The putrid estuaries of the Great Dismal Swamp and the colonial mansions of Tidewater Virginia provide a chilling setting for tales of the mysterious and strange. From the ghost of Jefferson Davis's iron-willed widow who walks the dank corridors of Fort Monroe to the restless presence of Cornwallis's soldiers killed at the Battle of Yorktown, the region is rife with eerie tales of the tragic and unexplained. Paranormal expert and author L.B. Taylor Jr. revisits classic ghost stories from his collection and introduces readers to thirteen terrifying new tales. Join Taylor as he travels forgotten country lanes and dark waterways in search of the spirits of Virginia's haunted shores.

L.B. Taylor Jr. is a native Virginian. He was born in Lynchburg and has a BS degree in journalism from Florida State University. He wrote about America's space programs for sixteen years—for NASA and aerospace contractors—before moving to Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1974 to work as public affairs director for BASF Corporation. He retired in 1993. Taylor is the author of more than three hundred national magazine articles and forty-five nonfiction books. His research for the book Haunted Houses, published by Simon and Schuster in 1983, stimulated his interest in area psychic phenomena and led to the publication of twenty-three books on Virginia ghosts. In 2007, he was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Virginia Writers' Club.
