Most men, it is true, disbelieve in ghosts-unless they have had some experience to convince them to the contrary. Yet, after all, why should they? As Mr. W.T. Stead once remarked:
"Real Ghost Stories! How can there be real ghost stories when there are no real ghosts?
"But are there no real ghosts? You may not have seen one, but it does not follow that therefore they do not exist. How many of us have seen the microbe[...]".

Meet the Author

TRUE GHOST STORIES
BY
HEREWARD CARRINGTON

Author of "The Physical Phenomena of Spiritualism," "The Coming
Science," "Death: its Causes and Phenomena,"
"Death Deferred," etc.

Glossary of Terms Used

Agent-The person who, in thought-transference experiments, endeavors to impress his thoughts upon the "percipient" or "receiver."
Death-Coincidence-A case in which an apparition or other ghostly phenomenon has taken place, at the moment of the death of the person represented by the phantom.
Ghost-An apparition, a phantom. Some contend that all ghosts are "subjective" or purely mental (hallucinations); others that some ghosts are "objective"-that is, space-occupying entities, which exist apart from the seer, who sees them. These points will be found fully discussed in this book.
Hallucination-A mental experience, in which a phantom is seen, a voice heard, etc., when there is no real external cause for this seeing or hearing. Hallucinations are more complete than mere "illusions."
Pact-An agreement, entered into before death, between two persons, that, whichever one dies first, shall appear to the other one. These are here called "Pact Cases." [A Pact may also mean an agreement between a necromancer of[12] some spirit-intelligence, as in Magic; but the word is not used in that sense in this book.]

    Book Review - True Ghost Stories

    I found this book very interesting mostly because of the way the book is written. People don't really talk like that anymore so it really takes you back into the past and what they beleived in. Some of the stories or tales seemed a little dry, but back then, I am sure they were really scary. Not a bad book to read, especially since it is free. A great way to get to know your Nook!

    Plenty of ghost stories

    The approach here attempts to be more scientific, but it still uses a lot of the old ghost stories you'll come across in many of these collections of "true" ghost stories from the turn-of-the-century and earlier. This one, though, has many new ones, including some about reports of a ghostly St. George and his army helping the British in a battle in WWI, which I found fascinating. There's also a bibliography suggesting more books of ghost stories, both fictional and "real".
