I am an idiot. I have been reading ghost stories all day which doesn't help a person who spooks easily and is already having trouble falling asleep before five in the morning. Despite that this book contains really neat places and stories. Many of them I knew about through oral history so it is nice to see them printed and have little arguments with myself about how if that is how the story was told or not. They have a website And I can't tear myself away.

It's funny last night at about 2:30 a.m. a moth bumped up against the window and I decided that it was the Mothman and that I need not look at the window, but calmly gather my knitting turn off the lights and go upstairs. Luckily today in this book I read about the Mothman and it is not in Montana.

Heh. I'm just catching up with your blog entries. Your talk of ghost stories brought back memories of dashing through haunted houses :)

There is a New England version of this book. It has stuff you'd really be interested in; like a rusted abandoned train in the middle of the woods in Maine, a twenty foot tall 'Queen Kong' holding a VW bug above it's head in Brandon, Vermont, and gravity hills in Leominster and Greenfield, MA. It's by the same people who wrote Weird U.S.
