Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971663882, Paperback)For a the past fifteen years, authors have assembled at the spooky Oregon Coast to write ghost stories and read them by candlelight in a hopefully-haunted boathouse. The agenda for the annual event is simple: Write a ghost story during the weekend. Naturally, the topic of conversation runs to the universal mysteries, as well as to the confession of fears. Each writer must be creative on demand, and invoke those thoughts, feelings, speculations and spirits that combine to make a good story. And in the end—though many refuse to believe it upon arrival—everybody completes a ghost story by sundown. Every writer there learns something new about his/herself in the process. In this long-anticipated follow-up to Dead on Demand: The Best of Ghost Story Weekend, you will read what scares these writers. There will be something in these pages for everybody, from the retooled urban legend to the sweetly sentimental to the horrific. We have haunted waterfalls, haunted convents, haunted retirement homes, haunted houses, haunted train tracks, haunted carnival rides, haunted slot machines, and to be sure, haunted graveyards. Contributing authors include Rupert Hughes Award winner Christina Lay, novelist Elizabeth Engstrom, Writers of the Future award winner Stephen R. Stanley, and many more, ably edited by Dianna Rodgers, and suitable for readers of all ages. So light a candle, cozy down and get ready to explore the depths of your own ideas of death, and beyond.
