"Ripped from the Headlines of the Past, Chris Woodyard presents a new collection of Victorian and Edwardian ghosts, evil entities, Fortean mysteries, and the paranormal panics and obsessions of long ago. There are apparitions of fiery devils, giant ghosts with clubs, Men and Women in Black, death omens, uncanny objects, ghostly murder victims, and ghastly phantom faces peering in windows, all resurrected from original 19th-century sources." -Kestrel Publications

*Fiery devils roaming Bracken County, Kentucky

*The Wild Man of Stamford—madman or myth?
