Truth, like love, isn’t always obvious.
Seventeen-year-old Ruby Brooks has never had a boyfriend. After moving to small-town La Luna, New Mexico following her mother’s untimely death, boys aren’t even on her radar. Ruby just wants to forget the last horrible year and blend in. But when she discovers an ancient pueblo ruin in the forest behind her house, and meets Ezra, a bitter recluse whose once-perfect face was destroyed in an accident he won’t talk about; Angel, La Luna’s handsome sheriff’s deputy, and Leo, a stranger who only appears near the ruin, Ruby finds herself teetering between love, mystery, and other worlds. What happened to Ezra’s face? And why is she so attracted to the one boy in town everyone despises? As Ruby unravels her own connections to both Ezra and the pueblo ruin, she’ll learn surfaces are deceiving. Especially in the heart of New Mexico, where spirits and legends aren’t always just campfire stories.

Jewels and her brothers, Manny and Brooks lived in a small village of the darkest of shades, and a colorless world surrounds them. Her brothers were very different from the villagers there and so was Jewels. She wanted to fit in with the villagers while her brothers could care less to fit in with the boring, bland people there.
Manny and Brooks discovered another village far beyond the forest, one that was magical and of many colors beyond their wildest dreams, the likes of which were only found only within the forbidden books known as the Corridor of Hues, which were destroyed in their village.
Jewels and her brothers are cast out from their village and take a leap of hope to join the colorful world that the brothers discovered. Many strange surprises await them along the way. Is the grass truly greener on the other side? One can only hope so…
The classic inaugural work by the well-known British ‘ghost hunter’ Peter Underwood (1923-2014), which can now be read in conjunction with a specially created ‘Gazetteer of British Ghosts’ GoogleMap, as well as ‘The Ghostly Gazetteer’, a WordPress blog dedicated to hunting down illustrations to all 236 sites contained in the book.
First published in 1971, and republished under the title ‘The A-Z of British Ghosts’ in the 1990s, this work represents the first attempt to offer a systematic survey of uncanny accounts of ghostly happenings throughout Britain, ranging from legendary to real-life experiences.
This newly revised ‘pure digital’ edition has been updated with information about the current status of each site, and each account has been further revised for greater clarity and ease of reading, following in Underwood’s footsteps in terms of his style, as well as in his aim of making each account as interesting and readable to the reader as possible.
You can read about famous haunted houses such as Borley Rectory, Hampton Court and Glamis Castle, as well as lesser known hauntings such as those associated with Woburn, Bury St Edmunds, and the Gargoyle Theatre in London’s Soho.
This new edition also includes a foreword by Underwood’s son Christopher, as well as an afterword by author Alan Williams, followed an interview Williams conducted with Underwood in 1997.
‘Every single entry has been reconsidered for today’s readership – to bring Underwood’s original accounts into the present – to enliven them and carry on his original endeavour to present them to the reader in the most accessible and readable way’ – Adam Underwood – Editor of the ‘Revised Edition’.
‘I read Peter Underwood, book after book, year after year and I hope that I am able to make my own readers feel that way about my own.’ – Alan Williams, author of The Seance Parlour (2013)
