R.L. Stine—creator of the Goosebumps series that allowed many a kid to escape the horrors of middle school with comforting tales of murder—has written so many best-selling stories by now that he could pretty much just give them away. And so that’s what he did late last week, tweeting a brief tale about a haunted kitchen to his followers that you can read below. It’s admittedly slight, true, but normally for the feeling of horror slowly mounting line-by-line, you’d have to follow Courtney Stodden (and you don’t want to do that). Still, it’s got nothing on this follow-up that manages to tell a complete and compelling story in a mere two sentences, and which we would definitely buy if Stine ever felt the urge to put it in paperback.
