100 Books on the Paranormal to Find on a Bookshelf

Watermarked PDF

This is a list of 100 books on the paranormal that players might find on a bookshelf. The books are mostly suitable for a modern setting, as the vast majority were first published in the late 20th century, although some are older.

These books range on subjects such as past lives, ghosts and hauntings, weird happenings and the powers of the mind. All the books listed are genuine books, some of them by well known names in the field. Whether or not the books have any in-game value other than decorative is up to the GameMaster.

The entries have the book's name, author, if known, and in every case other details, in particular the area that the book covers. They can be used to pad out a bookshelf with other genuine material, although it is unlikely that any one person would have books on the whole range of subject material.

Some examples are:

35. Magical Passes: The Practical Wisdom of the Shamans of Ancient Mexico by Carlos Castaneda (Illustrated guide on how to travel to other realms and create physical entities from thought alone)
36. Magic and Mystery in Tibet by Alexandra David-Neel (The author's accounts of supernatural events, including levitation and telepathy, witnessed in Tibet)
37. Mass Dreams of the Future by Chet B. Snow, Ph.D. (Documents hypnotic sessions where the subjects remembered lives lived in the future)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
