This ghost story collection, written by Tim Tingle and Doc Moore, was released by Texas Tech University Press in May of 2003. Storytelling World Magazine selected TGS as Best Anthology for 2004. Introduced by John O. West and John L. Davis, two of Texas’ most respected folklorists, the stories include tales adapted by European settlers to their new southwestern settings.
Some humorous, some haunting, and some just late-night terrifying, these stories, gathered by two favorite Texas tellers, span a rich cultural heritage from the earliest Spanish explorers to the present, from La Llorona (the Weeping Woman) to the vanishing hitchhiker.
