Troup Tales from West Point Lake–Georgia

While I tried to create some videos during the lockdown, my time was taken up with my day job, so in the end I produced a grand total of one video (the Talbot County Werewolf). A friend of mine recently suggested we record some stories to test some of his video equipment, and this is the result.

Told from the shores of West Point Lake in Troup County, Georgia, these three stories take place near this lake. One is a personal story, I also include a story from my Strange LaGrange tour, and finally, the story of the mysterious Hearn Tablet.

Southern Spirit Guide Video–The Legend of the Talbot County Werewolf

I have been meaning to create some videos for some time. Now, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s a great time to begin making videos and telling ghost stories.

I wrote this version of the legend of the Talbot County werewolf to be presented at the Georgia Library Association Convention in 2018. While some of the details of this legend are fact, my setting adds scenes and dialogue for effect.

As always, I must provide a source list.
