Ghost Hunting : True Stories of Unexplained Phenomena from The Atlantic Paranormal Society
Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, heads of The Atlantic Paranormal Society, are plumbers by day and paranormal investigators by night. They are 'sensitives', people who can sense otherworldly phenomena that others can't. They combine their unique abilities with a healthy dose of skepticism in the Sci Fi Channel's #1 hit show, Ghost Hunters. Ghost Huntingis an in-depth look at a number of Hawes and Wilson's most memorable investigations, some of which appeared on the show, and many of which did not. Hawes and Wilson travel across America visiting residences and public places both famous and mundane to determine whether they are really haunted. Unlike most paranormal investigators, Hawes and Wilson don't charge a fee for their services, and have no vested interest in finding a ghost. They set out to disprove a haunting, under the philosophy that if you try to prove supernatural phenomena, you can find evidence in almost anything. In this way, they uncover a number of false hauntings, attributable to everything from bad plumbing to outright hoaxes. But they also discover a number of genuinely haunted places using high-tech tools and rigorous scientific methods. With the help of veteran writer Michael Jan Friedman, Ghost Huntingassembles the very best of Hawes and Wilson's experiences - with fascinating, amusing, and sometimes frightening results.
