The Author Replies

It's not The Old Feint and Switch as the previous reviewer implies. The stories for those back cover teasers appeared in the news after the first galleys were submited to the authors for corrections. We only had a chance to add one paragraph about them in the book. As to the accusation of using old material, Field Guides are not the appropriate place to introduce new material; they are generally reviews of the existing material and literature. Besides, at least one of the stories in the book has never appeared in print before. And as to the illustrations in the book...well, art, as ever, lies in the eye of the beholder.

The best book on ghosts!

The authors did a great job of categorizing the different types of ghost: haunter, poltergeist, revenant, harbinger, and time-slip. There's plenty of helpful illustrations as well. I highly recommend this book.

Finally, a ghost book worth buying!

This book tells you everything you need to know about ghosts.

EXCELLENT and Serious Guide to the Spooky Side!!

This thoughtful, landmark volume should be purchased by casual ghosthunters, by interested general readers, as well as by scholars interested in details on the history of this field of study. Evans' background in the area is superb, and Huyghe's critical scientific writing skills make for a remarkable guidebook. Highly recommended.
