Overview

Captivating true accounts of the paranormal from all over the world

Do you believe in ghosts? From incubi in Sumatra to exorcism in Sudan to spirits in our own backyard, The Dead Roam the Earth explores the fascinating variety—and uncanny similarity—of supernatural encounters in every corner of the planet, providing chilling accounts of real-life ghost sightings, haunted places, poltergeists, possessions, Mothmen, demons, witchcraft, ritualistic killings, and much more.

Could so many people in so many places just be imagining things? In addition to its wealth of testimonials from ordinary people witnessing extraordinary things, this engrossing book presents the latest scientific attempts to make sense of the supernatural—including how electronic equipment has revolutionized spiritual communication—and finds the devil in the details.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Alasdair Wickham's research into the paranormal began on a very person level. After the death of his parents, he moved into their home. It was haunted. That extremely vivid experience began what became a thirty-five-year pilgrimage into the supernatural. His new book The Dead Roam the Earth ventures into favored places of poltergeists, demons, witches, ritualistic killers, and things that go bump in the night. Perfect for dark, stormy night reading.
