booksBooks on Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal

These are a few notable authors I have found who have written about Ghost Hunting, Ghost Investigation or the paranormal. Some I have read and some I haven't.

With this being such a massive subject I will add any authors that I find, but I fear I will leave off many great paranormal writers. and for this I apologise in advance.

So, what is this book all about? The book is a collection of short stories on the subject of mysterious happenings of a paranormal nature. I haven't confined myself just to the spirit world either. I have written stories about UFO's, secret government experiments, vampires, time-slips. In fact, anywhere my imagination happened to take me.
