Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Maritime Provinces boast sandy beaches, rocky shores, quaint seaside villages, and sleepy small towns. However, there’s more to these isolated villages and seemingly quiet communities than you might think.

Some of the members of the Evergreen Writers group have crafted this collection of ghost stories from the not-so-scary to the shivery-spooky, Though several stories are based on real events in real places, others are purely fictional. These stories will open your eyes and cause you look over your shoulder. Our ghost, spectres, and wraiths are a benevolent lot- at least most of them! But you may want to leave the light on…

I was impressed … All the stories were well written and very interesting. Some will raise the hair on the back of your neck, others are just plain enjoyable. I recommend this book.

Article by Jacqueline Warlow in the Chronicle Herald

A Halloween treat

… Its first attraction is the eerily beautiful cover… a startlingly inviting picture of weathered tombstones and green turf enshrouded by deep grey encroaching mist. Aptly named Out of the Mist: 22 Atlantic Canadian Ghost Stories, the book is both visually appealing and a very good read. The authors have a Maritimer’s knowledge of geography, that sense of place which is central to our identity; a familiarity with the siren call of the sea; and an Atlantic Canadian love of a good yarn well told. …There is definitely an opportunity in all the stories for the reader to suspend disbelief for awhile.
