Ghostology: A True Revelation of Spirits, Ghouls, and Hauntings

Lucinda Curtle (Author) Dugald Steer (Author)
& 2 more


Just in time for Halloween! Find sundry novelties, flaps, facsimiles, and more in a haunting--or is it haunted?--volume that gives new meaning to the term ghost writer.

Have you been hearing strange footsteps and knocks, whispers and rattling chains? Perhaps the early-twentieth-century author of this newly discovered tome has some secrets to share. Within the book's weathered pages you'll hear of a headless French pirate in search of his missing noggin, a vanishing pair of young trickster twins, a ghostly woman who screams for attention, and other communications from the "fun side." Readers who wish to plumb the mysteries of the paranormal will find some hands-on challenges to lift their spirits, along with tips on a range of spectral subjects, such as what to pack in a ghostologist's field kit, how to distinguish the types of ghosts, the best ways to hunt them, and spotting the unfortunate fakes and frauds. Too bad the late author never got to see her guide find its way into the world! But wait--what are those strange and scratchy asides that appear in odd places throughout the book?
