This was one of my favourite boots as a kid. Full of true paranormal cases and lots of 'bloody' pictures, but written in a way so a young child could understand. I was in heaven.

Why I mention it now is that it came up in conversation with Pollen101 the other night and it turned out to be one of her faves as a kid also. Does anyone else remember this classic publication. The picture of the ghost woman of Glamis Castle with her tongue ripped out was one that I use to love the most, as well as the floating blue head covered in blood!

Sounds a good one, what age range is it aimed at? Might be one my seven year old would look at. As he's already reading some of my books.

I think I was around 9 or 10 when I discovered it. Some of the pics are quite graphic but I think we mollycoddle kids too much nowadays anyhow. It will be long out of print but I reckon it will keep turning up on ebay from time to time.

Sounds just down Camerons street, I wouldn't worry about Graphic pics, He watches stuff like The Evil Dead Movies and Texas Chainsaw Mascre and it still dont give him nightmares.

He's very mature and grown up for his age, nothing seems to shock him, Im just sick of him pinching my books.
