"We're so excited to finally announce our big quarantine project! We've had the idea for this book for years and it's so exciting to see that it's really here. If you're looking for some spooky travel inspiration, bar and ice cream recommendations, or generally off-the-beaten-path attractions, we've got it all in our book," Schulz explained about A Haunted Road Atlas. "After years of sharing spooky stories via audio, we figured it was time to put our favorite haunts into writing. With travel picking up again, we hope our book inspires readers to explore all the spookiness these cities have to offer. We can't wait to share our favorite spooky spots across the country," Schiefer added.
Jam-packed with illustrations, fun facts, travel tips, and beverage recs, this illustrated guide includes some of the country's most notorious crime scenes, hauntings, and supernatural sightings. You'll also find Christine and Em's personal recommendations to the best local bars and ice cream parlors, oddity museums, curiosity shops, and more.
