Charles Comments: So close. If they had only named it “Goosebumps” they would have had a hit series on their hands!

Published 1974

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.56 out of 10)

    Looking good, Lou Ferrigno!

    Is Rad Bradbury Ray’s cooler brother?

    Talk to me Goose.

    This gets my award for the second most lazy cover* ever featured on GSS. Makes dollar store Halloween tat look classy.

    *After this.

    @THX: Needs a +1 against spelling tag.

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    A gravestone smeared with blood and with a snake atop the blood? Why not throw in a skull and some spiders while you’re at it?

    @Fracis Boyle: maybe the zombie really is made of plastic. That would explain how it stayed still long enough to develop cobwebs.

    @THX 1139: Rad Bradbury, author of such classics as Fahrenheit 10,000, the Martian Spectaculars, and Something Wicked Cool Comes this Way.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    That monster is not particularly threatening.
    Considering his attacking arm has cobwebs all over it.

    Gooseflesh. The other white meat.

  11. Tag Wizard Says:

    +1 for THX

    Not to be confused with his younger cousin, Brad Raybury

    When zombies play air piano…

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    In addition to the spelling, the punctuation also gives me gooseflesh.

  14. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @THX 1139: 1) Lou finally returns to playing the hulk in the TV adaptation of Marvel Zombies?

    @Tag Wiz & THX: His other cousin, who’s trying a bit too hard to look cool, is Brad Ray-bans.

    Generic Hulk, generic tombstone, generic moon, generic bat… I don’t think the “artist” even attended UAI!

    Was it a money-back guarantee? If you didn’t get GOOSEFLESH! did you get your 75c back?

    I was going to give individual GSS to other posters, but damn it, you all get one. Exceptionally witty today, lads.

    @THX: Yes. Ray was a cool guy in many ways, but never rad. As a semi-native of LA, I’m sure he’d have agreed.

    @Francis: Agreed. This one at least took a bit more use of scissors and glue.

    @Tor: I LOL.

    @Bruce: Don’t forget Totally Awesome Dandelion Wine.

    @BC: And the Random Capitalization.

    @Charles the submitter: This is an American book, and Americans say “goosebumps”, not “gooseflesh”, so what gives with the title?

  16. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    When publishing a bloodcurdling etc. Horror anthology, why put the word ‘bumps’ in the title if you can use the word ‘flesh’ instead?

  17. A. R. Yngve Says:

    ALSO FEATURING stories by
    Radmond Palmer
    Rad Kurtzweil

    That zombie is doing the classic Hey Y’all intro for a YouTube let’s play series.
