Review: Suburban Legends

There are a lot of books on the paranormal that contain scholarly, objective descriptions of mysterious events.

This is not one of those books.

Suburban Legends by Sam Stall is a tongue-in-cheek look at ghosts, aliens, true-crime, and other weirdness that just happens to show up in the suburbs. It’s a quick, easy read, with every chapter standing on its own as a bite-sized urban legend.

If you haven’t heard about Quirk Classics, that probably means you’ve been living under a rock on Mars for a while.  These guys are responsible for the hits Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.  Well, the latest one to come out from Quirk is the hilariously titled Android Karenina.  It apparently follows Tolstoy’s classic fairly faithfully… except that its lead heroine is not unlike Data from Star Trek.  Personally, I am salivating in anticipation for this robot classic.  Also, I’ve heard some craziness in the rumor mill about an Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  This book will combine two favorite things: emancipation and vampirism.  How can you go wrong?!
