The Midnight Hour
The Midnight Hour is amazing, amusing, and frightening. It will make you pause to wonder - about ghosts and spirits, fate and destiny, strange beasts and even stranger human beings. The accounts within describe encounters in Canada with monsters and mysteries from 1784 to the present. Editor and anthologist John Robert Colombo derived these true tales from nineteenth-century newspapers, personal correspondence, e-mails, interviews, and more. The collection is certain to entertain you … especially during "the midnight hour"!
"Columbo takes his customary value-added approach in The Midnight Hour...any reader who agrees to suspend the reality question will have a fine time combing through the many tales...." -Paul Challen, Quill & Quire, April 1, 2004
