What are some well-written, readily-available books about, for want of a better term, ‘the unexplained:’ apparently psychic phenomena, apparitions, telepathy, and the like? I have a pen-pal who is at college studying electrical engineering in north-eastern Africa. He has a great curiosity about philosophy, literature, and the arts, but books of all kinds are hard to come by where he is, so I have been sending him some of my old volumes.
He’s expressed a particular interest in these ‘unexplained’ phenomena, but I am a skeptic, and haven’t anything that fits the bill. What are some good general works on these subjects? Ideally, I suppose, I’d prefer books that would allow him to draw his own conclusions, and are neither blindly credulous nor dogmatically skeptical.
