The new book is here!

The Encyclopedia of Haunted Places: Ghostly Locales from Around the World is a true first for the field of supernatural research. Not only does the book include photographs, eyewitness accounts, and investigation research notes from hundreds of haunted locations from around the globe, it's also the first book to be written by the local paranormal investigators who know these locations best.

I'm proud to have been the editor and compiler of this massive book. Scores of the world's leading investigators wrote about the history and ghosts from some of their favorite haunts, and the result is a directory that can serve as a haunted travel guide, a book of ghost encounters, and in the back is a region-by-region directory including contact information for paranormal investigators from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, the Far East, and Australia. Inside, there are interviews with some of the most renowned ghost investigators including: Dr. Hans Holzer, Ed and Lorraine Warren, Troy Taylor, and Loyd Auerbach.

Use this forum to discuss the locations and the haunts and ask questions of some of the many contributors.

Thanks, folks!

Here's a bit more of a preview: There are about 250 locations covered in this book and about 100 photos contributed by dozens of various paranormal investigators from all over the globe. It's really quite a book (not that I'm partial) considering so many investigators are now on the same pages.

Picked up a copy at Waldenbooks. Very exciting. It really is a beautiful book and full of wonderful information. You really out did yourself on this one Jeff. Kudos! I was happy to be a part of it before hand, but to actually see the thing really lights the fire. Fantastic... I'll try to do my part to make sure sure the sales skyrocket...
