Shadow World
True Encounters with Beings from the Darkside

by Brad Steiger

Trade Paperback, 270 Pages

$17.95, ISBN: 1933665270

Genre(s): Paranormal

Having conducted research through five decades and across four continents, investigator Brad Steiger concludes that a richly populated Shadow World exists all around us. When it impinges on our ordinary plane of shared reality, this dark dimension is sometimes frightening, occasionally menacing, but always worthy of cautious exploration. 

Spirits of the dead are but one of the many types of beings that inhabit in the Shadow World. Others appear to be multidimensional beings, some of whom may be benign, while others seem to be cosmic tricksters or troublemakers bent on mischief. And unfortunately some of the beings that seem to have our best interests at heart may in fact have entered our world with the intention of possessing our bodies or capturing our souls.

About the Author:

Brad Steiger is the author of more than 160 books with over fifteen million copies in print. He is a frequent guest on a variety of television and radio programs. He is also the author of Strange Guests and Worlds Before Our Own.

Who inhabits the Shadow World? 
We're not just talking about spirits of the dead. 
And "friendly" is not a proper description of their character.

What they're saying:

"Shadow World is a chilling sojourn through the realm of the spirit world, and once again challenges our perception of where and why spirit beings originate. No, this is no mere gallery of ghosts and ghouls; it provides a panoramic painting of the motives and classifications of ethereal beings…Once again, my hat goes off to Brad for expanding our knowledge…” — “Wolfman” Dan Allen, a writer and illustrator, Studio Ronin

"Brad Steiger offers his readers various thoughtful and carefully researched possible interpretations for these very puzzling manifestations…that may unexpectedly intrude into our own lives...You’ll have a hell of a time prying your fingers loose from this riveting book of true spine-chilling supernatural accounts…” — Brent Raynes, Alternate Perceptions

"It became clear to me on reading his book that the other-worldly entities – and their actions and activities – that he discusses are eerily similar in many ways to those of our so-called ‘aliens’…Steiger highlights case after case that will not sit well with those who see the afterlife as being one based merely around the simplistic ‘love and light’ approach.” — Nick Redfern, UFO Mystic

"Even if you're a skeptic when it comes to 'paranormal subjects,' this book could be the first to change your mind. Once again, Brad Steiger takes us into the bizarre, multidimensional worlds that stretch the boundaries of reality, but his credibility and writing style makes it all believable without second thoughts. Riveting, thoroughly researched, this book has a huge 'oh wow' factor." — Allan Handelman, nationally syndicated talk show host, Allan Handelman Show 

“The Master of the Paranormal pierces the veil of the afterlife and invites us into The Shadow World where conventional answers don't seem to fit. If you believe in the afterlife you'll be enlightened. If you don't believe, you may find yourself with serious questions that defy explanation. This is a no nonsense guide to the other side.” — Erskine, the host of the radio talk program Erskine Overnight

“Once again, veteran explorer Brad Steiger takes his readers on an otherworldly foray into the supernatural.” — Kevin Barry, producer, The Unexplained, A&E

“Another Steiger gem! If you ever read a single book on the supernatural, make it this one.” — Jeff Rense, radio talk show host
