World’s Leading Ghost Hunters Return to Chronicle the Globe’s Top Haunts

Encyclopedia of Haunted Places, Revised Edition is the first book to document hundreds of haunts written by the dozens of paranormal investigators who know them best

FRANKLIN LAKES, New Jersey, October 11, 2009 – The belief in ghosts may be one of the few beliefs citizens the world over have in common. Ghosts are everywhere. Every town has its haunted houses and cemeteries -- the kinds of places locals whisper about and children run past. Ghost legends are powerful.

Authored by dozens of the world’s leading paranormal investigators, the Encyclopedia of Haunted Places: Revised Edition is filled with research notes, location backgrounds, firsthand accounts, interviews, and many anomalous photographs featuring ghostly manifestations of the haunted listings in this directory.

Now expanded, the Encyclopedia of Haunted Places: Revised Edition offers dozens of new locations from all over the globe. From the gravesite of James Dean in East Fairmount, Indiana, to Bran Castle in Bran Romania (commonly referred to as “Dracula’s Castle”), ghost investigators tell their sometime harrowing experiences and give readers an overview of haunted locals. From private residences to inns and restaurants, from battlefields to museums and libraries, and from graveyards to churches, this directory offers supernatural tourists a guide to haunted points of interests the world over.

“To truly understand a haunted location, you need to get local,” said Jeff Belanger, editor and compiler for the Encyclopedia of Haunted Places. “What makes this book unique is that the entries are written by people who have done the haunted field work to back up each ghostly claim -- hearsay and urban legends weren’t enough. Each entry combines the history, the tragedies, and the eyewitness accounts of each haunted locale.”

Now in its second edition, the Encyclopedia of Haunted Places has been updated with dozens of new listings, new information on existing haunts, and a comprehensive directory of paranormal investigators.

Encyclopedia of Haunted Places: Revised Edition (EAN 978-1-60163-799-8, pages: 360, price: $19.99) was published by New Page Books. The book is available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Amazon.com, and many other booksellers.
