    “Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places” By Colin Dickey 

    28953623“Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places”
    By Colin Dickey
    Narrated by: Jon Lindstrom
    Length: 10 hrs and 48 mins
    Release date: 10-04-16
    Publisher: Penguin Audio

    Not so long ago Ghost Hunting was an interesting trend.  There were several TV shows dedicated to finding spirits.  They never set out to debunk the ghosts in question only to prove.  I jumped on that bandwagon for a bit, thinking it would be great to find that piece of evidence that would finally prove ghosts exist.  After a few years of hitting up some haunts all we discovered is that some prescription drugs don’t mix and create hallucinations, old buildings make noise, and our eyes and ears play tricks on us.

    Colin Dickey sets out to explore this trend with some of the United States’ most reported haunted places.  It seems that all phenomenon has some explanation and can be debunked.   I think it all comes down to what you set out to do whether to prove or disprove, you will support your theory.  Dickey does bring up a lot of evidence to support that most of the reported hauntings simply prey upon our desire to explain and entertain.

    Breaking it down this book is not necessarily about hauntings and ghosts so much as how haunting and ghost stories are ways we tell and deal with the stories of American history and culture. This is a fascinating exploration of the psychology and anthropology of our “haunted” United States.

    This book takes some of the country’s best known haunted sites and proceeds to psychologically debunk them. In the downslide of the nations’s latest Spiritualism and Ghost hunting craze this is what we all need to bring us back to earth.  I’ve since sold all my ghost hunting tools.

    Publisher’s Summary
    An intellectual feast for fans of offbeat history, Ghostland takes listeners on a road trip through some of the country’s most infamously haunted places – and deep into the dark side of our history.

    Colin Dickey is on the trail of America’s ghosts. Crammed into old houses and hotels, abandoned prisons and empty hospitals, the spirits that linger continue to capture our collective imagination, but why? His own fascination piqued by a house hunt in Los Angeles that revealed derelict foreclosures and “zombie homes”, Dickey embarks on a journey across the continental United States to decode and unpack the American history repressed in our most famous haunted places. Some have established reputations as “the most haunted mansion in America” or “the most haunted prison”; others, like the haunted Indian burial grounds in West Virginia, evoke memories from the past our collective nation tries to forget.

    With boundless curiosity, Dickey conjures the dead by focusing on questions of the living – how do we, the living, deal with stories about ghosts, and how do we inhabit and move through spaces that have been deemed, for whatever reason, haunted? Paying attention not only to the true facts behind a ghost story but also to the ways in which changes to those facts are made – and why those changes are made – Dickey paints a version of American history left out of the textbooks, one of things left undone, crimes left unsolved. Spellbinding, scary, and wickedly insightful, Ghostland discovers the past we’re most afraid to speak of aloud in the bright light of day is the same past that tends to linger in the ghost stories we whisper in the dark.

    Audiobook Review: “The Perhapanauts in ‘Monsters Among Us, or, Chimaera Wanna Tellya Somethin'”

    Audiobook Review: “The Perhapanauts in ‘Monsters Among Us, or, Chimaera Wanna Tellya Somethin'”

    Adapted from the graphic novel series The Perhapanauts by Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau by Todd Dezago and Elaine Lee

    Full Cast Performance

    Published by AudioComics Company.

    Length: 51 mins

     

    I have been a comic book fan for over 40 years (yeah, I’m that old) and have read them for as long as I can remember. Comic books are fun, exciting and even help in the development of vocabulary and reading skills. I knew an English professor that for part of the semester he would hand out comic books and have the class read them and point out the language used is much more than what you would expect. I never took his class but I’m sure it would have been a blast.

     

    So as I grow older I seem to have less time for comic books. Many are available in digital format for reading on the computer and tablets, but even so, time is a limited asset. I have been a consumer of audiobooks for many years and have loved the fact that I can use my work commute, shower time, household chore time and various other times to “read” a good book. Thanks to a few very creative audiobook publishing companies, comic books can now be presented in audio format. One of the difficulties of bringing a comic book to life in an audiobook form is, well, let’s face it, the art work.

     

    To make up for the lack of the visual aspect of the artwork many these publishing companies bring the comic to life with excellent voice actors, stunning sound effects and an all round aural ambiance that make these audiobooks as complete of an experience as absorbing the visual artwork of a comicbook. AudioComics Company does this so well that each time I see one of their creations come available, I jump on it and give it a listen as soon as possible.

     

    This time around I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, I just knew it was an audiobook created by AudioComics based on a comic book. “The Perhapanauts” is a  comic book series featuring the creations of writer Todd Dezago (Sensational Spider-Man, Tellos, Young Justice) and Craig Rousseau (Impulse, Batman Beyond, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane). Adapted from the comics by Todd Dezago and Elaine Lee, the audiobook is a new story based on the existing comics.

     

    What can you expect, well the Perhapanauts team is controlled by the organization called Bedlam, the team isbuilt around characters from cryptozoological tales. The leader is Big, a sasquatch, who has a super-genius I.Q. The rest of the team include; Chooie, a chupacabra, Molly, a ghost, Karl, a mothman and others.

     

    In this audio premiere of the series a new member of the team is told of one of the past about the team’s mission against the shape-shifting Chimaera. While an exciting adventure about how the team uses their unique skills/powers to capture the Chimaera there is something else going on in the telling of the story. Very unique story with some great twists, turns and fun dialogue that make this a series that will get you hooked and wanting for more.

     

    I have added the Perhapanauts comics to my list of to read comics, when time avails itself to me, but until then I’m going to be hanging on the edge waiting for the next in this series from AudioComics Company.

    “Immortality, Inc.” by Robert Sheckley 

    “Immortality, Inc.”
    by Robert Sheckley
    read by Bronson Pinchot
    published by Blackstone Audio (2011)
    Approx 6 hours.

    Okay first of all I want to apologize for the time between reviews, this time around I have picked 2 long audiobooks and one extremely long printed book. But soon I’ll be back on track. They have all been worth it, especially squeezing in this 6 hour fun journey into the future.

    I knew this was the right book to be listening to, right now, because of the subject matter and the side stories created. First of all this book is a nice piece of classic science-fiction that involves time travel and immortality. So right there you know this is going to be interesting. But the book also involves ghosts, spirits, the afterworld, hauntings, and zombies. The cool part of this was that, of the other books I was reading or hearing at the time, one was a zombie book, one was a time travel book and then there’s this one. As for the ghosts, well, in case you didn’t know it I’m also a paranormal investigator with a local group (on facebook http://www.facebook.com/psiofi ) and one of the side ventures I was doing that may have helped to delay this book was a little ghost hunting on the side, so all the subjects covered in this were fitting in with all my other projects.

    “Immortality, Inc.” was first published in 1959 and gave a bit of a grim look at humanity’s future. Sheckley’s unsettling vision of the future is told in a bit of a witty sort of way so as not to be one of those depressing dystopian novels, like “1984” or “A Brave New World,” I loved those books, but every time I read them I get just a bit depressed. This book however had some fun moments. In fact there is one moment in the book that is so humorous it was represented in the animated series “Futurama.” The moment is when the main character, Tom Blaine, finds himself transplanted from the year 1958 to the year 2110 and in trying to escape the hustle and bustle of the city of the future, finds himself in line for a suicide booth.

    This story was said to be the basis of the 1992 film “Freejack,” starring Emilio Esteves and Mick Jagger. But from what I remember of the film, Hollywood took some creative license and mucked around with the story quite a bit. I’m going to have to rent that again and compare sometime soon.

    Before I get into the meat and potatoes of this intriguing and thought provoking sci-fi piece of art, I need to first talk about the reader. Bronson Pinchot is the reader, and after listening to the whole book, I have to say he does a superb job. I will admit that starting out the story I was worried because he seemed to be delivering the story in a very dry manner, but looking back that worked for the intro. As the story progressed and the characters started making their appearance, Pinchot shined. His ability to create voices for the separate characters was stunning. In some cases it was quite comical and worked perfectly with the humor written into the story. My favorite was his representation of a sleazy “transplant” street seller. Transplant is the ability to place your mind into any other body (and it doesn’t necessarily have to be human) and the salesman was like the combination of a pimp and one of those old trench coat wearing counterfeit watch sellers, and the picture i got while he voiced the guy almost made me feel slimy listening. Bravo!

    So, what’s this story about anyway? Well, Tom Blaine dies in a car crash in 1958 only to wake up alive in the year 2011. The Rex Corporation has taken Tom’s essence, soul, spirit from the past and put it into a “donated” body. The breakthrough of time travel is not new, but this form of transplanting the soul through time is new. They plan on using Tom as their poster-child for the process, until they learn the Government won’t allow this process. So they shut down all the plans to use Tom. He is released from Rex Corporation and goes out to explore the world in his new body. Maria Thorn, a representative from Rex Corporation soon rescues Tom from a body snatcher and helps him to properly view life. Body Snatchers take young healthy bodies (people) and kill them to allow the older rich people to reincarnate into them.

