Excerpts from this compelling book:

Phantasmal Sightings at Pasadena College:

A   misty  ectoplasmic  figure   resembling  a  woman  is   seen  dressed   in    a   flowing  turquoise   gown  is  reported  floating  down  the  halls  of   the  second  story.   She's  always  seen  around  1:00pm. She smiles at  those   who   catch   her   glimpse  before  slowly dematerializing  in  front  of  them --  everyone who reports her image hear a woman's laughter as she disappears from their shocked view....

Journey  underground  to  a  secret  tunnel under our most famous haunted hotel (that until now has only been a myth) and re-live the spiritual accounts of a Top Secret Naval Base who's secrets of the past have never before been discussed or written about until now.  Learn why those who worked and died there feel the need to keep the "ghostly secrets silent" until Michael J. Kouri began his research.  

Haunted Houses of Pasadena has been hailed as a masterpiece by national historians and paranormal societies alike But copies of this 4th Edition are almost gone. Be sure to get a copy for yourself before they are gone forever.  You'll love reading this book!
                True Hauntings of the San Gabriel Valley
         "A Psychic Mediums Encounters With Real Ghosts Who Walk Among Us"

      Join Michael on a tour of the San Gabriel Valley's most haunted abodes in this Marvelous new book. You'll learn of the ghostly birthing houses in Glendora, Haunted hot spots in La Verne, San Dimas and ever city in between. Read the chapter about a seance Michael held with 7 other psychics and you'll feel as though you're actually there with them.   Michael  J.  Kouri  world renown psychic/medium and his  team  of  haunted  house investigators would love to have you join them by reading this book.  Visit the homestead of Henry  Dalton,  the  first man to buy property in California and receive a bill of sale by the Spanish crown and who is still seen roaming  throughout  the  valley in search of the squatters who store his  land  for  their  own,  stole  his  water  rights  and  left he and his family  in  financial ruin over 200 years ago.  You'll learn about some of  the  most  unusual  encounters   with   ghosts  that  neighbors   and visitors  haven't  dared  to  share  until now...See an effigy created upon  the  death  of  one  of  Henry  Daltons  children  (who drowned  in a tanning  pit full of acid),  with  her  own human hair, her eyelashes and even her fingernails then the doll was  placed  in  her crib  and included in family  gatherings  until the last of the Dalton clan was dead. Where is the doll now and why are so many afraid of it?  Michael has photographs of this haunted marvel believed to be haunted by the spirit of the child. 

       Famous author of ghost books, Richard Senate highly recommends Michael's books:  "True Hauntings of the San Gabriel Valley is another of Michael J. Kouri's masterpieces filled with historical facts as well as paranormal information. Michael always takes us into well hidden nooks and cranny's no one else  has  ever  read about until  they get one of his books.  Dare to read about  the weirdest  and  bizarre  tales of fate, look for buried treasure that was left behind by Spanish soldiers during the Mexican/American war, but  be  careful cause their ghosts come  back  each year in search of it.  Care  to  visit  one of  4 cemeteries in the San Gabriel Valley   where   the   spirits  of  the  past,  present  and  future  roam aimlessly in search of eternal peace?" 
     Feel the  "cold spots"  felt by both the living and the dead and  try  to  catch   a  glimpse  of   Rudolph  Valentino  who's seen riding  on  one  of  his  prize  winning Arabian horses throughout the hills of Glendora one of his favorite get-away escapes in the roaring 20's.   

 Haunted Houses of Monrovia
Chronicles the most haunted hotels, houses, schools and other average every day places that all have ghosts. Dare to walk along Myrtle avenue but keep a watchful eye open for  the Ghostly  marching  band who is said to appear to hundreds  during  the  Winter  holidays  then  drop  by  a haunted  pet  store  where  spirits of all shapes and sizes dwell.   Be   sure  to  visit  Mystic  Sisters  bookstore  and browse   the  back  room  where  a  ghostly  construction worker  pops  in  and  out  now  and  again  and visit the homes  of  the  city founders who are said to wander the halls  in  search  of  their  deceased  children.

The  hills  are  full of spirits including a wicked old witch who once lived on Hillcrest Drive and who many believe still haunts in search of her black cat "Salem."

Michael J. Kouri's books are highly recommended by prestigious Parapsychological experts:

Michael J. Kouri's   Haunted   House   books   provide   a gaggle   of   ghostly  encounters   for   the  armchair  ghost hunter. Kouri mixes his frightening tales with liberal doses of  local  history  and  lore  making  this  work an important resource   for   anyone   interested   in   the   supernatural specters outside of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley.  
Mr.  Kouri  has  compiled  a  list  of  haunted  houses, from Lucky   Baldwin's   Queen   Anne   cottage  to   Pasadena's Gamble  House,  where  the ghost of Aunt Julia welcomes guests to this very day and Glendora's first birthing house where  phantom  babies  cry.  He   includes   ghost   ridden cemeteries and even a ghost town where the past seems to come alive.

