Prepare to get chicken skin once again—or for the very first time—as you read the 45 stories representing the best of the 7-volume Hawai‘i’s Best Spooky Tales series. Written by authors of all ages, ethnicities, and occupations, these stories of encounters with the otherworldly in Hawai‘i are remarkably varied, surprising, and compelling. The goddess Pele makes an appearance, of course, but so do departed relatives, Pearl Harbor sailors, and the late Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole. At hula performances, on golf courses, in cemeteries, or in living rooms, inexplicable things happen to believers and nonbelievers alike.


Rick Carroll is the creator of the bestselling Hawai‘i’s Best Spooky Tales series, collections of true first-person stories of mysterious encounters in the Hawaiian Islands.

Carroll began collecting oral stories in Hawai‘i 2 decades ago and has brought more than 150 new local authors to print in his Spooky Tales books.

Rick is a former daily journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle and author of Hawaii: True Stories of the Island Spirit and IZ: Voice of the People.
