Early Winnipeg was a booming city with no shortage of murders, cheating lovers and tragic accidents; all play a role in Winnipeg’s reputation as one of Canada’s most haunted places. 

Matthew Komus has developed programs and exhibits for many museums and heritage sites. He also operates Winnipeg Ghost Walk, the city’s first walking tour.

They Came from Within: A History of Canadian Horror Cinema (Revised Edition)

Caelum Vatnsdal unwinds the history of this neglected genre to learn “why we fear what we fear and how it came to be that way.” Engagingly written, extensively researched, and lavishly illustrated with rare stills and poster art.

On Sober Second Thought

When J.C. Cloutier, aide to the leader in the Senate, enlists him in a scheme to cover up the brewing scandal, Warren is set to jump in. But before he can have a sober second thought, he is derailed by an event that threatens to blow the lid off the Senate – literally. 

As a reporter and editorial writer, Barbara Robson Bond wrote for the Winnipeg Free Press, Canadian Press wire service, Maclean’s magazine and more.
