  • Unlike most writers in this field, Colombo reprints original sources. So, instead of reading an inept, distorted modern rehash of an historical haunting or ghostly encounter, you get the way the story was presented by journalists of the day. Not only is this uncommon good sense, these old newspaper reports make fascinating reading.

    For more recent events, Colombo allows those who experienced strange things to speak for themselves, with a minimum of intrusion.

    The methodology here is not unlike that used by William Corliss in his Sourcebook Project, which set an unbeatable standard for the reportage of anomalous phenomena. Although Colombo fails to organize his material with Corliss's scientific rigour (and, in fairness, some of the material is so bizarre as to resist categorization), his work nevertheless towers over that his competitors, and cannot be too highly recommended to anyone seriously interested in the supernatural. Incidentally, Colombo does not take sides on whether or not any of this is true: he's neither a truculent debunker nor a credulous believer--which is just how it should be.

    A notable flaw: the book has no index.

  • The author worked hard to collect a lot of ghost stories and it showed. The book size is greater than that of a pocket one with more than 500 pages. However, most of the tales are one page long. They read like an articles from a newspaper. That means they're brief and unemotional. There is no suspense. A few are curiosity provoking.
    There are no photos either.
