Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In Our Haunted Lives, experienced paranormal researcher Jeff Belanger allows readers the thrill of experiencing firsthand accounts of haunting phenomena as told in the witnesses' own words. It is quite likely readers will be looking into the shadowy corners of their rooms while reading this book." —Brad Steiger, author, Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Jeff Belanger leads a very haunted life. He's been fascinated with the supernatural since age 10, when he investigated his first haunted house during a sleepover. Since then, he's been a writer and journalist for various newspapers and magazines, and in 1999 he launched Ghostvillage.com as a repository for his writings on the subject of the supernatural. The Website has since grown to become the largest paranormal community on the Web, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. He currently haunts Bellingham, Massachusetts, with his wife, Megan.

The author does a great job of grouping them together in categories.

I like the fact that the book was really a bunch of different interviews with people in regard to their different types of personal ghost experiences.

A fascinating collection of true stories about ghosts and hauntings.

Some time ago I read one of this author's other books and it was undoubtedly one of, if not the best book of this type that I had ever read. I was therefore understandably excited when I found this book and began to read because I expected another masterpiece of the ghostly kind. What I found however was something quite good but just not up to the standards that I had set for this author. I must admit that I may be being a little unfair here because if I had come across a book this good by almost any other author I would have been impressed but from Jeff Belanger I just expected a little more. This grand master of the ghost hunter world has just set the bar so high in his previous works that it's going to be almost impossible for him to reach the same level of perfection with every new book. I guess that I'm just going to have to accept that fact, whether I want to or not.

Over the years I have come to the conclusion that eyewitness accounts are indispensable to this type of book and that without them all you really end up with is a bunch of old legends. Belanger has a history of excellence in this area and this book is no exception. If anything he takes eyewitness accounts a little to the extreme in this case. The stories in this book are made up exclusively of interviews with eyewitnesses and these first person accounts are generally excellent. One pitfall of this style is evident in this book however and that pitfall is that some of the interviews will obviously be better than others. In other words, some people are just naturally more articulate than others while others are very articulate in person but their words seem to become less clear on paper. Overall though the interviews were excellent and were conducted in a very professional manner.

If you like your paranormal served up hot n' tasty, always watch for a new book by Ghostvillage.com's Jeff Belanger. This one includes the eye-openingly excellent interview with the late George (Amityville) Lutz that puts a far more realistic spin on the man than the popular press likes to present. Unknowingly, Jeff gave this man the honest epitaph he deserves.

I knew GL and had heard in private the things that Jeff coaxed out of him for the interview in this book. Having co-interviewed him on the radio, I also knew it was virtually impossible to get at the truth in that medium. It didn't make for ratings to talk about twisted-around metaphors being taken literally and publishing/production companies zinging things up. And George, easily baited, was quick to feed the fire whether he meant to or not.

The poor guy's dead -- he deserves a break. Everyone judged him by what others said, but here, Jeff lets him speak for himself. It's a Win-win thing.

As for the other items in this book, well, let's put it this way: There are only two paranormal non-fiction writers' books I'll buy sight unseen -- Loyd Auerbach's and Jeff Belanger's.

I highly recommend this book! The stories are believable and scary!! I couldn't go to bed at night without feeling a little nervous! It is a very good read for a trip, as the book is simply filled with short stories. The author does a great job of grouping them together in categories. You won't be sorry you bought this!

Apparently, we are NOT alone. In virtually every corner of the world, reports of supernatural occurrences have flourished, sparking heated debates between believers eager to share their experiences and skeptics just as eager to shoot them down.?In Our Haunted Lives, paranormal researcher Jeff Belanger shares with readers the haunting experiences of people from all over the U.S. and abroad. These "allegedly" true stories, recited in interview format, read like conversations told over coffee to a trusted friend.

While readers will gain an understanding of the witnesses need to share their experiences, you can almost feel their anxiety and fear. A 57-year-old factory worker from Illinois shares her vivid encounters in the house where she resided in 1966, with her in-laws. During one particular incident, she was lying in bed when something grabbed her hair and the hanging light on the ceiling started spinning.

Her sister-in-law's boyfriend shot and killed himself in the basement and in 1968, after her divorce, her husband murdered his father in the kitchen.

A man from Toronto, Canada, recalls his time with "spooks" at the house he lived in as a child. "Very soon after we moved in, we started experiencing the phenomena of doors closing by them selves, which at first we thought was the house settling," he says, "except for the fact that the doors would lock." At times, they would hear footsteps walking up the driveway, prompting them to look out the window, only to see no one.

These are but two of the dozens of firsthand accounts found in this treasure of a book. Individuals from all walks of life, ages, cultures, and religious backgrounds bravely reveal their stories in vivid detail.

Jeff Belanger's OUR HAUNTED LIVES: TRUE LIFE GHOST ENCOUNTERS results from interviews with dozens of witnesses to supernatural phenomena, providing a fine collection of testimonies of experience from those who have seen and sometimes communicated with ghosts. From famous ghosts to ghosts on the job, OUR HAUNTED LIVES will intrigue and interest any interested in the supernatural experience: reality, not tales.

More About the Author

History, belief, and folklore combine to create paranormal legends that challenge what we know about how the universe works. But are these legends more than just stories? What can we learn about ourselves in exploring the unexplained? Meet Jeff Belanger, the ultimate paranormal insider.

There's a relationship between ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, strange monsters, ancient mysteries, and other bizarre phenomena. These concepts offer us a path to our past, a connection with our fellow human beings in our present, and a way to ponder our own inevitable future. Though no one can explain exactly how it all works, few can match Jeff's ability to bring the odd out of the fringe and into our living rooms and near our office water coolers.

Belanger's approach is fun and informative. He brings a lot of personality and knowledge to his work. He's the author of a dozen books that have been published in six languages, he's the writer and researcher for the Ghost Adventures show on the Travel Channel, the host of the widely popular Web and cable talk show 30 Odd Minutes, he's a sought-after lecturer who speaks at dozens of events per year for audiences big and small, and he's a recognized media personality appearing on over 200 radio and television programs worldwide including: The History Channel, The Travel Channel, PBS, Living TV (UK), The Maury Show, The CBS News Early Show, National Public Radio, The BBC, Australian Radio Network, Coast to Coast AM, and The 'X' Zone.
