Titles By Roma Gray
You won’t find the place on any map. It’s somewhere else, hidden away in a wondrous parallel reality of mystery, awe and terror.
This both is and isn’t the “Old West.” They share the same stark and unforgiving terrain and exist in the same timeframe, primarily the 1800s. The people are generally the same hardy lot that left eastern society for reasons spread as wide as the open spaces they sought.
But there the similarities cease. In Spirit County, for example, death is often not the end but the beginning. Sometimes even the middle. Mythological creatures prove real...and deadly. Towns can disappear by daylight and return with the setting sun. And in that dark and turbulent dreamscape, where the rational mind can wind up gunned down in the street by its own fearful denial, there you will find that indeed there are frontiers far beyond the edge of not just human society but human comprehension.
In Welcome to Spirit County, six writers take their shot and then pass the revolver, each aiming to punch a hole through the veil of the senses to a different and staggering reality. Mount up and follow them if you dare.

Black Water by Roma Gray: Mike has a very unusual phobia: He’s terrified of Champ, the creature reported to be living in Lake Champlain. Ever since he was a child, he has been haunted by nightmares about the monster and has avoided the lake most of his life. It’s a ridiculous fear, for the creature couldn’t possibly exist, could it? Tonight, whether he wants to or not, Mike will finally discover the truth about the lake and its legendary inhabitant.

Last Summer at Camp Blackhawk by John Bruni
It's the last summer at Camp Blackhawk because the camp is going the way of much of the world; that is, it's been bought by a land developer and it's going to be turned into more housing for the burgeoning human populace. But that unscrupulous developer has already moved in by fouling the camp's lake with extremely toxic chemicals that have transmuted the place's fauna into monstrous and deadly new forms. The teens and preteens who've come to spend one last summer there are in for it as the mutated wildlife shows itself in a horrific assault on anything that moves.

Ghost stories had a much greater impact and significance a hundred years ago. Someone would tell a ghost story on Christmas, and you would ride home in a carriage to the thudding of horse hooves and the creaking of brittle wheels with that bone-chilling tale haunting your thoughts even before you got home and safely into bed...where they became nightmares. It was a different world back then.
But that was then, a century ago or more. So why do they still have a hold on us now? Is it possible it is more than that?
Two ghost fiction authors, Kevin Candela (author of the Ghost Phone novella series and the novel Ghost Hunter) and Roma Gray (author of A Haunting at the Gates of Hell and Extreme Hauntings: Postcards from Hell), decided to get together and explore this genre from two different perspectives. Their findings surprised even them.
Enjoy these tales from the greats of long ago and may their spirits shine on and light the darkness.
