The Evidence for Phantom Hitch-Hikers

Goss, Michael

 Survey of the "phantom hitch-hiker" phenomenon in all its stages. Stories of "road ghosts" extend back to antiquity—it is an archetypal motif that is part of the tradition of folklore and literature. Goss, a free-lance writer specializing in the paranormal, describes all the variants of the ghostly hitch-hiker theme. In addition to classifying the phenomenon, emphasis is placed on finding normal explanations for it, whether they be instances of mistaken identity or outright lies. Goss makes a distinct contribution to the folklore of a specific type of apparition, the origin of which is multi-determined.
