Haunted House Boxset! GRAB ALL FOUR Haunted House Stories in one volume. Here's what you get: 1. The Haunting of Dutton House Clara Edwards's son is a brute of a boy. His body grew massive and strong, while his mind remains that of a young child. Cretin and imbecile are the words used to describe Alfred Edwards. So, Clara keeps him hidden away from public scorn. His physical strength continues to develop, until one day, he unwittingly commits murder. He doesn't mean to-he just needs his mother's screaming to stop. More than a century later, Amber's family moves into the Edwards's old home. Immediately, disturbing things occur. When Amber's son begins to draw mindlessly on the walls and his eyes go blank, Amber fears someone's spirit is hovering. Someone tortured and suffering unbearable grief. Against Amber's will, the past is thrust upon her, and if she can't find a way to resolve it, she and her family will be the next victims... 2. The Haunting of Faulkner House December-early 1800s. She came in the night...Her grisly, inexplicable acts of murder thrust Faulkner House into heinous fame. More than a century later, residents refuse to inhabit the place, claiming evil lurks within. Over the years, a few brave souls have tried, but they paid dearly for their foolishness. When young widow Fannie Robson moves to Bledevere to escape her grief, she is destitute. The only place she can afford is Faulkner House. Against vehement warnings and icy outcries, she moves in. She's not there twenty-four hours before the horrifying haunting begins. Blood runs, things shatter, items disappear, doors refuse to open... Fannie tries to explain it all away. And then, a frantic hope surges through her. If there truly are ghosts and spirits, why can't she make contact with her dead husband? Fannie's desperation forces her into a show-down with seemingly no way to win. She has grossly underestimated the evil forces fighting her. Is her only way out death? 3. The Haunting of Bennet House Prenna Johnson chases after haunted sightings with pure delight. But when she and her boyfriend, Gavin, stumble on Bennet House, she is in over her head. Way over her head. There have been rumors, of course. That in the 1800's, a famous painter living in Bennet House murdered his children's governess. But nothing was proven. So, it's just a rumor. Only it isn't. The murdered governess hasn't rested for over a century. She decides that Prenna is the human who will provide vengeance. What starts out as an eerie investigation, quickly goes wrong. When the governess takes over Prenna's body, all control is lost. Prenna is at the mercy of a murdered woman who wants nothing more than her bitter revenge. 4. The Haunting of Slater House Leeches-masses of them. Slithering around in jars, just waiting for Doctor Mason's use. The good doctor uses them to treat everything from headaches to consumption. He also "purifies" his own body by placing the creatures regularly all over his own chest to suck out any bad blood. Which causes no problems, until he attaches them to four weak, sickly children. Centuries later, Pamela Sharp leads a group of students to Slater House for research. When leeches squirm under the cheese on their pizza, when blotches of blood appear and disappear on their bedroom rugs, when one of the students takes on a ghastly glow, Pamela knows that something is horrendously wrong. When the truth is revealed, she wonders if any of them will survive...

The culmination of Brad Steiger’s 50 years of paranormal research, this book is a bold telling of true ghost stories and firstperson encounters with the supernatural. Arranged topically, it covers every sort of ghost and haunting: poltergeists, shadow beings, and phantoms alongside haunted apartments, hotels, and trains. From ghosts that still haunt Ohio’s State Reformatory, otherwise known as Shawshank, to Abe Lincoln’s regular consultation with mediums, this compendium delves into the true scary stories from both historical documents and personal accounts. In its 30 chapters, spirits represented include the good (“Ghosts that Saved Lives”), the bad (“Invisible Home Wreckers”), and the ugly (“Demonic Spirits That Whisper Commands to Kill”). The book goes on to unearth the ghastly goingson and macabre manifestations at haunted places such as museums, churches, graveyards, restaurants, and sacred sites while also instructing how to perform a cleansing ritual to rid a home of unwanted spectral visitors. This second edition is updated to include new stories and compelling evidence of both the existence of ghosts and proof of hauntings that will entertain, induce chills, and make the doubtful believe.
Spotlighting news articles, historical accounts, and firstperson interviews, this chronicle of human interactions with monsters will convince even the most hardened skeptic of the existence of the bogeyman, bigfoot, werewolves, and swamp creatures.

From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.
