ARE GHOSTS REAL?


A tad more racier in the next decade, BLUEBOOK magazine in the 1950's was more of a general men's interest publication, covering stories like poker and western movies, including mystery and other fiction.

This article from the November 1953 issue (Vol. 98, No. 1) discusses the possibility of ghosts being real and there are compelling and (seemingly) credible examples given. Unfortunately over the years, the hoaxes about ghosts outnumber potentially genuine phenomena making it more difficult to convince readers of their existence. Nevertheless, the article is entertaining and engaging on its own. On a side note, this issue also contains a story by famed detective fiction author, John D. MacDonald.
