Parapsychologist and paranormal investigator Loyd Auerbach and noted psychic Annette Martin investigated paranormal activity in the San Francisco Bay area. This book takes readers into six actively haunted places. The authors don’t just write about their experiences — they include actual transcripts of conversations with spirits. A primer on what ghosts are (and are not) and the do’s and don’ts of ghost hunting, this handy little guidebook also includes directions and a map. San Francisco is a beloved tourist destination, and this book provides another facet to its storied history. It’s almost like encountering a ghost yourself. — Alice R. Berntson, New Connexion Journal
Two of the premier professionals of our time have collaborated in a new series that covers cities and their haunted areas. The first of the series is The Ghost Detectives' Guide to Haunted San Francisco, and it is amazing! Noted psychic Annette Martin and famous paranormal investigator Lyod Auerbach have combined their talents to show the public the real 'hauntings'. Together they instruct the reader the differentiation between residual energy and actual spirit. This is important as the actions of the past can leave an imprint, or residual energy, rather than an actual spirit trying to communicate with us. They lead us to areas around San Francisco, and it is amazing - from the torture of Alcatraz, to the playful Blue Lady, whom you will fall in love with! The only negative thing I have about this book is, that it is too short! I look forward to more books about ghost detecting in Savannah, New Orleans, Atlanta, and other cities. This is the real deal! ellen george
