Now available from Amazon.com
PREPUB ALERT! As part of Eerie Oklahoma's effort to preserve Oklahoma's history, Eerie Oklahoma and GHOULI have been working on a book of Oklahoma ghost stories, Urban Legends, and historical locations with strange or obscure history for the last several years and finally saw the fruits of their labor when the book was sent to the publisher in late 2008. It is set to be unveiled at the 2009 Paracon in El Reno in March at the historic Elks Lodge.

"Ghostlahoma" say the authors, " is the only book dedicated solely to Oklahoma ghost stories. The stories are told by the people that experienced them". From haunted hotels to disappearing hitch hikers, this book will thrill you and chill you as you read about Oklahoma's 100 years of haunted history. "We are currently working on a Ghostlahoma Travel Guide that will showcase public places you can visit to quench your thirst for your very own ghostly experience."

Armstrong's "Robin" Soars High


Oklahoma author Kenneth Shelby Armstrong presents a story of lyrical beauty, deeply felt emotion, thought provoking actions, and lasting inspiration. "Robin" is tale that begins in WW2. "On the shores of Lake Biwa near Kyoto, Japan a distinguished bishop laid his head in the lap of a lovely Japanese woman and died. His death opened a secret that he had held since he was a young soldier exploring the aftermath of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In some ways the secret was more destructive and dangerous than the atomic bombs that he knew so well."
