Are we talking in general or related to MB? Razz Either way, I'd have to go raking for some, but I guarantee I've got some crackers!

I will recommend H. P. Lovecraft. I can't get enough of the guy's work. Robert E. Howard too; he's the guy who introduced us to the mighty Conan the Cimmerian! I'm a big fan of older stuff, as well as horror. Lovecraft in particular, for some reason. Got a few on Scottish Folklore I could recommend. Very Happy

I like Dr Karl Shuker's Atlas of the Unexplained. it's been a treasured book of mines since I got it. There is another one I tend to refer to, but I'f have to rake it out. It has photos on the front, one of a floating stool, but I can't rememebr any more about it. But will have a look for it Smile

Will Storr Vs The Supernatural sounds interesting, I'll have a look into getting a copy. Urisk, Conan and Lovecraft, great Very Happy I'm a big Sci-fi and Fantasy fan.

Off the top of my head I liked:
The Black Alchemist - Andrew Collins
Black Arts - Richard Cavendish
Demonic Connection - Charlse Walker
Haunted Pub Guide - Guy Lyon Playfair (hehe...hick)

Janet and Colin Bord are pretty good for gazetteer type books and Paul Devereux's books are good.

I'll dig through my library for a few choice tomes Cool

I found it a good read and it has spurred me to plan a trip to Edinburgh in february to maybe go on the tour a few times.. i would like to experience the tour for myself before i decide wether i believe it or not, i do hope something happens to me though!
