In which the Author is reviewed rather well by the Society for Psychical Research…


The estimable Tom Ruffles of the Society for Psychical Research has just posted a fine review of Poltergeist over Scotland on the SPR’s website. You can find it here or in the reviews section of this very website. Here’s a taste:

“It seems odd that nobody had thought of the idea before, but surprisingly Geoff Holder is the first person to compile a history of Scottish poltergeists…. This is an excellent package relevant to anybody interested in poltergeists, not only those which occurred in Scotland.  Holder employs his trademark humour and takes an open-minded, sympathetic, but critical view of the phenomena he describes, making this a useful, and long overdue, collection.

My thanks to Tom and the SPR for permission to reproduce the review.
