Dark Haunted Day is William P. Robertson's second collection of macabre tales. As the title would indicate, ghost stories are the focus here. A gallant battlefield ghost, a malicious dorm phantom, and two spectral husbands are just a few of the hobgoblins haunting this anthology. The author again selects for his action such Pennsylvania settings as Gettysburg, Mansfield, and the ever-spooky McKean County. To add variety, a hunting horror story, a psychological thriller, and a Kinzua Viaduct death tale are included. Characters range from kids to the elderly, and all get their share of scares.
