Paranormal 101: Haunted Michigan

In this monthly segment, I will provide a list of books I think anyone interested in folklore, ghost stories, the unusual & the paranormal would enjoy. Most of these can be found on Amazon.com (often at discounted rates) or at your local library. Each list of books will be arranged by topic and will be accompanied by a short description highlighting some themes and commonalities. Enjoy!

In comparison to its neighboring states, Michigan has come late to the table in terms of literature on its folklore and ghost stories. Most books on Michigan ghost stories seem to have been published after 2005. Even so, there have been quite a few in that short period of time. The diversity of authors on this subject means that each one brings something unique to the table, and readers of these books can be assured that each holds some surprises. Haunted lighthouses, islands, ships, and lakes are just a few of the places you will encounter. One thing I found lacking were tales from Detroit, which I’m sure is a very haunted city.
