Cape Encounters: Contemporary Cape Cod Ghost Storiesby Dan Gordon 2, Gary Joseph
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In their own words, forty Cape Codders describe ghosts who descend staircases that no longer exist, kiss sleeping women, flip theater seats, fold laundry, and join musicians onstage. Among those sharing their stories are the former National Environment Coordinator, a scientist from the United States Geological Survey, a retired West Point professor and a Wampanoag Native-American educator.
While seeking out only the mysterious, the authors of Cape Encounters instead met thoughtful individuals who related their stories with humor and insight. Enter Cape Cod's historic, soulful homes and discover a world in which the past is very much alive.

Meet the Author
Dan Gordon first experienced the magic of the Cape as a child vacationing two weeks each summer in Chatham. His admiration for the Cape's soulful homes inspired him to spend the last decade researching the Cape's ghost stories. He authored the national bestsellers "Field of Screams: Haunted Tales from the Baseball Diamond, the Locker Room, and Beyond" and "Haunted Baseball: Ghosts, Curses, Legends & Eerie Events."
Gary Joseph, a lifelong Cape resident, has long been interested in accounts of ghost encounters. As a child, he enjoyed listening to adults tell these stories and observing the way people told them--their expressions, their mannerisms, and how they captivated an audience. He also writes about film, natural history, and the outdoors.
