I noticed today (September 13) on my twitter feed a post from Zak Bagans host of Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures that he is coming out with a follow up Release (due to drop) February 10 2015 titled I am Haunted: Living Life through the dead . So I guess with some of the money I get from my Birthday and holidays I will get that.
I accidentally came upon his book Dark World in 2011 while looking for some ‘Halloween reading'(I always try to find something new and creepy to read in October), I didn’t even know he was writing a book, let alone heard one being released around that time.I came across Dark World on one of the tables in Barnes & Noble and was quite surprised to see it (like it was a sign) sadly I didn’t have enough of money on me to get it at the time so I had to wait. You can find the review for that on My Zak Bagans page. As I thumbed through it I h ad to laugh at some of the ‘highlights’. There’s some pictures, and some of the sections (titles) like the one titled “So you want to date me?” gave me a laugh. The books has some incites to what you didn’t get to see in some of the episodes to that point. There were a couple of parts I remember from the shows that actually had my hair stand on end (too bad it wasn’t at least a bit of the hair on my head I was never able to do that in the 90’s with the big hair) Now it’s so long well… I’m getting off topic here but It ends up being in a bun or pony tail) Dark World is an enjoyable read even if you are a skeptic. It’s written as far as I remember as if he’s right there having a conversation with you, which I think is the best way to write a book well for memoirs and ones of this sort anyway.
Zak also has an album called Necrofusion .
Genre: Paranormal (I’m guessing)
Publisher: Victory Belt Publishing
Release Date: February 10, 12015
From reading the description on amazon I take we get to go along for the ride with Zak while he investigates hauntings, maybe his own house that’s haunted (and in quite a bit of jealousy on my part.. with his very own dungeon!) Possibly mention more findings from the Dracula Castle special which aired October 31st, 2013.
Aside from assuming, which I do not like to do (because of the disappointment that follows) I can only imagine what this books is going to be about. I can’t wait. (mm Maybe I should re-read Dark World before this comes out, til then I hope you will as well.
Stay tuned and as soon as it comes out I will get it, (I’ve alrady pre-ordered & Paid for it) & get a copy of Dark World & for some interesting tunes his Necrofusion album!
Head Ghost Adventures P.I. (in this case.. Paranormal Investigator) Zak Bagans has travels the haunted realms of the world, Romania, The Winchester Mansion and the Edinburgh Vaults are just a few of the memorable places where they’ve gotten ‘Locked-down’. This all started with a documentary movie Zak, Nick & Aaron made back in 2004 when a brick or piece of lumber was thrown by an unforeseen force .
If Zak’s second book release is anything like the first it will equally give us a look inside his life (maybe hopefully about the ghosts at his house and especially his own Dungeon… I’m So jealous!!!) as well as Ghost Adventures We get an introduction to the GAC (Ghost Adventures Crew) I just hope there’s an explanation as to why Nick Groff has been missing in the current season)
A chapter on the Demon house mentions at the end that there will be a movie set to come out in 2015 (I’m guessing it’s a travel channel documentary)
One of the pictures in the book made me laugh but it’s not because of the pose or the item that made me laugh.. He has a bracelet with a cross wrapped around his fingers… and as I said it’s not the pose etc. but the fact I’ve seen those same bracelets in the dollar store!
Most of the pages seem to be only a few pages (maybe 15 or less minutes of reading time) so far the only one I’ve seen that seems to be a ‘full chapter’ of pages is the one on the demon house.
So Zak being a Vampire FANatic like myself (& a card carrying err Fang barring member) he has been inducted to the Sabertooth Clan and you can see a couple of pictures of Zak with his fangs on.
One of the questions the book asks is if more than one spirit can inhabit a body, Zak covers the health risks of the job and for a guy who hates clowns & Dolls and with some just the looks of some I can understand and if you saw the episode harold the Doll is no joke! Zak also covers the weather’s ‘Paranormal’ connection and his own to Kurt Corbain & Lane Stanley 2 members from the grunge rock era that were taken by their own demons. Speaking of which demons, Zak finally covers Ouija boards which people always recklessly use thinking it’s a ‘game’ Try looking up the rules and be sure to follow them.
Other topics is Location disappointments, debunking, Guest Investigators (which I love when someone comes in I recognize.. Vince Neil & What was that characters name from the Roadhouse on Supernatural?) and GHosts of Girlfriends past or well more so the fact that they get chased away by them and how some of his fans scare him.
