"Made of wet boots and rain and shiny black ravens on chimney smoke lanes," sang Tom Waits in his song "November." We recommend you dig out Waits's Black Rider album to spin while you dig into Steve Vernon's book---published by Nimbus---on the darker corners of our seaside town, the restless spirits that stalk our old buildings and basements. Vernon would know, he's already written books with titles such as Haunted Harbours, Wicked Woods and Texas Terrors.
