San Francisco Ghosts is the only comprehensive account of true San Francisco hauntings. When thin, gray wisps of fog drift in from the bay and the mournful cry of a foghorn calls out from over the waves, San Francisco becomes the perfect setting for a ghost story. From the terrifying "House of the Howling Demons" and the deadly curse of Sutro Heights to California's earliest recorded love story and Mary Ellen Pleasant's "House of Mystery," San Francisco Ghosts relates not only the details of over one hundred true tales of ghostly manifestations but also the fascinating historical background behind the myriad of phantoms said to haunt a city which has, for so long, enchanted so many with its color, history and unique charm. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, San Francisco Ghosts will haunt your dreams for many nights to come!
