Ghost Hunter's Guide to Los Angeles
Publisher: Pelican Publishing
The renowned paranormal investigator and ghost hunter shows tourists, residents, and even nonbelievers where to encounter spirits in the City of Angels.
As useful to the paranormally curious as to locals and adventurers seeking new and unusual spots, Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Los Angeles shows you how and where to seek out the supernatural in Los Angeles and surrounding areas—from Hollywood to Long Beach as well as destinations in nearby San Diego and Santa Barbara.
Suggested stops include familiar locations such as Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, Catalina Island, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Lookout Mountain, and missions like Mission San Juan Capistrano, Mission San Buena Ventura, and more. Many other suggested adventures refer to sights where ghosts of movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, and Howard Hughes have been seen. There are also numerous anecdotes and leads for exploring more obscure supernatural entities like the “murdered waitress,” the “ghost protester,” “indigenous ghosts,” and many other seemingly anonymous spirits around the Los Angeles area.
The appendix is full of references for further exploration, including a list of local ghost tours, historical societies and museums, and an exhaustive list of suggested books, Internet resources, films, and national organizations relating to ghostly communications. A handy sighting report form is included to assist witnesses in the case of an encounter.
“Jeff Dwyer has done it again. Easily one of the best Ghost Story writers working today. You will never look at the City of Angels the same way.” —Ray Couch, Southern Ghosts
