Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Netzley begins her discussion of haunted houses with the example of the Winchester House in San Jose, California, which is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Sarah Winchester, daughter-in-law of the inventor of the Winchester rifle. Sarah built the house to appease the spirits of those who were killed by the rifle, believing that if she did not do this, she would die. Describing the phenomena observed by various people at the Winchester House segues naturally into the rest of the book. The first two chapters discuss the different types of spirits: ghosts, apparitions, and poltergeists. The third chapter describes methods of communicating with spirits, such as automatic writing, seances, and ouija boards, and the fourth discusses various methods of investigating hauntings. Some of the ghostly presences are well known, such as in the story of the Amityville Horror; others less so, such as the haunting of the Borley Rectory in England. This book is written in a clear, rational tone. It is entertaining yet provide a lot of objective information that might be used in reports. Other titles in the series include Witches by Stuart A. Kallen, and The Curse of King Tut and UFOs by Netzley. All are well written and avoid sensationalism. Helpful indexes, source notes, and ideas for further reading are included in each. Index. Illus. Photos. Source Notes. Further Reading.

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-The first book traces the origins and development of witchcraft back to ancient goddess worship and healing herbalists. The text documents the subsequent demonization and persecution of witches in Christian Europe during the Middle Ages and during the Salem witch trials. Although Milton Meltzer's Witches and Witch-hunts (Scholastic, 1999) offers a more thorough history of the subject, Kallen's book devotes significant space to a discussion of the beliefs and practices of modern Wiccans. Haunted Houses gives only cursory attention to well-known apparitions and mysterious places such as Borley Rectory in England and the infamous house in Amityville, NY. Discussions of photographic techniques and fakery reveal Netzley's generally skeptical attitude toward the paranormal. Still, some poltergeist cases and the intensely investigated activities of medium Eileen Garrett are included as examples of possibly real phenomena. Chapter notes, annotated bibliographies, and detailed indexes make both volumes readily accessible resources on these often-examined subjects. Interesting sidebars and frequent black-and-white photos and reproductions add to the appeal of these straightforward series entries.-Ann G.
