Varla Ventura, Coast to Coast favorite, Weird News blogger on Huffington Post, and author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces Weiser Books’ new Collection of forgotten occult classics. Paranormal Parlor is an eerie assemblage of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s sixth sense for tales of the weird and unusual.

As late 1880's gentlewoman, author, traveler, and psychic investigator E. Katherine Bates writes, "psychometry is the science of learning to receive impressions and intuitions from the atmosphere surrounding any material object--a letter, a ring, a piece of pebble or shell, and so naturally this is especially the case in letters written and signed by us." One of Bates' many pieces written as she traveled the world investigating psychic phenomena, Psychometric Portraiture of the Victorian Era, addresses the psychometry of paintings and portraits.
