In this seventh book in his series on the supernatural—the popularity of which mounts with each new title—Dr. Ashley takes us into the world of the dead and the "undead." You will read about hauntings from the departed who have returned to poltergeists who fling objects and persecute the living. This book will entertain with its range of stories—for the believer and skeptic alike. It will impress you with its wide scope of research on the subject. As always, Leonard R. N. Ashley combines popular and academic research to provide a broad portrait of ghosts and poltergeists in our culture. This book also serves as an anthology to rare ghost stories dating back centuries.
