About the Author
Grant Wilson, along with Jason Hawes, heads up TAPS, The Atlantic Paranormal Society. Plumbers by trade, Hawes and Grant are interested in getting to the bottom of everyday, paranormal occurrences. It has been more than a decade since Jason and Grant first met, and since then TAPS has grown in size and scope to become one of the most respected paranormal-investigation groups in America.
Michael Jan Friedman is the author of nearly sixty books of fiction and nonfiction, more than half of which bear the name Star Trek or some variation thereof. Ten of his titles have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. He has also written for network and cable television, radio, and comic books, the Star Trek: Voyager® episode “Resistance” prominent among his credits. On those rare occasions when he visits the real world, Friedman lives on Long Island with his wife and two sons.

When I found the show a few years ago I was gratified at the objectivity these guys and their crew displayed and the way they came at the cases, first attempting to debunk the claims of their clients as opposed to most who seem to see paranormal activity everywhere.
I have seen and read others attempts to discredit Jason and Grants evidence saying most is hoaxed so as to boost ratings, I took much of this with a grain of salt. After all the team has been very succesfull on their television program, so some jealous negativity is expected to come their way. On to the book:
I read Jason and Grants first book and enjoyed it immensly, but this second has caused me to rethink their entire group and the authenticity of TAPs as well as their claims. I dont take this position lightly, again I have watched, and continue to watch every show the Ghost Hunters put out.
Reading this second book has me wondering how they were able to document the amazing claims on video that these cases present, while having such minor (in comparison) evidence show up on their tv program.
This second book tells of the following Paranormal activities caught on tape: Small black figures stacking furniture at a clients home. A large menacing black mass hovering over the team for minutes while the cameras are rolling. Objects caught on tape it seems at every investigation moving around by itself.Read more ›
There are a lot of good things about this book that were improvements over the last book. All of the cases are cases not seen on Ghost Hunters. That's a big plus. The cases were new to us, and they were a very interesting read. Jay and Grant both cases where they had evidence of ghosts, and cases they debunked. After all, not every house they come to is haunted. The cases ranged from some that really broke my heart to cases that made me laugh out loud. All's I'll say is that on one of the cases, a guy was having a **really** good time. It was really neat to see how Jay and Grant debunked some of the cases. Some of the debunking cases, I'd like to have seen on the show, but they didn't have the show back then.
I also liked how Grant told us of his first real paranormal experience. I don't want to say to much of it here because I don't want to spoil it, but man, it was an interesting read. I wish him the best of luck on it. (You have to read that part of the book to know what I mean.)
It was also interesting to see how Jay and Grant first met Krysten and Steve.
I also like that part at the end of each chapter entitled, "Ghost Hunter's Manual" This is the part were they tell tips of Ghost Hunting to people just starting out in the paranormal field. It was a really nice touch.
For me, the book feel short in some places. One of the biggest places it fell short for me is the use of the word "globules". We all know how they feel about orbs, and I'm glad they feel the way they do about them. For me, the problem is that Grant said how globules are signs of the paranormal.Read more ›
Consequently, I doubt its any surprise that I LOVE "Seeking Spirits" in which Grant and Jason share memories of their early cases as paranormal investigators. Each case is engaging, fascinating, suspenseful and (at times) frightening. Each case is told in such a way you almost feel like they are talking to you personally.Read more ›
