Full of ghosts and strange sights, Edmonton is a place rich in the paranormal. Or is it? Are there really spirits that lurk around Fort Edmonton and the provincial legislature? Do ghosts really haunt the halls of the University of Alberta, rushing off to classes that have long finished? Can paranormal echoes of the dark history of Charles Camsell Hospital still be felt within its walls today? What about the stories of the phantoms that loiter around the graveyards, bars, schools, and pools of the city?
In this collection of more than forty stories, Eerie Edmonton reveals the truth in the tales people tell and shines a spotlight on the city’s dark shadows and colourful past. Join Rhonda Parrish and Rona Anderson as they compare personal accounts of hauntings and paranormal activity with documented history and their own on-the-ground investigations.

“Eerie Edmonton is a fantastic addition to any ghost story lover’s library, filled with humour, honesty, and creepinesss a-plenty. Parrish frames all the stories with good-humour and common sense, which seems counterintuitive for a paranormal book, but in fact, heightens the feeling of possibility and what-ifs. Whether you’re a proclaimed skeptic or a die-hard believer, Eerie Edmonton gives you good reason—and a great list of places—to explore precisely why we love ghost stories so much.”
