About the Author:

Rosemary Ellen Guiley is the best-selling author of books on the paranormal, mystical and visionary experiences, and spirituality. She is an honorary life member of the Ghost Club of London and the author of The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft, The Encyclopedia of Magic and Alchemy, and The Encyclopedia of Vampires, Werewolves, and Other Monsters, all from Facts On File and Checkmark Books. She lives in Arnold, MD. Troy Taylor is an author and the founder of the American Ghost Society.

From Booklist:

Arranged alphabetically, this compilation of facts pertaining to actual investigations and theories as well as the history of ghosts and hauntings greatly expands the first edition. Entries vary between a few sentences (Afrit , an Arabian demon) and to nearly two pages (Hyslop, James Hervey [1854-1920], who conducted physical research). Many entries are followed by references for further reading, including Web sites. A few illustrations and photos are provided, and see references are frequent. The writing style is very readable, and browsers may find themselves reading the entire work.The only really comparable publication is the British publication Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by John and Anne Spencer (Headline, 1993), which came out a year after Guiley's first edition. It needs updating and is not nearly as comprehensive as Guiley's new edition. If the first edition was well used, buy reference and circulating copies of the second at this reasonable price. Recommended for high-school, public, and academic libraries. RBB
