Editorial Reviews

Tidewater Times columnist
The narratives in this new book are more than just tales of haunting spirits; they are also about our land and our history, and Ed breathes life into them as few writers have done before. This is quite simply the largest and best collection ever published on the subject.

    Great Read!

    I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland around where most of Ed's stories take place. I know one of the persons he writes about and I can tell you Mr. Okonowitz does not exaggerate! These are great quick reads. It's great to be able to have access to him on my nook.
