Real Vampires, Night Stalkers and Creatures from the Darkside (Paperback) BY Brad Steiger (Author)

This great new book is soon to be released it has already become the #1 Bestseller (See Top 100 Occultism Bestsellers) at Tower Books

Availability: Pre-Order: This Paperback is scheduled to be released on September 1, 2009.


A chilling chronicle of the often ignored history of vampirism as it has surfaced repeatedly in news articles, historical accounts, and first person interviews, this shocking account of occultist rituals and the inhuman forces that influence them shines a light on the horrifying truth. Revealing that real vampires are not immortal, do not have fangs or sleep in coffins, and have no fear of sunlight or crucifixes, the examination dispels many myths but also confirms the truth behind several traits of real vampires, such as the insatiable thirst for blood and the dream of an eternal soul. Complete with 30 spine-tingling tales of the hideous wraiths and creatures that lurk in shadow, this fascinating collection includes the stories of the Mexican prostitute who mesmerized an entire village, convincing them she was an Incan goddess who required human sacrifice for her magic; the three teenagers who left a trail across the South as they conducted blood-drinking rituals with animals; and the mysterious Lady in Black who draws psychic energy from men who dare approach her as she wanders through city streets and parks.

Tied with: Otherworldly Affaires: Haunted Lovers, Phantom Spouses, and Sexual Molesters from the Shadow World BY Brad Steiger

Otherworldly Affaires: Haunted Lovers, Phantom Spouses, and Sexual Molesters from the Shadow World BY BRAD STEIGER


THE GREATEST POWER OF ALL Of all the forces that move men and women, none is more powerful than that of love and sexual desire. This primal impulse apparently extends into the otherworld and is responsible for some of the most astounding chapters in the literature of psychic phenomena. Here are amazing yet absolutely true stories of - apparitions of lovers seen at their moment of death, - jealous lovers who have sought vengeance from beyond the grave, - sexual molesters from the other world, - warnings and advice from lovers who have passed over, - passionate liaisons between psychic mediums and their contacts, - seducers from UFOs, and even more extraordinary tales. Originally published as HAUNTED LOVERS, this book contains a multitude of actual case histories, many of which were recorded here for first time. BRAD STEIGER has been writing about the paranormal for more than four decades, during which he has produced more than 160 books on the subject. He regards this work, which was certainly ahead of its time, as one of his best books on the paranormal.


2. A History of Ghosts: The True Story of Seances, Mediums, Ghosts, and Ghostbusters Peter Akyroyd

A History of Ghosts: The True Story of Seances, Mediums, Ghosts, and Ghostbusters Peter Akyroyd

Buy It Here Now!

Peter Aykroyd spent his childhood watching his family’s parlor séances through the crack of a basement door. Here, for the first time, Aykroyd tells the strange and delightful story that inspired his son, Dan, to make the mega-hit, Ghostbusters. Part history, part family legend, A History of Ghosts starts in 1848 in upstate New York, where the spiritualist craze first began. Aykroyd introduces the reader to notable mediums while telling the story of the development of spiritualism, interweaving a personal history marked by a fascination with ghosts and spirits with the larger narrative about the role the paranormal has played in our culture. Such legendary figures as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini appear and vanish.

Everyone loves a good ghost story. Successful TV shows such as Medium and Ghost Hunters are proof that our national obsession with ghosts is here to stay. Millions of Americans believe in the paranormal—and even skeptics have heard a bump in the night and suspected it might be something supernatural.

About the Author

PETER AYKROYD is a retired Government of Canada Senior Executive. He is the author of two previous books, The Anniversary Compulsion and A Sense of Place. He lives on a plot of land 20 miles north of Kingston, Ontario, that has been in the family for 180 years.

