    Best Ghost Tales of South Carolina

    If you could only have one book on SC ghosts in your collection, this is the one that I would recommend. I was only going to read one or two stories a night but I couldn't put the book down. I read it in one night!

    ...this is a great book! The stories are well-written and beg you to read just one more before bedtime. The creepy sketches help bring each tale alive too!

    This is just a great book if you like ghost stories. I've lived in South Carolina for 12 years and haven't heard many of them. So well-presented!

    Best Ghost Tales of South Carolina

    This is by far the best ghost book Zepke has written. My favorites are Lowcountry Voodoo, Gentleman Ghost and Headless Torso, and Hitchhiking Ghosts. A fun read!
