Description

If you are looking for traditional, stereotyped ghost stories, this is not the book for you. You won't find any cliched, chain-rattling ghosts roaming castle ruins in Tom Slemen's Haunted Cheshire, nor will you encounter any of the regurgitated Cheshire legends which pad out so many books on supernatural folklore. Within this volume Tom Slemen has brought together a fascinating and thought-provoking collection of stories from his extensive files on the paranormal. During the research for his previous books on the ghosts of Merseyside, which resulted in the Haunted Liverpool series, he accumulated a wealth of material concerning the county of Cheshire. Most of the stories came from Cheshire people who heard Tom's spot on several local radio stations. Cheshire listeners bombarded Tom by telephone, letters, faxes and e-mail, with intriguing tales of ghostly hitchhikers, doppelgangers, curses, angels, time-warps, banshees, vampires, witches, warlocks, and spine-chilling premonitions. The response was phenomenal and quite unexpected. In Haunted Cheshire, you can read about the voodoo curse of the bus driver from Poynton, the Winsford vampire, the mummified lady from Hollinwood and many more chilling tales of ghosts, poltergeists and strange happenings from around the most haunted county in England.show more
