Stine told CNN in September 2014, the new “Fear Street” books would reflect how young adult fiction has changed since the 90’s and they would be longer, more adult and more violent. “”For me, it’s thinking of new scares, plot twists and cliffhanger chapter endings I haven’t done before, moving into the modern world,” Stine dished. “It will be a roller coaster ride of fearful surprises.”
