A Few Good Reads

January 15, 2009 on 8:00 am | In Article | No Comments

This year I have had many requests for books about ghosts and the paranormal. As I always say, the library is a great place to start. We try to keep a good selection of books on every subject. Hopefully the following books will give you the information you are looking for:

Ghostly Encounters: True Stories of America’s Haunted Inns and Hotels

by Frances Kermeen

A good night’s sleep is not guaranteed… There’s nothing like an old-fashioned bed-and-breakfast or inn for beautiful antique décor, delicious hearty meals, and luxury of times past. But the guest houses featured in this unique guide offer much more? Phantom servants watching from the upper floors, eerie footsteps echoing in hallways, and ghostly voices calling from the other side. Now Frances Kermeen, the former owner of “the most haunted house in America,” takes you on a one-of-a-kind tour of America’s most bewitched places to stay.

Feel the chills as you visit:

  • Rooms where women should not stay the night alone-unless they want a romantic encounter with a spectral lover.
  • The beautiful Key West Inn that’s terrorized by a doll with a ghastly chuckle.
  • A certain hall in a coastal California hotel where a female apparition calls enticingly to male guests through a door at night.
  • The Utah hotel where poltergeists torment the maids and frighten young schoolchildren.

Ghosts Among Us by Leslie Rule

Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, the stories of the supernatural in Ghosts Amoung Us: True Stories of Spirit Encounters will keep you riveted. Macabre and fascinating, Leslie Rule’s latest book offers true-life haunting accounts of eerie visitations and paranormal experiences along with artistically show black-and-white photographs of haunted sites. The personal firsthand reports and chilling full-length stories explore mysterious events across the country-from Nantucket Island to San Antonio to Hollywood-events that the reader will find hard to pass off as mere coincidences.

Leslie Rule, daughter of true-crime author Ann Rule, has had a lifelong fascination with the paranormal. Her previous writing success includes Coast to Coast Ghosts, two suspense novels, and more than fifty feature articles in national magazines. Her photography has appeared in the New York Times, and the Chicago Tribune, and Cosmopolitan.
