In this book on the supernatural Dr Ashley takes us into the world of the dead and the "undead." Within you will read about hauntings from the departed who have returned, to poltergeists who fling objects and persecute the living. This book will entertain with its range of stories - for the believer and sceptic alike. It will impress readers with its wide scope of research on the subject. As always, Leonard R.N. Ashley combines popular and academic research to provide a broad portrait of ghosts and poltergeists in our culture. This book also serves as an anthology to rare ghost stories dating back centuries.
