R.L. Stine writes a story of food safety and mysterious creatures just in time for Halloween.

Goosebumps author R.L. Stine recently took to Twitter to send out his latest story, in installments of 140 characters or fewer.

In January, it was announced that an earlier viral Twitter campaign had inspiredStine to resume his Fear Street series, starting with the all-new novel Party Games, released September 30.

Stine has also tweeted scary short stories before, including a story about a haunted kitchen, and another about a farmer who meets a ghost.

The prolific children’s horror fiction author (Welcome to Dead House, anyone?) stayed true to his talents in a short story called “What’s In My Sandwich?”

It involves an egg sandwich, clawed creatures, and a particularly unpleasant case of food poisoning, if you can call it that.

Later today, “scare master” R.L. Stein will also take over Scholastic’s social media accounts to answer fan questions and share scary stories, Goosebumps trivia, and jokes, and give away Goosebumps books.
