GLT Datebook: Merry Christmas To All And To All A Good Fright

Nov 25, 2017

The true spirit of Christmas can have a dark side.

  • That's what author Sylvia Shults found when researching her latest book, "The Spirits of Christmas: The Dark Side of the Holidays." 
  • Shults is a central Illinois author who is well known for her books about the paranormal.
  • Her new work is a collection of stories that shows that there's more than just Santa that can come down a chimney.
  • The stories are culled from history and all around the world, dealing with Greek demons you don't want at your door,  wistful Appalachian ghost stories, and how the ghost of a plucked chicken  freaked out a WWII era soldier.
  • Her publisher is White Chapel Productions and the book is now available at Amazon and other booksellers.
