Some people have no scruples whatsoever. They lie, cheat, stab their best friend in the back, sleep with their sister's husband and rip off an entire website and publish it in a book without a second thought.
Such was the case with the content of Alyne Pustanio's new book, Purloined Stories and Early Tales of Old New Orleans. Stolen and published by a notorious plagiarizer, Alyne has taken her stories back from the thief and offers them in this fantastic new collection.
Told as only Alyne Pustanio can tell them, this book has new and updated versions of the stolen stories plus 12 additional tales of haunted New Orleans, including: the Devil Baby of New Orleans, The Ghost of Chicken Man, Legend of Grunch Road, Little Violette, the Zombi Child, The Rugarou, Werebeasts of the Swamp Indians, The Ghost of Jean Lafitte and the Phantom Pirates of Barataria, Werewolves in Suburbia and many more stories of the supernatural based on legends of Old New Orleans and Louisiana folklore. Written in her signature descriptive and colorful writing style, most people—even your average New Orleanian—may not be able to tell the folklore from the fiction. Once you read this collection of supernatural fiction, folklore and urban legend, you will understand why someone would want to steal her work - some stories are just so good they beg to be stolen!
