Proposed revival of Journal meetings.

Back in the 1960s, there was a series of fairly well-attended meetings for discussion of recent articles in the Journal. Now that we have our own meeting room available for extra activities there is to be a try-out meeting on Wednesday 8th June to see if this proposal appeals to sufficient numbers. If there is enough support, then such meetings would take place subsequently in May and November. We now have articles in the Paranormal Review to consider as well as those from the Journal, and, at this forthcoming meeting, the matters to be broached arise from the latest issues of both publications.

Ghostology: The Art of the Ghost Hunter, by Steven T Parsons

From the publisher’s website: Ghostology is simply the study of Ghosts. It is not just about ghost hunting, neither is it is about parapsychology.

The study of ghosts – Ghostology – is not trying to capture apparitions on camera, although that is sometimes a part of it. It is not trying to record the sounds and the voices of the deceased or of spirits, although that too is a part of it. Ghostology is the holistic study of a fascinating aspect of our humanity, a shared human experience that dates back to the earliest civilisations and is common to all of them.

Ghostology is not a “How to guide” for those seeking to investigate ghosts but it provides an up-to-date consideration and a discussion of the many methods and techniques that will prove helpful to anyone interested in the subject, for those who actively seek ghosts or who are merely interested in discovering more about this fascinating subject.
