Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- This collection of fictional sightings creates the potential for a few nightmares a la Stephen King. Each of the eight stories is varied in plot and style, and is guaranteed to raise some hairs on the back of the neck. From ``Miranda,'' who lures unsuspecting Yankee soldiers to her decaying mansion, to the romance of ``The Last Waltz,'' the book will draw readers into the time period of the Civil War. The chilling novella ``Fearful Rock'' includes murderous spirits and corpses leaving their skins to walk the Earth each night. The only drawback is the uninviting cover art. --Paula Hollis Grundset, Pohick Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA
