Book ~ "Journeys into the Unknown: Mysterious Canadian Encounters with the Paranormal" (2006) Richard Palmisano

From Amazon ~ This fascinating and bloodcurdling book takes the reader through a collection of amazing ghost stories and paranormal investigations across Ontario that have never before been reported. The circumstances behind fifteen unusual cases of hauntings and ghostly manifestations are explored together with the detailed sagas of full-scale investigations into six further spooky inexplicables occurring in or near Toronto.

The book concludes with a look into a complete investigation of a haunting, including a guide that explains the techniques used to conduct a paranormal investigation. The final section that explains the theories behind what a ghost is, how they manifest, and where they hide - challenging the classic theories of life-after-death research. So turn on all the lights, keep your back to the wall, and be prepared to take a journey into the reality of the unexplained.

Interesting stories of hauntings in Toronto and Ontario.

The first chapter has stories of hauntings that had been reported. I enjoyed the second chapter more because not only were they stories of hauntings but they were investigated.

It would have been nice if the author had been able to research the background of the properties to report who the spirits were rather than just having a medium say it who they were.

Do you believe in spirits?

I do, and have even witnessed some interesting occurrences ( which I can't remember if I have blogged about)
BC ghosts are not very common for some reason!
