Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This excellent collection of ghost encounters will both warm the heart and scare you out of your wits. Steiger (The Source: Journey Through the Unexplained) has been a psychical researcher for nearly 50 years and appears regularly on television and radio programs. This is a collection of his personal accounts as well as his associates' experiences and stories collected from credible web sites for paranormal researchers. While the experiences make for interesting reading, the sheer number may become daunting if read straight through. Readers who enjoy books by John Edward (Hello from Heaven) or James Van Praagh (Talking to Heaven) will enjoy the feel-good selections in the chapter on ghosts that bid farewell, while spooky-movie fans will enjoy the haunted house tales. Excellent appendixes list haunted places in North America, ghost hunters to contact, and a filmography of the best Hollywood movies in the genre. Photographs throughout enhance the appeal. Good for any collection where the paranormal is popular, this is also an outstanding choice for those who like short stories and possibly for those hard-to-choose-for teens.-Jennifer Kuncken, Williamsburg Regional Lib., VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
