Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a ghostly gazeteer chronicling the numerous contemporary accounts of Northwestern hauntings and other strange happenings reported in British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.

The typical Northwestern ghost almost always appears alone, in the form of a faint, often grayish wisp. If it is seen, it is generally not heard. If heard, however, it frequently plays a musical instrument or sings. And while impish — occasionally bopping victims on the head with a pillow — it rarely harms the hauntee. The public ghosts inhabit restaraunts, museums, churches, theaters, hotels — even hospitals. In Yakima, Washington, the "Capitol Theater Ghost" is purported to have once saved a girl's life, while Seattle's famed Pike Place Market appears as well known for its restless spirits as for its excellent shops.

Synopsis:

Humorous ghosts, musical ghosts, snoring ghosts, hitchhiking ghosts, and a levitating dachshund — all in the Pacific Northwest! Containing over one hundred stories from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, as well as comprehensive notes and motif, subject, and location indices, these ghostly tales will reassure those who think they are the only ones with a ghost in the house!
