That Sound You Hear Upstairs… The Chill Running Up Your Spine… The Creature Coming Straight For You…
Welcome to FRIGHTLAND, a scary new middle-grade series inspired by the classic books we grew up on, featuring covers by artists like genre poster creator Flavio Greco Paglia and original 90’s Goosebumps artist Tim Jacobus.
FRIGHTLAND books 1-4 are only the beginning. FRIGHTLAND is a planned 12-book anthology series. Each book is a self-contained novel, but the stories exist in a shared universe and there will be easter-eggs and details that tie everything together throughout. After the 12-book series run, the author has plans for a Frightland Literary Universe (FLLU) “Avengers Assembled” style 13th novel that brings the whole thing definitively together.
#1 The Wildman of Shaggy Creek
Something lives in the woods behind Scott’s new house. It’s big, it’s hairy, and it smells worse than a dead skunk in the rain. When Scott accepts a dare to camp in the woods all night, Hailey is the only friend who will help him. But Scott doesn’t really believe in the creature lurking along Shaggy Creek—it’s just a story, right?

It’s in the middle of nowhere, Aunt Ethel is a little weird, and Gavin is forced to sleep on an old, lumpy feather bed. Then Gavin discovers something worse: the lumps are moving. Torrie thinks he’s just crazy—there’s no way something’s alive inside the mattress—until the lumps begin to hatch…
