Ghosts traces the cultural and literary origins of the paranormal, reveals the secrets behind many mysterious myths and legends, and analyzes our continued fascination with visitors from the other side. With chapters on the origins of ghosts, poltergeists, ghosts from around the world, exorcism, haunted houses, and more, this book will keep readers on the edge of their seats. 

Ghosts investigates our continued obsession with visitors from the other side, and establishes once and for all where the horror begins—and ends. Belief in ghosts is nothing new. It goes back thousands of years and is a feature of many cultures around the world. Uncertainty about death is part of the human condition and the existence of an afterlife is deeply rooted in most worldwide cultures and religions.

It is sure to catch the interest of anyone interested in the occult or in ghost stories in literature and popular culture. Readers will be informed, entertained, and frightened by this comprehensive volume about "the other side."
