The First Book To Take A Hard Look At The Phenomenon Called "The Ouija Board"

Is it just a game? When you ask the Ouija board a question, who is it that answers? What about those stories of Ouija-inspired prophecy and clairvoyance?

What are the dangers of the Ouija board? Do you know the stories of Ouija-inspired murders, madness, obsession and possession?

Exalted by some, condemned by others, there's no doubt the Ouija is controversial. In this fascinating book Stoker Hunt investigates the history and legacy of this "Mystic Talking Oracle."

An odd little book, giving pros and cons of Ouija Board usage. I'm not sure that we ever find out which side of the road Mr. Hunt is on. When he is recounting "pro" stories, he is just as enthusiastic as when he is recounting "con" stories. A very even-handed presentation. Read full review
