From "Afterlife" to "Zener Cards," Spiritualism and the Supernatural: An Entertaining Encyclopedia for Believers and Skeptics Alike is your complete guide to the world of spirits and superstitions. Its 300+ entries range from 19th century Spiritualists to modern paranormal parlance. The encyclopedia approaches topics from multiple perspectives: neutral researcher, ardent believer and committed skeptic. This witty (sometimes irreverent) compilation appeals to all three, and reads more like an entertaining history of the supernatural rather than the in-depth reference work that it is.
