The Ghost Handbook

Merry Meet All,

I apologize for the lapse in my blog posts. Life got in the way. I am going to review a book I picked up at Chapters yesterday. Most of you are aware that I am penning a paranormal novel. I believe I was meant to pick this particular book up.

The Ghost Handbook – An Essential Guide to Ghosts, Spirits and Specters is a beautifully designed and illustrated book. It is a small book but it is packed with enough colorful photos for anyone who is an avid fan of the paranormal. The book explains the differences between ghosts, spirits and specters. It includes true ghost stories and haunted places, including the infamous Leap Castle. The image of a dusty skeleton lying on the ground, covered in dead leaves and dirt might startle an unwary reader. To be sure, this book is not for the faint of heart. It also includes the tale of the actual Flying Dutchman ghost ship.

I am impressed with this book from Barron’s Educational Series. A ribbon can be pulled over the front cover to close the book or pulled back to open the book. Inside the book, you have to open the door (a page) to read the table of contents. The book is full of tips, facts and strange true stories that might keep you reading all night- or checking over your shoulder. I was surprised about the tale of the Black Abbess, an evil nun supposedly, who turned witch in the last years of her life, searching for herbs and roots in the wild and reading tarot to the royalty.

If you can find this book, pick it up. It is worth it. It was published last year.
Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch
