9780091910136: Will Storr Vs. The Supernatural: One man's search for the truth about ghosts

When journalist and ghost sceptic Will Storr heads to Philadelphia to meet Lou Gentile, a demonologist, he expects a little fun with an amusing eccentric. What he gets are terrifying experiences of spectral lights and horrific demonic growling - and all of his safe, adult preconceptions about ghosts instantly vanish.

In the cold light of day, Will decides on a quest for the truth about ghosts. He meets professional paranormal investigators and takes part in séances and a vigil in the most haunted house in Britain, tries out divining rods and ouija boards, and goes on set with TV's Most Haunted. But Will also seeks out the sceptics in clinical psychology and philosophy who ask if spirits are really just in our heads.

His journey is full of bizarre, terrifying and hilarious experiences, each one a new insight into life, death and what might come after.

Review:

"In the investigative mode of Jon Ronson and Louis Theroux, Storr makes the perfect companion for travels in the paranormal - highly amusing, thought-provoking and downright scary in equal measure " ( Zoo magazine)

"Starting as a light-hearted romp full of small-town losers who've read too much Stephen King, it soon morphs into a more thoughtful investigation... funny, engaging and genuinely frightening, it makes you wonder if all those horror movies you watched as a teenager had it right after all" ( Arena)

"Storr interviews everyone from mediums to monsterologists and recounts the lot in a simple, yet evocative style that makes this book hard to put down, even if you don't believe in the paranormal" ( Big Issue)

"A very amusing way to scare yourself stupid" ( Independent on Sunday)

"This award-winning writer is at the vanguard of the new British journalism. A taut, fascinating and funny book" ( Herald Sun (Australia))

From the Publisher:
