Book Description: Before Alan Brown wrote Haunted Places in the American South, only the locals knew what was lurking in these locations. Slamming doors, eerie lights, and Confederate soldiers' ghosts kept some folks too scared to talk with outsiders. Above Peavey Melody Music in Meridian, Mississippi, children may be heard giggling and running down an abandoned hallway that turns icy cold. At the Jameson Inn in Crestview, Florida, an apparition appears on surveillance tapes after filling the lobby with sweet-smelling cigar smoke. Seldom told and rarely--if ever--printed stories such as these join tales from haunted inns, mansions, forests, ravines, and prisons to create Haunted Places in the American South. The book collects ghost stories from fifty-five historically haunted sites in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Alan Brown gathered these stories from newspapers, magazines, museum directors, archaeologists, hotel managers, and many others who shared their disturbing experiences. Most of these stories have never appeared in book form, and some, such as the haunting of Peavey Melody Music, have never been published at all. Haunted Places in the American South differs from most other collections of southern ghost stories, for the featured sites include more than just haunted houses. Bridges, forts, governors' mansions, prisons, hotels, woods, theaters, cemeteries, and even a large rock are included as focal points for these tales. The book provides directions to the sites, notes, and a bibliography that will be useful to folklore scholars and to travelers seeking that cold and creepy brush with the supernatural. Alan Brown is a professor of English at the University of West Alabama. His books include Literary Levees of New Orleans, The Face in the Window and Other Alabama Ghostlore, and Shadows and Cypress: Southern Ghost Stories (University Press of Mississippi).

Book Description: Michigan has two beautiful peninsulas that are connected by stories, legends, and mysteries. This book is the perfect glove compartment companion for exploring those paranormal parts of the Mitten State, as most of these hotels, restaurants, theaters, lighthouses, and other places are open to the public. This road trip to "the other side," filled with hauntings, ghost towns, and bizarre tales of murder and mayhem, draws from more than 300 years of Michigan history--from the notoriously haunted remote lighthouses like Seul Choix in the Upper Peninsula to Eloise, one of the most famous psychiatric asylums in America, to the legend of Lover's Leap on Mackinac Island. What Purple Gang member still hangs out in Clare? What spirits lurk at Henry Ford's Greenfield Village? Here is a guide to all that and more, including Houdini's Detroit connections, the poisonings at Cass Corridor's Alhambra, and paranormal activity at Detroit's historic Fort Wayne. Puzzles are still waiting for a solution; Ripley's Believe It or Not! once offered $100,000 to anyone who could solve the strange phenomenon of the Paulding Lights near Watersmeet.
