The Otherworld or Glimpses of the Supernatural

This book is volume II of Frederick George Lee’s theological exploration paranormal phenomenon using historical documents. The first volume will only be of interest to the devout Christian (and even many modern Christians will be offended by the views of Lee) but this volume is of interest to anyone investigating apparitions and materialization of ghosts and spirits, even with the authors theological bent. The original was published in the the late 1800s so don’t expect much New Age philosophizing as the book is written in a plain, newspaper journalism style that sets the stage for Charles Fort’s works (like Wild Talents) a few decades later.

Of interest to many will be his chapters on Spiritualism which gives some good history of the faith and discusses different types of mediumship in depth without the romance or hysterics found in other writings:
