Originally published as: Ghost stories of Texas. Waco, Texas: Texian Press, 1981.Come explore the shadow world of supernatural Texas with William Edward Syers
, one of the Southwest's premier storytellers, whose collection of the Lone Star State's fifty most intriguing tales consumed two full years of on-the-ground research. Originally published as Ghost Stories of Texas
, this out-of-print regional classic has been completely revised and updated for a new generation of readers.
Come encounter the "The Headless Horseman," "The Phantom on the Mountain," and "The Hounds of Orozimbo." Explore "Terror's Lake," the haunted "McDow Hole," and "Ghosty Branch." Venture within "The Gate" or "The Crypts of Old Waverly" or, for that matter, any of the other chilling tales. Supernatural Texas
was the first statewide exploration of dimensions beyond normal comprehension. Its content ranges from centuries-old legends to the here-and-now. You'll encounter specters whose motivations vary as widely as those of everyday folk--to save or warn, to disclose, to prove or disprove something long past, to do penance. And, of course, to seek vengeance!
These last are the things to avoid . . . except, of course, within the covers of this book.
Perhaps you can shrug them off. Perhaps you can discount all fifty awaiting you here.
Perhaps. But you won't forget them.
