As the author of twelve ghost story collections, Nancy Roberts may certainly be considered an expert on the subject of the supernatural. In this book, she turns her attention to Georgia, capturing over fifty chilling stories from the Peachtree State.
Perhaps no other city in this country is as haunted as Savannah. Beneath this city’s romantic façade, lies a multitude of eerie tales. Here, Roberts describes the pirates that still reside in the Pirates’ House Restaurant, the angry spirit who haunts the Shrimp Factory restaurant, the strange happenings in the house of Jim Williams—the central character in the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil—and many other spooky stories.
The ghost stories of Savannah are only the beginning, though, for Georgia Ghosts takes you on a supernatural tour throughout the state. On St. Simons Island, you will shiver at the account of the ghost who haunts the island’s lighthouse. In Atlanta, you’ll hear of the ghost who now resides in the “Uncle Remus” House. In Fayetteville, you’ll learn why the legendary gunslinger “Doc” Holliday still waits outside the home of a lost love. And you will wonder about the identity of the mysterious man responsible for Georgia’s own version of Stonehenge located near Elberton.
From haunted college towns and opera houses to tales of werewolves that roam the countryside, no other collection covers the contemporary and classic ghost stories of the state as completely as Georgia Ghosts.
