AuthorZone.Com Book Review
While many ghost stories seem contrived, one of the most refreshing things about Morris' book is how genuine the stories seem.

I just finished reading this book for the second time, and I feel compelled to write a review. I purchased THE GHOST NEXT DOOR several months ago and devoured it within the first few days I had it. I really enjoyed it.
One night, recently, the weather was nasty outside and I was home alone. I was in the mood for some ghost stories, so I pulled THE GHOST NEXT DOOR off the shelf and made myself comfy in my Lazyboy. It was just as good the second time around! I found myself continuing to read through it over the next few days, until I had finished it once again.
This book does something not many books of its kind can lay claim to: It holds my interest from cover to cover. Maybe it's the author's wonderful writing style; maybe it's the fact that the stories are new and original; maybe it's because the book describes ghostly activity as experienced by ordinary people; heck, maybe it's the oh-so-creepy picture on the cover of the book! The fact is that it's all of these things that make this book so eerily entertaining.
I look forward eagerly to Mr. Morris' next book. Until then, I'll probably read this one a few more times!

I have a fairly extensive collection of books on true ghost experiences, and The Ghost Next Door is written just the way I like them. The author prefaces each story with some interesting (and sometimes eerie) commentary. He wraps each of them up with commentary, as well. I also like that the stories come straight from the source--the person who actually had the encounter with a ghost. I couldn't put this book down, and I read most of it in one night (I was up until two in the morning, and didn't want to go to sleep because I was so creeped out!). If you're interested in ghosts and paranormal phenomena, this book is a must-have!

Having been involved in the paranormal for many years, I have picked up, flipped through and subsequently replaced many books that have been written on this subject. I am not a regular reader of books; I do enjoy them, but I rarely have enough spare time to sit down and really get into them. I do own many ghost books, most of which have to do with famous buildings that house famous ghosts. The accounts tend to read more like local urban myths, however, and I rarely read them properly but refer back to them if I ever need to review information on a particular location.
A coworker handed me "The Ghost Next Door" and asked me to write a review of it. As soon as the book landed in my hands, I flipped it over to read the back cover. I had only to read the first paragraph to understand how interesting this book was going to be...
I'd made a decision before arriving home that I WOULD find the time to read this book and write a short review--but I also decided to be honest and not write a great review simply to be nice to the author. I was so keen by the time I got home that, despite the hour being late and myself tired, I jumped onto the sofa and kicked off my shoes, thinking, "I shall just read a few pages to see what it's about..."
The author's introduction was excellent, and I found myself in agreement with many of his theories and ideas. I also found myself launching straight into the first story...then the second. I was captivated, only eventually closing the book due to a desperate need for sleep, which was definitely not brought about by the book itself! I was actually rather surprised at how much of the book I'd already read. As I lay in bed drifting off to sleep, I thought about the book and the stories within it; these were REAL stories from everyday people.

Format: Paperback
It's always interesting to read real-life accounts of people who've had encounters with spirits. Real, everyday people, not some celebrity has-been on some half-baked mediums show, trying to shill a book or something. And although the various shows that pop up on the History Channel and Travel Channel, there's still something not quite as scary when actors are used to re-create an encounter. That's why this book is so satisfying and so downright chilling to read. The encounters are from just everyday people like you and me. Some are rather humorous and some downright unsettlingly scary.

Author Mark Alan Morris pens these stories like a master craftsmen. You'll not only find traditional haunted house hauntings but hauntings in Inns, battlefields, and in cemetary's as well. I'm not bother by some reviewers complaints that the author didn't try to authenticate these stories. I don't think that was what the book is about. These people seem to be speaking form their hearts and directly to the readers. Morris adds a postscript to the stories that wraps them up fairly neatly. This is a great one for reading on those dark and stormy nights or telling a few tales around Halloween. Great stuff!

Format: Paperback
Mark Alan Morris has put together a nice little book of ghost stories that he has collected from family and friends. This is an interesting book, an intriguing book, and a well-written book, but most of all it is a book that could have been so much more. Morris' conversational writing style makes one feel as if he or she is sitting by a crackling fire while the author tells his ghost stories in person. The stories are very good and begin to draw the reader in but just as I would begin to edge up on the edge of my seat, the story would end.

The main problem is that Morris has done no research on any of these stories, which he tells so well. If he had put just a little effort into finding out the possible origins of these haunts this book would have been so much better. Some ghost story books spoil the mood with too much historical background but it helps the reader immensely to have some idea of the origin of the ghost in question. The few stories in this book that do have some background have it because the possible ghost is a relative of the person who related the story to the author and even then there is often very little information provided about this person's life.

A good example of this lack of background comes from the last story in the book, which deals with a photograph that the author took in Savannah. In this picture there appear a couple of shadowy figures, which he feels might have been ghostly Monks. He and his new bride had wondered if the building across the street from the B&B where they took the photo might have once been a church even before they even took the picture in question, let alone had it developed.
