      Watch out...one read of this and you will be sleeping with the lights on!

      It Happened to Me! is a series of successful magbooks produced by Fortean Times magazine and published by Dennis Publishing. Being the second and newest book in the series, this 160 page masterpiece collates readers accounts of the supernatural from Fortean Times' infamous 'It Happened to Me!' segment of the magazine and certainly does not disappoint.

      I bought my copy from Amazon a few months back for £7.19. I believe this to be excellent value for money as this is a book that I never tire of reading and I find it to be very unique in its content. It never grows old and the ordinary readers' accounts of the paranormal sound just as fresh today as when I first read them.

      Encapsulating 36 years' worth of real-life tales of the unexplained straight from the pages of the magazine, this book is divided into chapters comprising separate fields of paranormal activity. These include:

      *Mysterious Helpers*
      *Creature Features*
      *Ghostly Gifts*
      *The Great Outdoors*
      *Haunting Tales*
      *Sounds and Smells*
      *Pixilation*
      *Phantom Animals*
      *Wild Talents*
      *Weird Vehicles*
      *Vanishing Acts*
      *Twilight Zone*

      Therefore, this book covers a wide array of supernatural happenings and to be honest some of the stories contained within this magbook are downright ridiculous. One memorable one that pops into my mind is the account of the family haunted by a ghost who liked to wee in their pots!!! If that doesn't scare you, I don't know what will!

      The book is by no means a scholarly analysis of paranormal happenings. It is simply just an insight into some strange phenomena that every day individuals have experienced past and present and that ultimately cannot be explained.

      In my estimation, this particular work stands out from the crowd in this genre due to the fact that the accounts are supposedly true and I feel that this makes the book scarier than your average book of ghost stories.

      The spookiness of the stories are intensified by the rather disturbing accompanying photographs and illustrations.

      Personally, this book really gets me thinking as to whether the reader's account could possibly be true and what could it be? I really like this element of mystery created by the book. It makes for a very engaging and thought provoking read.

      If you are a fan of the Fortean Times magazine or even just curious about the paranormal, then you should definitely give this little book a read.

      Be warned though, some of the tales are very spooky so please don't have nightmares!

      This book has an RRP of £7.99. However, as I mentioned you can save around 80p by ordering from Amazon.
