"Reader beware - you're in for MORE scares!"

- Series tagline

Goosebumps Gold is a children's anthology horror novella series concept by Red-Verse-Writer, based on the cancelled series of the same name that was intended to be a new series in the Goosebumps franchise by R.L. Stine. The books all follow a loose story arc similar to Goosebumps Horrorland, and the stories are often sequels to stories from the original series or its spin-offs. It is notable amongst Goosebumps series due to being written by a different author, and most notably for featuring much more graphic violence and serious situations compared to previous series.


Arc 1

  1. The Haunted Mask Lives!: "If looks could kill..." Teenage hoodlums Jenny Rower and Terry Shannon get their comeuppance when they steal a pair of animal masks from the costume shop seen in the past books to scare the local kids and become desperate when the masks fuse to their faces and begin altering their bodies. Meanwhile, the original haunted mask reveals itself to still be alive, taking control of Jenny and Terry and using them in a plot to get revenge on its former host, Carly-Beth Caldwell.
  2. The Gargoyle Guardian: "Stone cold killer." Nigel Borroughs is a urban explorer, investigating mysterious and abandoned properties to see if it's worth renovating or if anything useful is inside. Unfortunately, he often tends to drag along his son Norm with him on these trips. One particular investigation results in them getting trapped in a spooky old manor, and to make things worse, it turns out the manor is protected by a living gargoyle who kills anyone who enters the building, forcing Nigel and Norm to try to find a way to escape from the manor before the gargoyle kills them.
  3. Claws of Death Unconfirmed: "She's not kitten around." When zoophobic Jade Munroe's parents bring home a mysterious black cat they name Lil, her life seems to be on a downward spiral. Lil steals all the attention from her parents, frames Jade for bad things she does, and always breaks into Jade's room to harass her, in a way that can't just be a coincidence. Jade vows to get back at Lil, but when she speaks to the owner of a local pet shop, she learns that a cat that matches Lil's description has been connected to a series of deaths, and begins to believe that Lil may be the one responsible.
  4. Trap Master: "No Parents. No Rules. No Holding Back." In this brutal Home Alone-inspired story, neglected engineering prodigy Dell Chalkin is left home alone by his parents as they fly to England to watch his sister, a famous stage actress, perform live. After Dell fixes his neighbour's lawnmower, she gives him a remote control she found on the street, which unbeknownst to them contains a highly advanced chip created by a mysterious agency that wants it back at any cost. When agents of the organisation attempt to break into his home, Dell retaliates by putting his talents to use, creating violent booby traps to fight back against them.
  5. Go West, Young Snowman!: "He's bold, he's old, and he's really, really cold!" One year has passed since Jordan and Nicole's encounter with the Abominable Snowman, and they are staying with their aunt in Alaska while their father is on a work trip to the Himalayas. However, when their father returns from his trip, they find that there is a stowaway on the plane - another Abominable Snowman. Unlike the previous one encountered by the twins, this Snowman is a murderous beast intent on wrecking as much havoc as possible. With the creature causing a trail of destruction and mayhem all around the town, Jordan and Nicole resort to finding the Abominable Snowman they befriended last winter for help.
  6. Bad Movie Night: "We're talking REEL bad." Eighteen year-old Eddie Palmann hosts his own internet review show, Bad Movie Night, where he reviews bad movies he finds online or at the local thrift store and flea markets. One day, he comes across a seemingly normal copy of a horror film titled Day of the Walking Deceased, and decides to review it, despite the objections of his easily frightened twelve year-old sister Sarah. However, when lightning strikes their home, the murderous creatures in the film escape into the real world, and Eddie and Sarah learn about the history of the disc as they try to catch the creatures before they can kill anyone.
  7. I Caught an Alien!: "They're little green men. REALLY little." In this E.T.-inspired tale, after a mysterious meteor shower, young alien enthusiast Diane Keene and her friend George trace a crash-landed UFO and capture the pilot, a six-inch tall little green man. When Diane's fame-obsessed mother plots to turn the alien, a simple paramedic desperate to return home, in to the government, Diane and George are soon on the run from evil men in black, taking their diminutive friend cross-country as they try to find the parts to fix his ship.
