Communicating with the Dead... Truth or Hoax?

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ, May 2005 In Communicating with the Dead (New Page Books 2005), you will accompany author Jeff Belanger as he explores the many methods and techniques devised to find proof of an afterlife. Some of the people and inventions will surprise you; others you may find simply astonishing, but always there is the intrigue. Do you want evidence that proves spiritual existence? Or do you seek to disprove? Are you a believer or a skeptic? Belanger is neither. His quest is to find the facts and search out the truth.

For many thousands of years people have endeavored to communicate with the spirit world. Over those centuries many tools have been developed, altered or acquired for use in contacting the departed. Communicating with the Dead presents Belangers search through history, science, religion or wherever devices have been used to establish communication with the dead. He speaks with scientists, clergy, psychologists, psychics, device manufacturers and many users of mediumistic tools and techniques. Together you will see how and why each was used and the results obtained. You will try each device and uncover evidence. If there is a scientific explanation, it is explained. If it is a hoax, it is revealed. If it is a mystery... you are the judge. Here are a few topics you will explore:

Talking Boards * Ouija Board * Tarot Cards * Dowsing Rods * Automatic Writing * Runes * Spirit Photography * Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) * Mirror Gazing * Video ITC Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC) * Spiricom, Walkie-talkie to the beyond * Computer contact Thomas Edisons invention * and more

Plus has audio, video and image samples of phenomena discussed in the book (Belanger is the founder of, the largest supernatural site on the net.)
