This guidebook to supernatural phenomena in the U.S. is arranged alphabetically by state and then city or location name. The more than 2,000 sites are considered "haunted" because events occur there that are beyond our ability to explain. Each entry contains a synopsis of the case along with a precise address and travel directions. Black-and-white photographs are provided for a sampling of sites. Entries are footnoted to a 400-item bibliography presented at the end of the book. The bibliographic entries are complete, including ISBN or LC card number. Most references are to books or periodicals published between 1970 and 1993. Another interesting feature of this directory is a list of organizations (with their addresses) that are mentioned in the text, such as the Ghost Research Society and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
The work is aimed at individuals searching for new experiences or unusual places to visit. Hauck, an internationally known authority on paranormal phenomena, adds a few words of common sense in his introduction (e.g., "secure the permission of owners or tenants of private residences"; "always confirm and update directions locally"). Small editorial mistakes were noted, misspellings or wrong tenses used for verbs. The editor should apologize to the people of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for calling it Oshgosh.
Similar works such as A Ghosthunter's Guide (Contemporary, 1993) and Haunted Heartland (Warner, 1985) are narrower in scope or less thorough in coverage. Readers interested in the supernatural will enjoy this directory and will read it cover to cover. At its reasonable price, buy one for reference and one for the circulating collection.
