From shimmering specters to paranormal parlor tricks to late night encounters with a Thing That Should Go Unnamed, we are fascinated with, terrified by, and addicted to the ghost story. Varla Ventura's Paranormal Parlor includes original supernatural tales, classic ghost stories, legends, hauntings, séances, superstitions, and death customs.

This book showcases a chilling collection of startling ghost stories as told to the author as well as legendary ghosts and haunted locations and an overview of the paranormal parlor games that rose to popularity in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. It also includes hidden history such as the story of Mark Twain's ghost, the quiet horror writings of the architect who started the Gothic Revival movement (Ralph Adams Cram), Charles Dickens' Haunted House book; and the secret lives of upstanding citizens who conducted séances, wrote ghostly romances, and more.


Varla Ventura is the author of Fairies, Pookas and Changelings; Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires and Other Creatures of the Night; Among the Mermaids; The Book of the Bizarre; and Beyond Bizarre. She can often be found lurking about the deep dark woods and lakes of Minnesota on the hunt for mushrooms, magical herbs, and the elusive little men of legend.
