Product Details


“A fantastic book.”—Ben Kissel, co-host of Last Podcast on the Left

“This fascinating and lavishly illustrated compendium pulls back the veil on some of the strangest moments in the paranormal.”—Cult of Weird

“Using humor, fun illustrations and interesting anecdotes that will appeal to readers of all ages, Hartzman makes the serious point that ghost stories say as much about the world of the living as they do about the dead.”—BookPage

“An extraordinary, documented, inherently fascinating, and entertaining study.”Midwest Book Review

“Like a psychopomp on the river Styx, author Marc Hartzman transports us to the world of the spirits. Inside this delightful haunted history, dead celebrities write books, mediums levitate seventy feet above the ground, and a horse named ‘Lady Wonder’ predicts the future. Chasing Ghosts demonstrates just how deeply the supernatural is embedded in culture and makes a compelling case for those who don’t take ghosts literally to consider them seriously.”Shannon Taggart, author of Séance

“If you’re looking for a good book on the subject [of ghosts] that’s comprehensive but not crushingly so….it’s great…It allows you to draw your own conclusions. Believers and skeptics alike I think would really really enjoy this book. I’m certainly glad I spent time with it.”—John Goforth, co-host of Hysteria 51 

“A perfect guide that takes you through much of the unknown and fascinating world of Ghosts. As someone who has produced many hours of paranormal programming for many years, I highly recommend reading this entertaining and informational guide.”—Michael Yudin, executive producer of Ghost Adventures and president of MY Entertainment

“A fun, readable, and most importantly informative look at ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists, séances, mediums, and spirit communication throughout history and culture.”—Loyd Auerbach, parapsychologist, paranormal investigator and Instructor, Rhine Education Center

“A lively primer on all things paranormal. This book covers the gamut from ancient times to modern tech, and everything relevant in between. Chasing Ghosts should be required reading for any ghost tour guide!”—Andrea Janes, Owner and Founder of Boroughs of the Dead: Macabre New York City Walking Tours

“Marc Hartzman perfectly balances his skepticism with boundless curiosity. His sincere desire to trace the origins of history’s most famous ghost stories results in a spine-tingling survey of the supernatural. Read it with the lights on!”—Lindsey Fitzharris, Bestselling Author of The Butchering Art
