Big Book of New Jersey Ghost Stories, The


“Authors Martinelli and Stansfield have produced an entertaining collection of the Garden State’s historical and contemporary ghost tales, set in the region’s forests, villages, urban centers, and seaports. Particularly interesting are their stories spotlighting well-known historical figures—such as Thomas Edison, Aaron Burr, Blackbeard the Pirate and, of course, the infamous Jersey Devil. This enjoyable book is an artful blend of fine writing and thorough research.” –Ed Okonowicz, Author of The Big Book of Maryland Ghost Stories and Civil War Ghosts at Fort Delaware
