Supernatural occurrences around Charleston, South Carolina are as abundant as the oyster shells along its salty channels. Supernatural Charleston is comprised of events in natural surroundings, in reclaimed Native lowcountry folklore, and awe-inspiring phenomena belonging to Mother Nature herself-- her ancient trees, pulsing waterways, massive storms, and powerful earthquakes. All the best supernatural experiences have been exhumed from Geordie Buxton’s haunted trilogy spanning nearly a decade, as well as reclaimed and newly discovered documentation of territorial forest spirits around the fifteen hundred year old Angel Oak tree, the Spanish Moss of San Miguel de Guadlape, and the soul mates who dance on the Green Hill acreage of Magnolia Cemetery. Within the old bastion walls of Charles Towne, readers come face to face with a pirate spirit who refuses to leave a Meeting Street manse near the original waterline of public hangings, the frantic knock of an English boy who fell victim to the great earthquake of 1886, and a blossoming crape myrtle tree that never dies. Along the ruins of Lowcountry plantations, an Indian maiden keeps guests stirring at The Wampee House, a specter of a slave is still molding clay bricks at Boone Hall, and the hollows of Secessionville in James Island replay the sounds of Charleston’s bloodiest Civil War battle. Confederates at the old Citadel and poltergeists of orphans around the College of Charleston starlight the heart of the peninsula, Marion Square, and nearby the spirit of a priest still shepherds his flock at an old Scottish graveyard. The newest of these stories include a timeline prophecy of Black Drink Singer and the coming total solar eclipse over the Holy City of Charleston on August 21, 2017. Supernatural Charleston brings together authentic, rich, and textured bodies of work that explain paranormal mysteries and folklore in unique historical detail which readers will find to be as enchanting as the spirits themselves.
