Ghost stories and legends are things everyone can enjoy, whether seated around a camp fire, or curled up on your couch at home.
And according to some, West Virginia is a place where those legends are in great supply. In fact a new book of ghost stories from the state has been nominated for a Bram Stoker award-- which is the highest award given to books in the horror and mystery genre.
Michael Knost is the editor of the book, called "Legends of the Mountain State: Ghostly Tales From The State Of West Virginia". Mr. Knost, who is a Logan native, was at Border's Bookstore in Huntington Saturday to sign autographs.
He said the book is a tribute to the story telling traditions of West Virginia, since all of the stories are based on legends from the area. The book should be available at bookstores across the area.
