Revised Edition of "Hell" Coming

"Tales of Hell's Half Acre" that is!

This collection of true historical events, people and where legendary episodes occurred is being expanded and revised to include more maps, more stories and make it useful as a take along tour book for both individual and guided tours of Oklahoma City.  It will be a "must have" for visitors and locals alike! 
Each story will be clearly linked to a map to help the reader see where things happened and get a feel for how things change, and how much things get 'forgotten' over time.
It is hoped it will be part of a series of similar books in a "Haunted By History" series.

Look for it soon!
