No Common Task: The Autobiography of a Ghost-Hunter

“It is hardly possible to talk to anyone these days...”

“...without being told that they know someone…”

“...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…”

“...I have dwelt in particular with my adventures...”

“...and the various personalities I have met...”

“...in my search for truth...”

“...in the twilight world...”

“...of ghosts and haunted houses...”

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