If someone told you they'd had an encounter with the supernatural, would you believe them?
Author David Paul Nixon has spent six years travelling Great Britain and beyond, listening to real people's ghost stories: tales of frightening and unsettling encounters with vengeful spirits, unexplained apparitions, and unclassifiable phenomena. They're deeply sinister, often-traumatic tales that have had a deep, often devastating impact upon people's lives.
This collection contains 11 of those stories: 11 tales that have stood up to scrutiny and could not simply be disproved. With each tale the listener must ask, "are these stories borne of lies or madness, or could they be the real thing?" Are they genuine encounters with phenomena beyond our understanding?
Sound quality is dire but if you can get over that then you will enjoy each one of these spooky tales. Looking forward to the second book
What disappointed you about Eleven New Ghost Stories?
I searched for 'true ghost stories' and bought this because I thought it was going to be new paranormal accounts from real people, i.e. non fiction. It seems to be journeyman fiction positioned as 'true' stories. If these are supposedly real accounts from real people, then they should be more widely known.
Would you ever listen to anything by David Paul Nixon again?
No, I feel that money has been obtained under false pretences.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Poor audio quality, very amateurish.
Any additional comments?
This feels like fiction has been 'passed off' as non-fiction, which is unforgivable.
