A seminal, investigative look at ghost sightings from the British politician, author, and Council of the Society for Psychical Research member.
A wide collection of the most well attested cases of apparitions and haunted houses collected by the Society for Psychical Research. There are a number of well-authenticated narratives—some from private sources, and some that reached Sir Ernest after his BBC Broadcast, given under the title of this book in 1934.
Apparitions and Haunted Houses is part of The Paranormal, a series that resurrects rare titles, classic publications, and out-of-print texts, as well as publishes new supernatural and otherworldly ebooks for the digital age. The series includes a range of paranormal subjects from angels, fairies, and UFOs to near-death experiences, vampires, ghosts, and witchcraft.
“Folk motifs and ghostly superstitions are scattered liberally throughout the informants’ tales, making this work a valuable comparative tool for field collectors of ghostlore.” —Folklore Forum
