During the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the study of paranormal activity was a gentleman's game. The most exclusive and serious investigators of hauntings, apparitions, and unexplained phenomena were members of The Ghost Club, founded in 1862, with Charles Dickens as a founding member. Narrating this straightforward history with a sense of homespun curiosity, author and podcaster Kate Winkler Dawson guides listeners through a who's who of spiritualists, like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who experimented with seances and telepathy; William Butler Yeats, who was fascinated by mysticism; and Harry Price, who excelled at scientific research in these areas. The Club continues to this day, meeting monthly at a pub in central London. The author proudly states that she has become a member. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
