I currently have eight paranormal-themed books collecting dust on my shelf. Want to take one off my hands? Send an email to email@example.com (NOT THE COMMENTS SECTION!) with the following information: The book you’d like to receive and what sort of content you’d like to see more/less of on Ghosts and Ghouls.
It’s first come, first served, so the first person to request a book (with a suggestion) gets it. If you’re first, I’ll ask for your mailing address and then ship the book for free (sorry, U.S. only). If you’re not first, perhaps I can find a consolation book. Here’s what I’m giving away:
(CLAIMED) Science of Ghosts: Searching for Spirits of the Dead by Joe Nickell – “Are ghosts real? Are there truly haunted places, only haunted people, or both? And how can we know? Taking neither a credulous nor a dismissive approach, this first-of-its-kind book solves those perplexing mysteries and more—even answering the question of why we care so very much.” Read my review here!
(CLAIMED) Doctor to the Dead: Grotesque Legends and Folk Tales of Old Charleston by John Bennett – “Derived from African-American legends, these haunting fables have entertained generations of Charlestonians with their storytelling magic.”
(CLAIMED) The Haunted: One Family’s Nightmare by Robert Curran – “The harrowing true story of demonic attack and intimidation.”
Writing the Paranormal Novel: Techniques and Exercises for Weaving Supernatural Elements Into Your Story by Steven Harper – “This helpful guide gives you everything you need to successfully introduce supernatural elements into any story without shattering the believability of your fictional world or falling victim to common clichés.”
(CLAIMED) Haunted Houses U.S.A. by Dolores Riccio and Joan Bingham – “America’s most incredible haunting sites and their dramatic histories.”
(CLAIMED) Weird, Scary and Unusual – Stories and Facts by Armchair Reader – “Some of the creepiest, quirkiest, most curious collections of knowledge ever assembled.”
(CLAIMED) Unseen World: The Science, Theories, and Phenomena behind Events Paranormal by Reader’s Digest – “Explore a riveting collection of scientific theories, first-hand experiences, and spine-chilling stories that beg the question: Is there a parallel world that we can’t see?”
(CLAIMED) Mysteries of the Unknown by the editors of Time Life Books – “In this single volume, the editors of Time Life have collected their readers’ favorites, including some of the weird, eeriest, and most compelling tales.”
On a related note, does anyone have a paranormal-themed book recommendation?
