I admit that I very rarely read non-fiction, so when I do, it has to be about a subject that really catches my notice. When PARANORMAL EXPERIENCES VOLUME ONE, published by New Age Dimensions Publishing, came up for grabs to be read and reviewed, I jumped at the chance. I've always been interested in all things paranormal-the presence of ghosts and spirits, the ability to see the future, the use of tarot cards and runes to predict the future. After reading the book, which I did in one sitting, I can honestly say that all lovers of the paranormal should read these true-life experiences!
The book is broken up into several short "experiences" told from the author's perspective. Titles of these stories include THE NEST, STRANGE SEQUENCE, VEILED REVELATIONS, THE VISIT, EMBRACING MY INSTINCTS, DESTINY DISRUPTED, HIGH PLANES DRIFTER, A GIFT OF LIGHT, CALL ME ANGEL, AND THE SUN WITH THE MOON SHALL SHINE, THE SILVER HAIRED LADY, RECOGNITION OF SPIRIT, and A CHILD REMEMBERS. We're also treated to a wonderful foreword by the Grand Dame of romance herself, Kathryn Falk, an introduction by New Age Dimensions Publishing founder Melissa Alvarez, individual author biographies, and a glossary of terms used throughout the book.
We read about ghostly hauntings, visits from recently departed dead loved ones, warnings to avoid perilous situations, and spirits having hissy-fits. The stories are alternately spine-tingling, spooky, sad, and downright funny. I have to mention here that HIGH PLANES DRIFTER, by Rob Riser, had me laughing out loud several times. THE SILVER HAIRED LADY had me crying for a dead woman seeking justice from the grave, and DESTINY DISRUPTED gave me chills with its forecast of a deadly situation.
The glossary alone is worth the time to read this book. Covering terms from acupressure to Zodiac and everything in between, this is a comprehensive list of terms that one might find when dealing with the paranormal. The author bios are fun and informative, and you just might find a few new books you want to read! And the foreword by Ms. Falk is interesting and entertaining, dealing with humans needs to know and understand the "spirits" that live among us.
All in all, PARANORMAL EXPERIENCES VOLUME ONE is one non-fiction book that I'm glad I picked up-and I'm sure you'll be glad, too!
