Description

Known for her series of true ghost stories, Barbara Smith is back, this time with a collection of fictional ghostly tales set in real Alberta locations. So light the fire and prepare to be spooked by these delightfully eerie stories, including: * A young man trying to get home to Edmonton from Fort McMurray has a brush with death when he takes a ride in a phantom van * Three friends having brunch in Red Deer are joined by the ghost of a woman from a time gone by * The angry spirit of a woman killed on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River gets vengeance on the Edmonton man who caused her death * Kindly spirits give two lonely young people in Lethbridge a nudge in the right direction, forever changing their lives for the better * A well-meaning constable in Lloydminster inadvertently tries to help the ghost of a local hermit in his search for the money he was forced to leave behind when he died * Two soulmates, separated at birth, are reunited in death at the Okotoks Erratic * And more.
