Ghosts of Fear Street is a younger version of the Fear Street series, aimed at children ages 8 to 12. In every book, a 12-year-old child (sometimes with their friends or family) has a terrifying adventure in Fear Street, a small street in the town of Shadyside which is known by the kids in the books to have lots of ghosts and monsters. Every book has a different monster and child.

The series was released by the Simon & Schuster imprint Aladdin Paperbacks, and lasted for thirty-six books, released from 1996 to 1998. In August 2009, Simon & Schuster, under their Children's Publishing imprint, began to reissue the books in special two-in-one editions.

  • Despite being published under Stine's name, the books were in fact ghostwritten.
  • In 1998, a pilot episode for a potential Ghosts of Fear Street TV series was aired on abc, but the pilot episode was never picked up, possibly because the book series itself began to lose popularity, or because the pilot was way too silly for an R. L. Stine show.
