This spin-off of Choose Your Own Adventure features larger format books like the last few from the main series. It is likely that they were released to exploit the enormous success of juvenile horror novels at the time of their publication. The text on the back of some of the earlier books in the series ("Give yourself goosebumps...choose your own nightmare...") seems a fairly obvious jab at the competition. All of the original titles were reprinted in hardcover by Gareth Stevens. More than a decade after the series ended, a second series with the same name but different titles began.
