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 the New Orleans skies.

The Big Easy is the kingdom of the strange, scary and gothic and this volume of ghost stories does not disappoint. You will encounter the Pirate’s Ghost, the Zombie, La Mason Mal, the Casquette Girls and the Loup Garou, as well as many other supernatural beings and strange happenings.

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.

Everywhere I looked, I saw hand-carved trim and lavish use of faux wood-grain painting. Everywhere I walked, I sensed an invisible man with a cigar wandering around the rooms…
