For those readers who have already enjoyed author Terry Boyle's first edition of Haunted Ontario this is a revised version of the original with some new and some updated information. Terry's books are a treat to read and quite useful to both those who enjoy a good ghost story and for readers who may wish to be a little more hands on and visit some of these locations. Most of the accounts within Haunted Ontario involve public places making it a great travelling companion for the adventurous road tripper. I had the pleasure of meeting the author many years ago at a Toronto Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society event held at old Fort York in Toronto Ontario. At that time Terry gave a fun and informative  presentation on ghosts around the province, and I find his writing style similar to his easy going in person personality. I play a very small role in this book in regards to the now demolished Guild Inn Scarborough (former name Darroch) and I can confirm it was indeed an interesting haunt so to speak.

If you enjoy ghost stories and want to learn more about the spirits that haunt Ontario this will be a worthwhile read and a great edition to you home library.

Available in softcover and e-pub through Dundurn, Amazon, Chapters and other bookshops
