Maine has a rich supernatural history and ghost stories from the state are as varied as they are prolific. Freelance writer and reporter Tom Verde first became interested in such eerie occurrences while researching first-hand encounters with ghosts for a series of public radio programs. This book recounts some of the spine-tingling tales he uncovered in his research, including:The dagger-wielding shade who terrorized a Portland coupleThe murdered Indian who revisited Means's TavernFamed diva Lillian Nordica, whose voice still echoes through the Farmington auditorium named in her honorThe hostile spirit who tried to frighten the tenants out of an Orrington houseEven an entire phantom ship, bound eternally for FreeportThese are not fictitious creations of literary imagination. People from all walks of life-including many who were positive they would never believe in ghosts-attest to these encounters.

Here's what you say about us...

In the line of duty, award-winning journalist Tom Verde has attended a witch's Sabbath in Salem, Massachusetts, crawled into a hibernating bear's den in northern Maine, chased moonshiners across the backwoods of Virginia, been chased himself by Cape water buffalo in the South African sveld, tried to bribe his way into the forbidden chapel of the Ark of the Covenant in northern Ethiopia and trekked, solo, across the desert of Maine. He has journeyed throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the U.S. on assignment for public radio's former weekly travel show, The Savvy Traveler, as well as the New York Times, The Boston Globe, Copley News service, Marketplace and NPR's environmental show, Living on Earth. His work has also appeared in a host of national magazines, including Newsweek, Travel & Leisure, Reader's Digest, National Geographic Adventure, and Art News.

Tom Verde has updated his Maine Ghosts and Legends of 1989 with a new preface and four new reports from around the state and across time…Each chapter is well-researched and unbiased, citing references, interviews and the reporter's flair for the facts. Though not every question can be answered, the possibilities are there for all to see and decide-or not-on their own. A fun and informative read, to be sure!
