From the Back Cover
Mediumship dates back to the Greek Oracles and beyond, but millennia later nobody yet knows for certain what transpires when a medium enters a deep trance. Today, the practice of channeling spirit guides through hypnotized mediums is hotly debated. This strange phenomenon is either dismissed as a dubious parlor trick, or regarded as a form of communication between this world and the next. Many view "the guides" as a source of love and wisdom...but are they?
For five years, Joe Fisher painstakingly investigated the claims of channelers and the mysterious voices that speak through them. The Siren Call of Hungry Ghosts is his gripping journey into a realm of darkness and deception.

During the course of his five year research, Fisher was lead to becoming a regular attender with a gathering of people interested in paranormal phenomena. It was here that he was introduced to a number of spirit entities, including his own spirit guide, a spirit that claimed to be a Greek lady who was his former lover in a past life they shared together. Fisher became more convinced of the truthfulness of the claims of his guide, and the other spirits, which spoke through the medium, especially since some of the information that was transmitted appeared to be uncannily accurate. However, as he continued to check the information he was provided with (geographical data, historical facts, dates, times, people, places, and events), in library archives, doubts eventually began to rise in his mind. It soon became more and more apparent that significant pieces of key information was either extremely conspicuous by its absence, or directly contradicted what he had been told.
Fisher's doubts grew more so when he measured the claims of his own guide against those of other popular mediums. Although the spirit's that spoke through the various mediums he met claimed to be in contact with his own spirit guide much of the information they provided contradicted.
As a result of all the conflicting information Fisher began to feel that these spirits were either, at best guessing, or at worst, deliberately lying.Read more ›
I rank this book as one of the best I have ever read on the subject, Joe Fishers writing style is clear and concise, I for one found it very hard to put the book down once I had started it.
It should be required reading for anyone interested in channelling or spiritualism in general, in these modern days we tend to ignore the teachings of old, Joe Fisher did the world a service in reminding everyone just how dangerous it can be.
I was very sad to read that Joe Fisher took his own life, a great loss to the world
This is a fascinating story of a man researching spiritualism, mediums and spirit guides.
It is also a warning to anyone either involved or thinking of getting involved with channeling spirits or indeed going to see a medium.
The book shows how these 'beings' are very intelligent, manipulative and dangerous.
Early on in the book his mother hit the nail on the head when she said "Demons. You're talking to demons and I don't like the sound of it one bit."
He felt that was her Christian 'conditioning' making her say that.
For me Joe Fisher goes tantalisingly close to actually naming these beings on several occasions but just as I felt he was about to, his new age beliefs got in the way and he fell back onto his new age 'conditioning' and explained them away as Lower Astral Beings, whatever they are.
There were times in the book when he unknowingly described the nature of demons and their outlook but didn't realise this.
It is a very good book. Depending on your own beliefs it will depend whether you find this book confusing or whether it makes sense.
For me, the book made total sense even if I disagreed with some of the authors conclusions.
I know what he was dealing with even if he didn't.
In the end he was right to stay away but there was one question that never seemed to be asked in the book.
Given that he tried to validate each spirits claims and he found the personal details they gave to be false.
In the one example of Dr Lang, where his channeled spirits claims about his personal details turned out to be valid i.e. who his family where, where he worked, dates etc.Read more ›
