JOINING THE SA FORUMS WILL REMOVE THIS BIG AD, THE ANNOYING UNDERLINED ADS, AND STUPID INTERSTITIAL ADS!!!

You can: log in, read the tech support FAQ, or request your lost password. This dumb message (and those ads) will appear on every screen until you register! Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95! We charge money because it costs us money per month for bills, and since we don't believe in showing ads to our users, we try to make the money back through forum registrations.

If you happen to know any particularly good ones I'm all ears, all I seem to be able to find on this stuff is from the people that believe it

Look for stuff on the life of Houdini, since he spent a good portion of his life debunking it.

The books "Talking to the Dead" by Barbara Weisberg, and "Radical Spirits" by Ann Braude are okay, IIRC, though the last one is about the connection between the Spiritualists and early American feminism. The first female presidential candidate in the US, Victoria Woodhull, made quite a lot of money with her sister scamming rich dudes with seances.
