Overview


 “Have you ever come home and wondered what might be lurking up the stairs, in the dark of the corridor where the lights don’t reach and the soft footfalls of the visitor disappear into the thick carpet?”
 

For more than five decades, Hans Holzer has been delving into disturbances from The Other Side. This Vienna-born researcher, the man they call “The Ghost Hunter,” has devoted much of his adult life to tracking those phantom presences that emerge from the shadows when least expected. Whether we call these spectral personages, “ghosts” or “spirits” or “left behinds,” they hover among us, defying easy explanation or dismissal.
 
No one in America has researched these ghostly beings more assiduously or skillfully than Holzer. Indeed, he has been lauded as the most published paranormal investigator of the past century. This collection contains some of his most famous and controversial cases. Houses of Horror takes us deep into history both known and obscure; we encounter accused traitor Aaron Burr and experience the postmortem rustlings of colonial spies. In New Hampshire, a nineteenth century admiral makes things go bump in the night; a girl ghost playfully leaves surprise gifts in an old Kentucky home; and in Illinois, a suicide moves restlessly from room to room.
 
Holzer’s explorations in the seemingly unexplainable have taken him far afield. He ventures down dark corridors in eerie New England mansions and sprawling Southern homes. His ghostly quarry surfaces in Minnesota, the rural Midwest heartland; even in Hollywood and on a moving Swiss train. Ever observant, patiently curious, Holzer jots down the cases and then moves on. This rich collection of hauntings can be read as an   extended glimpse into the life beyond life; the realm of the unknown.

I haven't finished reading Houses of Horror, but so far so good. I have a few of Han Holzer's books and I've thoroughly enjoyed each of them. If you like ghost stories and Hans Holzer, I recommend this read.
