On Our Shelves Now
City historian, ghost guide and paranormal lecturer Chet Caskey has teamed up with Spokane's most respected psychic, Dr. Candess Campbell, to compile this comprehensive guide to the ghosts, notorious murderers and psychopaths that have left their marks-- and spiritual energy-- on places we visit and pass by daily. Not only is this book an essential guide for those with a need for an authoritative source on paranormal activity in Spokane, but its easy and often humorous style makes for an enjoyable read for life-long city residents and visitors alike.
Caskey & Campbell document over a hundred paranormally active sites in and around Spokane, providing historical and psychic correlations for many of the apparitions reported. In addition to district-by-district coverage of the city's paranormal profile, topics such as Fairchild Air Force Base's darker side, Spokane's cemeteries, public disasters, curses, train wrecks, aircraft disasters, serial killers, axe murderers, and even cannibals are discussed.
For those with curiosity about Spokane's eccentrics, exhibitionists, and deeply disturbed figures, a chapter covers strange and unusual people of the city.
Special sections of the book deal with ghost hunting equipment and herbal preparations with spiritual effects.
We all sensed Spokane was a bizarre and mildly dark place. Here, finally, is documented proof of those fears!
