Demonic Dolls by John Harker

Can dolls really become haunted? Can demons take possession of people's playthings? According to a large number of paranormal investigators, exorcists, and demonologists, the answer is a resounding yes. Not only are such phenomena possible, they happen fairly often, with dolls being one of the most frequent targets of spirit attachment. Sometimes those spirits are benign, or at the most mischievous. But many are outright evil and dangerous.

This book examines some of the world's most famous haunted dolls. Some you may have heard about. Others will be new. All will make you reconsider the world you thought you knew. Here is some of what you'll find inside:

  • Robert, the haunted doll from Key West. A lot of the information out there about him is wrong. Find out the truth behind the legend. But don't think the truth is any less terrifying.
  • Annabelle, the demonic doll featured in the movies The Conjuring and Annabelle. Find out why the real Annabelle is much, much more frightening.
  • Peggy, the Internet sensation. Why you should think twice before looking at her picture.
  • Find out which doll started as a hoax, turned into a terrifying reality, and is now considered one of the most "active" haunted dolls in the world.
  • Discover which exotic locale and tourist attraction is a pediophobe's biggest nightmare. You won't believe such a place exists.
  • Clown dolls. Need more be said?

These stories and many more are what you'll find in this collection of true accounts from the frightening yet fascinating world of haunted and demonic dolls. Listening to this book will undoubtedly raise more questions than it answers, but one thing is assured: you'll never look at a doll the same again.

Evil Unleashed by John Harker

The occult is many things to many people. For some, it is a path to enlightenment. Others find it a source of personal transformation. And still others consider it a doorway to the devil. While distinctions can be drawn and argued all day, what can't be argued is this: the occult is dangerous. It opens channels that are best left closed. It attracts entities that don't play by the rules. And it demands more - always more - than what was bargained for.

These true-life accounts reveal the heartache and horror that can occur when people participate in the occult and, knowingly or not, release dark spirits into the human realm. Dabbler or devotee - it doesn't matter how deeply one is committed or involved. Once evil is unleashed, it treats everyone the same: hellishly.

Johnson's Island by Roger Pickenpaugh

In 1861, Lt. Col. William Hoffman was appointed to the post of commissary general of prisoners and urged to find a suitable site for the construction of what was expected to be the Union's sole military prison. After inspecting four islands in Lake Erie, Hoffman came upon one in Sandusky Bay known as Johnson's Island. With a large amount of fallen timber, 40 acres of cleared land, and its proximity to Sandusky, Ohio, Johnson's Island seemed the ideal location for the Union's purpose. By the following spring, Johnson's Island Prison was born.

Johnson's Island tells the story of the camp from its planning stages until the end of the war. Because the facility housed only officers, several literate diary keepers were on hand; author Roger Pickenpaugh draws on their accounts, along with prison records, to provide a fascinating depiction of day-to-day life. Hunger, boredom, harsh conditions and few luxuries were all the prisoners knew until the end of the war, when at last parts of Johnson's Island were auctioned off, the post was ordered abandoned, and the island was mustered out of service.

There has not been a book dedicated to Johnson's Island since 1965. Roger Pickenpaugh presents an eloquent and knowledgeable overview of a prison that played a tremendous role in the lives of countless soldiers. It is a book sure to interest Civil War buffs and scholars alike.
