Cabrini Green was a group of buildings in Chicago that has now been torn down. My friend Carmella Smith grew up there. Her descriptions of it are always evocative of crime, filth, sin, and terrible pests such as cockroaches, rats, and even snakes, though I think that last one was merely hyperbole. The hardest part about being her editor is the task of keeping her unique literary voice. She has a deep urban Chicago accent, and her word choices are always interesting.Unlike her previous book, this is a work of total fiction, inspired by the Halloween season. Be forewarned, it is a tale of tawdry sex, murder, and strange witchcraft. It is not exactly comfortable to read, but it is very interesting. The thing I like most about this work is that it brings a new voice to a genre (urban fantasy) that really is different than the more famous works of people like Laurel K. Hamilton or Jim Butcher, both of which have for lack of a better word are ‘white/Caucasian feel. This book is different. The urban vernacular is at times totally clear in its presentation of the material while at other times vaguely alluding to gang life and the terrible secrets held in the now destroyed project of Cabrini Green.

Fightback, when the zombies’ intelligence is increasing and they have formed themselves into a society, and an army.

And how does the mysterious New World Pharmaceuticals fit into the New Zombie Order?
A terrifying exploration of “the most historic haunted cemetery in the Chicagoland area, and most likely one of the most known in the world” (Chicago Now)! Slumbering beneath a shroud of deep forest and deliberate secrecy, Bachelors Grove Cemetery still exerts a powerful pull on paranormal pilgrims and curiosity-seekers around the world. Shielding the orphaned burial ground from ritual and idle vandalism has also buried the rich history of this magical place. Still, its eerie presence has dominated the folklore of the southwest side of Chicago for every generation since 1838. Brave the woods with Ursula Bielski to unearth decades of mysteries and myriad ghost stories, from the Magic House to the Madonna of Bachelors Grove. Includes photos! “Historian and paranormal investigator Ursula Bielski says Bachelors Grove, a cemetery located on the edge of Rubio Woods in Midlothian, is among the most haunted places in the world. Her book . . . is the culmination of years of research at the site.” —Chicago Tribune “Bielski ascribes the site’s high level of activity to ‘an ancient force, something malevolent,’ as well as a spate of occult activity in the ’60s and ’70s that may have involved unsettling practices like animal sacrifice and grave desecration...
Discover the history of this Wisconsin county known for shipwrecks—and spirits . . . photos included! Because Door County received its name from “Death’s Door,” the perilous strait with more freshwater shipwrecks than anywhere else in the world, it should be no surprise that the idyllic county has plenty of ghostly history. In the company of storyteller Gayle Soucek, meet lighthouse keepers whose sense of duty extends beyond the grave. Catch a glimpse of the phantom ship Le Griffon, never seen for more than a moment since it sailed through a crack in the ice in 1679. And it is not just the waters of Door County that carry the freight of haunted tales—Country Road T has its share of spooks, bizarre beasts have caused disturbances in the woods, and there are whispered rumors that infamous gangster Al Capone added to the county's stock of ghosts through a handful of brutal murders, including an ex-girlfriend and two unacknowledged children . . .
