Dead Men's Embers by Gerald O'Hara
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An amazing and extaordinary account of how an ordinary group of people could experience a huge range of psychic phenomena. With the 'supernatural' being an every day occurence. At the end of the 19th century, the group formed a Society to develop and safely practise the paranormal. Villified by the public and critics, the Spiritualists fought back against those who said they were involved in witchcraft, demons and possession in order to assert a "rugged individualism" in matters of the spirit. For the first time the role of class within the psychic community is examined. The impact of the Fist World War and social conditions is looked at in particular reference to people in the city of York and using a wealth of new material and photographs, never before published, from local and national archives the author is able to explore in depth the lives of the Society and the experience of attending a Physical Seance over an extended period of more than 30 years at the beginning of the 20th century.
