Synopsis: Originally published in 1992 and now available in paperback, a reference to the paranormal, which takes a look at a broad range of phenomena worldwide, from UFO sightings and poltergeists to the Loch Ness Monster and Catharism.

From Booklist: This encyclopedia of the paranormal is well suited for home libraries and New Age collections in public libraries. More than 750 entries on psychic, supernatural, and occult phenomena and biographical information are accompanied by 40 pages of black-and-white and some color illustrations. The length of entries ranges from a few lines to six pages. Coverage of subjects is thorough considering the size of the volume. Among the topics are Altered States, Black Madonna, Fortune-Telling, Pyramids, UFOs, Phantom Battles, and Witchcraft. There are entries for such diverse personalities as L. Ron Hubbard, Elizabeth K{ }ubler-Ross, Adolph Hitler, Arthur Conan Doyle, Roger Bacon, William Blake, Madame Blavatsky, Carl Jung, and Emmanuel Swedenborg.

Cross-references are listed in parentheses after headings and within the text in boldface. Sources for footnotes are indicated at the end of each entry. The excellent six-page bibliography contains mainly British sources, reflecting the book's origin. Gordon is not a detached reporter. The text is sprinkled with his personal beliefs and opinions, often done tongue-in-cheek. A British flavor is also evident.

Recommended as a supplementary reference or browsing item for New Age collections in public libraries.
