Twenty Years' Experience as a Ghost Hunter


Read by Mark F. Smith

(4.5 stars; 48 reviews)

After having a difficult time establishing a career as a novelist, O’Donnell discovered to his happy surprise that the reading public was very interested in his hobby of chasing ghosts, which he called “Superphysical Research.” After this, he made a habit of buttonholing friends and strangers to find out what experiences they had had with spirits and phantasms. He happily volunteered to camp out overnight in houses known to be haunted, and he made a concerted effort to discover any unhappy events that had, perhaps, led a ghost to inhabit.

This, then, is a collection of his juiciest remembrances of running down ghosts in Europe and America, both in peace and in the horrors of World War. ( Mark Smith) (8 hr 20 min)

(5 stars)

A great read, I enjoy this book and have listened to it several times. Mark smith is simply great orator and there the book is made better for it.

Pretty fun ghost stories, told well.

(4 stars)

This isn't a scientific exploration of supernatural phenomena. It's an Irish storyteller collecting tales to frighten and delight readers. And it works.

I was won over.....
