The Ghost Returns!

The ADS Board is pleased to announce that The Ghost of Black Hawk Island is now available in paperback and ebook.  This beautifully illustrated re-published edition is a must-have for Derleth fans, and a perfect gift for anyone 12 and up. Set on an island in the Wisconsin Dells (formerly Kilbourn), Steve and Sim must solve the mystery of a phosphorescent Indian apparition. This continues to be one of the Society’s best sellers.



We republished August Derleth’s Village Year as an ebook, the first of what we hope will be many more!
