Scholastic Launches Bone-Chilling New Book Series by World-Wide Bestselling Author R.L. Stine — Goosebumps Horrorland

 “R.L. Stine rode a wave of kid popularity, partly fueled by the fledgling Internet, to become perhaps the best-selling children’s author of the 20th century.” 
— Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly (August 17, 2007)

 
New York, NY (January 21, 2008) — Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education and media company, is delighted to announce that it will publish an all-new series from R.L. Stine, author of the monstrously successful Goosebumps® series—featuring Stine’s hallmark combination of humor and horror. Goosebumps HorrorLand™, an original twelve-book series, will launch with two books in April 2008.
 
The new series will be an immersive storytelling experience welcoming fans to HorrorLand, a vast theme park which R.L. Stine describes as “the scariest place on Earth.” In a Goosebumps first, the new series will be a serialized adventure, and the story won’t end on the final page of book one, Revenge of the Living Dummy. Instead, the spine-tingling and funny bone-tickling adventures will continue on the Internet and in books #2-12, each of which can also stand alone. The first nine HorrorLand books all will feature a combination of frightful new faces as well as the vilest villains from the original Goosebumps series. Ordinary kids are being summoned to HorrorLand—but why? Readers are in for the ride of their lives as the cast of characters trapped in the theme park grows larger with each book, and their situations become more and more perilous.
