This fascinating and beautifully photographed guide book follows Cambridgeshire's waterways from leafy Huntingdon to the wide-sky Fens, traveling from the lovely Nene Valley down to the busy port town of Wisbech, and from the gentle stream of the Cam into the architectural glories of the University City of Cambridge. The narrative explores the history of Cambridgeshire through its vanished castles and abbeys, tracing the draining of the wild marshes. Cambridgeshire is a county that is different to all the other English counties, and the watery landscapes of the fens are unique. From the bizarre Straw Bears that lead the hosts of Morris Dancers through the heart of Whittlesey every January, to the sedate Rose Fair that graces Wisbech church and gardens every June, Cambridgeshire has something to offer everyone.

From that cheerful puff of smoke known as Casper to the hunkiest potter living or dead, Sam Wheat, there is probably no more iconic entity in supernatural history than the ghost. And these are just recent examples. From the earliest writings such as the Epic of Gilgamesh to today’s ghost-hunting reality TV shows, ghosts have chilled the air of nearly every era and every culture in human history. In this book, Lisa Morton uses her scholarly prowess—more powerful than any proton pack—to wrangle together history’s most enduring ghosts into an entertaining and comprehensive look at what otherwise seems to always evade our eyes. Tracing the ghost’s constantly shifting contours, Morton asks the most direct question—What exactly is a ghost?—and examines related entities such as poltergeists, wraiths, and revenants. She asks how a ghost is related to a soul, and she outlines all the different kinds of ghosts there are. To do so, she visits the spirits of the classical world, including the five-part Egyptian soul and the first haunted-house, conceived in the Roman playwright Plautus’s comedy, Mostellaria. She confronts us with the frightening phantoms of the Middle Ages—who could incinerate priests and devour children—and reminds us of the nineteenth-century rise of Spiritualism, a religion essentially devoted to ghosts. She visits with the Indian bhuta and goes to the Hungry Ghost Festival in China, and of course she spends time in Mexico, where ghosts have a particularly strong grip on belief and culture. Along the way she gathers the ectoplasmic residues seeping from books and film reels, from the Gothic novel The Castle of Otranto to the 2007 blockbuster Paranormal Activity, from the stories of Ann Radcliffe to those of Stephen King. Wide-ranging, informative, and slicked with over fifty unearthly images, Ghosts is an entertaining read of a cultural phenomenon that will delight anyone, whether they believe in ghosts or not.

Volume 11 contains over 750 pages with a foreword written by retired USAF Colonel Charles Halt - then the Deputy Base Commander of RAF Woodridge - during the now famous UFO incident that has attracted worldwide attention, which took place in late December 1980. Like its predecessors Volumes 8, 9, and 10, it is also in colour but is even larger in pagination, making it excellent value for money. It continues with further chronological reports of UFO activity over Great Britain, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania, for the period 1989-1990. As with the former Volumes, published by the authors, this has been painstakingly and meticulously prepared from over 20 years research. It is priced at 25, which is good value taking into consideration the earlier books (Volumes 1-6, approximately 320 pages in black and white, sold at 14.99). John Hanson and Dawn Holloway, with Brenda Butler, have accumulated a vast amount of information over the years, including material from the late Essex UFO researcher Ron West, which identifies the presence of what has become labelled as appearances of the 'Triangular UFO', sighted over Belgium and Europe towards the end of the 1980s and, on occasion, chased by Air Force Jets. They will show that previously unpublished accounts of a 'wave' of similar sightings around the Essex area are now being brought to the attention of the public, who would not have been aware of how prolific sightings were during that period. Disappointingly, recent attempts to attract the attention of the Essex newspapers and media have been unsuccessful. The authors contend than nothing should be left out, as these books form part of our social history. It is their wish, at great personal expense to themselves, that these unique books will endure and provide future historians of the UFO subject an opportunity to see exactly what took place, rather than fading from history. It also includes an examination of UFO reports covering the period of 1963-1964, including some sightings from the archives of Project Blue Book for the first time. In addition, the Volume outlines the valuable commitment made by the researchers themselves and their efforts to preserve what forms part of our important social history, rather than relying on other dubious sources of information. Unfortunately, despite their greatest efforts, the authors have been unable to secure any reviews of their work by any of the National newspapers, although having sent many books to them. The authors point out that very few of the UFO sighting reports published in the Haunted Skies books will be found in any declassified MOD files."

Curated with loving expertise, these thirteen tales showcase both Windham and Fighs masterful selection of stories and their artful and suspenseful writing style. In crafting stories treasured by children and adults alike, the authors tell much more than ghost tales. Embedded in each is a wealth of fact and folklore about Alabama history and the old South. I dont care whether you believe in ghosts, Windham was fond of saying. The good ghost stories do not require that you believe in ghosts.
