Arthur Conan Doyle: Ghost Hunter

By June 17, 2012

Follow me on:

nullNo, this is not some supernatural fantasy like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries really was a paranormal investigator and ghost hunter, who attended séances, befriended the world's top psychic mediums, and sought explanations for haunted houses and poltergeist activity.

Doyle even had a few ghostly encounters himself, including one that whispered in his ear in the dead of night, a pair of ghosts in an ancient haunted church, an anxious ghost in search of missing papers, and a bothersome poltergeist case about which Doyle and a skeptic had very different  views. Read all about it.
