Seeing ghosts, believing in the paranormal and accepting what psychics say as gospel has become de rigueur in the last couple years. You see celebrities on television explaining breathlessly how they've encountered supernatural things, and you watch psychics regularly tell people their future and what deceased relatives are feeling.

Well, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has been a believer in things that go bump in the night for a very long time, and here he writes about it in his inimitable style. He was in West Hollywood to record Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses - Slipknot's third album - at a secluded mansion in the Hollywood Hills. After encountering some very strange things, he decided to write about them.

He tells about seeing the Tuxedo Man while taking a shower; how things kept flying off the shelves in his room; and how his bandmate saw a figure lying and moving next to him while he was sleeping. They are scary memories, and Taylor describes them well.

Taylor writes simply and effectively, and you believe what he's revealing. At one point he writes, "Maybe ghosts do not exist. Maybe there is no way in science and life that they can exist." You understand that Corey Taylor is no fool, because even he questions what he's seeing.

Did he see ghosts and papers flying off shelves? Who knows. But after reading his book, you want to believe him.
