|Like many of us, Dickey is fascinated with the paranormal, especially ghosts and spirits. Dickey separates his book into four distinct parts, each containing specific places that are haunted: I. The Unhomely: houses and mansions, II. After Hours: bars, restaurants, hotels, and brothels, III. Civic-Minded Spirits: prisons, asylums, graveyards and cemeteries, a park, and IV. Useless Memories: cities and towns.|
This hefty volume contains details about each of the cases, where he separates common rumors and facts by those who actually live, work, or have first-hand experiences. This is one of my favorite reads this year due to how it was put together and the details it contained. While I was familiar with a couple of the cases he talked about, I still enjoyed the way he told them. If you like to read about ghosts, I highly recommend this work!
