The sections were written with some attention to detail, and a few of the stories (Sounds of the Deep, Alcatraz, Rasputin) were thought-provoking, at least for me. The Ghostly Goings-on section was the most diverse in terms of cases and potential explanations. However, other sections (Psychics in particular) were presented in a way that lacked excitement and diversity.
