Kicking off a month of Halloween posts is this collection of somewhat true stories related a bit more to spiritualism than the title suggests. For instance it opens with the events at Loudun that Aldous Huxley later wrote a novel about while later chapters cover John Dee and Emanuel Swedenborg. Its approach (narrative, unsourced, all too trusting) is pretty much the same as similar books a century later. The author was a journalist who found a niche turning out popularized history and psychological books.
