Ghost Hunter: The Groundbreaking Classic of Paranormal Investigation by Hans Holzer

Fifty years before The Conjuring, Paranormal State, Ghost Hunters, Insidious and Most Haunted, there was Hans Holzer—a man known as the “Father of the Paranormal.” Holzer pioneered ghost-hunting methods still used today, and brought ghosts and ghost hunting into popular culture in the second half of the twentieth century.

Ghost Hunter presented some of the first-ever case studies of haunting investigations, taken from Holzer’s own practice in the New York City area—ranging from Civil War-era spirits to the tormented ghosts of murder victims.

For devoted ghost-hunting aficionados curious about the practice’s history, there is no better place to start than the first book Hans Holzer wrote, Ghost Hunter. This is the classic 1963 book that launched his publishing career and gained him international fame.

The prestige edition of the classic, trail-blazing work on ghost hunting will intrigue new fans and longtime devotees alike—part of the new Tarcher Supernatural Library.  The first three titles released in Tarcher's Supernatural Library are Ghost Hunter (by Hans Holzer), Romance of Sorcery (by Sax Rohmer) and Isis in America (by Henry Steel Olcott).

Hans Holzer (1920-2009), the “Father of the Paranormal,” penned more than 140 books on ghosts, witchcraft, and other paranormal subjects--GHOST HUNTER was his first book and the one that launched his career and instilled his reputation. He was most famous for investigating the site of the Amityville Murders with the medium Ethel Johnson-Meyers in 1977.  His book , MURDER IN AMITYVILLE was adapted into the 1982 movie AMITYVILLE II: THE POSSESSION (and as an expert on this case, he recorded the audio commentary track for the classic 1979 film THE AMITYVILLE HORROR). He later wrote two more books on that subject: THE AMITYVILLE CURSE and THE SECRET OF AMITYVILLE). He was a consultant on Leonard Nimoy’s TV show, In Search of. . . . and a technical advisor on the second Dark Shadows movie, NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS.
