Mysteries: A Powerful Sequel to the Author's Bestseller, The "Occult" : An Investigation into the Occult, the Paranormal and the Supernatural, Colin Wilson
1 Colin Wilson Mysteries: A Powerful Sequel to the Author's Bestseller, The "Occult" : An Investigation into the Occult, the Paranormal and the Supernatural
Watkins 235397 London 2006 1842931709 / 9781842931707 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Colin Wilson came to realize, through his own cathartic experiences, that all of us are in fact manifold personalities, that we each consist of a ladder or hierarchy of selves, and that the upper members may be called upon at will. He explains how these discoveries led him to the view that our integral multiple personalities are the explanation for a wide diversity of paranormal phenomena, from dowsing and demonic possession to precognition and spoon-bending. "Man's being is like a vast mansion, yet he seems to live in a single room in the basement." Small tears front cover 667 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Ghost Hunters: the Victorians and the Hunt for Proof of Life After Death, Deborah Blum
2 Deborah Blum Ghost Hunters: the Victorians and the Hunt for Proof of Life After Death
Arrow Books 241954 Great Britain 2007 0099469340 / 9780099469346 Softcover Good Condition In Victorian Britain, a group of eminent scientists got together to found a society expressly to prove the existence of ghosts. The age of Darwin represented the greatest scientific advances known to man. The tension between science and religion was exposed by Darwin's On the Origin of the Species in 1859, which challenged the basic tenets of belief. Yet many of those in the forefront of the scientific revolution could not give up the idea of a higher reality. Life after death was the unknown frontier. Victorian society was full of mediums claiming they could communicate with the spirits of the dead. Baffling psychic phenomena occurred every day at seances: mysterious rappings were heard, furniture moved, ghostly forms appeared, the mediums spoke in the altered voices of the dead with information only their nearest could possibly know. Pyschometry involving locks of hair and watches and children's toys; telepathy; ouija boards; apparitions; astral projection: all were commonplace. In 1882 the Society of Psychical Research was founded in London to investigate all these phenomena: it was a group led by some of the greatest scientists of the age but its membership also included Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Leslie Stephen, Virginia Woolf's father, John Ruskin, the Reverend Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain). Six months later William James, Professor of Psychology at Harvard, and the brother of Henry James visited London and went on to set up American branch. Their experiments went on for years. Many mediums, like the notorious Madame Blavatsky, were exposed as charlatans yet there were some mediums who continued to communicate directly with another world, who despite every rigorous scientific test seemed to prove that souls survived death. This is the story of this group of forward thinkers: many of whom were driven to the spirit world by personal tragedy, some whose feeling of loss lead to their own suicides. It is the story of the greatest ghost hunt of any age. 370 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

City Of The Dead, Herbert Lieberman
6 Herbert Lieberman City Of The Dead
Fontana / Collins 239995 Great Britain 1977 00991440802 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Winner of the Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere: As chief medical examiner of New York City, Paul Konig has one of the world's most difficult jobs - and when his daughter goes missing, he must take on his most wrenching case yet. New York City in the 1970s is a dark, dangerous, and threatening place. One of the bright spots in this decaying metropolis is Paul Konig. As the city's chief medical examiner, he has developed an impressive reputation for his skills in forensic pathology - skills that will be put to the ultimate test when a dangerous psychopath kidnaps Konig's daughter. Herbert Lieberman takes his readers on a gruesome journey through the ten most difficult days in the life of a man at the very end of his rope. In addition to being awoken to phone calls featuring his daughter's desperate screams each night, Konig's professional life is in danger. Between the case of a serial killer who leaves a trail of severed body parts in his wake; the investigation of questionable forensic work on an alleged prison suicide under Konig's watch; and the naked ambitions of a deputy medical examiner, it will take every ounce of Konig's strength to save his own life - as well as his family's. 366 pages.
