Horror stories have always been my favorite, I don’t know if I can say that about a lot of people. But horror stories are interesting, they scare the hell out of you, but still are entertaining. Everyone loves to hear a good scary story (Editor’s Note: Not me). Whether you are sitting around a camp fire or sitting with family at night, horror stories always come up at times like these. So, let’s find some websites which give you short horror stories to read. Stories which you can finish in one read are always the best in case of horror stories, because you always want to know what happened in the end. Let’s start with the websites I found for reading short horror stories.
The website offers a good collection of short stories under various categories like children, fiction, romance, sci-fi, crime, humor, etc. Obviously, they also have a category for horror stories, which we are interested in. Under this category you can read all stories one by one or search amongst all through the sub categories like vampires, ghost stories, top 20, etc. You can also search by author name. When you click on a sub category name, you will be taken to a page where you will see all the stories listed. Each story will show you length of the story in pages, age rating, comments and star rating. When you click on a story title, it will open up in a new page. At the end of the story, you can rate the story according to your liking and you can also leave a comment if you like. Also, on the right hand side, you will see an option menu box, which gives you the following options: view comments, take a print of the story, mark the story as read, search more stories by the same author, and iPhone app link which allows you to download short stories which can be read on your iPhone.
This website also contains short stories under lot of genre. But, what we are interested in is the horror genre, and they do have a good collection under this category. You will see a long list of short horror stories when you land on this page. Each listed story has a title, date it was posted on, name of the author, and number of visitors to that story. You can select any story from the list to read and it will open up in a new page. At the top of the page you will see options to share the story with your friends and also an option to take a print out of the story.
The entire website is dedicated to telling you horror stories in a way that will give you chills. The look of the website is in itself pretty scary, as you can see in the screenshot above. The website lets you select from various categories like horror stories, ghost stories, classic horror, dark poetry, etc. Just select a story you want to read through its title. You can also see how many people have already read that story, as each title will show you this number at the end of a short description of the story.
Another website which has a good collection of horror stories. When you click on a story title, it will open up in a new tab. At the top of the page there will be option to download a MOBI or ePUB file for the story in case you want to read it on your Kindle, Nook, or phone. Otherwise you can just continue to read the story by scrolling down the page.
This website also has a huge collection of stories under different genre, including the horror one. You will see the list of horror stories when you land on this page. Each story is listed with its title, author name, length of the story in terms of word count, score the story received from the readers, and the date it was published on. When you click on the title of a story it will ask you to sign up with the website in case you want to download, rate or comment on the story. Otherwise, you can go ahead and read it without signing up. The story page allows you to increase or decrease the font size and even print the story. You can also like and share the story with your Facebook friends.
You can also check out websites to read and share six word stories.
These are the 5 websites which I found to be good to read short horror stories. Go ahead and read some of the stories on these websites, they will leave you with a scary feeling. If you are not the kind to get scared easily, then you should read for some good entertainment and maybe a good story to scare your friend.