    The rich can do this legally but the illegal bodies are usually healthier and easier to come by. In fact, one of the doctors that brought Blaine over to 2110, is about to be reincarnated into a young body, but something goes wrong and the doctor is pushed out in the process by another spirit. The other spirit takes too much time acquiring the new body and becomes what is known in the year 2110 as a zombie. A zombie is a spirit that inhabits a body but the body is still dead and decaying fast.

    This zombie soon starts following Tom around, because he has some tie to Tom but cannot fulfill his mission until he remembers what that is. The zombie population help Tom escape when Tom is placed on a wanted list, but the threat of the one zombie still lingers.

    Tom is soon hunted down and after receiving conditioning to be able to make the journey into the afterlife, by being gifted with hereafter insurance, the Rex Corporation wants to kill him to cover up their crime of saving a soul without prior written consent. Tom then has to travel the world to escape the hunting squads and to find what the purpose of the zombie’s constant companionship.

    A story about man’s future and how even after finding there is an afterlife, humanity finds a way to ruin that. Some funny moments and even some nice thrilling moments. This should be added to any true sci-fi fan’s library.

    “Ghost Hunters: William James and the Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death” by Deborah Blum 

    “Ghost Hunters: William James and the Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death”
    by Deborah Blum
    read by George K. Wilson
    Produced by Sound Library (2006)
    approx 13 hours

    It seems to be a recent trend to go out and try to find proof of the existence of ghosts, spirits and all things paranormal.  We have “reality” TV shows showing ghost hunters and search amazon.com for ghost hunting and you can find all sorts of equipment that theoretically aids the hunt for ghosts.  But this trend has been with humankind ever since we began burying our dead and trying to find out what happens next.  Pulitzer prize winning writer, Deborah Blum takes a look at some 19th Century ghost hunting int the book, “Ghost Hunters: William James and the Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death.”  During this time period Harvard professor William James, remembered more for his contributions to psychology and philosophy than psychical research, was one of the early leaders in scientific research aimed ultimately at determining whether consciousness survives bodily death.

    From the mediums speaking to the spirit of a dead girl to find her body to tricksters using various contraptions to fool the audience, several members of society’s Intelligencia (both British and American) were looking to prove or disprove psychical arts.  William James sought out to apply objective scientific methods to the study of paranormal phenomena.  Many times a fraud was found but sometimes during this book you just have to wonder.

    Deborah Blum tells this story of intellectuals, philosophers, pyschologists, Nobelists from the 19th Century into the early part of the 20th Century trying to bridge the gap between science and religion when religion was being questioned by the theory of evolution and the the new sciences.  I found it quite interesting as to how many folks were out to fool the public in the name of talking to the dead.  I had listened to the Mary Roach book “Spook” and she also talked of the the same fakes trying to earn a buck by holding seances.  In fact, this book would make a great companion to that book or vice versa.

    The narrator George K. Wilson (no relation) does a superb job of narrating the book and even throws in some voice changes and accents when representing quotes from various people in this documentary.  I have also heard some other books read by Wilson and I have decided that any documentary or non-fiction audio book I look at I will immediately get the book if he is the reader.  He has a way that presents the story or information with no opinion yet keeps the information very interesting to hear.

    So, if the study of the paranormal or you’re thinking about becoming a ghost hunter like on TV, check out the history of debunking and proof in this book.

    “Ghost Story” The Dresden Files, Book 13 by Jim Butcher 

    “Ghost Story”
    The Dresden Files, Book 13
    by Jim Butcher
    read by John Glover
    Produced by Penguin Audiobooks
    Approx. 18 hours.

    Whew! I just finished the latest novel in the Dresden Files series from Jim Butcher, and let me tell you I’m relieved.  In the last book, “Changes,” Harry Dresden died, worse yet, he was assassinated.  I, along with many other Dresden fans, were left hanging.  I mean, c’mon, it can’t end this way…Harry can’t die!  Okay, he’s not immortal, but really, it IS called the “DRESDEN Files.”  I had to wait about a whole year to find out what happened.  I know in comic books they sometimes bring back heroes from the dead, but I really didn’t know how Jim Butcher was going to get by with this one.  Sure he’s written a novel about Spider-Man and knows the tricks, but with the Wizard Harry Dresden, that’s not the same.

