Book Description

25 Feb 2013
"Terrifying real life encounters with ghosts and spirits" Published for the first time, MJ Wayland releases fifty real-life ghost experiences told by the witnesses. Carefully selected, this book is a collection of some of the most strangest, weirdest and down right spookiest stories that the author has uncovered over the last three decades of investigation. Stories include: EXPERIENCES IN AN OLD LONDON PUB MY CHILD'S GHOST VANISHING SCHOOLGIRL THE GLASGOW GHOST THE GHOST OF ST ALBANS THE HOTEL MYSTERY THE GRINNING GHOST THE SEA CAPTAIN'S HOUSE THE CANAL BUILDING GHOST NORTH YORKSHIRE GHOST NORMAN RETURNS HEADLESS DOG OF MANCHESTER THE HAUNTED HOLIDAY THE HAUNTED MARSHES WEIRD EXPERIENCES HAUNTED AIRFIELDS BLACK MAGICK GHOST SOUTH WALES HAUNTING CHESHIRE COTTAGE HAUNTING THE PARANORMAL FOLLOWS ME DON'T STAY HAUNTED GRAVEYARD HAUNTED PIANO TEXTING GHOST THE NIGHTMARE LADY THE OLD NURSING HOME FLOATING GHOST GHOST WITH NO MOUTH HAUNTINGS IN THE DALES GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE HAUNTED HARROGATE HOUSE GHOST ATTACK OR NIGHTMARE? THE SCHOOL’S GHOSTS THE MYSTERY LADY A30 GHOST A GHOST IN SUFFOLK A PUB WITH SPIRITS MY EXPERIENCES OF WINGATES GROVE MY NEIGHBOUR RETURNED THE GHOST CAR THE GHOST OF THE HALIFAX BOMBER OUIJA BOARD EXPERIENCE HAUNTINGS AT KENTISH TOWN AND MORE! Excerpt from the book: "A ghost story should never end perfectly. That is my rule of thumb. After investigating ghost experiences for nearly thirty years, I realised that the finely polished stories told by storytellers and “ghost walkers” were exactly that – polished. In polishing stories we lose the personality of the haunted and indeed the haunter itself, that’s why in my books, research papers and articles, I always maintain the original testaments and facts. The stories that I have collected for you now are rough diamonds, totally unpolished and any additions by myself are kept to a minimum and noted clearly. As I began to compile these stories I began to realise that I was actually becoming very affected by them and I am sure you will too. There is no doubt you will have your favourites once you have read the book, but mine are as follows. One of the standout stories for me, is “The Ghost with no mouth” – a series of terrifying experiences in a modern house in which the witness’s child describes the ghost as having “no mouth and wears black boots but is naughty”. The experiences were very real to the family involved, and you wonder if “Black Square” continues to haunt this dwelling. Another story “The Mystery Lady” is downright creepy, a man encounters a strange woman on a deserted train station, she mumbles to herself and refuses to get on board the last train to Portsmouth. The next day he discovers that he was actually talking to a ghost! I spare you the details so not to spoil the story, but you will certainly have a chill! In total there are fifty real experiences with ghosts and spirits included in this book and all direct from the witnesses themselves. None of them wanted their names publishing or any publicity about their experiences but all of them had the need to share, and share they have done."
