p. cm. - (Made in Michigan writers series). The ghosts either inhabited these places or were desperately trying to get back to them. And we lived in Michigan, so many of our ghostly references were entirely local. We knew of a house on the west side of Ann Arbor that seemed to carry a horrible history and, possibly, the ghosts of dead children.

as James Hynes, Nicholas Delbanco, Elizabeth Kostova (author of The Historian), and others. The stories are all readable but only a few are very dark and the best of those are by Steve Amick, James Hynes, and Anne-Marie Oomen. There were two issues out in 2011, and each included pieces of fiction in addition to scholarly essays and discussions of Jamesian work.

For Ghost Writers: Us Haunting Them editors Keith Taylor and Laura Kasischke asked twelve celebrated Michigan writers to submit new stories on one subject: ghosts. The resulting collection is a satisfying mix of tales by some of the state's most well-known and award-winning writers. Some of the pieces are true stories written by non-believers, while others are clearly fiction and can be funny, bittersweet, spooky, or sinister. All share Michigan as a setting, bringing history and a sense of place to the eerie collection.

Ghosts in these stories have a wide range of motivations and cause a variety of consequences. In some cases, they seem to dwell in one person's consciousness, as in Steve Amick's "Not Even Lions and Tigers," and other times they demonstrate their presence with tangible evidence, as in Laura Hulthen Thomas's "Bones on Bois Blanc." Spirits sometimes appear in order to communicate something important to the living, as in James Hynes's "Backseat Driver" and Lolita Hernandez's "Making Bakes," to change the course of events, as in Anne-Marie Oomen's "Bitchathane," or to cause characters to look inside themselves, as in Elizabeth Schmuhl's "Belief." The supernatural stories in Ghost Writers visit a mix of Michigan locations, from the urban, to the suburban, and rural. Authors find ghosts in family farmhouses, downtown Detroit streets, an abandoned northern Michigan lighthouse, gracious Grosse Pointe homes, a mid-Michigan apartment complex, and the crypt of a Polish priest in the small town of Cross Village.

Taylor and Kasischke have assembled a collection with a diverse mixture of settings, tones, and styles, ensuring that Ghost Writers will appeal to all readers of fiction, particularly those interested in the newest offerings from Michigan's best fiction writers.

I was very disapponted in this book. There are quite a few great writers from Michigan that are much more familiar with the horror and ghost genre. Michigan has such a rich history and wilderness that it is ripe for stories, true and fictional. However, true or not (I enjoy both) these stories were a poor representation. The stories were mostly inane and pretty dull. Some I'm not sure what the point exactly was. Not to mention it's always irritating when people think that southern Michigan (because that's where the bigger cities are) is the ONLY Michigan. I know people write what they know but a wider writing pool would have been nice. Most of the stories were not scary, or even very interesting and I really had to push my way through. For an excellent book of horror stories based in Michigan I would suggest Christopher Knight's Season of the Witch: Six Tales of Dark Horror.

This is a good read, especially if you have traveled Michigan and can personally relate to some of these locations .

I was born and raised in Michigan so the book was interesting to me from the start. I also know one of the writers, Elizabeth Schmuhl. Although wrote in a third person perspective, her story is true! I really enjoyed the different works of the various authors...each unique in their own way. It was a great read for a glimpse into the unexplainable.

I read four and a half stories from this book. Random stories; not in order. All of them were very disappointing. They were not scary at all. They were all boring and uninteresting. They all seemed to fall apart at the end, leaving me thinking "really? That's supposed to be a ghost story?" Four and a half duds was too many for me. Maybe there are some good stories in the book, but I will not be investing any more time in it to find out.
