Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole
You have to love an author that takes the whole family fun, wholesome image of Disney World and twists it into something spooky and malevolent.
I first came across Ms. Schoonover’s writing in Morpheus Tales Undead Issue with her story “Ghost Light”. One of the highlights of that issue for me.
She continues her ghostly magic with a new set of tales set in America’s favorite theme park, and this book is spooky alchemy at its finest.
If you are a lover of ghost stories as I am, you will need to add this collection of tales to your library of haunted tales.
I enjoyed all of the stories, her characterizations were believable and fresh. The stories are atmospheric and eerie.
Charlotte’s Family Tree and Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole stood out above the rest though. I am sure you will find a couple of favorites amongst this group of tales.
Now that I have experienced Ms. Schoonover’s ghostly writings I will be keeping my eyes open for more otherworldly terrors from a writer who gets ghost stories right.
