Ghosts and Hauntings
This is a searching book.
It asks DO ghosts really exist? If so, just what ARE they?
And it presents a number of conjectures and much eye-witness evidence.
Ghosts... "Do they exist wholly in the mind of the percipient or have they seperate existence?" asks Mr. Bardens. "Why do some people see ghosts and others never at all? How is it that 'psychic' or paranormal phenomena occur at different times, in the same place, to quite different people having no contact with the other? How is it that ghosts appear almost invariably to be clothed (only one nude ghost figures in this book)? And why period dress? Common sense dictates that clothes wear out even in--assuming there (to be) such a place--the 'spirit world'."
In his exploration of the question--or world--of ghosts, the author dips into many areas: poltergeists, harbingers of death, haunted houses, haunted furniture, ghostly animals, ghostly lights and sounds, random unexplainable phenomena.
In this book, which LIBRARY JOURNAL called "a fascinating narative," you will find true stories of extra-physical experiences in the lives of a wide range of witnesses, including the author himself, whose inquiry into the nature of these strange phenomena, though it may not yield definitive answers, it is timely and serious excusions that is both stimilating and entertaining.
