Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Forest sounds and the gentle slap of Pacific waves form the background music for this collection of ghostly tales. Master storyteller S. E. Schlosser adds to her enviable bibliography of eerie, yet strangely winning stories of local hauntings and unexplained occurrences. Ideal campfire accompaniment.

Meet the Author

S. E. Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of “let’s pretend” quickly built themselves into full-length stories. She created and maintains the Web site AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all 50 states, some dating back to the origins of America. Paul Hoffman illustrates books of many genres—children’s titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes, and cookbooks. For the Spooky series, he employs a scratchboard technique and an active imagination.

    This is the 2nd book I've read in her "Spooky" series

    This is the 2nd book I've read in her "Spooky" series and it was even better than "Spooky Washington". I love folklore and short stories in general and Sandy Scholosser is a great storyteller! Her sidekick illustrator, Paul Hoffman, with his mysterious looking etchings are the perfect complement to this collection. My father is a professional artist and I remember he used to buy us kids linoleum blocks and we would use metal tools to carve our drawings. We would use his hand-press and create Christmas cards to send out! Do I appreciate all the hard work and talent that went into those etchings? I should say so, since I have tried etchings myself! Hmmm! What should I read next? "Spooky Montana" or perhaps go east and try "Spooky South Carolina?" Whatever choice I make, I know it will be good!
