My recent book, Haunted Old West, has earned a dandy review in the February, 2013, issue of Western Writers of America’s magazine, Roundup. Here’s what reviewer, Lynn D. Bueling, had to say about the book:
A sleepless night spent in a haunted Irish hotel fascinated Matthew P. Mayo enough to set him on the trail identifying similar hair-raising sites in the Old West. He includes stories that could unsettle spook-prone readers or interest thrill-seeking travelers enough so they’d visit and experience the phenomena themselves.
The specter of a murdered miner with a hatchet buried in his forehead wanders about his claim, music plays in an abandoned saloon and a rocking chair persists in relocating itself to a window where a woman always sat. Mayo features 28 stories set in brothels, ghost towns, battlefields, mansions and much more to acquaint readers with the world of the paranormal in the Old West.
