New Orleans is haunted. Its rich culture and stormy history make the city a haven for supernatural activity. Based on a six-year scientific study by the International Society for Paranormal Research (ISPR), this book separates facts from folklore and local legends, taking the reader on a fascinating trip through more than 25 different haunted properties. Spend a night in the Bourbon-Orleans Hotel, where there are many guests besides the ones on the registry. Stop by O’Flaherty’s Irish Channel Pub, and find out why there are security bars on the third floor windows. Step aboard light aircraft carrier USS Cabot to encounter crew members who were lost years ago in a kamikaze attack.
In addition to the thrill and suspense of the profiles themselves, this book is a firsthand account of paranormal research. ISPR, founded in 1972, is an internationally renowned organization devoted to the study of ghosts and the paranormal. The group has investigated properties worldwide, often with amazing results. With these expert guides, prepare for a fabulous tour of a spectacular city!

I bought The Ghosts of New Orleans before I went to New Orleans for a convention in May along with two other books on New Orleans hauntings. The Ghosts of New Orleans was the best and you can tell it was the original and the info comes from the International Society For Paranormal Research (in fact, it appears that the info in the other books also come from the International Society For Paranormal Research too). While in New Orleans, I found out that there's also an Official Paranormal Guide app and that was great 'cause the app covered 3x the properties! I downloaded at iTunes and went into almost a dozen haunted properties but my trip was over before I could visit them all - there's like 60 properties! But I'm going back next year to see how many more haunted properties I can investigate!
