THE SCHOOL'S GHOSTS THE MYSTERY LADY A30 GHOST A GHOST IN SUFFOLK A PUB WITH SPIRITS MY EXPERIENCES OF WINGATES GROVE MY NEIGHBOUR RETURNED THE GHOST CAR THE GHOST OF THE HALIFAX BOMBER OUIJA BOARD EXPERIENCE HAUNTINGS AT KENTISH TOWN AND MORE Excerpt from the book: "A ghost story should never end perfectly. That is my rule of thumb. After investigating ghost experiences for nearly thirty years, I realised that the finely polished stories told by storytellers and "ghost walkers" were exactly that - polished. In polishing stories we lose the personality of the haunted and indeed the haunter itself, that's why in my books, research papers and articles, I always maintain the original testaments and facts. The stories that I have collected for you now are rough diamonds, totally unpolished and any additions by myself are kept to a minimum and noted clearly. As I began to compile these stories I began to realise that I was actually becoming very affected by them and I am sure you will too. There is no doubt you will have your favourites once you have read the book, but mine are as follows. One of the standout stories for me, is "The Ghost with no mouth" - a series of terrifying experiences in a modern house in which the witness's child describes the ghost as having "no mouth and wears black boots but is naughty." The experiences were very real to the family involved, and you wonder if "Black Square" continues to haunt this dwelling. Another story "The Mystery Lady" is downright creepy, a man encounters a strange woman on a deserted train station, she mumbles to herself and refuses to get on board the last train to Portsmouth. The next day he discovers that he was actually talking to a ghost I spare you the details so not to spoil the story, but you will certainly have a chill In total there are fifty real experiences with ghosts and spirits included in this book and all direct from the witnesses themselves. None of them wanted their names publishing or any publicity about their experiences but all of them had the need to share, and share they have done."

This book contains reproductions of the famous Cottingley photographs, and gives the whole of the evidence in connection with them. The diligent reader is in almost as good a position as I am to form a judgment upon the authenticity of the pictures. This narrative is not a special plea for that authenticity, but is simply a collection of facts the inferences from which may be accepted or rejected as the reader may think fit. I would warn the critic, however, not to be led away by the sophistry that because some professional trickster, apt at the game of deception, can produce a somewhat similar effect, therefore the originals were produced in the same way. There are few realities which cannot be imitated, and the ancient argument that because conjurers on their own prepared plates or stages can produce certain results, therefore similar results obtained by untrained people under natural conditions are also false, is surely discounted by the intelligent public. I would add that this whole subject of the objective existence of a subhuman form of life has nothing to do with the larger and far more vital question of spiritualism. I should be sorry if my arguments in favour of the latter should be in any way weakened by my exposition of this very strange episode, which has really no bearing upon the continued existence of the individual.
