The Spooky Series by S.E. Schlosser

What People are Saying About the Spooky Series...

"If you have ever felt a chill as you walked past a Vermont graveyard, or felt an unseen hand brush against you on a mountain in Maine, you will love Spooky New England. And if you don't believe in ghosts--you will."
- Michael Carlton, Editor, Yankee Magazine
"Spooky New England is one of those books that you cannot put down until you reach the end...This is the ideal book for curling on the couch on a rainy afternoon and enjoying an entertaining read."
- Rambles: A Cultural Arts Magazine
"The author lets the stories speak for themselves which is virtue not possessed by many folklore books... "
- Dennis Phillips, Top 1000 Reviewer,
"If preparations for Halloween have put you in an eerie frame of mind, S.E. Schlosser has the perfect book for you..."
- Donna McCrohan Rosenthal, Ridge Writers
"If you've not yet seen North Country specters slinking about cemeteries and creaky old homes, now you can … "
"The great thing about this book is that, like most folklore, it seems like you’ve read or heard most of the stories before. They exist in the periphery of our memory, and reading them again is like coming home to hear familiar stories from a favorite grandmother..."
- Matt Staggs,
"...Every page in this book (Spooky Virginia) was a welcome return to the kind of ghost story I like best--haunting tales of things gone wrong, cruelty repaid, and horrors revisited again and again."
- Rob McMonigal, The Book Stew
"S.E. Schlosser is a well-known author of "Spooky" books, and (Spooky Campfire Tales) is one of her best! The stories are excellent for any Cub Scout outing, being quite scary and relatively short... These stories are great, really hitting the target with listeners of any age."
- Kurt A. Johnson, Amazon Hall of Fame Review, Vine Voice.
"...Ghosts, ghouls, pirates and the devil abound in the legends of Maryland. Schlosser's ability to invent and craft an engaging short story around a fantastic legend, no matter how implausible, is a refreshing way of looking at legend and lore. Lovers of both history and a well-told tale will enjoy this interesting collection...If you enjoy a tale born solely of legend and lore and crafted by a master raconteur, you'll find it here."
- Lee Lukaszewicz,
"Schlosser retells her tales with an easy narrative touch, whether sending a chill down your spine or making you nod appreciatively. She sees the scary, tragic and even occasionally comic in situations such as a disbeliever’s encounter with Sasquatch and a prisoner’s attempt to strike a bargain with the devil by offering his wife in exchange for freedom." (Spooky California.)
- D.M. Rosenthal, Ridge Writers News Review Columnist.
