I just finished reading True Haunting by Edwin F. Becker and loved this book. This is a truly good book to read if you are interested in hauntings, paranormal activity, ghosts and the like and want to read something of substance, not fiction.

Just before Thanksgiving, (2011) I was sitting at my desk, when I was wondering about people I had known. At some point I thought about the Becker's; so I searched the internet, and was directed to Amazon. There I found "True Haunting" by Edwin F. Becker; could it be! I had not seen or heard from Mr. and Mrs. Becker in forty years.
As I stared at this book, the memories hit me like a "thunderbolt exploding in my mind". I started reading the excerpts from "True Haunting," and I could hardly breathe. I was instantly transported back to the months that I lived in that apartment. Yes, I am the "Dave" mentioned in the book!
Mr. Becker's accounts of the events that he recalled, was like it happened yesterday. The events I remembered about that building are so true. Until I read his book I had not remembered many of the unspoken events that changed my life. Things that took place in our apartment could have filled another chapter. This was the first book I had ever ordered from Amazon, most books that I read are tech manuals. So I placed an order and received the book the day before Thanksgiving. This book held my attention till 4am! I could not put it down! I was so touched by the accounts in the book; I sent Mr. Becker an email and my phone number. It was like magic, he called me! Forty years ago that haunted building ended what could have been a friendship, and now that same haunted building may just bring us together.
Edwin Becker and his wife Marsha bought their first home. Young, naive and excited homeowners that they were, they totally ignored the strange and unusual events taking place every day. In the 1970's, as the author describes, the only image that people had for ghosts was the Hollywood one. Spectral ghouls, floating skeletons, moaning banshees, this was the view of the 'ghost' world. The Exorcist had not yet gone to print. Probably a good thing for the Beckers. As the entities began to make their presence more and more obvious, the Beckers and their tenants began a slow mental decline. As Mr. Becker uncovers more of the previous family's secrets,the pieces begin to fall into place.Read more ›
i personally have never been a skeptic having lived in old houses in Vermont and growing up around cemeteries, I understand that 'sensing' ability, I have only been touched once by the spirit of a young girl who tugged at my shirt as I was cleaning a 'new' hotel, and to this day I find it hard to believe but want to believe despite the obvious logic. Cheers Ed! From dear old Blighty ~
