Of Donkey Ladies, Midget Mansions and the Ghost Tracks

ghostsAmazing what you can accidentally turn up on an Amazon.com search.

Looks like there’s a newish book out on San Antonio’s haunted history, Ghosts of San Antonio by Scott A. Johnson. Johnson has apparently released books detailing the ghostly goings on in other U.S. cities — and San Antonio, with its tales of the Donkey Lady, Midget Mansion and ghostly kids who push cars off railroad tracks, is just the latest.

Add Johnson’s book to Docia Schultz Williams’ collections of Texas ghost stories and sometimes-San Antonian Whitley Strieber’s tales of alien probing, and the Alamo City’s starting to develop a really weird reputation. As a horror/fantasy writer, I can’t say I have much problem with that.
