Coast to Coast Ghosts : True Stories of Hauntings Across America
by Leslie Rule, Ann Rule
An employee of the St. James Hotel in New Mexico watches in shock as a fair-haired toddler with a terribly disfigured face disappears into the floor. This is just one of the paranormal mysteries Leslie Rule shares with us - a result of extensive interviews and research uncovering the reasons behind ghost sightings across the country. Coast To Coast Ghosts features dozens of spine-tingling, real-life ghost stories and approximately 50 black-and-white photographs taken by Rule of haunted sites from Seattle to San Diego and from New Orleans to Key West. According to a 1990 Gallup poll, one in four Americans believe in ghosts, up from one in ten in 1978. Today, one in ten report they've actually seen a ghost.

Ghosts: True Encounters with the World Beyond
By Dr. Hans Holzer
Hans Holzer is a world-renowned parapsychologist and author of several paranormal books including Are You Psychic? and Ghosts, Hauntings & Possessions, in which we learn of Holzer's earlier forays into the world of the supernatural. His encounters with the undead are apparently never-ending. Ghosts: True Encounters with the World Beyond is a gigantic volume, documenting almost 200 cases of haunted houses, ships, castles, and just about any place imaginable! The cases are far more complex than just your average white-sheeted ghoul in the attic. Holzer examines the differences between "real ghosts," who reveal themselves to living people, and psychic impressions, which occur to many witnesses, always at the same time and place. There is also solid advice for
interpreting paranormal signals--and even photographs of ghostly apparitions. This is an informative read, but one that is open to personal interpretation. --Naomi Gesinger

The Journals of Eleanor Druse: My Investigation of the Kingdom Hospital Incident
by Eleanor Druse
Book Description: The fascinating and terrifying exploration into the supernatural that inspired Stephen King's much-anticipated ABC-TV series, Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. The newly built Kingdom Hospital in Lewiston, Maine, is one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the country. Unfortunately, it was erected on the site of a terrible tragedy -- a textile mill fire that killed dozens of workers, mostly children. And it appears that beneath the sheen of the new construction and scientific innovations of The Kingdom, an indecipherable and primal evil lurks -- and the soul of a trapped and helpless child cries out for solace.
