So glad you dug the book. Thanks so much for letting me know and for the question. I do love all things spooky and macabre, for sure, and the short answer to your question is: No, I don't believe in ghosts, and that's almost solely because I've never had an experience with one despite my life being so intertwined with visiting spook spots. That said, I'm sincerely glad that other people believe. I actually wrote a short essay on this topic, if you're interested: http://www.oddthingsiveseen.com/2016/.... Thanks again for the question.(less)
J.W. Ocker Thank MB in RVA,

Thank MB in RVA,

Glad you dug the book. Unfortunately, it's the publisher who is in charge of any corrections, no myself. Here's an interesting article on it from a few years back: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/...

“Because you trust your house, right? It's your house. It protects you from the world and, even more important, all the people out there. It sees you naked every day. It knows your sins. It's the only place where you are your true self. So when that gets corrupted, when that becomes haunted, that's terrifying.”
J.W. Ocker, Twelve Nights at Rotter House

“It was a strange experience to be looking out the window of an eighteenth-century Chinese house at a seventeenth-century colonial graveyard full of people in twenty-first-century Halloween costumes. Salem, guys.”
J.W. Ocker, A Season with the Witch: The Magic and Mayhem of Halloween in Salem, Massachusetts

“When you place a man like Poe in your rot garden, you need to holy it up real fast, so three years after Poe was buried, they built a church in the graveyard. Actually, they built a church on top of the graveyard.”
J.W. Ocker, Poe-Land: The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allan Poe
