Writer Nate Riddle’s new book, Lone Star Spooks: Searching for Ghosts in Texas, has a significant chapter on skepticism in ghost investigations, and he quotes an interview I did with him at length. I can’t vouch for the skeptical content of the rest of the book, but overall it looks pretty good. Riddle deserves a lot of credit for getting a skeptical point of view in the book; 99% of authors of ghost books completely ignore the skeptics’ information and arguments.

More information on the book is available at his Web site.

  1. Thanks Ben! I really appreciate you providing me the chance to interview you for Lone Star Spooks, and I think it’s a much stronger book with a skeptical perspective included.

    I’m starting to promote it a bit more now that it’s out there, and when people hear there is an entire chapter dedicated to providing a skeptical point of view many people are surprised. Whether you are believer or skeptic, my hope is that after finishing up the book believers will be more critical in their thinking, less naive about believing just anything they see on TV or online, and that skeptics will find value in the cultural, psychological and scientific aspects of the subject as a whole to enjoy.

    Thanks again for the kind words, I really enjoyed Tracking the Chupacabra and continue to keep an eye out for critters with a severe case of mange in the Dallas area as a result!

    -Nate
