Gothic and Strange True Tales of the South
Download Full Text
Explore the macabre and morbid aspects of history with this collection of real-life happenings focusing on all aspects of dying, from burial to haunting. Taken from actual newspaper articles, these narratives prove that death can be both grotesque and ridiculous. Accidents are never expected, but perhaps they could be prevented by a little common sense; for example, do not thaw frozen dynamite in a fire. Premeditated murders are atrocious in thought and deed, but even worse than that is killing to gain literary material. This ghastly compilation includes tales from Virginia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, and other Southern states.
