The Old Inn clings precariously to a cliff top above a storm-lashed ocean. Ethan and Cathy are sick. Their father has left them to fetch a doctor... but they are not alone for long.

A visitor comes begging for shelter, and so the children, who have an unnatural appetite for stories of a macabre persuasion, sit out the throes of the storm in the company of a sailor with more than enough grisly tales to satisfy them. But whatever horrors the stormy night can conjure, they are nothing compared with the heart-stopping revelation of a new dawn...

Eleven spine-chilling tales for older children from bestselling author Chris Priestley.

Listener Opinions

    " Rally enjoyed this spooky collection of scary tales - not to be read before bed unless you want a sleepless night! Hated the enormous spider most but then I am arachnaphobic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Selene | 2/5/2014

    " I love these stories! Can't believe they were written for children as they would undoubtedly linger in any child's mind. Only 4 stars as they were stories about the sea (not really my cup of tea) - but looking forward to the next installment. Brill!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty Larasati | 1/22/2014

    " Picking up this book from the shelves, I didn't think it would have been as eerie as it is. I underestimated the horror for it's enfantine cover illustration. The stories were a build up, each story getting creepier than the previous. I was initially drawn by the illustration but was even happier with the purchase since the story was very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sofie | 1/13/2014

    " If you like short stories then this is the book for you! They are very curious and weird stories but lovely to read. Some even gave me chills. The ending is a slight twist which I found quite creepy. HIGHLY ENJOYABLE BOOK :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 1/5/2014

    " Quite creepy if predictable. I liked the first book and probably liked this one more. Some of the stories were quite eerie and clever and others I have heard before but the author puts a new spin in many of them with the seafaring theme. I particularly enjoyed the snail story! Not a challenging book but light, entertaining and a bit disturbing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 theghostwriter | 12/31/2013

    " gothic, terrifying, creepy, fantastically written, engaging and i just could not put it down. i'll be reading everything of mr. priestley's fro this point on, you can believe that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonia | 12/29/2013

    " I was drawn to this book by the cover, and I was not disappointed, I loved everything about this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Orrin Grey | 12/19/2013

    " More old-fashioned ghostly stories in the same vein as Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror. I actually liked this one more than that one. Most of the stories here are Poe-esque tales of murder and madness, but there's also a Sargasso Sea story about killer snails! Yes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 12/2/2013

    " While waiting for their father to come home, a brother and sister sit and listen to an old sea man as he tells them spooky tales of his travels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katarina | 11/24/2013

    " Not as scary ar his first, "Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror", but equally mesmerising. I'm eagarly looking forward to his next book: "Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Wilcox | 10/17/2013

    " A children's book, well teenagers book.. But a damn good read even for adults. The short stories have great twists in them, and the overarching story also twists at the very end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella_splendens | 10/7/2013

    " It was wonderful, it was amazing and very sad. I loved it. Please read this little book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 6/26/2013

    " Another excellent collection of stories by Chris Priestley, with illustrations by David Roberts. I really enjoyed 'Tales of Terror from the Black Ship', a wonderful collection of stories from the sea with a twist at the end. A joy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Leigh | 4/1/2013

    " A fun read. It was a ncie change of pace for me and the ending was amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Regina | 3/8/2013

    " Good old-fashioned creep out tales that were seamlessly woven into the main story, which involved young siblings and a mysterious visitor. Age appropriate yet very appealing to any adult reader who's a fan of the macabre. Unexpected twist at the end. Highly recommended at four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 nicole j. wroblewski | 2/2/2013

    " Okay, so the website for this book has a game where you fish for CORPSES if that tells you anything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aleksandra | 1/18/2013

    " My rating: 4.5 of 5 "

    " Not as good as the previous ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melancholia Durer | 8/7/2012

    " I simply adored this novel, I've read almost all Priestly's books and he hasn't let me down yet. The stories are genuinly spooky but what scared me the most was the main characters' story. The book isn't to gory and the ending is a perfect cliche - though still very scary. I would suggest this story to anyone who loves to be frightened - to quote Cathy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 6/10/2012

    " YAY!! Another one of these books!! I was so happy when I saw it in the library. "

    " Excellent scary stories, very atmospheric and some are quite haunting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie-Lousie | 9/25/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book, though it didn't give me nightmares like the reviews said it would. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 9/22/2011

    " Very well done! Awesome to have new stories in the old sea story tradition. Kind of like a mariner's Twilight Zone for older kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Wilborn | 8/24/2011

    " This is a good tween book for those that like the dark side. The short stories are very strange and creepy, so kids will love them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 7/26/2011

    " Priestley writes stories that I wish I had grown up reading. But then again, I was an extremely morbid child who has grown into an extremely morbid adult. I enjoyed this even more than Uncle Montagues's Tales of Terror, and look forward to reading more of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aarin | 6/11/2011

    " quite good thought it was spooky "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seraph [it's a beautiful day] | 6/7/2011

    " This was AMAZING. Seriously, from the delightfully chilling tales to the creeping side-story, I loved this book to the core. There was no part I didn't like... READ IT. YOU HAVE TO. Aw, and the ending was just... Perfect! Not all happy, but just perfect for the book. No doubt about it, 5 stars!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sternchen | 5/15/2011

    " wonderfully scary and scarily wonderful <3
    more, please! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 5/12/2010

    " Another great book by Priestly! The stories were so creative and interesting. Even though the book isn't directed towards my age group I really enjoyed it. The book ended with an interesting little twist. I look forward to reading more "Tales of Terror." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 3/3/2010

    " While waiting for their father to come home, a brother and sister sit and listen to an old sea man as he tells them spooky tales of his travels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ollie | 8/11/2009

    " I don't normally read "scary" books; however I thought this was a pirate book. It scared me so I eventually had to quit reading it. If you are into ghostly/scary stories on a dark night, this book is for you. BTW it is a juvenile book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/22/2009

    " i LOVED this book! it had a totally shocking ending. it was really good! "
