Arthur C. Clarke, the best-selling science fiction author in the world, now addresses a subject that has fascinated him for half a century - the supernatural. Here are eyewitness accounts of some of the strangest phenomena ever told. Tales of ghosts and poltergeists, of dowsers who can find oilwells with a pendulum or a twig, men who can walk on fire, women who bleed with the wounds of Christ, mediums who claim to conjure up the spirits of the dead, visions of the future tragically fulfilled, and children who say they have lived before.

Scientists, doctors and psychiatrists who have investigated some of these stories provide their insights. And Clarke's opinions, which are thoughtful yet provocative, and his wise and witty reactions to the validity of many of the claims for the paranormal are certain to prove both enlightening and controversial. "At a generous assessment," he writes, "approximately half of this book is nonsense. Unfortunately, I don't know which half..." This book provides the evidence. Now you can judge.
