Anything by M Scott Peck MD is good for those interested in the non-human side of things.  he is a Psychaitrist who did his own search of people whom he felt  had some evil presence around or in them.

Another  really good one is Dr Suess's guide to ghosthunting,.."Horton hears an EVP".

I simply cannot put it down.

While I know they aren't exactly liked around here I still must suggest this book. It's from Dr. Dave Oester and Dr. Sharon Gill founders of the IGHS. They have book called Haunted America Speaks Vol. 1. It is quite good.

Do fiction books count? Is so, Who is Frances Rain? by Margaret Buffie is a really good one. It's a neat story, and definitely worth the read.

As for non-fiction, my friend gave me "More Ghost Stories of Alberta" by Barbara Smith for my birthday last year and I've taken out other books by her from the library (Ontario Ghost Stories, Canadian Ghost Stories, etc).

I'll definitely be checking out some of the other books mentioned from the library! That is, if the library has them.

In ohio, we have the Haunted Ohio books, which is a set of three and talks about all kinds of ohio places that are haunted-much more than I thought!

I also read this book, called House of Leaves, in high school and it blew my mind! I don't remember the author but it was written in a artistic form and was a diary of a group of people (or maybe just a couple) who lived in this creepy house. They describe all the events that happen to them (I think someone -maybe a child- gets trapped in the walls! and the house always changes-it can get bigger and smaller at will!)

Their terror, curiosity and even madness are reflected well because the author moves the words of the story around on the pages (for example, on on page the wirting becomes smaller and smaller as the person describes how the house is getting smaller) Really, really fascinating book. A definite recommendation.

If I can think of more, I will write again- I LOVE reading so I'm sure my memory will begin to jog here soon.

Mark Z. Danielewski is the author of House of Leaves.
I also love love love the book (it is fiction, btw) but just wanted to throw out a warning that it wouldn't be appropriate for some of our younger readers - if I remember correctly there's a couple of pretty graphic naughty scenes in it.

The story is actually about a guy, reading a bunch of research/diary that an old man did about a family that lived in a house that kept changing size with doors that shouldn't by any right go anywhere, but they do.  So you have 3 different viewpoints going on in the book at times, and that layering aspect is very interesting.

I bought some books not too long ago and they are awesome!

-"Fear: A Ghost Hunter's Story" by Kriss Stephens
-"The Ghost Hunter's Guidebook (or Handbook)" by Troy Taylor
-"More Ghostly Tales From Minnesota" by Ruth D. Hein
-"Hauntings & Poltergeists: A Ghost Hunter's Guide" by Loyd Auerbach

There are a few more I'd like to get, although I do have 80 books on ghosts and hauntings already.  And FYI, no, I am not obsessed.  I'm just curious. cool.gif
