Legends of the Mountain State 2

After putting together this anthology's predecessor, Legends of the Mountain State: Ghostly Tales from the State of West Virginia, editor Michael Knost realized he had barely scratched the surface with Mountain State folklore. The first time around, thirteen extraordinary authors contributed horrifying tales that left everyone goosebumped and scared of the dark. After seeing great success with the project, Woodland Press, publishers of the first edition, asked Knost to put together a second edition - one that focused on thirteen additional ghost stories and mountain legends. The new project, which is arguably scarier than its predecessor, embodies the same tone and texture of its forerunner, with 13 nationally known authors and storytellers. According to Knost, this new volume offers fresh meat to those who devoured the stories in the first volume.

Features Brian's story, "An Angel in the Balcony".
