He’s been a guest on the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Radio show many times to discuss his work and each time it is sheer delight.

Then curl up by the fireplace with any of Steiger’s books and prepare to be both entertained and chilled to the bone. I still shudder when I read his book on Poltergeists and it didn’t help when I interviewed him on EYS Radio and we went deeper into the story! Search for Steiger’s name in the EYS Radio archives to pull up and listen to all of the interviews with him here on the show.
On October 1, 2012, Steiger releases the second edition of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits and Haunted Places which shares true ghost stories and first-person encounters with the supernatural. Arranged topically, it covers every sort of ghost and haunting: poltergeists, shadow beings, and phantoms alongside haunted apartments, hotels, and trains.
From ghosts that still haunt Ohio’s State Reformatory to Abe Lincoln’s regular consultation with mediums, this 29 chapter compendium delves into the stories from both historical documents and personal accounts. The book unearths the manifestations at haunted places such as museums, churches, graveyards, restaurants, and sacred sites while also instructing how to perform a cleansing ritual to rid a home of unwanted spectral visitors. This second edition is updated to include new stories and compelling evidence of both the existence of ghosts and proof of haunted locations.
