A Haunted Titanic

E. Merwin (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781684024919

It was the night of April 14, 1912. Jessie Sayre, a young orphan, tossed and turned in a feverish sleep. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, the Titanic cruised in the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean toward an unseen iceberg. Yet somehow Jessie sensed the Titanic’s doom. “I am so afraid. Can’t you see that big ship sinking in the water?” she called out in the night. “Look at all those people who are drowning!” Then Jessie fell into a coma and died at 11:40 P.M.— the same time an iceberg pierced the Titanic’s hull. A Haunted Titanic uncovers the chilling stories, uncanny revelations, and ghostly premonitions surrounding the doomed ship. The tales, like the ship herself, are cloaked in icy darkness and mystery—and will undoubtedly captivate readers. Large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes enrich the creepy content.

Joyce Markovics (author)

Publisher: Bearport Publishing ISBN: 9781684024957

It’s closing time at a museum. Most of the visitors have already left the building as the lights flicker. A stuffed grizzly bear towers in the corner of the room near the exit sign. Everything about the dead animals looks real—from its razor-sharp claws to its piercing eyes. Is it watching you? That’s when you notice a thin, bloody stream of saliva dripping from its open mouth. The lights flicker again and shut off, blanketing the room in darkness. Suddenly, there’s a deafening ROAR! In the 11 spooky museums in this book, you will explore a shrine to black magic, a collection of preserved brains, a museum haunted by a famous dead artist, and a gallery that holds the severed head of a killer, along with many other peculiar places.
