Encyclopedia of Haunted Places was the first directory of its kind to be written by dozens of the world’s leading paranormal investigators. Research notes, location background, firsthand accounts, interviews with leading paranormal researchers, and many anomalous photographs featuring ghostly manifestations comprise the hundreds of haunted listings in this directory.
Now in its second edition, the Encyclopedia of Haunted Places has been updated with dozens of new listings, new information on existing haunts, and a comprehensive directory of paranormal investigators.
For years, paranormal investigative groups have been studying their local ghosts using scientific equipment, psychics, and séances. This directory is a repository of some of their most profound cases.
From across the United States and Canada, and from many spots around the globe, ghost investigators tell of their sometimes harrowing experiences, share their research, and give readers an overview of both well-known and obscure haunted locales. From private residences to inns and restaurants, battlefields to museums and libraries, and graveyards to churches, Encyclopedia of Haunted Places offers supernatural tourists a guide to points of interest through the eyes of the world’s leading ghost hunters.
