Real Government Files on the Unknown
by Nick Redfern and Andy Roberts

  What happens when a medium enters a deep trance? No one knows for sure, even though mediumship dates back to the Greek Oracles and beyond. Today, the practice of channeling spirit guides through hypnotized mediums is hotly debated. This strange phenomenon is either dismissed as a dubious parlor trick, or regarded as a form of communication between this world and the next. Many view “the guides” as a source of love and wisdom… but are they?

For five years Joe Fisher painstakingly investigated the claims of channelers and the mysterious voices that speak through them. Now, published for the first time in the U.S., The Siren Call of Hungry Ghosts is his gripping journey into a realm of darkness and deception. This updated edition includes a new foreword by Colin Wilson, and an epilogue that updates events since the book was first published in the U.K. a decade ago.
  Here’s what reviewers had to say about the First Edition:

“Fisher is a superb writer whose subject matter, outrageous as it must seem to many, is offered up with just the tone of frankness, disbelief and wonder.”
--Patricia Job, Toronto Sunday Sun

“…a riveting detective story full of blind alleys, misplaced trust, deceit, and duplicity, all made doubly inspiring by the fact that none of the ‘suspects’ are this world.”
--Christopher Loudon, Quill & Quire

“…part confessional, part romance, part detective story… No matter what your response, one thing is certain: you won’t go away from this one unaffected.”
--Barbara Gunn, Vancouver Sun