4. There’s Something in the Woods by Nick Redfern

There’s Something in the Woods by Nick Redfern


What's in the Woods? Bigfoot? Check. Phantom black dogs? Check. Werewolves? Check. Giant mystery birds? They're here, too. Toss in some haunted woods, spooky cemeteries, crop circles, and crashed UFOs and you've got Nick Redfern's latest road trip across two continents for all things cryptozoological or otherwise mysterious. This is the third in a series of excursions into the occult fringe for the indefatigable Redfern. It all started with "Three Men Seeking Monsters," which Booklist called "lively and entertaining," and was followed by "Memoirs of a Monster Hunter," which his colleagues have called "wild and wooly" and "fascinating." Now, in this latest volume, Redfern defies all the laws of self-preservation and offers himself as bait in the face of the unknown ¬- to learn, if indeed, "There's Something in the Woods."

5. Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting by Christopher Balzano

Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting by Christopher Balzano


"Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting: Step-by-Step Instruction for Exploring Haunts and Finding Spirits, Spooks, and Specters" introduces novice paranormal explorers to the history, techniques, and equipment used in the search for proof of life after death, or simply, ghosts. Written like a field guide to ghost hunting, the book begins by examining what a ghost is, and isn't, and presents a brief history of ghosts and the pioneers of the ghost hunting field. You'll review what has already been discovered and the tried and true methods and tricks that have been successfully used by seasoned ghost hunters and their outcomes. You'll also take a look at the different types of equipment used to both search for and communicate with ghosts, as well as how to approach the hunt depending on the location. Finally, you'll learn how to assess the evidence that you've gathered and what it all means, and how to avoid the pitfalls that are the stuff of popular ghost legends. Written by an avid and experienced paranormal researcher, "Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting" is filled with firsthand tips and advice, including a 90-minute interactive DVD featuring tutorials and interviews, and is both a reference and a source of helpful inspiration for any aspiring ghost hunter.

6. Dark Force - The Terrifying and Tragic Story of the Bean Family By William John Bean Jr.

Dark Force - The Terrifying and Tragic Story of the Bean Family By William J. Bean Jr.


This book is a testimony of the trauma that the Bean Family endured from the eyes of a young Bill Bean, and the story of how they finally escaped and overcame it. It is their story of trial and faith, and how that they faced things, which according to many could not possibly be real, but yet they are all too real!

William John Bean Jr was born on July 29, 1966 in Baltimore, Maryland. His parents were William J. Bean Sr. and Patricia Bean. Bill has an elder sister named Patti and a younger brother named Bobby. In 1970, the family relocated to Glen Burnie, Maryland, after buying a house located on Little Road in a community called Harundale. What the family didn't know is that the house was already occupied by demonic entities. Bill Bean has stated in his own words that, "My family was literally torn apart by an evil force that co-existed among us in that house. The activity began as subtle noises and gradually escalated into violent physical attacks on us by the entities. My mother suffered the most, not only being assaulted by the entities, but also by my father as well. I witnessed a tremendous amount of blood letting in that house, as a child. He was a decent hard working man that suddenly had taken a dramatic turn for the worse. He left us in 1975, and the activity grew even more intense after his departure. This book is not for children or those who get upset easily, because this is a very terrifying, tragic and disturbing story.

It used to be you needed a crystal, a psychic, or a Oijia board to make contact with the spirit world.

11. Cry of the Banshee

Cry of the Banshee


Charleston, WV—Quarrier Press is pleased to announce its latest release, the newly revised Cry of the Banshee, a comprehensive guide to the hauntings and paranormal tales in West Virginia and along the Ohio River. The stories originated with author and tour guide Susan Sheppard's ever-popular Haunted Parkersburg Tours. Recently voted as the "Second Most Up & Coming Paranormal Person" in the U.S. by the Haunted America Tours, Sheppard delves into the people and history behind the ghosts. She also reveals how to know if your house is haunted, and the 13 most likely places to find phantoms.

Read about the phantom from the shores of Scotland and Ireland called the banshee, a cursed omen of bad news and death that plagued early settlers. Keep reading and meet a more famous West Virginia red-eyed portent of doom, the Mothman. And here for the first time in print is the truth behind the West Virginia encounters with the infamous Men in Black, as well as the terrifying Indrid Cold.

