When “Beyond The Edge Of Reality” realises they had a Gem of a man and knew they had a story that was the best reading ever known. They knew also it would just be a matter of time before they had to get their blog done of what I would like to call a super hero of the Paranormal.

The book a lot of folks have came to know the most perhaps,depending on whom you ask as a lot of his books have been done well and have had greater then expected reviews. “True Haunting”This is the story of a true haunting. It was the first ever filmed and televised by NBC in 1971. A young couple purchases a building that was built and occupied by a single family that refused to relinquish their hold, even after death. Investigated and verified by experts, this residence brought chaos to the lives of those who chose to reside there. Unlike a horror novel, this chronicles what a real ghostly experience would resemble. Long before the laws of disclosure, a young couple winds up in the midst of strange occurrences prior to the term ‘paranormal’ becoming a common description. Searching for help at time when supernatural events were a taboo subject and being ignored by the Church, sent them into a desperate search for any assistance. Only a little known organization came to their aid. Author Tom Valentine, brought in a nationally known psychic, Joseph DeLouise, who then asked assistance of an exorcist from England, Reverend William Derl-Davis. Together, they gave their best effort at exorcising the multiple spirits inhabiting the building and disrupting the lives of the living. Events were filmed by NBC, who sent their most prominent Chicago journalist, Carole Simpson, to cover the event. Follow a young couple with a newborn as they attempt to cope with inexplicable events, experience denial, plead for help from their Church, and step into the world of the paranormal. Understand why ghosts cannot be exorcised and a true example of their strong sense of domain, even after death. Learn what experts and gifted people did in a failed attempt to assist this desperate couple. There is no happy ending, as the young couple suffers emotionally, are physically threatened, have their pets terrorized, and eventually suffer financially by actually “giving” their building away. What was intended as a financial answer to their prayers became, instead, a curse to be abolished. Learn many of the various manifestations that can be common in haunting. Ghosts can be seen and heard. They can propel objects and interrupt utilities. They can affect your moods and feed off of your emotions. They can appear as solid as you and me. They can react and become hostile if threatened or violated. Most important, as this young couple learned, they can harm you and cannot be removed. This is a firsthand accounting of what a true haunting is like. There are certain subtle occurrences you may find the most frightening, because you just might relate and recognize them. If so, guess what? You may have a ghost!
Another fine read by Edwin F Becker.
Banished: A Demon, An Exorcist And A Battle Of Faith by Edwin F Becker (Jan 27, 2011)A DEMONIC PAGE TURNER!
Father Thomas Garrity is a Catholic priest who unexpectedly comes face to face with a horrific demon. Through fate or demonic manipulation, he winds up substituting for a prison chaplain who mysteriously committed suicide and was counseling a serial killer condemned on death row. Garrity meets with the convict, who at first is mute, and then becomes all too talkative, claiming to be a demon. A naïve Father Garrity assumes he is dealing with a schizophrenic. Truly possessed by the demon Furfur, the inmate begins his attack on Father Garrity. As all Catholic priests, Garrity is uneducated and unskilled at confronting the supernatural, much less a demon. This demon is intent on destroying Garity’s faith in God through any means possible. The one problem is that this “inmate” will be executed in a week, so time is of the essence. At first Garrity thinks that he must only survive until the execution, but then finds he will become hunted afterward by a demon that will transfer to a whole new body. Furfur, a documented fallen angel taken from demonology, initially attempts to overwhelm Garrity with his knowledge and history. Failing, he escalates his efforts to violence, and eventually murders. Father Garrity, as all common parish priests, is inexperienced, but is desperate to defeat this demon, even though his path is crammed with obstacles. He is surrounded by non-believers and a Catholic organization that has created an impossible bureaucracy which frowns on the very mention of exorcism. The demon Furfur intends to deliver the soul of this convict to hell and then transfer himself to another person and continue to torment the priest. Father Garrity finds that Furfur, in documented demonology, ranks high in the hierarchy of hell and has 150,000 demons at his command. Although in prison, Furfur can torture the priest through hurting those close to him simply by using his legions. Father Garrity reaches out to the Vatican and eventually enlists the help of the official head Exorcist. He is also aided by an unofficial American exorcist. Their realization that the limited time until the execution is nowhere near adequate for an exorcism, makes for an unsolvable dilemma.
Famished by Edwin F. Becker (Aug 30, 2012) I (Evan Jensen)did and have had the pure pleasure of reading this book as well, I do feel blessed to of been able to enjoy his books. This book is a hands up as far as content and reading, an enjoy to have read. For those zombie lovers you may just have to read this book.http://www.amazon.com/Famished-Edwin-F-Becker/dp/1477253696/ref=la_B003VPGO9W_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1429131242&sr=1-4
13 Chilling Tales was released, September 9th of 2011 http://www.amazon.com/13-Chilling-Tales-Edwin-Becker/dp/146342745X/ref=la_B003VPGO9W_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1429131669&sr=1-5
The writer states”13 Chilling Tales is a book of original short stories. Most all of these tales were based on concepts that might possibly be expanded to novels. Since the paranormal has many layers of interest, this book samples a variety. We have a vampire, ghosts, a werewolf, the walking dead, a gypsy, a Ouija board, time travel, Bigfoot, and even Death himself. The endings will sneak up on you and are meant to shock or surprise. Many of the characters involved might resemble people you know. It is the author’s intent to take you on a brief journey to visit things that we may never understand. In some cases these places may seem familiar and the settings realistic which, makes it all the more frightening. Many of these stories begin in the world of collectables, where naïve individuals purchase items from people they don’t really know. They could be people who may have hidden motivations lying below the surface. Then again, it might be the item itself. Who was the former owner? Were th ey good, or evil, and still clinging to this item from the beyond? All too often a person buys an antique or collectable, and gets much more than they expected but when their realization takes place…..it is far too late! As a bonus there is a 14th story. The author dispels a true urban legend and ghost story. Incredibly it is an urban legend that was created unintentionally by author himself. An urban legend which he learned about 30 years later! You will read 13 Chilling tales and experience a spectrum of entertainment. Afterward, you may never view a flea market, antique fair, garage sale or second store the same ever again. Be careful what you bring home!

I just finished reading this book by the way, for those vampire lovers this is also and exellent read and would say if you have not “READ THIS BOOK YOUR MISSING OUT!

In the end, he cannot deny the proof that keeps building in front of his eyes–proof that leaves him facing the battle of his life.
Deathwalker II: A Vampire’s Domain Paperback – February 28, 2012
One of Edwins reviews “This was AMAZING!!! If you read the first book you would be crazy not to read this one. It picks up where the first book left off and really kicks it into high gear. The characters take twists and turns you’ll never see coming and the new additions are just as astounding. I have never read one book by Mr. Becker that didn’t leave me thinking or wanting more. His work is so refreshing in a sea of boring literature. I could really see these books as movies in the theater and I would happily pay to see them. Hint, hint you movie producers out there!
Do not pass this one up but make sure you read the first Deathwalker first. I cannot wait for the third installment. I’ll be on the edge of my seat until then.
Another book published
The Eleventh Commandment by Edwin F. Becker (Jul 8, 2010)http://www.amazon.com/dp/145023741X/ref=rdr_ext_tmb#reader_145023741X this book later became Deathlist, so as this is revised for the folks the actual book to read is indeed Death list.
We are also looking forward to “True Haunting soon to be released, look for it. The sequel to True Haunting if the first book was so great, then expect nothing less from the second book.
