Lurking in Pennsylvania collects three decades of William P. Robertson's best horror stories and poems, many of which appeared in magazines worldwide. Bill specializes in understated Gothic terror in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. He draws his material from McKean County legends, his Grandma B's Swedish folktales, and traumatic personal experiences. He also delves into dark humor and lends a fresh perspective to such classic beings as the werewolf and troll. Bill's best work chills rather than sickens. Sometimes what is left unsaid is the most terrifying of all. . .
