Step Into The Dark Side of the Occult with Michelle Belanger
While many people would likely write occult author Michelle Belanger off for being “too weird,” whether it was due to her penchant for Goth clothing or her label of “psychic vampire,” but they are doing themselves a disservice because she is one of the best writers in the occult/paranormal genre.
Those with a sharp eye will remember her guest starring on quite a few episodes of the controversial ghost-hunting show Paranormal State, which was cancelled by A&E after only a few seasons. However, unlike many television psychics, Belanger not only “walks the walk” but she “talks the talk” too!
Take her book the Dictionary of Demons: Names of the Damned. Belanger’s love for history and research allows readers to flip through the most complete list of “demonic names” that were taken from both notorious and obscure sources in the Western magical tradition. There are also some short articles on demonology as well, which helps strip away some of the “forbidden” aspect to this particular genre of the occult.
Belanger also seeks to help believers in the paranormal with her Ghost Hunter’s Survival Guide. Whether you believe in things that go bump in the night, this book is chock-full of essential tips and tricks. These include: how to ward and shield yourself from nasty energies, protecting dreams, and even how all of the aforementioned methods work on a psychological level too, which should satisfy all of the skeptics out there.
Meanwhile, Haunting Experiences: Encounters with the Otherworldly allows Belanger to recount her own dealings with beings that reside beyond the grave. From a haunted violin to hellhounds, her insightful commentary will delight readers and send a chill down your spine.
Even for skeptics, Belanger’s masterful research and engaging writing style makes her one of the best authors in the occult genre and places her miles above the fluff-ridden books that Llewellyn publishes year after year!
