Scary Stories from the Attic

The Attic refers to titles A through F.

Our Best Scary Stories concept has really become popular, especially around Halloween. I have had to create new ways to store all of your pages so they can stay around for a very long time.

As scary stories pile up I allow them to stay in the Best Scary Stories section for a while so they can be read and rated, and then I move them into these archive pages. The archives will still function as before and you can still add comments to stories.

Although new stories could be submitted here, please submit them in the Best Scary Stories section so everyone can find them easily. As you get used to the site you'll find where I archive them quite easily.

Archive of Scary Stories - titles A through F

Your new scary stories should still be submitted to Best Scary Stories as before, then, after they get rated by others, I will move them here according to their title.

If you submit here by mistake, I'll still find it, just not as quickly. Remember, your stories must still meet our guidelines and quality standards.

When commenting on a story you don't like, be constructive, and leave the rude language behind.
