Welcome to Cedar Hill, Ohio, a deceptively commonplace bordertown between the familiar everyday and the phantasms, fancies, hauntings, and enchantments that wait in dimly-lit places for a chance to pass through the scrim of perception & make this place their home, as well. Those who live here don't really have any choice and neither will you. Cedar Hill: "Main Street" ...more

30 stories in all, divided into 5 sections – Graveyard people, To Rest at Last, hangman’s Blues, Coffin County, and Matters of Family –complete with a visitor’s guide, this book i
