About the Book

This expanded, updated, and revised edition of A Guide to the Ghosts of Lincoln takes you on a tour of the known and the obscure sites in Lincoln, Nebraska, where on a dark and silent evening you might feel a slight chill in the air, hear the faint calling of a lost soul, or see the ghostly shape of a spirit fade into blackness.
Since its original publication, hundreds of people have submitted stories about the haunted places of eastern Nebraska. The best of those stories have been added to this new edition along with updated versions of all the old, classic stories. A book for both the easily frightened and the hardened skeptic, A Guide to the Ghosts of Lincoln is guaranteed to send shivers of fear down any spine.

Alan Boye includes the famous story of the apparition at the C. C. White Building, as well as those of the Capitol Building ghost, the haunting of the university’s Temple Theater, the woman at Antelope Park, the details of Lincoln’s haunted bike path, and the mysterious story of Captain Jack. The new stories introduce readers to the fervent face in the window of a church and the chilling girl on the other side of the mirror in the locker room of a local high school.
