As far as i’m aware you’ll have to wait a few weeks for this to hit the shops although i gather it was pre-launched at FantasyCon over weekend. To the best of my knowledge this is the first time the contents have appeared online, so don’t forget not to give Vault a credit when you rip it off for your site/ blog/ messagebore, etc.

An Ouija board that predicted death … A body kept alive by force of will ….. A cursed family name …

Such tales as these are more usually associated with horror books and movies. However, these anecdotes are absolutely true! They are ,just a sample of the real-life experiences recounted by some of the world’s most famous frighteners, from such bestselling authors as Stephen King and James Herbert, to actor Vincent Price and director John Landis.

Collected together for the very first time, many or the most successful and well-known exponents, along with rising stars of the horror field, relate their fascinating encounters with the supernatural, revealing how such unique experiences have affected their lives and influenced their works.

Even for the experts, when it comes to Unexplained phenomena, fact can be much more frightening than fiction …
