Excerpts from this compelling book:
I have always known when someone was going to have a baby,  what  the  sex  of  the  child  would  be, and  when people  were  going  to  die -- what I didn't know was how I knew....

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 disapears from their shocked view....

" I was invited to investigate several homes in one of the most  beautiful parts  of Pasadena known as San Marino. I  found   many   sites   where  poltergeist   activity   was experienced   by   all   who  entered   the  site  yet  the owner  claimed: " Oh, we don't have any of  those  here." 

   I  simply  thought to myself  Wanna  Bet ?    

Read about ghostly banditos who  once  robbed  Pasadena   pioneers   and  experience  bone  chilling tale of  ghoulish  monks  who  wreak  havoc  at the old Mill, feel prankster spectors at the Rose Bowl and read personal accounts from current and past residents who encountered the unexplainable.  Find out why many people believe in the demons  who haunt  San  Marino and  dare  to  enter a haunted movie theater in South Pasadena where dozens   of   empoyees   and   patrons   alike  have   been  pinched  and   poked   by   this   spectral  hell  raiser. 

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 and is about to enter its 4th printing since its release. You'll love reading this book!

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 spectres 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

" Haunted Houses Within The Azusa Township taught me so much more than I ever thought I knew about my hometown. I loved the historical elements that Mr. Kouri adds to all of his books especially that of Henry Dalton.

No wonder so many people beleive 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"
