The 28 “true tales of terror” selected for the fourth installment of the popular “Haunted Canada” series will take readers to some of Canada’s creepiest corners, from British Columbia to Newfoundland and north to the Territories.

Readers will visit the “Hospital of the Dead” in Inglewood, Alberta, the “Tombs of Hell” in Kingston, Ontario, and the “Valley of the Headless Men” in the Northwest Territories’ Nahanni National Park Reserve. In Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, readers will meet the ghostly “lady in blue” and in Quebec City, the malicious spirit of Marie-Josephte Corriveau, whose body was displayed in a metal cage after her hanging in 1763 to warn townspeople against murder.

There’s even a ghost at Toronto’s Hockey Hall of Fame where, among the displays about famous players such as Wayne Gretzky and Maurice Richard, is a resident ghost who occasionally glides out from one of the walls - only to disappear a few seconds later.

The abandoned town of Tranquille, British Columbia is especially eerie these days. Once the site of a large tuberculosis sanatorium, Tranquille is not only haunted above the ground, but the nearly two kilometres of underground tunnels are also haunted!

As the book’s publisher notes, these chilling tales will surely have readers sleeping with the lights on!
