"A well-told ghost story is always a treat, and Ian Gibbs is a master storyteller. Ian's debut collection is a terrific addition to the ghost story genre; clearly the paranormal is in this man's blood. Victoria's Most Haunted is chock full of spooky, thought-provoking tales that take the reader on a tour through time and place to a side of Victoria known by few, offering us a glimpse of the city just beyond the veil. Ranging from poignant to downright scary, these accounts will cast your perspective of staid old Victoria in an entirely new light."
