Is There Really Such a Thing as Ghosts?

The ADS Board is working diligently on republishing Derleth’s The¬†Ghost of Blackhawk Island, which is one of ten books in the Mill Creek Irregulars series. Set on an island in the Wisconsin Dells (formerly Kilbourn), Steve and Sim must solve the mystery of a phosphorescent Indian apparition. This continues to be one of the Society’s best sellers. ¬†Check back soon on our progress!
