From the Back Cover
Are you brave enough for Scary Stories?
Some boys and girls were at a party one night. There was a graveyard down the street, and they were talking about how scary it was.
"Don't ever stand on a grave after dark," one of the boys said. "The person inside will grab you."
"A grave doesn't scare me," said one of the girls. "I'll do it right now. . . ."
Welcome to the macabre world of Scary Stories. Inside, you'll find alarming tales of horror, dark revenge, and the supernatural, with spine-tingling illustrations by renowned artist Brett Helquist.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE KINDLE EDITION
First off, I love these books and the one star is specifically for the Kindle edition. It includes none of the original Stephen Gammell artwork. It doesn't even include the updated art from recent editions that people didn't care much for.
Second, the Kindle edition omits the author's bibliography and the other information about the folklore that inspired all of the stories... which is a shame.
As a side: my copy came as an original in nearly mint condition. Luck.
