Spookiest Stories Ever: Four Seasons of Kentucky Ghosts

If tree branches scratching at your window on a stormy April night or the hot, sticky oppression of a stifling summer’s day puts fear into your heart. Or rustling November leaves, and the chill that sneaks into your bones during the darkened days of winter makes you quiver with anxiety, then reading spooky thrillers shouldn’t wait until October. From masterful storytelling duo Roberta and Lonnie Brown comes Spookiest Stories Ever: Four Seasons of Kentucky Ghosts, a creepy collection of tales from their home state.

Featuring familiar Kentucky landmarks such as the Palace Theater and the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville and Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, these accounts from across the commonwealth are sure to put a tingle in the reader’s spine. These notable stories, including tales of the “chime child” who can see and talk to ghosts, graveside appearances, and the Spurlington Witch of Taylor County, occur in all four seasons and come from every corner of Kentucky. An essential part of the American storytelling tradition, these ghost stories will delight readers who love getting goose bumps all year long.

“Through the talented, kindhearted narrators of these stories, readers of this book become part of Kentucky’s storytelling community and participate in this state’s rich traditional heritage. Readers are sure to find this book both meaningful and enjoyable.” —from the foreword by Elizabeth Tucker, author of Haunted Halls: Ghostlore of American College Campuses
