These set of horror books have been my favourite.
It been with me for about 20 years now.
I've just rewraped the plastic cover but the books now are still in a rather bad condition.
All the pages turn brownish!
Althought it's a young adult horror book, I still enjoy reading it now.
Back the the days when...
I brought these books using my save up lunch pocket money.
I was getting S$1.00 a day in Primary School in the 1980s.
A book cost about S$5.00 at that time.
I mostly brought it in a second hand bookstore near my school.
So it was like getting one book every two weeks whenever I've save up enough.
Maybe buying these was not easy so I extra treasured it.
Some titles were hard to find and the one that took me the longest to find was "Swamp Witch".
I was then in Secondary 1 or 2 when I've finally found this book and thus completed my dark forces collection.
Many favorites in this series are "The Doll", " Devil Wind" and "Ashton Horror"
Do you have any books that you've read many many years ago and still love it now?
