Goosebumps is a children's horror book franchise published by Scholastic Corporation. The books are written by author and creator R. L. Stine.
Beginning with the eponymous Goosebumps series in 1992, the Goosebumps franchise has spawned numerous followup and spin-off series. The franchise's other forms of media include a hit television series and a feature film.
The first three books in the Goosebumps franchise, Welcome to Dead House, Stay Out of the Basement, and Monster Blood were published at the same time in July 1992 as part of the original Goosebumps series. From 1992 to 1997, sixty-two books were published in the original series. The final book in the original Goosebumps series was Monster Blood IV.
After the original series ended, it was followed up by Goosebumps Series 2000 in 1998. However, it and the spin-off gamebook series, Give Yourself Goosebumps, were discontinued in 2000 after R. L. Stine's contract with Scholastic ended.
After receiving requests from fans for the Goosebumps series to return, R. L. Stine and Scholastic released the Goosebumps HorrorLand series in April 2008, with the books Revenge of the Living Dummy and Creep from the Deep. The series has since been followed up by Goosebumps Hall of Horrors, Goosebumps Most Wanted, and Goosebumps SlappyWorld.
