R.L. Stine haunts Twitter with 14-tweet short story

Master of (young adult) horror R.L. Stine spent Tuesday evening tweeting out an original, short story. It’s about a sandwich, required 14 tweets to flesh out, and is generally delightful. The gimmick is timely, sharply executed, and it’s one he’s pulled before. I’ll hang up and listen.

The 71-year-old Goosebumps writer has sold 400 million books and also co-created the underrated Eureeka’s Castle. But he’s yet to match the blistering highs and harrowing turns of 1994’s immortal Ghost Beach.
