GHOSTS

Unlike Kettelkamp (1969) and others, Simon makes no attempt at either skeptical or stranger-than-truth explanations. Suggesting only that ""some ghost stories have been looked into and sound as if there is something to them,"" he's content to resurrect some typical reports of hauntings--in English castles, on modern Long Island, at a sealed tomb in Barbados, on an oil tanker at sea, even in the White House where Lincoln appeared to Eleanor Roosevelt and her guest Queen Wilhelmina, among others. (""President Roosevelt said he was not surprised."") Not only has the subject been done to death, but most of these are re-appearances.
