In Mariah of the and Other Southern Ghost Stories, Sherry Austin brings you tales from the Appalachian mountains, the Carolina coasts, the hills of the Shenandoah, and at least one haunted shop in New Orleans. There are bewildered spirits, a venge- ful spa-it, a gentle ghostly guide to the other side, dark kudzu covered hills surrounding a foreboding old home, a mountainside graveyard with inhabitants who are not exactly resting in peace, and one ghostly hitchhiker to send goose- bumps running wildly up and down your spine. Louisville's Thomas Lee Freeze has at least three books on the non- fiction shelves. Strang e and Wonderful Things - A Collection of Ghost Stories with Special Appearances by Witches and Other Bi- zarre Creatures is, say the publishers, "suitable for children and adults and provides suspense, ghostly intrigue, life les- sons and pleasurable en- tertainment." Chapters include The Witch's Rake; The Healing Child; Mov- ing Graves; and Whispers.

These, say the publishers, make up "a unique pan- orama of paranormal and spiritual incidences laid out by ordinary folks who hap- pen to live in haunted hous- es, come up to the edge of spLritual realities, and are blest to encounter angels." Among thom, youql find, Flapping Curtain with No Breeze; Weird Photos; The Bell Witch Cave; Lexington Ghosts; Historic Haunts; House Built Over Indian Battle Ground; White- Robed EMT; and Guarding the Door to the Afterlife. Turn from tales told as true, to the young adult section where unbounded imagination rules supreme in books like Zombies Vs Unicorns which, obviously, presents two mythical sides for your consideration, and leaves you to decide which you prefer, Team Zombie or Team Unicorn. It's hard to imagine you'd have to make a choice between those two, but apparently some people think zombies are appealing.
