by John Hanford, Chuck Hocter, R.M. Kinder, James Henry Taylor, and Chanda K. Zimmerman
Ghosts and more are all around: sometimes friendly, sometimes frightening, but always fascinating!
Mischief during a sleepover, hauntings from Vietnam, dealings with the devil, horror on the fourth floor, unexpected comfort, and more – this collection of short fiction by members of the Blackwater Literary Society has something for everyone!
These fifteen thought-provoking supernatural tales are inspired by real-life experiences, speculative thoughts about the afterlife, residual hauntings, psychological trauma, as well as familial and animal bonds.

Join amateur sleuths Galway Evans and Letitia Dunbar in another music-laced mystery: Strains of Long Ago!
Galway is a lanky attorney-turned-handyman, desirous of being truly good at his new work. Letitia is a childless widow ~ petite, bowed, and fearless. Letitia remembers a long-ago day when a fellow student, Harold Wilson, climbed from an upstairs classroom window down a drainpipe. He was so nimble. “That was grand,” she tells Galway. “Just grand.”
Now Harold Wilson has been found dead in his storm cellar and Letitia can’t let it go.
Separated by more than a generation, Galway Evans and Letitia Dunbar share a sharp analytical ability, a love of people and kindness, and a deep respect and fondness for each other. They also share the corner of a Missouri small-town neighborhood, where mystery always finds them. In Strains of Long Ago, an unusual death entangles the two in a tale of love, music, and guilt.
Strains of Long Ago ~ Pbk 60 pages ~ August 2018 ~ ISBN 9780989503419 ~ $2.95
