Paranormal Glasgow digs into the strange and peculiar stories of Scotland's greatest city. Here are tales of contemporary ghosts and historical haunting, UFO and big-cat sightings, time slips, spontaneous human combustion, bizarre beliefs, and urban legends. There is a thorough and shocking exposé of the city's gory history of witchcraft trials, the story of the "Gorbals vampire" of 1954, which saw hundreds of schoolchildren hunting for "a monster with iron teeth," and the case of John Scott, the Glasgow Fasting Man who allegedly survived without food or water for 106 days, and was proved to have done so by the Vatican. With more than 50 photographs, this collection by writer and paranormal specialist Geoff Holder will delight, unnerve, and surprise visitors and residents alike.
