I absolutely *LOVE* Ghost House books line of regional ghost stories. There are many titles to choose from, with some of my favorites being:
Ghost Stories or London - Edrick Thay
Victorian Ghost Stories-Jo-Anne Christensen
Haunted Highways- Dan Asfar
Another great read is Haunted Heartland - Beth Scott & Michael Norman.
So, what's your favorite ghostly read? Did you just finish something that we all should read? If so, feel free to add to the list!

Earthbound by Roger Coddington....he works with a medium and speaks directly to spirits in haunted locations, very good read.
Troy Taylor's books, depending on what your into he has a lot of books, he is very good....Haunted Alton and Beyond the Grave were good! I see he has another new one out, Abe Lincoln, the Haunted President, I would get that one, I like reading about him.
And IF IF! I had to recommend a Warren book it would be The Demonologist, because, when you get past the stuff thats meant to scare you, there is some really good information in there, and its very interesting....also pic of Amityville boy is in there.
I have to go home and scan my bookshelves, I am drawing a blank on the rest!
We are a part of nature, not apart.

He was the pioneer in NDE's and began researching them in the early 70's. He noticed a pattern in heart patients who would die and come back, and they would relate the same story over and over again. Out of curiousity, he began paying attention and researching it. He has other books that have followed too, but my favorite is "Life After Life".
It is also a very good book to give as a gift to anyone who has suffered the loss of a family member or friend.

I absolutely love this book. In my opinion, no ghost hunter/investigator should be without it. It's basically a list of numerous reported haunted locations from state to state. This book goes so far as to give addresses and driving directions to most, if not, all locations, as well as contact phone numbers. Simply put, if you don't have it, you need it. No worries for those that don't live in the U.S. There's also an international directory by the same man.
If I think of any other books that are worth reading, I will definitely post them here!

I simply cannot put it down.

Is that picture for real???? If so, that has to be one of the most disturbing pictures of a ghost that I have ever seen!! That little girl looks so lost! Poor little thing!! Nitelite, that looks like one book that is a must read! Thanks!

you know, I don't know about the cover - but some of the pics on the sight are...if you click the button (with the face or whatever) at the bottom - it takes you to the actual newspaper clippings and photos... when you read the book - you will see why she is lost... it's really good!
