Spooky and entertaining

I really enjoyed reading this book. It provided not only the entertainment of being spooked, when reading in a dark room, with only a light bright enough to read the pages, however it also provided a great deal of historical information about the area/house/building/etc. that is believed to be haunted. The author writes about haunted locations that she's actually experienced. However, the majority of the book is written about the experiences of others. I think you'll truly enjoy this book, I'm planning on purchasing the author's book about hauntings in the Gulf Coast Region of Texas - a little closer to home!

Exciting and very interesting

Living in Texas made this book much more exciting for me, however, I think it will interest others outside of the Lone Star State as well. The book gives as much detail as possible, while telling the stories that were told to the author. There are some pictures, and those in the San Antonio area should be able to locate many of the locations with just the information in the book. The historical information, including the information about who the ghosts are believed to be at each location, add even more excitement to this already mysterious and intriguing topic. Do I believe in ghosts? I don't think so, but it's still fun to read about others imagination - or maybe their experiences ---- how would I know? Nevertheless, give it a try - especially if you are in Texas - and most definitely if you are in or near San Antonio! I think you'll enjoy it!


This is a very informitive book. I love the stories about the railroad tracks. I loved it so much that before I moved away from San Antonio I just had to try it out.

Two ghoulish thumbs ups.

An exciting and intriguing novel highlighting the extraordinary and unexplainable happenings within San Antonio. From walking spirits to haunted landmarks, the novel details the exciting myths and facts of San Antonio without trying to solve the mystery behind the stories.
