Find creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, strange occurrences in ‘Spooky Indiana’

TERRE HAUTE — Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings and other strange occurrences in the Hoosier State with “Spooky Indiana: Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore,” retold by S.E. Schlosser and illustrated by Paul G. Hoffman.

Whether read around the campfire on a dark and stormy night or from the back seat of the family van on the way to grandma’s, this is a collection to treasure.

Unlike many ghost story collections, “Spooky Indiana” features stories not altered by the author. Rather, these chilling stories speak for themselves. It is also a collection that encompasses ghost stories from cities all over the state, including the tales of Stiffy Green in Terre Haute and Ossian in Greencastle.

Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of “let’s pretend” quickly built themselves into full-length stories. A graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature and Rutgers University, she also created and maintains the website AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all 50 states, some dating back to the origins of America.

Hoffman trained in painting and printmaking, with his first extensive illustration work on assignment in Egypt, drawing ancient wall reliefs for the University of Chicago. His work graces books of many genres — children’s titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes and numerous cookbooks.
