Will Storr Vs. The Supernatural
  • Will Storr Vs. The Supernatural

  • When journalist and ghost sceptic Will Storr heads to Philadelphia to meet Lou Gentile, a demonologist, he expects a little fun with an amusing eccentric. What he gets are terrifying experiences of spectral lights and horrific demonic growling - and all of his safe, adult preconceptions about ghosts instantly vanish.

    In the cold light of day, Will decides on a quest for the truth about ghosts. He meets professional paranormal investigators and takes part in séances and a vigil in the most haunted house in Britain, tries out divining rods and ouija boards, and goes on set with TV's Most Haunted. But Will also seeks out the sceptics in clinical psychology and philosophy who ask if spirits are really just in our heads.

    His journey is full of bizarre, terrifying and hilarious experiences, each one a new insight into life, death and what might come after.

Will Storr has written for the Observer Magazine, The Times Magazine, Sunday Express, The Face, Loaded, NME, Q and the Mirror (Weekend Review section). His TV credits include RI:SE, Channel 4's 100 Worst Britons and Gonzo TV for Five. In the course of his travels, he's dressed up as a woman to impress the transexual leader of radical pro-suicide campaigners The Church of Euthansia, trained in jungle warfare with the British army in Belize, been arrested and then deported under armed guard from LA, was arrested again in Athens, when he sneaked Ground Force's Tommy Walsh into the site of the Olympic Stadium to help with a report on construction failures, driven at 140mph down A-roads with illegal street-car racers near Leeds, had his head sliced open by Backyard Wrestlers in Middlesbrough and performed a stand-up comedy routine in front of a load of students in Portsmouth. If all that wasn't dangerous enough, he's also spent the day with Ozzy Osbourne in his Beverly Hills mansion. This is his first book.
