Opening Sentence:Although many years have passed, I still remember the dream in every electrically vivid detail: the fading light, the smell of the rain, the fear, the shock of pain.
Synopsis:OPENED: An Investigator’s Astonishing File
Journalist and author John Pinkney has devoted most of his career to investigating the paranormal in Australia at first hand. This unique book – in which he presents his most fascinating cases – is the culmination of a lifetime’s study of UFOs, hauntings, coincidences, futuredreams, near-death experiences, and more. The cases include:
*UFOs over Australia’s Bass Strait…as three planes, their pilots and passengers vanished without a trace.
*Bert Newton’s uncanny brush with Melbourne’s Princess Theatre ghost.
*The Channel 10 racecaller who dreamed the winners of the Caulfield Cup, and told viewers before the race.
‘A Paranormal File’ also contains authentic photographs of UFOs and the traces and carvings they allegedly left behind – along with stark snapshots of ghostly entities. Written in an open-minded style, these reports make riveting reading.
Comments:As with most general books on the paranormal, this book does not go into enough detail. However, the stories are more in-depth than others I have read. I am impressed by the sheer number of stories the author was able to gather and it was refreshing to read such a high percentage of Australian content – something that is hard to come by in a field that concentrates on the UK and US.
A Paranormal File covers a wide range of topics and includes genuine photographs of spirits and UFO’s. Unusually, Pinkney also includes a number of events experienced by Australian public figures. Overall, this book is worth reading if you are interested in paranormal phenomena in general, and Australian phenomena in particular.
