Faces at the Window isn’t the usual collection of rehashed New England ghost tales, half-legends and spooky sketches. It’s the real thing, told by an author who actually experienced most of the cases in this book — and even photographed them. On the rare occasions when he wasn’t an eyewitness, he uses first-hand sources, reliable press accounts and even government documents. Paul F. Eno is the ultimate storyteller. His breezy style, sympathetic treatment, wry wit and careful research will make you feel you’re actually at his side, working through some of the 20th century’s scariest, most remarkable cases of the paranormal in New England. And don’t open those curtains until daylight!

What a wonderful book, Paul Eno sure knows how to tell a story, He starts off his stories with a slow tapping and follows up with a big bang, I have not forgotten one story in this book, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read First hand accounts of Paranormal phenomena, From poltergeist¿s to Vampires its all here¿ A must have for the paranormal genre collector¿ This is the real thing¿. No fiction here¿
I found this to be an intelligent, engaging and scientific account of topics which usually don't get that treatment from authors. Mr. Eno's book is an enjoyable and highly readable look at phenomena ranging from poltergeists, ghosts, vanishing ships and ouija boards. But he goes much further than the standard 'campfire ghost story' format I've read before. He actually gives each an objective and scientific analysis that is as refreshing as it is unusual. His account of Bara-Hack, the 'Village of Voices', brings to mind another group whose trip into the woods and experience with paranormal activity recently made for a great movie. But the similarities to the Blair Witch Project end there, partly because this isn't fiction: he actually did experience paranormal activities, and you can tell that it was real from the power of his writing. His participation in these stories clearly makes a difference, and it makes for a great book.
