Poltergeist activity, demonic possession and an Anglican Exorcism that went horribly wrong …
Taken from documentation written at the time, this novel – set between 1988 and 1993 – revolves around one woman’s struggle against poltergeist activity, demonic possession and ultimate Exorcism at her home in the quaint English village of Slapton, Buckinghamshire.
It is unknown how the demonic spirit came to be at the cottage, but its presence resulted in a battle ensuing between God and Satan as they waged war for souls.
Finding herself caught in the middle and desperate for salvation from the evil spirit and ghosts which resided with her, Joanna turned to the Church for help, only to discover that the Exorcist appointed for the task would be less than accommodating.

It may be considered wrong and a bit biased for me to review a book that I’ve contributed to, but I’ll do my best to stick with the facts and not pat myself on the back too much for my contribution and tell you that it was the best part of the book.
Truthfully my ego is not that inflated as this once again is yet another book that long time paranormal researcher and publisher Timothy Green Beckley has rescued from the out-of-print status bin and revived new life into the works of many previous authors, and so like the proverbial phoenix their works once again rise from the ashes and live on! Tim is fond of rescuing many such great works by authors who, in their day, contributed important pioneering works that still contain many relevant and noteworthy insights for us today. W. Raymond Drake was a British historian who years before Erich von Daniken’s popular 1968 classic Chariots …

After thirty years of keeping this story strictly to ourselves, the Perron family has finally divulged a closely-guarded secret. The saga has been released to the public in the form of a trilogy. It is a collective memoir; one that chronicles the numerous events which occurred in our home between 1970 and 1980.
Volume One of “House of Darkness House of Light” is the supernatural tale of seven mortals who moved into an ancient farmhouse in Harrisville, R.I. We inadvertently embarked upon an extraordinary journey of spiritual enlightenment then left the farm a decade later, each fundamentally changed and absolutely certain that there is some form of existence beyond this realm.
Ed and Lorraine Warren became involved, investigating the haunting in the mid 70s, unleashing an unholy entity during a seance gone horribly wrong. The Warrens spoke often of their encounter, describing the Perron haunting as one of the most profound and compelling of their famous career as …

Young Grady Haines had sat by his ailing father’s bed side almost all day, every day, for more than a month; holding his hands, helping him eat his meals, engaging him in conversation on the days he could talk. Those days were becoming less with the passing of time. This was quite a task for young Grady, something an eight year old boy should never have to …

Lately I have been reading a book about poltergeists. It is titled The Poltergeist Phenomenon an In-Depth Investigation Into Floating Beds, Smashing Glass, and Other Unexplained Disturbances.
If you are interested in learning about poltergeists this is one of the best books you will find on the subject. It is full of case studies and interviews about various poltergeist activity.
One story/case I thought was very interesting was referred to as The Demon of Olive Hill.
In Olive Hill, Kentucky two paranormal investigators saw objects being levitated in a home. The family who lived there wouldn’t allow the researchers to stay because they feared that they had brought demons along with them.
The story began in 1968 at the home of John and Ora Callihan in Olive Hill.
“One day in late November, the family reported strange rumblings in the house. Glass shattered in a picture of Jesus and furniture moved… From then on about 200 incidents were …

The Witches’ Almanac was first published in 1971.

Read about Uzume, Goddess of holy hilarity; Orisha Oko, Divinity of the earth’s fruits, Celtic magic cauldrons and how Roman families bid farewell to their dead.

Ever since I was a child I have always been fascinated by subjects like ancient Egypt and Atlantis. But it always seemed like these places and events were always far away, generally on the other side of the world. America was a newer place and had seen much less history but there were no mysteries, enigmas, or great legends other than those of the Native Americans. For all we knew the land was nothing but wild animals until the native peoples arrived.
As I grew and I read more and more about the world around us I began to discover that America was much older than I had imagined. I read about strange stone formations and structures, artifacts, myths, ancient peoples, and even mummies that all seemed out of place among what was known about America. As the years went by I read as many books as I could on the subject. In recent years there have been …

Man-Made Monsters: A Field Guide to Golems, Patchwork Solders, Homunculi, and Other Created Creatures
Book Review by the CareTaker
Many of the fears that most of faced as children involved “things” like ghosts and monsters. Some of the scariest creatures imagined were more likely to be thought of as creations of humans rather than being of supernatural origin. Even still, a creature such as a golem or a “Frankenstein’s Monster” is very often thought of as being demonic or “of the Devil”. The idea was that such constructs could not have a soul from God therefore the life they feigned must have come from something evil.
Man-Made Monsters is full of interesting information and tidbits about the monsters that have been created by mankind ~ at least in our minds, myths and lore. I am sure there are those who believe the story of the so-called Frankenstein monster was based more in truth than others. And perhaps there was more …

Ghostly Locales From Around The World
Here is another really good reference book for those who are interested in the paranormal. This book is a directory of well known purportedly haunted places all around the world. The table of contents divides each area of the globe into sections and the index lists all the haunted locations in alphabetical order so it is very easy to find information about a particular area or a specific place.
Stephen Wagner of paranormal.about.com says The Encyclopedia Of Haunted Places: Ghostly Locales From Around The World is “an excellent reference work for any ghost enthusiast’s bookshelf.”
The copy I have is the revised edition which has been updated to include dozens more haunted places as well as some new information on the locales that were already in the previous edition.
Also worthy of note is a new section that deals with what to look for in a paranormal investigator and a regional directory of paranormal …

A Field Guide to the Creatures that Cannot Rest in Peace
Recently I have been reading a really cool book written by Dr. Bob Curran and titled Encyclopedia of the Undead. This book is 312 pages with all sorts of information about “things” like Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, Voodoo, Ghouls, Golems and other nightmarish creatures and entities.
One thing I really like about the Encyclopedia of the Undead is the index. A good reference book must have a thorough index and this one does.
Whether you are doing research on a particular culture’s myths, legends and stories about creatures like this or you just want to read a good book this one fits the bill. I don’t get as much time to read as I would like to and I usually have bookmarks stuck in several different books at once but the Encyclopedia of the Undead was one I could hardly put down. I read it from cover to cover and …

Although it was long ago I can still remember the eerie feelings I sometimes got when I was sure that there was something under the bed. Sometimes I would lay as still as I could hoping that maybe “it” would not notice me. I would be as silent as possible so that if that thing did come out at me I would hear it and perhaps have a chance to get away.
Children have always been fascinated with (and often terrified of) the paranormal world. They wonder about such things as ghosts and monsters and other strange things. The paranormal is real and it has been shown that children are more attuned to “noticing” it than adults who have been desensitized.
I recently obtained a copy of a book titled There’s Something Under the Bed – Children’s Experiences With the Paranormal written by Ursula Bielski. If you are interested in learning about paranormal experiences of children because of your own …
