In Supernatural Entertainments, Simone Natale vividly depicts spiritualism’s rise as a religious and cultural phenomenon and explores its strong connection to the growth of the media entertainment industry in the nineteenth century. He frames the spiritualist movement as part of a new commodity culture that changed how public entertainments were produced and consumed. Starting with the story of the Fox sisters, considered the first spiritualist mediums in history, Natale follows the trajectory of spiritualism in Great Britain and the United States from its foundation in 1848 to the beginning of the twentieth century. He demonstrates that spiritualist mediums and leaders adopted many of the promotional strategies and spectacular techniques that were being developed for the broader entertainment industry. Spiritualist mediums were indistinguishable from other professional performers, as they had managers and agents, advertised in the press, and used spectacularism to draw audiences. Addressing the overlap between spiritualism’s explosion and nineteenth-century show business, Natale provides an archaeology of how the supernatural became a powerful force in the media and popular culture of today.

First published in 1912, this vintage book deals with the subject of death, with a particular focus on spiritualism, a religious movement based on the belief that spirits of the deceased exist and are able to communicate with living people. Contents include: “The Scientific Aspect of Life and Death”, “The Signs of Death”, “Rigor Mortis”, “Trance, Catalepsy, Suspended Animation, etc.”, “Premature Burial”, “Cases”, “Burial, Cremation, Mummification, etc.”, “The Causes of Death”, “Sudden Death”, etc. Hereward Carrington (1880 – 1958) was a famous British-born American paranormal investigator and author. His focus was telepathy, and among his subjects were many of the most well-known cases of ostensibly psychic ability of the time. Carrington wrote over 100 books on related subjects during his life. Other notable works by thus author include: “The Physical Phenomena of Spiritualism” (1907), “The Coming Science” (1908), and “Eusapia Palladino and her Phenomena” (1909). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

In the silence of the night, in a remote room in a laboratory at the Institute of Physiology of the University of Naples, a small group of scientists meet to attend séances with Europe's most celebrated medium, Eusapia Palladino, a peasant woman whose mediumship has been dazzling Europe for decades. It is not the first time she has been subjected to tests, but it is the first time that she is being examined with the automated tools of orthodox scientific research, in an effort to produce an impartial and unbiased record of her activities. As fascinating as a theatrical piece, this true life narrative has a riveting plot: scientists attempting to penetrate the troubling mysteries of the occult and coming to grips with the phenomena of mediumship, its dynamics and possibilities. The eight séances at the Institute are literally¿sometimes humorously¿described by the group's director, Professor Filippo Bottazzi, one of the most authoritative researchers in Italy at the time. And it is Bottazzi himself who, on the basis of the evidence obtained, proposes an explanation of the observed events based on his knowledge of physiology. All of this occurred more than a century ago, but the story remains fascinating¿and relevant¿to our own time.

James ‘The Amazing’ Randi is a stage magician who says he has a million dollars for anyone who can convince him they have psychic powers. No one has even come close to winning, proof, say sceptical scientists, that there is no such thing as ‘the paranormal’. But are they right? In this illuminating and often provocative analysis, Robert McLuhan examines the influence of Randi and other debunking sceptics in shaping scientific opinion about such things as telepathy, psychics, ghosts and near-death experiences. He points out that scientific researchers who investigate these things at first hand overwhelmingly consider them to be genuinely anomalous. But this has shocking implications, for science, for society and for even perhaps for ourselves as individuals. Hence the sceptics’ insistence that they should rather be attributed to fraud, imagination and wishful thinking. However, this extraordinary and little understood aspect of consciousness has much to tell us about the human situation, McLuhan suggests. And at a time when militants are polarising the debate about religion, its mystical, spiritual element offers an optimistic and enlightened way forward. Randi’s Prize is aimed at anyone interested in spirituality or those curious to know the truth about paranormal claims. It’s an intelligent and readable analysis of scientific research into the paranormal which, uniquely, also closely examines the arguments of well-known sceptics.
