Daniel Diehl and Mark P. Donnelly have a great atlas up on Amazon. Apparition Atlas: The Ghost Hunter's Travel Guide to Haunted America. I've been finding some great stories in this meaty book.

Book description:

 Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost? Would you like proof that the deceased continue to visit the world of the living? Do you have the courage to stand face-to-face with visitors from the afterlife?

‘Apparition Atlas: The Ghost Hunter’s Travel Guide to Haunted America’ provides seekers of truth with a definitive guide to more than 200 publicly accessible, verified haunted locations in all fifty states. Introductory chapters discuss the many different types of apparitions and explain everything the novice ghost hunter needs to know to search for things that go bump in the night.

Sometimes the spirits of the dead manifest themselves by slamming doors or through blood chilling screams; other times they come as glowing orbs of ectoplasm that float through walls, and occasionally they appear in their human form - fully formed, semi-transparent and terrifyingly real. Let us take you on a journey to places where close encounters with the departed occur with frightening regularity.

Guaranteed to make you doubt everything you believe about death being the end of existence.

Editorial Reviews


A wide range of spooks and ghostly doings are represented in Apparition Atlas. There are places where things move; footsteps, crying, piano music, or disembodied voices can be heard; lights and cold spots are seen and felt; or fully formed people can be seen and even interacted with.  The authors have cleverly included a "scare scale" of skull emoticons, ranging 1-5.  The research in this book is extensive, and the entries are concise without cheating the subject. So if you're looking for a vacation spot out of the ordinary, this is a great resource.

Are you interested in the paranormal? Would you like to investigate hauntings like the paranormal groups on the Discovery, SyFy and other television networks do? Maybe you're already conducting some of your own amateur haunted investigations and want to step things up a bit.

Many people all over the world are getting into the ghost "game". There is no shortage of people claiming they've had paranormal experiences. Aside from television shows, there are hundreds of books, magazines and meetup groups devoted to the subject. Some are legitimate professionals and some are out purely for the sensationalism and financial gain. If you truly believe that spirits walk among us and want to find definitive proof for yourself then Apparition Atlas will set you on the right course.

Authors Daniel Diehl and Mark P. Donnelly have compiled an incredibly extensive list of reportedly haunted places throughout the United States. Listings are by state and include skull (scare) ratings and important information on each location. Backstories as to why the locations might be haunted are also detailed. As a Texan, I was happy to see two of my faves listed: Miss Molly's in Fort Worth and Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie. I've been to both and can highly recommend them!

The beginning chapters have some great, practical common sense advice and information for would-be ghost hunters. There are lots of Dos and Don'ts for paranormal investigators to consider before heading out to a location.

I would highly recommend Apparition Atlas as an excellent reference book for any established or newbie paranormal team looking for new haunts. I'd love it if the authors would write a follow-up book that includes some more details on actual hauntings. I'm a paranormal enthusiast and I'd definitely read another one of their books!

eBook Review Gal received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
