Georgetown County, located between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina, is steeped in tales of dynamic men and women who once lived and prospered here. Though these men and women have now passed away, many of their spirits still remain. There are rumored to be over a hundred ghosts in the area, making Georgetown County one of the nation's most haunted locations. Ghosts of Georgetown tells the stories of twenty of these apparitions. The ghosts in these tales range from the woman who died a horrible and tragic death on her wedding day, to the daughter of a former lighthouse keeper who warns sailors of impending storms, to the phantom choir whose voices can still be heard coming from the ruins of its former church. The stories tell of scorned lovers, innocent children, and wealthy plantation owners who have all returned to Georgetown long after their natural lives on earth were over. These tales weave the history of Georgetown's colorful past with the eerie spirits who roam the region in the present.

If you visit Pawleys Island, you may be greeted by a pair of friendly terriers frolicking at the edge of the ocean. If you find yourself at Wedgefield Plantation on a moonlit night, on the other hand, you may come face to face with a pistol-packing soldier amid the sound of hoofbeats and gunfire. You should feel neither welcomed nor threatened, however, for things are not always as they seem in Georgetown County, South Carolina. The Pawleys Island terriers and the British soldier of Wedgefield are merely a sampling of the ghosts that reside in one of America's most haunted places. Readers of the 19 stories in More Ghosts of Georgetown will hear moans from the sunken Union flagship Harvest Moon and the thump of a peg leg on an empty floor of the Rice Museum. They will see the lights of a long-lost schooner off Murrells Inlet and witness the agony of a Georgetown County hag as she wriggles out of her salt-soaked skin. From the Hanging Tree at Lambertown to the mysterious light of Lucas Bay, they will visit a place supernatural like no other.About the Author:
