Read full description of the books:
This is the third volume in Chris Priestley's Tales of terror (there are also two specials as well) and follows a similar style, where an event causes the main character to be inconvenienced so that to while away the time stories are told - and hence the tales of terror. In addition throughout the series of stories you slowly have unfold the back story of why that person is in that situation to start with and what is their fate (and so in a way becoming the "last" tale of terror in the book).
Like many stories of this nature - once the 'twist" is know the power of the story is somewhat diminished - bit like knowing the punch line to a joke, its not so funny the second time around, and likewise once you know what the twist is then the suspense is lost. Now do not get me wrong this not a criticism, since it has been the basis of many a late night fireside ghost story, no just a warning that if you read these books in any great quantity the danger is that you start to see what is coming.
I think this is a great series of tales contained within an entertaining series of books. its great for dipping in to and each tale is different to the last. I hope that the series will continue in future volumes.

Read information about the authorHis father was in the army and so he moved around a lot as a child and lived in Wales. He was an avid reader of American comics as a child, and when he was eight or nine, and living in Gibraltar, he won a prize in a newspaper story-writing competition. He decided then “that my ambition was to write and illustrate my own book”.
He spent his teens in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, before moving to Manchester, London and then Norfolk. He now lives in Cambridge with his wife and son where he writes, draws, paints, dreams and doodles (not necessarily in that order). Chris worked as an illustrator and cartoonist for twenty years, working mainly for magazines & newspapers (these include The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Economist and the Wall Street Journal) before becoming a writer. He currently has a weekly strip cartoon called 'Payne's Grey' in the New Statesman.
Chris has been a published author since 2000. He has written several books for children & young-adults, both fiction and non-fiction, and
has been nominated for many awards including the Edgar Awards, the UKLA Children's Book Award and the Carnegie Medal. In recent years he has predominantly been writing horror.
Ever since he was a teenager Chris has loved unsettling and creepy stories, with fond memories of buying comics like 'Strange Tales' and 'House of Mystery', watching classic BBC TV adaptations of M R James ghost stories every Christmas and reading assorted weirdness by everyone from Edgar Allen Poe to Ray Bradbury. He hopes Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror will haunt his readers in the way those writers have haunted him.
