Katherine Duane is an editor and writer who lives in Berkeley. She successfully avoided ghosts and the undead for many years, until she inherited 40 acres of worthless homestead land and was forced to come to terms with its only other inhabitant, a spectral Basque shepherd.
The thinking outdoorsman's handbook to the heebie-jeebies, this second volume of our Campfire Collection offers up terrifying tales sure to make the sturdiest of campers run for the hills. Perfect to read out loud around a fire or in the comfort (and relative safety) of a cozy armchair, Ghosts, Beasts, and Things That Go Bump in the Night includes both fact and fiction, capturing the dark side of the great outdoors. From Paul Bowles's Allal to H.G. Wells's The Valley of the Spiders, these stories cause pulses to quicken and palms to sweat. Designed with rounded corners, a durable cover, and large type for easy reading by campfire or flashlight, it's a rugged companion, trail-ready for any excursion.
