Varla Ventura, Coast to Coast favorite, Weird News blogger on Huffington Post, and author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces Weiser Books’ new Collection of forgotten occult classics. Paranormal Parlor is an eerie assemblage of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s sixth sense for tales of the weird and unusual.
Should you find yourself walking beneath the silvery branches of an orchard on a fine late Summer afternoon, you may hear, among the birds tweets and the rustling wind, a haunting melody. This tune, most likely an old French love ballad, might take hold of your heart and mind in a way you've never known. If this should happen, you have two choices. You can run screaming away, terrified of the paranormal encounter you have unwittingly stumbled into, or you can stay and meet the specter behind the song.
