Campfire Stories Series
This collection is inspired by the tales that would be told around a campfire.
As editor Deborah L. Downer writes in the preface of her 1990 book "Classic American Ghost Stories" (August House Publishing):
Even in our denial, we retain our awe of the supernatural, relishing our tales of risen spirits, haunted places, and cursed lands. Perhaps it is only natural for us mortals to create illusions around the things that scare us most, so that in confronting our fears, we overcome them.
