Preface

“There are more ghosts seen, reported and accepted in the British Isles than anywhere else on earth.”

“It is hardly possible to talk to anyone these days without being told that they know someone who has had a ghostly experience.”

“Whether we know when we have seen one is another matter, for most contemporary ghosts appear to be solid and act naturally - so it may well be that the percentage of people who see ghosts is higher than we think.”

“I have long been of the opinion that 98% of reported hauntings have a natural and mundane explanation.”

“It is the other 2% that have interested me for more than forty years...”

“Writing an autobiography is a daunting task, but not as daunting as my search for truth in the twilight world of ghosts and haunted houses…”

“So come into the unknown with me - if you dare!”
