Beyond the Seventh Gate: Exploring Toad Road, the Seven Gates of Hell, and Other Strangeness in York, Lancaster, and Adams Counties by Timothy Renner (2016)

Beyond the Seventh Gate is a entertaining read. Not overly long, but it explores a lot in it 150ish pages. Focused South Central Pennsylvania, Timothy Renner first takes the time to dispel some of the local unban myths about a place called Toad Road, a burning insane asylum, and the Seven Gates of Hell. Then, however, he reveals a wealth of strangeness that actually has some reality to it, from reports of bigfoot and dogman, even goatman, to strange UFO sightings, weird ghost encounters, and some really, really bizarre encounters, all centered in that general area. It seems to be a bit of a cluster of weirdness. He gets into the truth behind the Hex Hollow murder, and clears the names of some innocent people that have been caught up in the urban myths. On top of that, the book has plenty of photos, and some outstanding artwork by the author.
