Spooky Texas: Tales Of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, And Other Local Lore

We rated this book:


When your history is as bloody and adventurous as that of the Lone Star State, you’re bound to have some unsettled business bleeding into the world of the supernatural. Whether it’s witches, ghosts, dark magic, or hauntings, the state of Texas has seen it all and then some.

Spooky Texas collects the most evocative and unnerving supernatural urban legends, stories, anecdotes, and yarns spanning decades of Texas history. Some feel like campfire tales, while others evoke late-night stories swapped over a few drinks.

Although most of the stories are nothing a horror devotee hasn’t read before, the presentation is what separates this collection from the pack. The stories vary enough in style and narration to feel fresh, engaging, and worth your time. The somber tone makes even modern tales feel like local lore from long ago. Whether it involves stagecoaches or cars or messages by horse or smartphone, the creep factor remains the same.

Spooky Texas might not have you reaching for your nightlight, but it will have you reaching for the next page and the one after that.
