Hi All!

I'm sure this has probably been covered some time in the past but we now have a lot of "new blood" and I am curious.  If it's here, sorry, i missed it!

My favorite paranormal book is "The Everything Ghost Book".  (at least right now).  The reason that I like it is that it gives many different peoples perspectives on many subjects concerning the paranormal! ;D

Anything by Hans Holzer. i love his books. I had read almost all of them. So I have no faves. But does he count as a fave author on the paranormal?

Favorite paranormal book, hmm, excellent question. I would have to go with "Amityville." Even though parts of the book were embellished and everyone except the Lutz's fought over it.

Right now it is the one I am reading it is The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by Rosemary Ellen Guiley. It covers everything from A to Z. Starting with Academy of Religion and Psychical Research ending with Zugun,Eleanor (1913-?) A Romanian poltergeist child who was studied by several psychical researchers.

Oh, it's the 2nd edition.

With such a diverse group as is represented here at GV I just knew there would be a wide range of titles that people would find to be their favorite!

Anyone else? ;D

Hey Brian, great idea!!! I have sooooo many but my favorites are the haunted ohio series by Chris Woodyard and my very first ghost book ever "The Enchanted World: Ghosts" by the editors of Time-Life Books (its a huge worn old book by now but the pictures and stories are still stunning) ;)

I love this book too and was trying to remember the author so I could reply to this topic. Thanks for that  ;D It's a very informative book isn't it? I'd love to get hold of the first edition though....
I also love the following:
-The poltergeist phenomenon by John & Anne Spencer
This is full of accounts of poltergeist cases with some photos. Fascinating read!
- The ghost that haunted itself by Jan Andrew Anderson
This is all about the Mackenzie poltergeist in Edinburgh, with frightening accounts from people who have visited the graveyard it's supposed to haunt.
-Haunted America by Michael Norman & Beth Scott
Being British I love to read about the ghosts over there, and this book is packed with different stories. I'd love to visit some of the places mentioned in this book!

Hi all!

I'm new here, but I wanted to mention my favorite ghost book (lately).  It's called "The Ghost Next Door: True Stories of Paranormal Encounters from Everyday People" by Mark Alan Morris.  I liked this book a lot because it tells about true ghostly encounters that happened to ordinary people.  All fresh material, too!  No recycled stories here.  I found it by typing in "ghost stories" on Amazon.com.  It came up as the most popular title, so I figured it had to be good!

No problem, Willow!

This is one of those kinds of books I love to read just before bedtime, or on a stormy evening.  I've read through it twice now.  I like the way the author sets up each story with some eerie commentary.  It reminds me of the way Rod Serling used to do it on the Twilight Zone!  Let me know what you think...

Hello, inaspin2!

Thanks for your input!  I think my favorite story from that book is "The Thing in the Cabin"...very creepy!  Actually gave me goosebumps!  I hear he's writing a sequel...   :o
