R.L. Stine Takes to Reddit and Tells All


90s kids probably remember Goosebumps, the popular series of children’s horror novellas that put kid protagonists in all manner of spooky situations. Author R.L. Stine took to Reddit for an AMA last week, holding forth on questions like “Do you write out fully sketched profiles of characters before you start the plot?” and “Why the war on bedtime?” He also shares whether he liked those R.L. Grime mixes. Questions like these are as telling as the answers, revealing fans are there for Stine’s deep cuts.
