple! You know... acne! It was a medical illustration. Gross. When I first started illustrating, I painted pictures of food. My food illustrations were used in the Sunday newspaper for the local supermarket. I painted every food you can imagine. I can draw a pretty mean potato!

I have been a R.L. Stine fan since '95 and I have to say that this was his best book ever. I love the new format he uses to introduce each character and how it kept me guessing the whole time. I would definetly recommend Fear Hall to anyone who is looking for a suspenseful, murder mystery with plenty of twists.

This is R.L. Stine's greatest work. I have read the other reviews from people, and most said they didn't like the ending. I'm not a sick and twisted person, but I loved the ending. It was perfect. How else was it supposed to end? There was no other way. I remember when I read it the first time. After I finished it, I stared at the last page for an hour. I didn't like the ending at first, but after thinking about it, I got it. Fear Hall is exciting, scary, and excellent. Pick it up today.

After reading the first I eagerly started this. I read this book in one sitting. (about an hour) This is another great job of writing by Mr. Stine. I thought he was losing his touch. Some of his books were beginning to be about the same thing. But then I read the Fear Hall series. This book did not have as many suprises and twists as the first did, but it still satisfied me.If you read the first and for some reason you haven't read this one then grab a copy and read it immediatly.

This story obviously continues where part one has left off. Hope still deals with the same problem(s) and is on the run for the cops. The sequal was even better then part one (to my opinion). It gave you more insight on Hope's thoughts and her way with dealing things. Actually this story was very sad, but I guess this was also the only way to end this serie. These series are really worthwhile reading.

Though, this book isn't as good as the first part, it's still a good read.In the conclusion Hope and her "friends" are forced out of Fear hall and into a abandon house where "they" are hiding out. In the process, Hope meets a new guy,Chris who isn't very interesting in my opinion, and "Darryl" still can't stop killing. It ended really sad, but I wish R.L. Stine had of written it that Hope went to a mental hospital or something like that. I mean he got the readers to love Hope in the first book and in this one make everything seem like her fault, although it really wasn't since she didn't know what she was doing. The issue of Muliple Personality Disorder, was obviously not researched very well by the author. If you want a more mature and more researched book about MPD I highly recommend "Tell Me Your Dreams" by Sidney Sheldon, it's kinda like this one but it's for more mature readers.

Hope Mathis has fled Fear Hall. Hope really is the killer. She just imagined that her boyfriend was the murderer. Hope hides in an abandoned sorority house to keep herself away from the police. The ending is sad. Why is the ending sad? Buy this book.

Okay, I'm reviewing the first and second. They were both gripping and there wasn't a safe moment in the books. They were freaky. I didn't understand it all. Did Hope imagine Jasmine and Eden and what's-his-face? I didn't get it at all? I mean, the ending was totally freaky. I couldn't comprehend it all, but I liekd it anyway. R.L. Stine shoudl write an Amazon. Com Author's review to explain it all.

I purchased this for my daughter to help keep her interested in reading during the summer months. It worked. She loves to read, loves thrillers, scy-fys and mysteries. Now that she's older she enjoys shows like SVU, Criminal Minds and CSI. Now they've been passed on to my young nephew who reads like he breathes and he'll pass them down to his younger siblings! I love that Amazon has made these books available for our kids to have to enrich their reading skills and further their interests.
