Maine has a rich supernatural history and ghost stories from the state are as varied as they are prolific. Freelance writer and reporter Tom Verde first became interested in such eerie occurrences while researching first-hand encounters with ghosts for a series of public radio programs. This book recounts some of the spine-tingling tales he uncovered in his research, including: The dagger-wielding shade who terrorized a Portland couple The murdered Indian who revisited Means’s Tavern Famed diva Lillian Nordica, whose voice still echoes through the Farmington auditorium named in her honor The hostile spirit who tried to frighten the tenants out of an Orrington house Even an entire phantom ship, bound eternally for Freeport These are not ficticious creations of literary imagination. People from all walks of life—including many who were positive they would never believe in ghosts—attest to these encounters.
