Prolific author R.L. Stine is celebrating Halloween a little early this year by publishing his latest story entirely on Twitter.

Stine, who has introduced entire generations of children to the horror genre, recently resurrected his "Fear Street" series with the new book "Party Games," thanks in large part to a Twitter campaign that went viral.

On Tuesday night, the social network became the home of his latest work, distributed in "chapters" of 140 characters or less:

There you have it, a mini R.L. Stine masterpiece, delivered in 15 tweets (including the title).

Stine has had some practice doing this. In February 2012, he tweeted the story of a haunted kitchen. And on Halloween that same year, Stine tweeted a spooky story complete with instructions on how it should be read aloud.

On Thursday, Stine will be taking over Scholastic's social media accounts to chat with fans via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more.