Some of Sheppard's stories feature 20th century ghosts, such as the spirits haunting a Parkersburg radio station or the city's historic Blennerhassett Hotel. Many of these Sheppard has witnessed firsthand. She has experienced innumerable hauntings in and around Riverview Cemetery, Parkersburg's version of the twilight zone. And of course, always a motherlode of tragedy and violence, Moundsville Prison has supplied plenty of tales of its tortured inhabitants.

Susan Sheppard

The author's most amazing encounter with ghosts, and the one that forged her interest, occurred when she was four and a half years old, growing up in Doddridge County. She recounts: "I was climbing a hill between my grandmother's and aunt's houses, and felt someone staring at me. Looking up, I saw two Indian braves, in primitive dress, looking right at me. Terrified, I dropped to my belly and crawled toward the house. As I got up to make a dash for the door, I looked back and they were still staring."

“Best Travel Series of The Year 2006”—Booklist

Now the weirdness has spread throughout the U.S.! Each fun and intriguing volume offers more than 250 illustrated pages of places where tourists usually don’t venture: it’s chock-full of oddball curiosities, ghostly places, local legends, crazy characters, cursed roads, and peculiar roadside attractions.

Encyclopedia of the Undead: A Field Guide to Creatures That Cannot Rest in Peace By Bob Curran

Encyclopedia of the Undead: A Field Guide to Creatures That Cannot Rest in Peace By Bob Curran

What lurks out there in the fog?

What was that eerie sound in the dead of night?

What flitted by at the end of the street, just beyond the farthest street lamp?

From earliest times, tales of the restless dead and their fellow travelers have terrified mankind. Whether around a remote campfire or in the middle of a bustling city, the unquiet spirits and attendant creatures that have tormented humanity since the prehistoric darkness haven’t gone away – they still have the power to strike fear in our hearts.

Encyclopedia of the Undead traces those shadowy entities – vampires, werewolves, ghouls and monsters – that lurk just outside the range of human vision and inhabit our most frightening tales. Drawing on a wide range of beliefs and literature, it traces these horrors from their earliest recorded inceptions and charts their impact upon the human psyche. In this book, history and terror mix to create the things that lurk in the darkest corners of our minds.

You’ll find detailed descriptions of terrors from all over the world – from the mist-shrouded mountains of Eastern Europe to the sweltering jungles of the Caribbean islands, from the dark, stone-lined tombs of the uncoffined dead beneath the remote New England hills to the dark magics that lurk beneath the thriving, colorful surface of a city like New Orleans. In addition to the more conventional creatures, Encyclopedia of the Undead also details some of the more obscure Things that gnaw at the edges of men’s minds – Incubi and Succubi, the Mara, and the dark legends that have influenced writers from Sheridan Le Fanu to H.P. Lovecraft.

This is a book for all those who are interested in the darker side of the human mind – the side that examines and even embraces those beliefs and imaginings that form the basis of our most archetypical fears. This is the book for those brave enough to plumb the depths of our worst nightmares!

Dr. Bob Curran lives and works in the North of Ireland, a place that is haunted by myth, legend and folktales. Over the years, he has studied the dark and sinister, both in his own land and in places beyond. A psychologist and a historian, he has written and lectured extensively on the arcane and the mysterious. He is the author of Vampires and Celtic Lore & Legend (both from New Page Books).

The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould (Author), Loren Coleman

Buy it now!

Eclectic British scholar SABINE BARING-GOULD (1834-1924) inspired My Fair Lady, wrote the hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers," and published more than five hundred literary works. Among his foremost folkloric studies is 1865's The Book of Werewolves, the first serious academic study of the shape-shifters of mythological lore. "This work is the most frequently cited early study of lycanthropy and is regarded by most scholars as the foundation work in the field," says cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction. "The Book of Werewolves was so visionary that it foresaw that future discussions within werewolf studies would necessarily travel down many side paths. Indeed, midway through The Book of Werewolves, Baring-Gould treks into the shadowy world of crimes vaguely connected to werewolves, including serial murders, grave desecration, and cannibalism." This new edition, complete with the original illustrations, is part of Cosimo's Loren Coleman Presents series. LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.
