The Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff

I wanted to post about this book even though I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. I just know that I’m not going to be able to get to it for a while and I wanted to let people know about it in the meantime because it sounds really clever to me.

It’s a work of fiction that uses the former Duke Parapsychology Lab as a jumping off point. Interesting, right? Here is what Publisher’s Weekly said:

“Sokoloff keeps her story enticingly ambiguous, never clarifying until the climax whether the unfolding weirdness might be the result of the investigators’ psychic sensitivities or the mischievous handiwork of a human villain.”

The book is centered around a fictional poltergeist case from 1965. If you go to her website here you can read an excerpt.

    A librarian at Duke told my friend about this book and he got it and then handed it to me. He first mixed this book up with yours. But anyway I have it here and will read it! Do you two know each other? It is interesting you two wrote on the same theme at about the same time. Synchronicity?

    Hi! She and I don’t know each other, but I have her book too and plan to read it. If you read it first let me know how it is. And yeah, that was amazing that we were working on our books at the same time but in different directions.
