About the Author:

Rosemary Ellen Guiley is the best-selling author of books on the paranormal, mystical and visionary experiences, and spirituality. She is an honorary life member of the Ghost Club of London and the author of The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft, The Encyclopedia of Magic and Alchemy, and The Encyclopedia of Vampires, Werewolves, and Other Monsters, all from Facts On File and Checkmark Books. She lives in Arnold, MD. Troy Taylor is an author and the founder of the American Ghost Society.

From Booklist:

The tone of this volume is set in the foreword, where Tony Taylor, of the American Ghost Society, announces that proof of ghosts can consist solely of accumulated testimonies: “Scientific debunking be damned—we have just historically proven that a house is haunted and that ghosts do exist!” Guiley in her introduction says, “Can I prove ghosts exist? No. But skeptics cannot disprove ghosts either.” This is a book by believers for believers, and when this is understood, the work can be useful. The book is in dictionary format, with good use of white space and illustrations. The quality of the photographs is not good, but quality reproduction of old photographs is neither easy nor cheap. More than 600 entries (up from more than 500 in the second edition, published in 2000) range from a few paragraphs to a couple of pages, and although there is no bibliography, each article indicates further reading. There are extensive see and see also references and a detailed index. Unlike some of Guiley’s other works, this one indexes some hoaxes, including the Cottingley fairies, which deceived and embarrassed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; but there is no separate article on fraud. The Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal has a brief, dismissive entry.  Believers and skeptics alike seeking information on various phenomena will find this book useful, and there are some fascinating biographies of individuals ranging from Harry Houdini to various mediums. Academic and public libraries with folklore and popular culture collections will want to consider this, as will larger public libraries with demand for materials on the supernatural. --Kathleen Stipek
