Teen Horror: 666: The Number Of The Beast by Various Authors

About the Book: 666 is a compilation of several horror authors short stories.
The King's Ruling: While it was nice to get a quick overview of the genre, the stories themselves were less than terrifying with some bordering on the inane. There were two great short stories, with the rest ranging from average to lame. I give it a 4 out of 10.
Spoilers (highlight to view): --->
Channel 99 by Peter Abrahams (Lame)
The legend of Anna Barton by Laurie Faria Stolarz (outstanding)
Saving face by Christopher Pike (average)
The little sacrifice by Joyce Carol Oates (lame)
