Editorial Reviews

Review

This 22 chapter collection of ghostly yarns, which includes an essay of sources, an invaluable index, and a relevant travel guide, brings to life the many varied locations and ghosts that comprise a big chunk of Southern culture. Fitzhugh's "Ghostly Cries From Dixie," also featuring 19 illustrations, makes the reader a virtual visitor. Many entertaining hours can be spent pursuing the ghosts and notorious characters enticingly laid out by the author. --Southern Folklore Archivist Magazine, October 1, 2009

From the Author

I kept three objectives in mind while writing this book. The first was to intrigue, fascinate, and entertain people. That's right---to entertain! Although a great deal of research went into this book, it remains a storybook above all else.

My second objective was quality over quantity. Instead of stuffing this book with a multitude of short, watered-down stories to increase its page count, I cover fewer stories in more detail. This, I feel, gives the reader more insight into each story, which translates into more enjoyment. Longer stories provide a sense of depth and dimension, which is critical to the success of books about ghosts and the paranormal. Simply proclaiming, "Junior saw a ghost, wet his pants, and ran like hell," doesn't tell the reader much, does it?

My third objective was to strike a healthy balance between history and ghostlore. I have tried, wherever possible, to corroborate the stories with real events and historical data. As a historian--someone who studies history and shares their findings with others--I feel that striking such a balance helps the reader to develop a greater appreciation for history and the sense of validity it often adds to ghost stories.

I am dedicating this book to those who are intrigued, fascinated, and entertained by ghost stories. You are my audience--the people I write for, the people I run my websites for, the people I conduct my research for, and the people I enjoy meeting at my lecture and book signing events.
