Overview

Little Rock by day is a vibrant, modern metropolis, alive with commerce and energy. By night, however, it is a city of the unquiet dead. At the Arkansas State Capitol, a politician's spirit rides the elevator. On Woodson Lateral Road, a pale girl in a torn dress flags down drivers for a final ride. At The Empress of Little Rock Bed and Breakfast, a ghostly gentleman greets guests on the stairs. Across the Arkansas River, in the bowels of the U.S.S. Razorback submarine, spectral sailors stand at eternal battle stations. Just down the street at the library in Argenta, a phantom mob is doomed to replay their part in a terrible crime. In Mount Holly Cemetery, the headstones creep across the grass by moonlight, witnessed only by wraiths in Victorian dress.

These are just some of the stories to be found in The Ghosts of Little Rock -- a blood-chilling journey to 18 of Central Arkansas' most haunted places. Written by the paranormal investigators who have been there long after the living have locked the doors and gone home for the night, it is a stroll down some of the darkest streets in the city, to places where the dead refuse to stay dead.

    A quick, haunting read

    Coming in at just over 50 (ebook) pages, Ghosts of Little Rock concisely describes about a dozen or so paranormal events linked to the city's rather dark past (more than a few somehow related to the Civil War). The authors put forth several hypotheses as to why the area is so paranormally active in the introduction, one of the more surprising being that a potential volcano exists nearby the city (in Magnet Cove) containing large quantities of magnetite. The remainder of the book is made up of short stories (2 to 4 pages each or so) of the paranormal. Based on eyewitness accounts, each story has a quick historical introduction followed by a tale (or three) of someone's experience at the location (usually not the authors' experience, but sometimes). While I didn't find most of the hauntings particularly disturbing, the historical backdrops to the hauntings often could be - stories of murder most of the time, including an especially gruesome one towards the end of the book involving a man being lynched, shot, dragged through the streets and then burned. The authors end each story with directions to the haunted site just in case someone might want to make a visit to the place after reading about it, but I doubt there'll be many takers.
