I have lots of favorites, too.  For fiction, Practical Magic is a great book.  The movie is good but the book is better.

The Everything Ghost Book is great too.  Its a good place for a novice ghosthunter to get started.

For fiction, I enjoyed "Ghost" by Noel Hynd.

I own a HUGE hardcover book by Holzer, simply titled "Ghosts". There are so many case studies I never tire of it.

Holly,

Another really good one is "I Never Believed in Ghosts Until..."

It's one of my all-time faves!

DW...I love your taste in books, 'The Ghost Next Door' was worth the time and effort in locating a copy...I Never Believed In Ghosts Until... is also one of my favorite books of all time along with 'True Ghost Stories' by Hans Holzer(but the 'GHOSTS' book that Holly was talking about is all his investigations and studies in one massive book)yet another book worth the read ;)
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing.

Hi inaspin2,

You can find GHOSTS by Hans Holzer on Amazon.com.  It's on Amazon.co.uk as well.  Hope this helps!

Daniel ;)

Overshadows - Richard Palmisano

This book contains an account of a huanting tat lasted several years (and I assume it still is).  There are so many fascinating components of this book, that it really makes you wonder about some of the theories you once held for the spirit realm.  I know that it has changed my view points drastically and has opened up a ton of thought.  A great book!
Is the art of life, living somewhere in between?

I really like the book "Out of the Dark" by Brad Steiger.  It's got a broad variety of supernatural occurences and beings, such as ghosts(obviously), demons, fairies, trolls, and stuff like that.  Great book.  Check it out sometime!
"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? Reality leaves a lot to the imagination"

I'm reading THE GHOST NEXT DOOR by Mark Alan Morris again!  It's just as creepy the second time around!   :o

I look forward to the evenings, when I can get comfortable under the covers and read ghost stories by the light of the lamp on my nightstand.  It's one of my favorite times of the day!

Don't know if you can really class this as a paranormal book as it's not about ghosts as such, but I LOVE it! I've just finished re-reading it for about the 15th time. Has anyone else on here read it? It's called 'Behind The Attic Wall' by Sylvia Cassedy. It's a very magical story. Don't want to give too much away about the story for those who haven't read it as it'd spoil it. Is it popular in USA? I first read it when I was about 9 and still have my original copy.

Right now it is the one I am reading it is The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by Rosemary Ellen Guiley.


I bought this book on your recommendation (don't you feel special?  ;)), and am in the process of reading it.  Interesting stuff, but not a terribly convincing book, in my opinion.

And out of curiosity, why would you want a first edition?  In my experience, later editions are usually better; things are added, corrections are made.

for me it is still Bramstocker's DRACULA! I can still feel the chills, the WILD imagination. mostly because of the circumstance I read that book! Still can "see" that chilling image of Count on the Black Hard Cover! :o
