Book Description

Varla Ventura, Coast to Coast favorite, Weird News blogger on Huffington Post, and author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces Weiser Books’ new Collection of forgotten occult classics. Paranormal Parlor is an eerie assemblage of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s sixth sense for tales of the weird and unusual.

An empty house, where no one dares live. A landlord who swears no one can make it through a single night. A brave, or foolish, young man with a scientific mind, who takes the challenge and locks himself in for a night he will never forget. And of course, it is a dark and stormy night... Apparitions, dark magic, floating objects, and paralyzing terror all wait any one who dares enter the doorway of this London haunted house. Written by Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton, most known for the classic horror intro "It was a dark and stormy night" Lytton takes his place in the archives of the most frightening fiction with The House and the Brain. Originally published in 1859 as The Haunters and the Haunted, or The House and the Brain this story will make even the most modern reader's blood curl.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seemed a bit dated July 28, 2014
By Ken
This was a good haunted house story but seemed a bit dated with several elements of the Spiritualism movement that was in its infancy at the time of publication. The author also went on several long missives expressing his ideas on the origins of hauntings and also displaying some considerable disbelief in the Spiritualism that filled this story.
