The World's Most Haunted Places, Revised Edition: From the Secret Files of Ghostvillage.com

In 2004, Jeff Belanger’s book publishing career began with The World’s Most Haunted Places. Since then, the paranormal researcher, lecturer, and talk show host has gone on to produce over a dozen books that have been published in six languages, and he’s become one of the world’s foremost authorities on the unexplained.

Now in its second edition, Belanger revisits some of the most famous haunts with updates, new first-hand accounts, information, and commentary. Plus he’s added new chapters and new locations.

Ghostly legends abound wherever history has made its mark. Battlefields, prisons, asylums, national monuments, all of them have stories to tell. Their ghosts still lurk demanding we remember the past.

They’re real. They’re out there. Jeff Belanger has found them.

  • President Lincoln has been walking the halls of the White House in Washington, D.C., for more than a century.
  • The Queen Mary may just be the most storied and haunted ship on the planet.
  • The catacombs of Paris contain the skeletal remains of six million bodies…and many of their ghosts.
  • For decades, Resurrection Mary has been picked up by motorists on Chicago’s Archer Avenue, only to disappear when they reach Resurrection Cemetery. 
  • The Tower of London is haunted by noblemen and commoners—some still searching for the heads they lost more than 500 years ago. 
  • Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky, was a tuberculosis asylum for many years. Thousands died here, and some are still around.

The World’s Most Haunted Places, Revised Edition: From the Secret Files of Ghostvillage.com, explores the history, folklore, and ghostly legends behind some of the world’s most fascinating points of interest. Objective, educational, and entertaining, Ghostvillage.com’s founder, Jeff Belanger, speaks with first-hand eyewitnesses, psychics, and ghost hunters who tell their stories and share their research on haunted places around the globe.

Take a world tour of history, the supernatural, and the macabre. You will explore libraries, museums, restaurants, inns, and landmarks from North America, South America, Europe, and Australia. But be careful: The World’s Most Haunted Places may make you a believer!