 Michael  J.  Kouri,  an  excellent  storyteller and historian, provides bone chilling tales not recommended for the faint of  heart  or  those  who   are   fearful   of  ghosts   and   the unknown - you    might   not   want   to   read it after dark!                                   - Richard Senate Author of:   Ghosts of the Haunted Coast  &  The Haunted Southland

   Many  books  have  been written about haunted houses and the paranormal, however,  Michael  J.  Kouri presents his material from the viewpoint of the spirit.    Do discarnates feel and think?   Do  they  continually  suffer ? Does death automatically promote them to paradise or, as some believe, to the depths of the Under-World?   It  is my hope that his books will reduce many of the old  crippling fears and provide a new rationale to replace  centuries  of superstition and limitation.   Dr. Hazel M. Denning Ph.D. Author of:  True Hauntings Spirits with a Purpose

Michael J. Kouri is not only a fine psychic/medium, but he has  a  wonderful  talent  for  writing.  Haunted  Houses of Pasadena   is   an  important  contribution  to  the  field  of parapsychology. 
 - Dr. Patricia L. Kubis Ph.D.  Author of:  Conversations Beyond the Light

- Thomas Mallory, Yorba Linda, CA

"Not only is Michael J. Kouri an awesome Story teller, but an incredible psychic/medium too. I hired him for a private reading and was blown away by his incredible accuracy of my life and that of my deceased husbands. Haunted Houses of Orange County is a wonderful collection of stories associated to real spirits and the buildings they choose to haunt. I loved reading about the house that should be haunted in Fullerton and the chapter titled Haunted Museums too. You will love this book if you're interested in parapsychology or ghostly curiosities...."

-Helene Bremmer, Fullerton, Ca.

 " I can hardly put Haunted Houses of Pasadena down. Michael J. Kouri is an excellent story teller, but what makes this book so compelling is that the ghost stories are true."

 - Christina Strauss, New York, N.Y.

"I have read everything Mr. Kouri has written and have taken his tour of Haunted Pasadena. What a wonderfully talented person we have living among us."  - Johnathan Taylor, Los Angeles, CA

"Haunted Houses of Pasadena is another Triumph by a fine historian and story teller - Michael J. Kouri - You won't be able to put it down."    - Liz  Edleton, Pasadena Star News

" Wow,  Haunted Houses of Pasadena is a real Winner when it comes  to  a  comprehensive book about real haunted places! I couldn't  believe  how much historical accuracy this author gave his readers along with very interesting anecdotal accounts of spirits who haunt the very places we Pasadenans call home. What an asset to our heritage. His Haunted Houses of Pasadena Walking Tours are also just an intriguing and interesting."  

 No wonder so many people believe that he still haunts his land to this day, I enjoyed reading about Rudolph Valentino who is said to haunt parts of Glendora as well as the ghost of Lucky Baldwin who haunts in search for the love of his life and the ghost of Lucky's poker pal turned outlaw Jessie James who appears in the old train depot at the Los Angeles Arboretum from time to time. This book is a must have for every ghost book collection."-Arthur Medford, Saint Augustine, FL
Michael J. Kouri has Done it Again! Haunted Houses of Orange County is the only book of its kind to reveal  the tales associated with the county's most haunted abodes including the  beautiful Waffle House museum in Santa Ana as seen on The Real Orange Television show, and heard about on Coast to Coast, KROQ, KOST and other Radio shows. Michael is the first person to investigate and chronicle his personal encounters with Real Ghosts who Haunt Orange County, California. His book is Filled with photographs of real ghosts and the houses they inhabit.
You'll read of spirits who wreak havoc from La Habra Heights to San Juan Capistrano and every city in between. Who is it that haunts  the Huntington Beach Pier? Learn about the hauntingly historical accounts of such famous land barons as Jose Yorba, James Irvine, Walter Knott (of Knott's Berry Farm) and Walt Disney founder of The Disneyland Resort along with other famous amusements. Is Disneyland actually haunted

The history included is astounding! You'll read true accounts of their employees who've seen, heard, smelled and felt the presence of their former employers in their decomposed state. - you only thought Disneyland's haunted mansion was the only haunted attraction-I've personally interviewed over 180 employees, designers and art directors and Disney family members who claim to have seen Walt's ghost in the park.  Is it a coincidence that the two most famous men in modern Orange County were named Walter and owned amusement parks here or is it a psychic coincidence?  
    Some people believe that Orange County has more spirits than any other city in the Country. Do discarnates feel and think or are they simply a glimpse of someone's imagination? These are just a few of the questions Michael J. Kouri answers in his New book Haunted Houses of Orange County. Take the family on the Haunted Houses of Orange County Walking Tour if you don't want to wait for the book's release...

What is it about Hollywood that fascinates so many people around the world? For those of us who live here, Hollywood is an ever spinning, always changing place of both fantasy, and reality mixed with doses of personal hardship and tragedy of unbelievable proportions. And that's where Psychic Medium Michael J. Kouri comes in. Michael is one of the only Psychic Mediums in the world today who writes his own books about his incredible encounters with ghosts. During the past 30+ years Michael has personally visited every movie and TV studio in Hollywoodland, and was given carte blanch to investigate  their eerie secrets, with his team of scientists, psychics and paranormal investigators, which he reveals in this fascinating new book.

You'll hear from composers, directors, family members, employees of his theme parks, studios, inhabitants of his former homes, his apartments and more.
