From Thea's Dungeon

Any other Christopher Pike fans in the house? Anyone that grew up in the 80s and 90s is familiar with a few key authors that wrote young adult series’. There’s “Francine Pascal” of Sweet Valley Twins fame. There’s R.L. Stine (and I’m talking BEFORE the Goosebumps phenomenon, with the Fear Street books). R.L. Stine has been called the Stephen King of young adult novels, but I beg to differ–if anyone deserves this title, it is the master of YA horror, Christopher Pike.

....


I’m gonna make a big statement here and put it out in the universe–Christopher Pike is one of the most under-appreciated authors of our time. In my humble opinion, he has ideas that make Stephen King’s imagination look pale and meek in comparison (and this is big stuff from me as King is one of my favorite authors). Indeed, some of the newer YA paranormal/horror books ain’t got NOTHING on Christopher Pike.
