    I later inherited a near complete collection from a (then) GF's brother, I have no idea what happened to those, although I seem to have a dim memory of selling them at a car boot sale.

    I still have a strong interest in the subject, although technology has got to a point now where any photographic/video proof cannot be trusted.

    There must be about 30 billion cameras (mobiles ) across the globe and all 50 years of rumours yet not ONE single photograph of one

    There must be thousands of books on the supernatural, my question is why is this particular book extraordinary?

    Your final comment here Mulletino is the main reason i lost interest, so many smart *** kids in bedrooms making fake videos which served only to debunk the subject

    Not one VERIFIED my a respectable society though .

    There was a $1 million dollar reward /prize fund available for 25 YEARS !!

    All you had to do was prove by photo/ video or replicate something some kind of paranormal activity in lab conditions.

    Not one person was able to prove anything ... ghosts / aliens / UFOs / levitation / telekinesis/ mind readers etc etc

    Uri Geller was famously found to be cheating LIVE on TV by James Randi ..

    Google James Randi

    I recall one Russian woman who claimed she could move ‘metal’ objects by mindpower .. .. but the scientists were puzzled why she could only move METAL objects..

    She sat at a desk under lab conditions and was able to move the metal drawing pins on the table just by concentrating ( yawn) ....
    Of course she was elated until the body scan which revealed that she had tiny magnets on her thighs - UNDER her skin !!!!!
