John Robert Colombo, the author of the best-selling Colombo's Canadian Quotations and Fascinating Canada, has written, translated, or edited over two hundred books. He is the recipient of the Harbourfront Literary Prize and the Order of Canada, and is a Fellow of the Frye Centre.
Here are over 40 scary, hair-raising, and frightening stories of the supernatural and the paranormal. These are first-person narratives that are unexplained and possibly inexplicable. All of them have been reported to John Robert Colombo, Canada’s Master Gatherer of the Arcane, by men and women from various parts of the country, and they’re published here in the words of the informants themselves, the witnesses to these wonders.
Here, you will have the opportunity to read about:
- A woman from Ottawa who is visited nightly by her dead husband.
- A man from Quebec who is haunted by visions of the past.
- The couple from Regina, Saskatchewan, who commune with spirits through a Ouija board.
- The woman from Newcastle, Ontario, who finds the house of her dreams with a terrible secret.
