Book Description

12 Jan 2014
First published in 1915, we're proud to reintroduce Hereward Carrington's TRUE GHOST STORIES.

In “True Ghost Stories,” Mr. Carrington presents a number of startling cases of this character; but they are not the ordinary “ghost stories”—based on pure fiction, and having no foundation in reality. Here we have a well-arranged collection of incidents, all thoroughly investigated and vouched for, and the testimony obtained first-hand and corroborated by others. The chapter on “Haunted Houses” is particularly striking. The first chapter deals with the interesting question, “What is a Ghost?” and attempts to answer this question in the light of the latest scientific theories (as of 1915) which have been advanced to explain these supernatural happenings and visitants. It is a book of absorbing interest, and cannot fail to grip and hold the attention of every reader—no matter whether he be a student of these questions, or one merely in search of hair-raising anecdotes and stories. He will find them here a-plenty!

About the Author

HEREWARD CARRINGTON, author of “True Ghost Stories,” is well known in this country, and in Europe, as a prominent scientific writer on psychical and occult subjects. He has been a member of both the English and American Societies of Psychical Research for more than 15 years; has written over a dozen books on the subject—a number of which has been translated into foreign languages (such as Japanese and Arabic), and he has lectured in London, Paris, Rome, Venice, Milan, Genoa, Turin, etc.—before scientific organizations. His writings are well known, and have earned him a high place in psychical circles. He’s a late member of the Council of the American Scientific Society, of the American Geographical Society, and of the American Health League. He collaborated in the “American Encyclopædia,” “The Standard Dictionary,” etc. His experience in the investigation of psychical mysteries is unrivalled. He has travelled all over the country investigating “cases,” spending nights in “haunted houses,” and accounts of his investigations have appeared in the Re-ports of the various Psychical Societies, and also in his own publications.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edited and good 18 Mar 2013
By Katrina Rose, Author - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Writing a book is more difficult than most would or could imagine, and after the edit which is the only time I READ this book, it delivers. I'm a sucker for true ghost stories, hauntings, and even possession. I feel that most don't understand the unexplainable so they deem it as fake or stupid. This is not a stupid book, and is worth the money.
5.0 out of 5 stars remastered copy 18 Sep 2012
By Pixie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The book published by Dodo Publishing has been fully remastered and is typo free, as opposed to the free versions found online. There is also a new chapter on ghost stories of the 21sy century which is very informative. You will not find old material on kindle.
5.0 out of 5 stars great book 16 Sep 2012
By Hannan Jane Richardson - Published on
I enjoy Carrington's books and this revised edition is worth every penny. There are may versions of this book out there because it is out of copyright, but this version has new accounts of ghost stories. I don't know what the previous reviewer is talking about, she must have bought a different version of the book because the one printed by Dodo Publishing is perfectly edited and restored. Just click on search inside and you will see the formatting, which is the purpose of creating a revised edition of a classic. (I can only speak for the Dodo Publishing edition). Well worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money 7 Aug 2012
By jetta530 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I purchased this book on my nook because it seemed pretty exciting by the desciption. After just a page into it, i noticed that the editing is terrible. I thought I would keep reading to see if it got any better and it didn't. It was so bad that you couldn't even understand what was going on. The crappy thing about it is that you can not return a nook download. I just wasted $11.99 but you don't have to.
