Encyclopedia Of Haunted Places

Whether it’s a friendly ghost like Ruth Wooster of the Carousel Gardens Restaurant, leaving coins for her favourite patrons (page 49), or Lincoln’s ghost, walking the halls of the White House (page 98), if it’s a ghost, this book has it.

The Encyclopedia of Haunted Places has over 270 documented “Ghostly Encounters” from all over the world. Written in encyclopedic format, this book starts off with a bit of history of the “presence” (i.e., what happened to the person, the location the ghost inhabits, and the strange phenomena still occurring today). In addition, the book gives the addresses of all the locations as well as pictures, some of which are even of the “ghosts” themselves.

Think you have a ghost? Who are you gonna call? The Encyclopedia of Haunted Places also gives profiles of some of the leading paranormal investigators as well as a directory of paranormal investigators from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, Central America, Asia, and South Africa.

However, you don’t have to have a ghost to read this fascinating book. The shocking stories and eyewitness accounts of floating orbs, cold spots, footsteps, slamming doors, and being touched when no one else is around are enough to run shivers down the spines of even the steeliest of folks. And with Halloween right around the corner, this book would make the perfect “late night ghost story” read . . . if you dare.

Encyclopedia of Haunted Places: Revised Edition (EAN 978-1-60163-799-8, pages: 360, price: $19.99) has been published by New Page Books. The book is available at Barnes & Noble, Borders,, and many other booksellers.
