More About the Author

M.D. Spenser (born May 1, 1953) is the author of the 36-book Shivers series. The books were scary novels, each 120-125 pages long, aimed at readers from 8 to 12 years old.

The Shivers books were published in between 1996 and 1998. Spenser also wrote the six-book Humano Morphs series. Both series have been out of print for some time, but the Shivers series is now being published as ebooks, available at Amazon's Kindle store.

There is an internet petition circulating asking for the Shivers series to be republished in its entirety in paperback. It can be signed at:

Spenser is an international journalist originally from the United States but based now in Belgium. He is writing a novel set in modern London, titled Some Say In Ice. He is also working on a book about running and a humorous memoir about his years in journalism.

Spenser lives in Brussels with his family and his parrot.

i finally found a copy of this book at a used bookstore after 13 years. i read this book when i was 10 years old and it really freaked me out. i was surprised to actually be able to locate a copy after it having been out of print for so long.
i loved this book when i was younger. i remember the part where the phonograph was talking backwards. that is what freaked me out BIG time. i'm going to read it again just to see if it has the same effect on me that it used to.

Format: Paperback
Every day, Kenny's parents tell him to stay away from the causeway bridge and the island beyond. And every day, Kenny and his friends dream of crossing the causeway. They finally decide to go for it! That simple act of crossing a bridge sets in motion a horrible waking nightmare. Fear turns to horror as they search for a vanishing little boy. Curiosity becomes terror when they explore an old lighthouse and find the key to the mystery of the boy--- and the reason they were told to stay away from the island.