    Finally I got to put the audiobook on and sit back and listen.  But wait, the publishers threw another curve at us fans.  Really it wasn’t the publisher’s fault but, Wow! it was a big problem.  James Marsters, who has become the voice of Harry Dresden in the audio books, was not available for the production.  If you don’t know, all these novels are told in first person, and Marsters made Dresden POP!  Marsters became Dresden and vice versa.  So who do we get now?  John Glover.  To give Glover some cred, he did portray Lionel Luther in the TV series of Smallville, and he knew the kind of superhero attitude that lives within Harry Dresden.  Okay, I’ll give him that.  I can’t say that he did a bad job of this, because he didn’t, in fact when voicing the other characters in the story, Glover shined, but it just wasn’t Marsters voice behind Harry.  It seemed more of an inconvenience but as the story progressed, Glover did a great job, I just have a thing for Marsters’ voice as Harry.  Had I never heard the Marsters version I would say Glover was awesome, but for right now Marsters is my favorite, just like Tom Baker is my favorite Doctor from the Doctor Who series.   Sure other actors do a great job, but I will always hold my favorite.  Maybe I can look back later and say Marsters was a great Harry Dresden and Glover was a great Harry Dresden’s Ghost.

    We start out this story with Chicago’s resident wizard, Harry Dresden, contemplating his death.  He sees the light down the tunnel, but lo’ and behold, the light is a train.  Harry is ready to take this head on when he is whisked away from the tracks from Carmichael, a former Chicago Police Officer that specialized in paranormal type of crimes.  Harry saw Carmichael ripped to shreds by a loup garou years ago, so he knew he was still dead, the problem is what is going on.  Carmichael takes Harry to the police station in the “In Between” Chicago, where Harry is told that before he moves on he must find out who killed him.  If Harry doesn’t do this 3 people in Harry’s life will be hurt.

    Harry had just recently found out he had a daughter and was assassinated just after he saved her by wiping out the entire race of Red Court Vampires.  This genocidal act was done by pulling some favors from some unsavory characters and created a void in the supernatural power struggle of the world.  When Harry is sent back to Chicago (as a ghost) 6 months have passed since his death and the world has changed reflecting that void trying to be filled.  His first stop is at the home of Morty the Ectomancer (one who can communicate with spirits).  He finds Morty’s home under attack by wraiths and being guarded by ghosts of Morty’s ancestors.

    After a very cool battle Harry learns some of the secrets of being a ghost.  First off ghosts’ power comes from memories, and in order to fight one must expend that memory energy, but the cost is that with each expended memory the ghost loses a little of itself until it becomes a murderous wraith.  Harry’s magic as a wizard is no longer effective against the living and he becomes a beginner in relearning the magicks of the ghost world.

    Harry then learns what has happened to his old friends, Karrin Murphy, a former Chicago cop who now fight against the supernatural threat with a team of werewolves, vikings (courtesy of the mob boss Gentleman John Marcone) and Waldo Butters, former coroner now the owner of Bob, the spirit form of a former wizard now the supernatural equivalent of the internet.  Occasionally they get the help of Harry’s former apprentice, Molly, who seems to have lost a bit of her mind in the battle against the Red Court and now goes by the name of “The Rag Lady.”

    Helping his former friends now becomes a priority and Harry seems to have forgotten his task of solving his murder.  But leave it to Harry (via the great writing of Jim Butcher) to manage to work the two into the same task.    Throughout the story Harry gets hints as to who his murderer is but can’t seem to grasp the answer.  Here’s where I was a bit miffed, because I had it figured out at the first hint.  But through the twists and turns that make the Dresden Files stories so great we find out why Harry doesn’t get it.  (Thank you Jim Butcher for the awesome storytelling.)

    Another thing that grabbed me at first was why wasn’t Harry’s Brother, Thomas, not involved? What Happened!?!?  But alas Butcher had that figured out as well.  Yep, this is one of those books that you have to get to the very end before it all soaks in.  Great Stuff.

    But what happens next?  I think I’ve got it figured out, and yes it looks like Butcher will be releasing a new book in the series, “Cold Days,” so it looks like we’ll get more.  Again, I say, “Whew!”

    “The Ghost Hunter’s Field Guide” by Margie Kay 

    “The Ghost Hunter’s Field Guide”
    by Margie Kay
    Published 2010 by 7th Planet
    204 pages

    With the emerging world of digital technology, especially audio and video, it seems that ghost hunting is the thing to do.  You see it all over cable television and for years many communities have some sort of paranormal society or ghost hunters.  If you think you may want to take up the night vision goggles and camera and find your own phantasm, this may be the book for you.

