The Mammoth Book Of True Hauntings

by Peter Haining, The Mammoth Book Of True Hauntings Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Mammoth Book Of True Hauntings books, This giant collection includes a huge range of 20th-century first-hand accounts of hauntings, such as the American troops who repeatedly saw the ghosts of a dead platoon of men while on patrol in Vietnam; and the witnessed haunting of a house near Tintagel in Cornwall that led actress Kate Winslet to pull out of buying the property. It covers the full spectrum of credible hauntings, from poltergeists (the noisy, dangerous and frightening spirits that are usually associated with pubescent girls, like the Bell Witch), to phantoms (like the Afrits of Saudi Arabia) and seduction spirits (such as the Lorelei, which have lured German men to death). Also included are the notes of the most famous ghost hunters of the twentieth century such as Hans Holzer, Susy Smith (USA); Harry Price, Jenny Randles (UK); Joyce Zwarycz (Australia), Eric Rosenthal (South Africa), and Hwee Tan (Japan). Plus essays by such names as Robert Graves, Edgar Cayce, and M. R. James outlining their own - often extraordinary - conclusions as to just what ghosts might be; along with a full bibliography and list of useful resources. Praise for MBO Haunted House Stories: 'A first rate list of contributors ... Hair raising!' Time Out 'All we need say is buy it.' Starlog

Come visit the Oldest House, the Old Jail, Ripleys, the Oldest School House, and all the many haunted B&Bs and other establishments that harbor wandering souls and spirits from ancient times. Chill to the ghosts you'll find in the Pumpkin Church, the Casa de La Paz and Casa de Sueños.

Hauntings And Other Fantastic Tales

by Vernon Lee, Hauntings And Other Fantastic Tales Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hauntings And Other Fantastic Tales books, Vernon Lee writes in the Preface to Hauntings, “My ghosts are what you call spurious ghosts... of whom I can affirm only one thing, that they haunted certain brains, and have haunted, among others, my own.” First published in 1890, Lee’s most famous volume of supernatural tales occupies a special place in the literature of the fantastic for its treatment of the femme fatale and the allure of the past, along with the themes of thwarted artistic creativity and psychological obsession. This collection, which includes the four stories originally published in Hauntings and three others, enables readers to consider Lee’s work anew for its subtle redefinitions of gender and sexuality during the Victorian fin-de-siècle. The appendices, which include extensive excerpts from writings by Lee’s predecessors and peers, including Algernon Charles Swinburne, Walter Pater, and Lee’s brother Eugene Lee-Hamilton, allow the reader to see how Lee takes on the themes and preoccupations of the late-Victorian period but adapts them to her own purposes.

Hauntings

by Vernon Lee, Hauntings Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hauntings books, Violet Paget spoke four languages, began her career as a journalist at the age of 13, suffered from maladies that were probably psychosomatic, and may have secretly been a lesbian. She was, in other words, the perfect Victorian lady writer of gothic horror, a mystery and a scandal in her own right. Though not well remembered today, Paget's work-often likened to the works of Henry James (whom she admired, and even dedicated a novel to)-is worth seeking out for lovers of the genre. Her ghost stories are, by turns, hauntingly ambiguous tales about love conflated with mental illness, femme fatales, confused sexuality, and women sacrificed on the altar of marriage. This 1890 collection, considered by some her finest, includes the tales: [ "Amour: Dure: Passages from the Diary of Spiridion Trepka" [ "Oke of Okehurst" [ "A Wicked Voice" "Vernon Lee" was the pseudonym of British writer VIOLET PAGET (1865-1935), who wrote numerous novels, essays, travelogues, and works of literary criticism.
