I recently watched the Fear Street Trilogy on Netflix and was instantly hit with a wave of nostalgia that I couldn't ignore. I was immediately thrown into memories of reading horror as a teen and wanted to re-read all of my old favorites. As I was compiling my to-read list, I was pleasantly surprised to see that our library system has a great variety of teen horror from back in the day. 

If you are in the mood for some old-school teen reads, the following authors of teen horror from the 1980s and 1990s will surely kick start that nostalgia feeling.

If you need even more 80s and 90s teen horror, our ILL system will help get books outside of the HCPL catalog. 

Whether you are looking to relive some old feelings from days gone by, or wanting to start a series that inspired the Netflix Fear Street Trilogy, we've got a book for that!
