In Time for Halloween, Jeff Belanger Visits The World's Most Haunted Places

Second edition of Belanger's top-selling book hits bookstores everywhere covering history, folklore, and true ghost encounters from historically significant locations.

BOSTON, MA September 16, 2011 - In 2004, Jeff Belanger's book publishing career began with The World's Most Haunted Places. Since then, the paranormal researcher, lecturer, and talk show host has gone on to produce over a dozen books that have been published in six languages, and he's become one of the world's foremost authorities on the unexplained.

Now in its second edition, Belanger revisits some of the most famous haunts with updates, new first-hand accounts, information, and commentary. Plus he's added new chapters and new locations.

Belanger's books have been used to plan haunted vacations, in the classroom as a unique way to teach history, and as a popular culture reference on why society is enamored with ghosts and the paranormal. The World's Most Haunted Places, Revised Edition offers a global view of the ghost phenomenon.

"Ghost encounters and legends are deeply personal," said Jeff Belanger. "Communities embrace their local haunts and only open up about them with those they trust. By studying the history and folklore of some of our most treasured historical places, we gain insight into who these ghosts may have been in life, and why they may still be hanging around. It's important that we listen to the history, the witnesses, and even the ghosts!" The World's Most Haunted Places is a world tour of historic locations and ghostly experiences. Inside, readers traverse the globe and find some common threads to ghostly legends and some figures from history who have insisted on being remembered to the point where they are still seen and recognized for who they are/were. Witnesses from many different walks of life recount what they felt, heard, saw, and sometimes even smelled. Locations covered include: Muncaster Castle in England, Monte Cristo Homestead in Australia, Ballygally Castle in Ireland, Suicide Forest in Japan, Poveglia Island in Italy, the White House in Washington D.C., the Whaley House in California, Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky, and many others.