    Margie Kay has put together a handbook for the professional or amateur ghost hunter with a personal touch.  Through her years of ghost hunting (33 or so to give you an idea) Margie has had her share of experiences in the paranormal.  She is a trained psychic and paranormal investigator and has been instrumental in solving over 30 missing persons cases, numerous homicides and thefts using her unique clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, and remote viewing abilities, which she has honed over the years with amazing results.  She has amazed investigators and law enforcement with her abilities and accuracy, in some cases getting names, addresses, streets, and license plates as well as descriptions of victims and perpetrators.  And she still finds time to hunt ghosts.

    In this book she not only gives a great checklist of the items to take on your next paranormal adventure, but she even provides hints on how to acquire some items, even when budgets are tight. Such as some children’s toys that could be helpful, or even checking out eBay for some good deals.

    Margie uses her experiences to tell the reader how to handle different situations and what to expect in many situations.  Through the book are stories of how many of her haunted experiences have gone, from her team being called in to investigate dark shadowy figures haunting a house to what could be recorded impressions from past events while setting up shop in historical downtown Independence, Missouri.

    Not only did this book provide nice how to information but also what to do to invite the spirits to “show” themselves.  Many of the television shows about ghost hunters approach with a view to try to debunk the hauntings first, kind of like a scientific approach.  Margie uses that but also throws in the mix a spiritual/psychic level to the experience so that maybe all that cannot be explained can be observed in a reasonable light.  While the information was very nice, I have to admit reading the various experiences she talks about was some fun reading that sometimes, I had to make sure the room from where I was reading was well lit.

    Margie closes out the book with an extensive list of haunted sites you can visit and do your own phantasmagorical research.  In this list she provides contact info as well as whether or not the sites are open to public or if you have to call in advance to arrange private sessions.

    There are also listings of Radio/TV ghost hunting broadcasts that you can tune in and get hints.

    So, whether you are a professional Ghost Hunter, hobbyist, or simply curious this book would be the perfect handbook, to keep in your bag of tricks.

    “In Odd We Trust” Written by Queenie Chan & Dean Koontz 

    “In Odd We Trust”
    Written by Queenie Chan & Dean Koontz
    Illustrations by Queenie Chan
    Published 2009 by Del Rey

    Have you ever read a comic book?  I love comic books.  Stephen King turned his “Dark Tower” series into a comic book series, Clive Barker has some comics based on some of his stories and so has Dean Koontz.  It looks like Dean Koontz “Frankenstein” series is out in comic book form.  What a great genre for authors such as these.  There is a specialized genre of comics originated by the Japanese called “Manga.” Manga comics not only tell great stories but feature some very unique illustrations.  At the same time Manga comics have some fun quirks, like large eyes, extremely large tear drops to show sadness or exasperation, but they are very fun to read.

    That’s what this review is about.  Dean Koontz created the series of “Odd Thomas” books (4, so far) that tells the story of a young humble every man that has 2 special gifts.  The first and foremost is that he sees dead people.  Not only does he see them but he does something about it.  Let me explain further for the uninformed.  Odd Thomas (yep, that’s the name his parents gave him) sees the recently departed or rather, souls that have died but haven’t yet moved on.  Usually the reason they haven’t moved on is that they’ve been murdered and Odd must solve their murder before they can move on.  There is the exception of one soul, that of  “The King,” Elvis himself.  Odd doesn’t know why “The King” hasn’t moved on or why he has chosen Odd’s home town of Pico Mundo, California, to hang out, but he is pretty good company.  The recently departed cannot talk, Odd doesn’t know why and this makes things a bit harder when it comes to solving murders.  By the way, in the later books by Dean Koontz, Elvis moves on and Frank Sinatra hangs out with Odd.

    This manga comic is a prequel to the books written by Koontz and is co-written by Manga author/illustrator Queenie Chan.  Queenie Chan has published several manga novels through TokyoPop.

    This story is full of the twists and turns that Dean Koontz puts into every Odd Thomas novel.  A child in Pico Mundo has been murdered and since Odd can see the boy’s ghost, it is up to Odd to solve this crime.  It turns out the kid’s nanny is being stalked and when the stalker tried to deliver an eerie letter to the nanny the little boy was home from school early and the stalker killed him.  What happens next is that Odd must find out who the killer/stalker is and keep him from killing another easy target.

    Remember this is a Dean Koontz novel as well as a Queenie Chan manga and just when you think you have it solved, another turn in the story comes up and throws it all out of whack.  The illustrations that push the story along are brilliant and the story follows great in the Odd Thomas collection.
