Review from Oregon, WI USA
and deftly presented by paranormal expert Karyn Easton,
Paranormality!: From Angels To Zombies 4000 BC To 2023 AD is a
straightforward timeline and glossary of occult events and terms
which ranges from Ancient Anomalies to the Zenner Cards designed to
test ESP skills. A handy reference filled with brief, factual,
no-nonsense definitions, Paranormality! will prove to be an addition
of seminal and enduring value as an addition to any personal,
academic, or professional occult studies shelf.

Paranormality is not your usual run of
the mill ghost book. It's not a book designed to be read from cover
to cover, more delved into when you need to find that unusual
paranormal term or word as the book is a glossary of paranormal
The book is broken down into two
easy to read sections. Section one is the Timeline, a fascinating
look at various important events of paranormal origin and includes
some amazing facts such as St. Colombo witnessing the Loch Ness
Monster. Section two is an A-Z of paranormal words but it is written
in a way so that it doesn't clash with any other glossary book that
I have read. The words chosen in the A-Z don't tend to appear in
many other publications so this book is a welcome relief for those
irritating words that you cant find anywhere else.
This book is fascinating reading
and is a definite must for any serious paranormal researcher who
needs a glossary of words that don't appear in other publications.
Well done Karyn, a refreshing new
look at an old topic!
A good book,

Basically this is good book,covers a
wide variety of subjects and gives information, but I wish it had
been longer. I learned a lot I didn't know from reading it and
recommend it for people who are interested in this sort of thing.

Being a writer I found Karyn Easton's
book, Paranormality etc very handy as a quick reference guide.
Although not intended to be read from cover to cover, it is chock full of interesting info and while researching under a particular heading one often
finds one's eyes straying to other equally interesting subjects.
My only criticism is that I wish the book was larger, say telephone
book size and cover more equally interesting subjects.
