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.

Otherworldly Affaires: Haunted Lovers, Phantom Spouses,
and Sexual Molesters from the Shadow World BY Brad
IT HERE NOW!
|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
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.

6. Dark Force - The Terrifying and Tragic Story of the Bean Family By William John Bean Jr.
BUY IT HERE NOW!
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.

11. Cry of the Banshee
BUY IT HERE NOW!
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.
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."

of the Undead: A Field Guide to Creatures
That Cannot Rest in Peace By Bob Curran
What lurks out there in the
What was that eerie sound in the dead of
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).
Book of Werewolves
by Sabine Baring-Gould (Author), Loren Coleman
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.
