Description

Horror Guide to Northern New England is a map to geographical locations, real and fictional, utilized in horror tales and films set in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. And just for good measure, they've included some true stories and events that should be horror stories or at least the inspiration for future ones. Sea serpents, ancient sacrificial tables, Barnabas Collins, Stephen King, Rick Hautala, and Shirley Jackson all call the area home - small wonder that the weird and horrific find sanctuary the shadow-choked forests, decrepit doomed villages, and fog-shrouded mountains of Northern New England. Join the brothers Goudsward as they offer the latest volume of their Horror Guides. ADVANCED PRAISE FOR HORROR GUIDE TO NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND "David and Scott Goudsward's book is a gem. ... crammed full of stuff you never knew and probably seldom thought about. It is a book about the places fictional horror happened. It is also a book about the places real horror happened. Real places. Places you can get to in the car. And along with the geography, there is a history about these stories. Yes, this is a book for fans of the horror genre. But it is also a book for writers and researchers and students and people who just love this place. What fun." - Fritz Wetherbee, historian, writer, iconic television host ..". shines a spotlight on the darkest, creepiest corners of Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire --- states that harbor mysteries, curses, and locations for some of the spookiest, weirdest tales in the U.S. This encyclopedic guide is endlessly entertaining and bursting with surprising macabre tidbits from some of the oldest parts of our country." - Izzy Lee, writer, director, producer of RITES OF VENGEANCE, INNSMOUTH, and POSTPARTUM ..". a perfect horrorscape of New England's North Country, guiding you to a delightful assortment of shunned places, dark destinations, and frightening facts. Every page is brimming with a who's who or a what's what of Yankee marvels and menace -- history, literary and movie trivia, and things that man was never meant for to know. I am certain this would have been in Lovecraft's library. It's an essential addition to my own. " - Joseph A. Citro, author of SHADOW CHILD and PASSING STRANGE, TRUE TALES OF NEW ENGLAND HAUNTINGS AND HORRORS "What I like most about Dave and Scott Goudsward's Horror Guide series is that while they are informative and involved, they are - unlike many reference works - a lot of fun to read and easy to navigate. The newest installment, HORROR GUIDE TO NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND: MAINE, NEW HAMPSHIRE, AND VERMONT (HGNNE) is, like its Massachusetts and Florida companion editions, an extensive and intensive display of research from the Goudsward brothers. It is especially sweet for me because I was born and raised in New Hampshire and had lived there for forty years, until 2002. I had spent my formative years traipsing between the three states that are the focus of this book and recognized many of the towns, sites, and sights covered within these pages. But you don't have to be native to these states to enjoy this book...or its predecessors. For horror fans, non-horror fans, writers, researchers, or joy readers, HGNNE (and its companions) are a valuable and enjoyable guide and reference of all things fact and fictional related to horror (or spooky for the more sensitive reader), from the renowned to the obscure. It takes you on an alphabetical tour through each state, geographically correlating each town and site (both real and fictional) to works of popular fiction. As one would guess, the Maine section is loaded with Stephen King and Rick Hautala mentions, but for me - having read most of their works - it was a nostalgic trip that made me yearn to read these stories again. Thank you, Dave and Scott, for another fine Guide...now how about New York...or D.C.?" - John McIlveen - award-winning author of HANNAHWHERE
