Do you need a spooky story to tide you over until Halloween tomorrow? “Goosebumps” author R.L. Stine is here for you.

Earlier this week, Stine posted a complete creepy narrative via his Twitter account, beginning with the tweet,

We won’t give away too much, but the story did indeed involve someone finding something odd in their meal (which had “a hairy, three-fingered claw”). Check out the full story on Stine’s Twitter account here

As noted by Ed Mazza of The Huffington Post, Stine has tried this style before – in 2012, he wrote a creepy story for the Halloween season and earlier that year, he tweeted a story.

Stine published the book “Party Games” this past September and a movie based on the “Goosebumps” series, which stars actor Jack Black as a fictional version of the author, “The Giver” actress Odeya Rush as his daughter Hannah, and Dylan Minnette of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” as Hannah’s friend Zach. Zach accidentally frees the scary creatures about which Stine writes from Stine’s books and the three must work to send them back. It’s due to be released this August, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
