This book is a collection of twenty poems and articles taken from newspapers published in Salem during the 18th and 19th centuries. They contain mysterious accounts of sea serpents, ghostly visitations, and unexplained phenomena. Many of these tales are humorous, as real-world explanations were later discovered for these supernatural events. Also scattered through these newspapers were creative poetry and prose on ghostly topics.
Though many of the stories do not take place in Salem, as the newspapers had borrowed the accounts from elsewhere, they do provide a glimpse into what the residents of Salem were reading on the topic of the supernatural. And as Salem has had a unique history when it comes to relating to the paranormal, these articles do not disappoint.
