“Arthur O’ Bower has broken his band…” So goes the archaic rime that both recorded and heralded a power that Scotland will succumb under, unless it’s for Gary Leightston, who holds a divinely-powered artifact…or perhaps something subtler, that the Old Country can use to defend itself against the literally hellishly-blowing, Armageddon-force gale of the wraith Arthur…but what? Leightston holds his doubts about the British Government soliciting his assistance to destroy such a windy super-ghost, although he soon learns it’s him that the blustery, living hell-force wishes to kill most of all…or at least manipulate into an ally, one way or another. Soon, it comes all down to a ritual to duel in power with the monster of the Bower, and the authorities that wish to save their land might just have no choice but to accept that the great and terrible Arthur O’ The Bower is a force nothing and nobody can stop.

From the author of ‘Audrey Rose’. Based on a real life case of a woman preyed upon by a spectral rapist.

Note: The book and movie were both very creepy. IF this really happened to this young woman, the unknown world around us is even more scary than I thought!

This genre wouldn’t seem complete without including one of the books from this popular TV show.

Twenty-two years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. In the years after, their father, John, taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it.

Sam and Dean have hit New York City to check out a local rocker’s haunted house. But before they can figure out why a lovesick banshee in an ’80s heavy-metal T-shirt is wailing in the bedroom, a far more macabre crime catches their attention. Not far from the house, two university students were beaten to death by a strange assailant. A murder that’s bizarre even by New York City standards, it’s the latest in a line of killings that the brothers soon suspect are based on the creepy stories of legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe.

Their investigation leads them to the center of one of Poe’s horror classics, face-to-face with their most terrifying foe yet. And if Sam and Dean don’t rewrite the ending of this chilling tale, a grisly serial killer will end their lives forevermore.
