I heard a two hour radio interview with the Rebecca F. Pittman, author of The History and Haunting of The Stanley Hotel.

Rebecca has only written two ghost books but they have really good reviews because of the history she writes about on the locations. She said she believes the history is the bones of the story and the current paranormal activity is the meat of the story. In the interview, she also said that she loves going through the musty old newspapers and articles to research the history and original people of each haunted location.

What I liked about the radio interview is the fact that callers could call in and some had worked at the Stanley hotel and they related stories that verified what was in the book. The impression I got from listening to callers and Rebecca speak was that she really did do the research and people were agreeing with her.

The author also lives just 35 minutes from the hotel which, to me, says she really did have ample opportunity to do the historical research.  She also stayed in the Manor House alone during the off season and has worked on repainting sections of the interior of the hotel.

During the interview she related stories of the original owners of the hotel and stories of individual ghosts that are said to be haunting the place.  A couple callers also had stories that echoed what is in this book.

I have ordered this book and I promise to update this page after I finish it, but from the reviews on Amazon and from the interview i heard, I really think I we won’t be disappointed!

The book has a Facebook page  here.
