"Carroll has just released his fifth collection of true accounts of inexplicable incidents, Hawaii's Best Spooky Tales 4, bringing a total of 130 local contemporary writers into print since 1996. 

It all started when Carroll an award-winning journalist was assigned to write a MidWeek cover story on graveyard historian Nanette Purnell on Halloween 1995. Publisher Benjamin Bess saw the story, called Carroll, and the rest is history... Publisher Bess guarantees they will send a shiver down your spine or your money back. He noted that none of the Spooky Tales 60,000 customers has ever taken him up on the offer."
