Here he reflects on his experiences over many decades as a psychical research case investigator — describing some of the early influences on his career when he started working with the American Society for Psychical Research. He notes the burgeoning new generation of “ghost hunters” and compares their activities with those of scientific investigators. He describes his work with mediums and psychics, and his own openness to intuitive impressions while on an investigation.
