Why Do Ghosts Wear Clothes?

Isn't this an age-old question? The leader of my writer's critique group, M.E. Brines, is perhaps the most prolific and expert writer I have ever known. I am enchanted by his wide variety of works. Obviously, this one really caught my attention.

Why Do Ghosts Wear Clothes?  After explaining the difference between magical thinking and the scientific method, the author employs the scientific method to shed light on the paranormal. Beginning with a concise history of spiritualism and séances, the author employs logic and careful experimental evidence to answer questions like: What is spiritualism? What are ghosts? And, of course, why do ghosts wear clothes? The bulk of this work is a thorough re-examination of the three-year study of the medium Leonora Piper by the Society for Psychical Research, of which the author is a member. He concisely summarizes the investigators’ 255-page report and uses the evidence to demonstrate the true nature of the Spirit Realm and its inhabitants. Why do Ghosts Wear Clothes is a must read for paranormal investigators or anyone interested in the occult. And while you may not agree with his conclusions, you can’t fault the method he uses to arrive there.
