The magnetic aura surrounding?Sudbury, for both the living as well as?the once-alive, is the backdrop for tales of mystery, wonder, and outright horror.

"I tried to leave" is a common theme for those from the Sudbury region. People often vow to move away, but something about the Nickel City keeps luring them back. Whether it's the taste of fresh air - or just the sulphur in the air - it's hard to move beyond the black rocks, endless lakes, and great openness without longing to come home.

Some are so attached to the northern community that they choose to stick around, even when their physical life is over. After all, if the living can't leave the place behind, why should the dead?

Spooky Sudbury explores the magnetic aura surrounding the city, for the living as well as the once-alive, in these tales of the supernatural.
