During my the past week, which I spent in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania–more commonly known as The Middle of Nowhere–I discovered a series of books which should be of some interest to Urban Phantasy readers. Pennsylvania Fireside Tales, by Jeffrey R. Frazier, is a multi-volume collection of folklore, ghost stories, hunting stories, and legends from the Native American tribes of Pennsylvania.
If I had been able to justify the expense, I might well have come away from the small bookshop where I found these books with the whole set, but that was not to be. Nevertheless, I’m going to try to lay hands on the books. I put my trust in the public library system on this count.
If you can track these books down, I recommend at least glancing through one or two, even if the prices seem a bit steep for each of the slim hardback volumes.
