Ghosts have been the entertaining subject of many works of fiction, but they're even more intriguing (and perhaps even scarier) when they are the focus of real-life hauntings in our own backyard. An employee of the St. James Hotel in New Mexico watches in shock as a fair-haired toddler with a terribly disfigured face disappears into the floor. This is just one of the paranormal mysteries Leslie Rule shares with us--a result of extensive interviews and research uncovering the reasons behind ghost sightings across the country. Coast to Coast Ghosts features dozens of spine-tingling, real-life ghost stories and approximately fifty black-and-white photographs taken by Rule, including some believed to have captured actual apparitions. Only the reader can decide. . . .

There was a time when the only way to travel between the major cities located around the coast of Australia was by ship. Up to the end of the nineteenth century, these ships were primarily intended to transport cargo. With Federation in 1901 came the development of a new type of coastal ship, intended to transport passengers in comfort, with cargo of secondary importance. During the first ten years of the twentieth century the size of coastal passenger vessels increased at a steady rate, along with improvements in their passenger accommodation. The twelve month period from September 1912 to September 1913 would see no less than six large new liners built for the major Australian coastal trades. Unfortunately, within a year of the last new liner entering service, World War One brought major changes to the coastal trade. Eventually all new liners, plus most of the older ones, were taken over for military duty in foreign waters, and the coastal trade virtually ground to a halt. Of the six large liners built just before the war, only two returned permanently to the Australian coastal trade. Things changed in 1929, when two large motorships were built. Larger and faster than any previous coastal liner, they completely outclassed the competition, and became extremely popular. In the mid-1930s three more large liners joined the trade within eighteen months. From 1936 to 1939 Australians enjoyed the best coastal service ever, but then war raised its ugly presence again, and for a second time the ships found themselves taken over for military duty. By the time all the ships built in the ten years before the war were back in commercial service, the coastal trade was facing intensive competition from airlines, which were establishing new routes and providing cheaper fares as well as much quicker travel times. The coastal liners struggled through the 1950s, but it was becoming increasingly clear that the time when travellers sought a pleasant few days at sea were ending, and the airliner was the mode of transport for the future. In 1961 the last two coastal liners were sold to foreign owners, and the coastal trade as it had been known for many years came to an end. There would be a small revival in the mid-1960s, when the State Shipping Service introduced a service that circumnavigated Australia, which enjoyed a brief flush of success, but in July 1969 this service ended.

Another edition of the Hobo series as told by A No.1, this time featuring the famed Jack London. Many are familiar with his social activism and literary classics, Call of the Wild and White Fang, but here we have an intimate travelogue of the man behind the legend. Even before his rise to greatness, A No. 1 can sense something special in the young Jack London and reluctantly agrees to his persistent requests to partner up for a grand hobo trip across the states from New York to Oakland. This is a rare inside glimpse of a true man amongst men, building his character through the trials and tribulations of the hobo life and hopping trains from coast to coast. And of course, this includes all the danger, thrills, violence, earnestness, wit and wisdom we’ve come to expect from tramp extraordinaire, A No. 1. Coast to Coast with Jack London is a slice of true Americana history too real to ever be in a history book and written as only an insider could. The hobo series is on off-kilter primer of subculture, counterculture, and anti-authoritarianism -- a must for any train fanatic or anyone intrigued by the lives of hoboes and tramps and life in general.
