Ghost hunting : true stories of unexplained phenomena from the Atlantic Paranormal Society by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson with Michael Jan Friedman.
I used to live in a house that had “activity.” You know what I mean. Lights would turn themselves on at 3:00 a.m., the washing machine would start and stop on its own, objects would disappear. Not really frightening, just mildly irritating. The house’s previous occupant was found dead in the basement under questionable circumstances. Was his restless spirit playing with the lights and laundry? Who knows. As long as his disembodied voice wasn’t issuing dire threats from my morning coffee I didn’t really care.
Ghost hunting : true stories of unexplained phenomena from the Atlantic Paranormal Society will be self recommending to all fans of Ghost Hunters, the popular show on the Sci-Fi Network.
If you’ve never seen the show, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson are the founders of T.A.P.S., The Atlantic Paranormal Society. T.A.P.S. scientifically investigates locations that are haunted. They begin their investigations by trying to recreate and debunk the activity and use technology to find good evidence either for or against the paranormal.
This book recounts some early T.A.P.S. cases not included in the show and continues through recent seasons. Some of the early cases are quite disturbing, as in full body apparitions, heavy furniture moving, and the expected paranormal results of playing with ouija boards. (A very bad idea!)
Whether or not you believe in the paranormal, this is a fun and creepy read. And if you’ve never seen the show and would like to, the library has copies of it on DVD.
