Product description


'It is a pleasure to read such a well-researched and documented guide to the major fields of interest in the paranormal, covering how we have experienced different phenomena and entity contacts, and how we have attempted to understand and explain them. Dr Leo Ruickbie has created a work of tremendous value to readers and researchers alike.' – Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits

From Borley to Baal, and everything in between, Leo Ruickbie’s latest work is a ghoulish glossary of facts, figures and fictions. A Brief Guide to the Supernatural is the perfect introduction to the world of all things eerie, inexplicable and otherworldly, whether you seek spirits, demons or angelic audience, this book gives an entertaining and informative overview equally suited to the experienced or amateur spook spotter.– Jason Dexter Karl, paranormal investigator for Most Haunted

He has a PhD from King’s College, London, for his research into modern witchcraft and magic, and is the author of Witchcraft Out of the Shadows and Faustus: The Life and Times of a Renaissance Magician. He has also contributed to edited academic volumes on the occult, spiritualism and the sociology of Harry Potter, and has lectured on vampires, Wicca and the symbolism of nudity in witchcraft, amongst other things.
