    An Effectively Brilliant Masterpiece of Literature

    Stephen Osborne's writing is fluent and direct; yet it carries polical and socio-economic undertones that reflect and contrast the views of his generation to that of this new century. He has taken a subject with very little importance and added CONTEXT; beautiful and well thought, making his work a pioneering piece beyond typical midwestern folklore and setting a new and very high standard for future psuedoscientific literary endeavors.

    A Spooky Read!!

    A big fan of the 'Haunted Indiana' books, I simply could not pass this one up. I realized I had made the right choice when I put the book down, very satisfied, after reading it in one sitting. Stephen Osborne doesn't limit himself to the cliche, as he shares a wide variety of hauntings; from ghosts that guard their graves to the souls that are trapped in what was once their home. Osborne has actually visited haunted sites with professional ghost-hunters, and has encountered the paranormal first-hand! He also adds a touch of humor that you cannot resist smirking to, even if reading a book about ghosts. 'South Bend Ghosts' will leave you with some new knowledge of Indiana, along with legends you won't soon forget the next time you pass through. I highly recommend this!

    Good for raising a few goosepimples

    South Bend Ghosts is very well written. I especially liked the chapters pertaining to people's personal accounts with the supernatural, although the legends and local stories are fun as well. Informative as well, as I had no idea that Indiana boasted one of the most famous female serial killers before reading this book! Highly recommended!
