Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spooky! When I picked up this book, I was expecting the usual collection of lame stories intended to catch the interest of tourists. Boy, was I wrong! This book was really intense, and even scarier because the stories take place so close to home. A must-read for any Albertan who loves a good scare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night Lights are a must have.... Human behavior has always been that we take delight in the grotesque and scary, it is at this peak while reading this spine tingling novel. I could not put it down from the minute I started reading and after words several of my friends wished to borrow it. I stayed awake the entire night, as I could not stop...all the while (mind you) with my bed light on. Very scary! A great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't read this at night... Reading these stories of things that go bump in the night locally is great fun. There is a number of tales in the collection that will raise the hair on your arms and make you glance round the room over the top of the book to make sure you're still alone. The writing style is along the lines of a news article so it's relatively easy to put the book down at the end of a story but you'll come back to it soon enough for another 'fix' of shivers. Well worth buying for your bookshelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spine-tingling Spooks! This book is an excellent ghost story book. For someone who lives in alberta it will be an interesting read to find out what resident ghosts are surrounding your area of the province. Many of the stories take place in Edmonton or Calgary, but there are a few that take place elsewhere. Great to read by a campfire to chill everyone to the bone. I think this is a book that is very well written and organized. Not to forget the stories are much more interesting than the ones that are of fake junk. It will captivate you from the moment you start to read and is one of those books you just CANNOT put down!
