I just finished reading "Ghosts I've Met" a week or so ago, and found it pretty entertaining.

I read a pretty good one recently, one of my first ghost books in fact.  'Ghost: A Firsthand Account' by Katherine Ramsland.  Basically her experiences of getting into paranormal investigation.  It's really fascinating.  At times I was really creeped out, but I couldn't stop myself! laugh.gif

I've started reading Leslie Rules' Ghosts Coast to Coast, but I've been taking my time with it.  I know it should be a quick read, but it keeps giving me the heebie jeebies.   blush.gif

It's so good to have all these recommendations!  Now if only my local bookstore would carry more books about the paranormal.  Guess I'll have to start looking into Amazon.

I have only read one book by Katherine Ramsland, and I did not like it at all. It seemed more about her work with vampires than it did about ghosts, which was the title of the book, Ghost Investigating the Other side

I think it's the same book.  To best of my knowledge she only has one book on ghosts.  I only remember the vampire bit in the first few chapters, but it was important because some of the events from her investigation in vampires let to her investigation of ghosts.  After that, it was purely ghost investigation.  Unless I'm completely off my rocker.  (which is entirely possible)

In the one I read she is constantly being follwed by a vampire she met and has something that belongs to him and it seems she keeps dwelling on the vampire case and the guy and really does not mention investigating the paranormal as much as a title like that would indicate.

I'm about halfway through the book in question, and in my opinion its almost entirely related to the Paranormal so far. She does mention the "Vampire", but from that point on she focuses on investigating several haunted locations, while attempting to learn more about the ring the "Vampire" gave her.

Maybe I'm just still too new to the subject, I didn't have any particular expectations for it.  I know very little about paranormal investigations.

Edit: Just saw ODC's post.  Now I'm confused.   blink.gif Is she doing serious paranormal investigation or no?  I mean, I kinda thought the whole thing with the ring was entirely a paranormal pursuit.


Help!  ermm.gif

she does but the purpose of the book is the ring, sje keeps returning to it. If you really want disappointment check the pictures in the book. Even at locations she makes it about the ring in question.

The pictures were rather disappointing, but I think the majority of her research took place quite a few years ago. If I remember right the copyright on the book is 2001, and we know a little more about orbs and various other anomalies now than we did then.

I guess I can see why you were turned off by it.  I'll admit, the ring did get a little boring.  

As for the pictures, I wasn't that impressed with them either.  Orbs are boring, too likely to be something else. tongue.gif

I guess what appealed to me the most was the whole learning process.  It was exciting.

Thanks for the different points of view though!  Helps my learning process. happy.gif

I'm currently reading "Phantom Army of the Civil War and other Southern Ghost Stories." All of the stories are from the files of FATE magazine, and it's pretty entertaining. Not much serious ghost-hunting, mostly eye-witness accounts.

I have to agree with LordRaven2000 that anything by Lloyd Auerbach is wonderful (I actually got to meet him when he came to Georgia Southern! I was so excited!)

Hans Holzer is pretty entertaining, but I've heard tales that cause me to question him.

Still at Southern? If so, Hello neighbor! I'm right up the road in Waynesboro.
