A Paranormal Victorian Holiday & Book Release

Celebrating the publication of The Morris-Jumel Mansion Anthology of Fantasy and Paranormal Fiction, the Mansion will be hosting a Paranormal Victorian Holiday event! Guests will be served hot spiced wine and cider, cheese, cookies and other holiday fare, and given an overview of paranormal activity at the mansion. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Victorian attire is encouraged, but not required. Holiday singing will close the evening’s festivities.

The anthology features 14 tales set in the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest house, which housed General George Washington during the Battle of Harlem Heights, and was subsequently the home of the infamous Aaron Burr and his wife, Eliza Jumel, who reputedly still haunts the grounds. The tales are ghost stories, science fiction, mystery, romance, erotica, time travel, visions of the afterlife, and paranormal fantasy.
