Overview

Lopaka Kapanui once again offers a spine-tingling collection of ghost stories sure to prick your soul and give you "chicken skin". A close friend and associate of the late Glen Grant, Kapanui continues Grant's legacy of storytelling while creating his own strong style that reveals the haunting side of paradise.

This new selection of tales probes into the places and people who have experienced the darker side of life in sunny Hawai'i. Lopaka distinguishes between ghosts and spirits - good and bad - including a possible explanation about the choking ghost and the various reasons why souls stuck between worlds return to haunt humans. Most of all, there are numerous stories and perspectives about the inexplicable encounters humans and spirits have had at the infamous Morgan's Corner, which are recounted with chilling finesse. Straddling both past and present, these tales hang timelessly as legend, folklore, and modern occurrences. Unembellished - and all the more powerful because of it - these tales provide a glimpse into another realm of Hawai'i's talk story circle.

As with the stories in Haunted Hawaiian Nights, these tales were passed down to the author over many years by everyday people. They transport us, who are still in the here and now, to other times and places we often want to avoid, but sometimes unwittingly stumble upon.
