The twenty-one haunting tales in SOUTHERN SWAMPS AND RUINS by Fran Rizer and collaborator Richard D. Laudenslager along with one each by guest authors L. Michelle Cox, Jenifer Boone Lybrand, Nathan R. Rizer, Robert D. Simson, J. Michael Shell, and Two Ravens all take place in South Carolina.

These original stories were known only to the few brave souls who experienced them until shared in this collection.  Most of them are ghost stories though a few are a bit darker than the usual ghouls in fiction. Together, the authors deliver spine-chilling reads guaranteed to live in readers' dreams (and nightmares) long after the book is closed.

See descriptions of these mysteries by Fran Rizer on Books page.
