Are you scared of the dark? Does being in a spooky place make you want to run and hide? Usually, the more you know about something, the less afraid you are apt to be. With that in mind, Creep Out explains the function or purpose of six types of potentially frightening places, demystifying their key features and distinctive elements while introducing famous examples that a reader could encounter in real life--or perhaps explore virtually from behind the safety of a computer screen. A scene-setting diagram closes each book, highlighting some of the elements common to the particular place.
