When Denice's 10 year old son, Michael, begins seeing strange objects he describes as light and dark shadows, no one believes him. But when objects levitate and people are locked in closets, they come to believe that their house is haunted. They try exorcisms and psychic detectives. Nothing helps. They move, but the demonic acts continue and become more and more dangerous. Then Denice realizes that it's not the house that's haunted; it's Michael.

Ghost Hunters: William James and the Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death is the story of a small group of scientists who launched a determined scientific investigation into the "unexplainable" incidences of clairvoyance and ghostly visitations that had suddenly become national obsessions. What began as a matter of curiosity became for the investigators an all-consuming, lifelong quest for evidence of the existence of the supernatural realm. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Deborah Blum uses her scientific insight and extraordinary storytelling skills to explore nothing less than the ever relevant nexus of science and religion, as it played out in the personal and professional lives of some of the greatest thinkers at the turn of the twentieth century.
The author of more than 40 books about history, hauntings and the unexplained in America, including Haunted Illinois, The Ghost Hunter’s Guidebook, Weird Illinois and many others. He is the founder and president of the “American Ghost Society”, a national network of ghost hunters that collects stories of ghost sightings and haunted houses and uses investigative techniques to track down evidence of the supernatural.

In cases when mysterious phenomena jar our understandings of the material world, the experts in paranormal research can provide astonishing explanations. A parapsychologist and paranormal investigator, the author of this volume plumbs 25 years of experience to create a personal and captivating account of events both common and uncommon to the field of paranormal research. Anecdotes and studies in this volume run the gamut from encounters with intelligent entities and imprints of past events to peculiar moving objects to those events that may seem paranormal but actually have common explanations. Major research centers and related resources are discussed, and advice is given on how to judge the credibility of self-professed ghost hunters.

What happens when we die? Does the light just go out and that's that--the million-year nap? Or will some part of my personality, my me-ness persist? What will that feel like? What will I do all day? Is there a place to plug in my lap-top?" In an attempt to find out, Mary Roach brings her tireless curiosity to bear on an array of contemporary and historical soul-searchers: scientists, schemers, engineers, mediums, all trying to prove (or disprove) that life goes on after we die. She begins the journey in rural India with a reincarnation researcher and ends up in a University of Virginia operating room where cardiologists have installed equipment near the ceiling to study out-of-body near-death experiences. Along the way, she enrolls in an English medium school, gets electromagnetically haunted at a university in Ontario, and visits a Duke University professor with a plan to weigh the consciousness of a leech. Her historical wanderings unearth soul-seeking philosophers who rummaged through cadavers and calves' heads, a North Carolina lawsuit that established legal precedence for ghosts, and the last surviving sample of "ectoplasm" in a Cambridge University archive.
