Spooky Georgia

Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore

Spooky Georgia by S.E. Schlosser

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

You’ll encounter the phantom Bell ringer of Atlanta, the Resurrection Man of Augusta, the ferryman of Macon and the ghost of the lighthouse keeper on Saint Simon’s Island, along with many more spirits and unseen presences that haunt the mountains, battlefields, and shores of Georgia.

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

When the pastor returned from his duties for a late lunch, his wife came running up to him as soon as he entered the door. She was pale with fright.  “I heard him chanting something over and over again in his bedroom,” she gasped. “So I crept to the door to listen. He was saying the Lord’s Prayer backwards!”  The pastor clutched his Bible to his chest, as goose bumps erupted over his body. This was positively satanic. And there was nowhere the boy could have learned such a thing in this town, unless he learned it . . . at school.
