Haunted Houses (Fact or Fiction?)by Terry O'neill
Synopses & Reviews
Nearly every community has a haunted house somewhere in its midst. But are these "spirited" places truly haunted, or are there more mundane explanations? This book looks at several famous haunted houses from the perspectives of those who have witnessed the hauntings and those who have investigated them. Among the hauntings are Toronto's MacKenzie house, California's Whaley House, and Borley Rectory, "the most haunted house in England."
Do witches have the power to influence events? Can psychic mediums communicate with the dead? Are UFOs from other planets? These and other questions come under scrutiny in the "Fact or Fiction? series. These anthologies expose the occult, the paranormal, and the mysterious to the light of critical thinking. In each volume, experts, scholars, and enthusiasts present arguments for and against the existence of a mysterious phenomenon, event, or legend. A general introduction orients the reader to the topic, and an in-depth epilogue gives readers tools with which to analyze the articles by applying the methods of hypothetical reasoning. Readers will be challenged not only to reevaluate their own preconceived notions, but also to rigorously apply critical thinking skills to the arguments for and against these phenomena. Its many features combine to make "Fact or Fiction? an ideal tool for debate and critical thinking on some of the world's most intriguing topics.
