About this title:

Synopsis: Lore of the Ghost is an original and thought-provoking exploration of the numerous categories of ghosts and hauntings throughout the world. It discusses the possible motives for each type of haunting???from phantom white ladies and spectral black dogs to haunted highways and ghostly vehicles???what they represent, why they occur, and their possible functions. Unlike the vast majority of books on the subject, Lore of the Ghost is not a gazetteer of ghost sightings or a ghost hunter's manual, but an investigation into human belief in the supernatural and its effect on the nature of ghosts worldwide.

About the Author: Brian Haughton is a qualified archaeologist and researcher, with an interest in the strange and unusual. He is author of Hidden History: Lost Civilizations, Secret Knowledge, and Ancient Mysteries, and Haunted Spaces, Sacred Places (both published by New Page Books) and Webmaster of Mysteriouspeople.com, devoted to the lives of enigmatic people. He has written on the subjects of ancient mysteries and the folklore of the supernatural for a variety of print and Internet publications, including the BBC's Legacies Website, Doorways Magazine, New Dawn, Awareness, and Paranormal Magazine in the U.K. He currently lives and writes in Greece.
