Officially listed as haunted by the Rhode Island Census, this dilapidated Foster factory gives up its secrets to New England’s resident ghost experts. On May 19, 1822, Peleg Walker was found dead inside Foster’s Ramtail Factory. Almost ten years earlier, he and four other family members had made the fateful decision to start a business. Legend has it that when relations soured over arguments about money, the partnership ended, with Peleg hanging from the very bell rope he rang each morning to signal the change in shift. Whether he took his own life or was murdered remains a mystery. Recognized as a haunted site since 1885, the factory now lies in ruins. Yet Peleg still keeps vigil over its remains, sounding his night watchman’s bell and drifting with his candle lantern in hand. Authors Tom D’Agostino and Arlene Nicholson share over two decades of research into the mysterious history of Rhode Island’s haunted factory. Includes photos! “Over the past twenty-five years, D’Agostino has explored scores of sites and produced several books on his adventures, including Haunted Rhode Island. When snooping for spooks, he and his wife, Arlene, carry a briefcase of high-tech gadgetry to document his findings.” —Rhode Island Monthly

I cannot say that I have like every ghost that I have met because in real experience there can be some very unpleasant ghosts. There many stories about faceless voices that speak for lonely people. Voices that come from nowhere that threaten, cajole, terrify or madden the people who hear them. Inferno had been described in gruesome and grisly and garish details by philosophers, writers and painters. However they are not the only ones who have a vision of the underworld. Inferno is an open book to all who choose to turn its pages. A coloring book that you may fill in yourself. And so many people have designed their own private hell filled with their very own private devils and demons. Many people have discovered that you don't have to die in order to live there although it helps. "Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown that terror becomes the known. "Antoine de Saint-Exupery . “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” - HP Lovecraft . WARNING: Do not read this book alone. And make sure that you are reading in a well-lighted area. The entities that are associated with this book might interact with you.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. These facts few psychologists will dispute, and their admitted truth must establish for all time the genuineness and dignity of the weirdly horrible tale as a literary form… As may naturally be expected of a form so closely connected with primal emotion, the horror-tale is as old as human thought and speech themselves. H. P. Lovecraft Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Prevalent elements include ghosts, demons, vampires, werewolves, ghouls, the Devil, witches, monsters, dystopian and apocalyptic worlds, serial killers, cannibalism, psychopaths, cults, dark magic, Satanism, the macabre, gore, and torture.

Cape Cod has a rich tradition of local lore, stretching back to a time before the Pilgrims arrived. Ancient Wampanoag legends like Granny Squannit and Princess Scargo are as familiar as tales of pirates and explorers, including “Black Sam” Bellamy and Donald Baxter Macmillan. Felines often blocked “Cat’s Alley” in pursuit of food from fishermen’s boats. The remnants of Billingsgate Island can be seen at low tide, and visits from Jenny Lind and Helen Keller contrast with the mysterious stories of the “Lady of the Dunes” and New England’s Dark Day. Author Robin Smith-Johnson shares historic tales of shipwrecks, murders, hauntings and more from the Cape.
