About the Author

Dennis William Hauck, journalist and internationally recognized authority on the paranormal, is one of the founding editors of the Mutual UFO Network's MUFON UFO Journal. He currently publishes a weekly newsletter, The Haunted Places Report.

 


More About the Author

Dennis William Hauck is an author, consultant, and lecturer working to facilitate personal and planetary transformation through the application of the ancient principles of alchemy. He writes and lectures on the universal principles of physical, psychological, and spiritual transformation to a wide variety of audiences that range from scientists and business leaders to religious and New Age groups. Hauck's interest in alchemy began while he was still in graduate school at the University of Vienna, where he was initiated into the craft by a practicing alchemist from Prague.

Hauck has since translated a number of important alchemy manuscripts dating back to the fourteenth century and has published over a dozen books on the subject. His "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Alchemy" (Penguin Alpha 2008) is considered the best introduction to alchemy available today, and his "The Emerald Tablet: Alchemy for Personal Transformation" (Penguin 1999) presents Hauck's original research about the mysterious artifact that inspired over 3,000 years of alchemy. His "Sorcerer's Stone: A Beginner's Guide to Alchemy" (Penguin Citadel 2004) is an entertaining introduction to practical and spiritual alchemy. He is currently working on a sequel to "The Emerald Tablet" entitled "Secret Science of the Emerald Tablet: The Spiritual Chemistry of Alchemy."

His books have been featured in USA Today, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Harper's, and hundreds of other periodicals. He has been interviewed on over 300 radio and TV programs, including "NPR's Morning Edition," "Sally Jessy Raphael," "Geraldo," "The O'Reilly Factor," "Extra," and "CNN Reports."

Hauck holds lectures and workshops throughout the world on the various aspects of practical, mental, and spiritual alchemy. He is founder of the International Alchemy Conference (AlchemyConference.com), an instructor in alchemy (AlchemyStudy.com), and is president of the International Alchemy Guild (AlchemyGuild.org). His websites are Alchemergy.org, AlchemyLab.com, and DWHauck.com.

Hauck is a professional member of the ASSC (Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness), the AMS (American Mathematical Society), CRS (Center for Research in Science), ATP (Association for Transpersonal Psychology), and ISSSEEM (International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine).

Great travel guide in our RV.

The book also tells you about the haunting and even gives you a address and phone number.

I received Mr. Haucks book from my husband after he conducted an interview with him for a radio show in Chicago IL.1996. Since that time we have Lived in MA., MI., GA., and currently NY. We have traveled by car to and from these states often. It has been interesting to read about the haunted sights listed. We visited many of them along our way for entertainment. I am not an expert on the subject of the paranormal but I do enjoy reading about sightings, area legends and superstitions. Thanks to Mr. Haucks book we have taken time out in areas of the country that we never would have visited other wise. I read the review or rather comment made by Dr. Myers about Mr. Haucks reported hauntings. I can only offer this story in response. My husband and I visited Graceland Cemetary in Chicago and saw the statue of Inez Clarke under glass on our first visit. Upon the second visit some weeks later (after a rain)the statue was not there. Do I believe she was walking around? or just out for repairs? I can't say but it did make our visit all the more interesting and we never would have noticed if we hadn't looked in the book. Nowasa NY,NY.

Format: Paperback
Haunted Places, The National Directory is one of those books that once you get started reading is difficult to put down.
For example, do not read the section about Tennessee's Bell Witch alone late in the evening unless you don't have to be at work early the next day. These stories contained in this book
are genuinely creepy and will keep you awake late into the night. Better than coffee. This book is everything a good true
ghost story book should be. Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Overall, this is a great way to get started on your search for the haunts of ghouls and ghosts; Mr. Hauck gives more than enough locations and write-ups to get a newly interested monster-hunter on his way. The book, of course, is only the tip of the iceberg, offering only the 'mainstream' haunted places, and often, I've found that he has gotten several of the legends wrong - I do realize that this may be due, in part, to those I've spoken with, but locals generally know better. I do reccomend this collection to the serious individual, because it does lead to many 'secret spots' and local places of the weird. Most of the time, you can start off looking for one place, and the people around it will say 'well, that place might be haunted, but such and such a place is ten times worse.' So pick this up and you're on the way!

This isn't a bad book at all. I just had a different idea of what it would include. If you are truly looking for a directory of places all across the country and you plan to do some traveling, this is your book. However, if you're like me and plan to do more reading than traveling, this isn't the book for you. It really, truly is a directory. Think phone book...it has the location names, addresses and a few sentences on the locations' haunted activity. If that's what you're looking for, buy this book. However, if you're looking for an enjoyable read - this one isn't it. Again, it really is a directory.

I found this book to be very helpful. I have always been interested in authentic hauntings, and often find myself looking for a local haunted house when I travel. This book tells you not just about the occurrences, but also where the lives of the spirtis began and ended, and why they have come back from the spirit world.
I liked the fact that it told you whether visitors and interviews were allowed. It was also helpful that the book told you on a scale of 1-5 the chances of encountering a spirit.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to visit haunted sites, or would rather sit home in the safety of their own beds and be chilled.

Format: Paperback
Haunted Places: The National Directory, by Dennis William Hauck, is a treasure trove of not only reputedly haunted places, but of our country's history as well. Sorted alphabetically by state, then by city, it's easy to find a haunted place within driving distance. Directions are given to locations, and phone numbers when they're open to the public. If you plan on doing some traveling throughout the country, this book could be the difference between just another boring tourist trap and an exciting Ghost Hunt. Don't forget your camera!

Format: Paperback
I am a ghost afficianado, with shelves full of books on the subject, but this one stands out. It covers SO MANY haunted sites! In my area alone there must have been 30 sites listed (which is more than the local authors could manage to gather), yet each listing seems legitimate, and checks out with the local fokelore. There are haunted cemeteries, houses, churches, schools, libraries, etc. I've actually had people tell me about having experienced strange things in some of the local sites BEFORE they even knew I had this book... imagine their shock when I showed them that the place in question is listed in the book!
Each listing doesn't necessarily have too many details, but just a short background and description of the phenomena... there are an amazing number of listings for every corner of the country, though! I highly recommend it!

What makes all this information better is that all the cases were true!!! I liked the fact that cases were reported from all fifty states, so you can bet you'll find a site near you. This book posed a variety of supernatural accounts, from ghosts and hauntings (my personal fave) to UFO sightings and sacred land. I can't reccommend this book highly enough!!!!!!
