THE HAUNTED MANSION PROJECT: YEAR ONE by HWA Member Editor E.S. Magill

Editor: E.S. Magill

In the fall of 2010, ten horror writers met at a real haunted mansion to spend four days together. Joining them were a group of paranormal investigators who studied the house and reported their findings. This anthology is a collection of the fiction, poetry, journals, real impressions, and investigative conclusions created at or inspired by that weekend. Find out what scares horror authors: E.S. Magill, Rain Graves, Nikki Boscia, Loren Rhoads, Sephera Giron, Kim Richards, Yvonne Navarro, Weston Ochse, Christian Colvin, Dan Weidman, and S.G. Browne. Proceeds from this anthology go toward future Haunted Mansion events.
