A ghost is an apparition of a person, now deceased, that manifests itself as a living being. But that is only part of the story, and other cultures have paranormal phenomena of their own which have been absorbed into their mythology stretching back through time. This book examines many of the classic cases of hauntings around the world. Not only does it discuss the ghostly tales of kings, queens, nobles, murderers and their victims, and the real story behind "The Exorcist," but it also reveals the ghostly phenomena connected with more modern celebrities, from James Dean to Elvis Presley. Also examined in detail are chilly apparitions of ghost animals, inanimate objects, and even haunted places from the classic haunted house to a possessed shopping mall.
