The Midnight Hour is amazing, amusing, and frightening. It will make you pause to wonder - about ghosts and spirits, fate and destiny, strange beasts and even stranger human beings. The accounts within describe encounters in Canada with monsters and mysteries from 1784 to the present. Editor and anthologist John Robert Colombo derived these true tales from nineteenth-century newspapers, personal correspondence, e-mails, interviews, and more. The collection is certain to entertain you … especially during "the midnight hour"!
John Robert Colombo is nationally known as "the Master Gatherer" for his many compilations of Canadiana. He has been called "Canada's Mr. Mystery" for such books as Mysterious Canada and Ghost Stories of Ontario. Colombo once said, "I do not believe in ghosts, I do not disbelieve in ghosts, but I do believe in ghost stories."
"Columbo takes his customary value-added approach in The Midnight Hour...any reader who agrees to suspend the reality question will have a fine time combing through the many tales...." -Paul Challen, Quill & Quire, April 1, 2004
