about

Will Storr has done some seriously bizarre and otherworldly things over the course of his career as a journalist. But even spending an entire day with Ozzy Osbourne wasn't as frightening as when he agreed to follow Philadelphia "demonologist" Lou Gentile on his appointed rounds. Will Storr never believed in ghosts—but his healthy skepticism couldn't explain the strange lights and sounds he witnessed, and the weird behavior of the occupants of several allegedly haunted houses.

What resulted is a confirmed cynic's (and proud of it!) dedicated search for answers in a shadowy world of séances, mediums, devil worshippers—even the Vatican's chief exorcist. So get ready to confront the genuinely creepy along with the hilariously ridiculous in Will Storr vs. the Supernatural!

Will Storr is a journalist who has dressed up as a woman to impress the transsexual leader of radical pro-suicide campaigners, trained in jungle warfare with the British army, and has been arrested and then deported under armed guard from Los Angeles. He has written for many publications in the UK and has won many awards. This is his f...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Truly Captivating Page-Turner Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down! The pages just flew by. The author, a journalist, recounts his journey of exploration and research into the world of the supernatural - in particular, the existence of ghosts. Starting off basically as a skeptic, his travels lead him into all sorts of situations - some more baffling than others. On the matter of the existence of ghosts and an afterlife, he has discussions with a philosopher, a psychiatrist, research physicians, a priest/exorcist and a variety of ghost hunters; he interviews people who have had various experiences with ghosts; he travels to several places in England, the USA and even the Vatican; he participates in various investigations, including haunted houses, poltergeists, possessions and even examines the issue of Near Death Experiences. Throughout his researches he remains focused, objective and open-minded. He continuously reflects on what he’s experiencing in his investigations, in light of the history of these various phenomena throughout the ages, looking for patterns. He even considers quantum physics (Uncertainty Principle) and string theory (multi dimensions) as possibly having the potential for eventually explaining these phenomena. Could it be that consciousness and the physical body are two separable entities? The evidence is there to be studied. The bottom line is that some of these events, as described, are simply not obviously explainable through conventional knowledge. This is an excellent book. The prose flows in a very friendly and engaging style. It should be of interest to skeptics and believers alike, as well as those simply interested in unsolved mysteries.
