Summary

Quaint, charming Victoria is world renowned for its seaside attractions, flourishing gardens, and breathtaking ocean views. But looming behind its picture-perfect façade is a city shrouded in darkness, with restless, disembodied beings that whisper ghastly tales of mystery, violence, and horror.

Known as British Columbia’s most haunted city, Victoria is teeming with a plethora of spirits. Through this brand-new collection of disturbing tales, you’ll come face to face with:

The Grey Lady who chills hotel guests to the bone
A decorous World War I soldier who protects tenants from something sinister
An inconsolable child who haunts the pool area of a defunct hotel
The blood-soaked spectre who runs through the infamous Fan Tan Alley to escape capture
The eternal prisoner whose quiet laughter mocks his cell mates
The ghost of Robert Johnson, who perpetually reenacts his suicide
The phantom of a cranky hermit who plagues a beautiful lake house
A trickster who shoves inebriated pub patrons down the stairs
And a spinster who gives tours of her childhood home
And many more

Ian Gibbs is a Ghostly Walks guide in Victoria, and he has compiled the stories of Victoria’s best-known hauntings along with some you may have not have heard before.
