Spooky Oregon

Spooky OregonTales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings and Other Local Lore

retold by S.E. Schlosser

       Don’t be silly, she told herself, forcing her shaking legs up another step.  It’s just the loose shutter blowing in the wind.  And then all the hair on the back of her neck stood on end as she realized she could hear something breathing behind her…

       Meet Muriel, who learns too late that you shouldn't mess around in haunted houses.  Muriel is just one of many spooky characters who roam the pages of Spooky Oregon.  You will also meet a white witch who conquers an ancient evil spirit that  lives at her university; a killer sasquatch who wrecks vengeance on the men tresspassing on its sacred ground; the Bandage Man of Cannon Beach; and many others.  Great for reading around the campire, for Halloween, or anytime!
