"Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places" is one of the finest compendiums of ghost stories I have ever seen. In fact, I doubt that it would be possible to find a book that features more information on the best known reports of a haunting, along with lesser known reports published for the first time. Along with the stories, Steiger furnishes many of the techniques employed by modern paranormal investigators. This information is simply missing from most other collections of ghostly tales and helps the reader understand the current theories and approaches investigators have in this field.
Everything in this book including the Appendixes, with movie recommendations, and a listing of paranormal groups makes this book a solid addition to anyone's library, whether it is for the serious researcher or those who love a good ghost story and would perhaps like more in depth information on ghosts and haunting activity.
I've spent over 35 years researching and investigating in this field and cannot think of anything that Brad has failed to at least touch on with this work. It is certainly a Magnum Opus, and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the subject.
These are just a few of the intriguing enigmas that are probed in Brad Steiger's encyclopedic new volume, "Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places." Covering everything from haunted inns to spirit parasites to phantom armies, the comprehensive nature of this work has set a new standard for the coverage of paranormal topics. Moreover, its 600-plus pages are richly embellished with fascinating photos and bold subject headings, rendering it especially reader-friendly. Finally, its detailed appendices covering haunted cities, ghost films, and parapsychological organizations are practically worth the price of admission alone!
Without a doubt, every student of the unknown should add this book to his or her library immediately, if not sooner!
I've been a Steiger fan for a long time and over the years have always been so impressed by his detailed research and ability to come up with new storys told in his own special way....that certainly keeps a reader wanting more...and in this instance numerous times on the edge of one's chair.
There is something for everyone in this most recent book. "Real Ghosts, Resless Spirits and Haunted Places". And I think it is so complete...and so informative and so well written to activate one's interest to want to know more about this intriguing subject. It is certainly a book that must be read and re-read for there is so much to read about and then important for one to think about...Certainly some of the storys require an open mind...but then that's a good reason to read, to learn more...I was so interested in everything....a couple of really hair raising storys...but that's good..it truly gets you thinking.
But I truly must say I enjoyed reading about the late actor Ted Knight..that was a teriffic story...and really made you wonder 'what if'. Also liked reading about Mae West and what she said about the dimension she is in. But the one that really got my attention was when the intuitive/medium Clarisa Bernhardt was 'told' by a ghost that something was very wrong in a house she had been invited to check out ...and the family followed the clues from the information given and it actually prevented the house from blowing up. And then the same ghost, also told her about money buried, that the family later actually found. So it is interesting that sometimes the intangible things do come forth and prove to be very real and end up being a powerful demonstraton...Read more ›
