More Spooky Campfire Tales

Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore

Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings, and other strange occurrences under starry skies.  

Read about a loan shark who is a real vampire (and that’s not just a figure of speech); a pretty girl who will suck you dry (Estrid); and a terrifying haunted bridge at Gettysburg where the ghosts are all to real; plus 22 more spooky tales! American folklorist and ghost story author S.E. Schlosser pulls a new set of spooky ghost stories and camfire tales out of her capacious sleeve in this sequel to the very successful Spooky Campfire Tales.

Whether told around the campfire on a dark and stormy night or read aloud from the backseat of the family van on the way to grandma’s, this is a ghost story collection to treasure.
