The Creepypasta Collection, Vol 2 (Anthology Review)

I grew up obsessed with the internet, and with that obsession came an absolute adoration for online short stories - particularly creepypasta. I used to spend hours and hours on r/nosleep and creepypasta forums, and I genuinely enjoyed the first Creepypasta Collection volume, so when I saw the second volume, I purchased a copy immediately and started reading it … Continue reading The Creepypasta Collection, Vol 2 (Anthology Review)
