Personal stories of haunted items. Some I found hard to believe or thought could be explained by the power of suggestion or mental illness and delusions, but I still found this interesting and at the very least got some ideas for stories. I would have liked it if there were pictures of some of these items, but that would have been hard to do for many of them since the people no longer had them. I was especially intrigued by the story of the Wiccan chair.

The author told his tales with tongue in cheek but the people he interviewed told their tales in an authentic voice and the author was able to convey their sincerity.
