Trade Paperback, 240 Pages

$15.00, ISBN: 9780143129721

Genre(s): Fortean Historical Mysteries


The President’s Vampire: Strange-but-True Tales of the United States of America, originally published by Anomalist Books, is being reprinted by TarcherPerigee as The Bye Bye Man and Other Strange-But-True Tales to coincide with the release of the major motion picture, The Bye Bye Man, opening on June 3, 2016. Directed by Stacy Title, the movie stars Douglas Smith, Lucien Laviscount, and Cressida Bonas.

The reprint, new title, and movie highlights one of the stories in the original book entitled “The Bridge to Body Island.” The story revolves around three college students who spent a long Wisconsin winter in 1990 experimenting with a Ouija board; it turned out to be the deadliest mistake of their lives. The board brought them into contact with a psychic serial killer, known only as the Bye Bye Man. This unsettling tale is accompanied by the other seven chapters of twisted history in the original book, and includes the author’s new afterword, “Searching for The Bye Bye Man.”
