Haunting the WordPress plugin repository

Jeepers Creepers Jeepers Creepers: Canadian Accounts of Weird Events and ExperiencesJohn Robert Colombo; Dundurn 2011WorldCatLibraryThingGoogle BooksBookFinder 
 Friend and prolific author John Robert Colombo has a book out that makes perfect Halloween reading, so I used it to test a WordPress plugin that is automatically generating what you see above… links and all.

From the Preface – “In the pages of this book you will find a goodly number of hair-raising stories concerning the supernatural.”

I count 35 such stories, first-person accounts reported to the author.

In order to get the listing to work with the WordPress plugin, I had to enter its description into the Open Library database and upload the cover photo. Jeepers Creepers wasn’t there yet, but 114 other books by John Robert Colombo were already listed. (That’s about half of his output, I reckon.) Some had cover photos but most did not.

Just for fun, I am “plugging in” a listing of one of the books already listed when I arrived at the Open Library site.
