Product description

The culmination of Brad Steiger's 50 years of paranormal research, this book is a bold telling of true ghost stories and firstperson encounters with the supernatural. Arranged topically, it covers every sort of ghost and haunting: poltergeists, shadow beings, and phantoms alongside haunted apartments, hotels, and trains. From ghosts that still haunt Ohio's State Reformatory, otherwise known as Shawshank, to Abe Lincoln's regular consultation with mediums, this compendium delves into the true scary stories from both historical documents and personal accounts. In its 30 chapters, spirits represented include the good ("Ghosts that Saved Lives"), the bad ("Invisible Home Wreckers"), and the ugly ("Demonic Spirits That Whisper Commands to Kill"). The book goes on to unearth the ghastly goingson and macabre manifestations at haunted places such as museums, churches, graveyards, restaurants, and sacred sites while also instructing how to perform a cleansing ritual to rid a home of unwanted spectral visitors. This second edition is updated to include new stories and compelling evidence of both the existence of ghosts and proof of hauntings that will entertain, induce chills, and make the doubtful believe.

Review quote

"Steiger has gathered some of the most compelling evidence for ghosts and hauntings ... an entertaining source of spine-tingling, late-night reading."-- "" "an extensive compilation of accounts that cover virtually every category of ghostly encounter and supernatural manifestation ... This book is easily recommended."-- "Alternate Perceptions Magazine" "Steiger, a ghosthunter and author of inspirational and paranormal books, relates about 200 ghost stories and first-person encounters with the supernatural."-- "Book News" "Whether or not you are inclined to believe in such things, the hundreds of stories make for fascinating reading, and many of the photographs are mesmerizing."-- "Cleveland Plain Dealer" "Everyone interested in our final destination, or just in need of a very creepy reading experience, should have a copy."-- "Fate" magazine "This heavy paperback is Steiger's expanded revision of the already huge edition of 2003. [H]e provides what is probably the most extensive introduction to the genre. There is so much here that even veteran pursuers of ghosts (whether by reading or investigating) are bound to find something new."-- "Fortean Times" "The book is filled with hundreds of stories about people's first-hand encounters at famed (and not so famed) locations. An impressive (and heavy) read that will provide years of ghost revelations. "Real Ghosts" has me convinced."-- "" "This excellent collection of ghost encounters will both warm the heart and scare you out of your wits."-- "Library Journal" "[This] is one of the most complete collections [of ghost stories] that I have seen."-- "Society for Paranormal Investigation"
