True Haunting

Posted by Ed Becker on July 10, 2011 at 1:30 AM

I want to say "Thank You" to all my readers. I never expected this would be such a success. Aside from telling our story, I hoped to convey the futility in seeking assistance forty years ago. I also hoped to convey the emotional toll this type of activity can bring. I never expected to have validated so many people who have had similar occurrences. I am now contemplating writing another book made up of stories I have collected. Marsha and I really appreciate the emails of concern which have been overwhelming. To answer the most common question: Yes, the building still exists. It is for sale and has been for some years. I really wonder how many years in the last 40 has it not been for sale? Those that saw his review on Amazon, “Dave” our first tenant contacted me. “Dave” actually could have added another chapter, for much as I never shared in order not to feed his fears, he never shared the routine activity he and his wife experienced before moving out. After living with multiple spirits and maintaining a friendship with an exorcist and a psychic, we know quite a lot about these entities, and I would doubt anyone who considers themselves “experts.” We have only learned enough not to interact with entities that you have literally no control over and whose intentions and strength can vary greatly! Although times have changed and we acknowledge the various phenomena, not a lot has changed as it is still considered a form of entertainment in many cases. We know that ghosts and demons exist. I worry about the people that go about chasing them, because they have no idea what they may actually catch!

I finished "True Haunting" last week in just two sittings. I've read extensively about the paranormal and, in fact, the first house I owned (in Baltimore) was haunted. I want you to know that, of all the many books I've read on ghosts and hauntings, "True Haunting" was one of the very best. You are an excellent story teller and certainly know how to maintain the momentum of the story. It's one of those books I didn't want to end. Just a note that, as a proposal writer and editor, I did find the typos a bit distracting, but overall, they didn't really matter because the story was so intense. Thank you for writing it.

Best regards,
Dave McCardell

Mr. Becker,

I just finished reading this story. With my own beliefs and experiences, my heart goes out to you and your family. I would have liked more of an update on the building, though. Very well told.

Hi, As far as the building, I only know that it is currently for sale and has been for a few years. Had I the interest, I wonder how many years in the last 40 has it NOT been for sale? Honestly, we had little interest in the building as it only brought back memories of futility and tension. ED

I've read many 'true story' type books about hauntings, and yours was one of the best. Very well written, very descriptive, quite interesting. Thanks for such a thought provoking story!

Paranormal.witness did a believable believable account chronically your experiences without it being bookie. I felt your horror as well as many viewers. God speed to you for getting out of there as soon as you did.
This world in which we live in has much more mysteries that we have learned in our short time on this planet. Years from know we may know the true extent and how to deal with these horrors..
Thank you for coming forward and letting us into your lives. I hope you are still married!!! Marsha was one tough chic!

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found it a compulsive read. The candor made it very compelling, exciting and it's sad nature was touching. The humanity of it all was pervasive and gives credibility to an often marginalized, mocked and sensationalized subject.

A second book following the history of the house up to the present would be an instant purchase for me. Hint, hint.

The intensity and variety of personalities in the house sounded very strong. Do you think any modern teams could have a positive impact on the house and it's non-corporeal inhabitants? Much like the living, it seems troubled souls are beyond people's helping hand some of the time. When I see people on the street in the city that are not well- talking to themselves, saying incomprehensible things and I think, the spirits we're fascinated about could be just as hard to understand and it makes sense why we wouldn't necessarily get clear communication.

Thank you for sharing your experience and keeping it so real.
