I am looking for a series of books from the late 80's early 90's. There were at least 2 books in the series, called "Shivers" or "Chills". They were a collection of horror stories for Young Adults. I used to borrow them from my local library all the time as a teen; I am now 33 and have been searching in vain for these books for years.
One of the stories I remember the most was about a young boy who had to walk through either a builders yard or a lumber yard regularly in the dark. He used to imagine that there was a monster behind him and try not to run. One night the monster becomes real and the last thing the boy feels is its claws on his back and the story ends.
I read these in Britain so possibly they had a different name elsewhere.
