When you grow up in a haunted house, as I did, it leaves an impression. Especially on house guests. I started reading Holzer when I was a small child to help me make sense of what we lived with in that house. Whether it was a ghost, "leave-behind," energy imprint, or a grand mass delusion, he helped me come to terms with the fact that not everything can be explained, nor does the unexplained need to be feared.
Holzer had an usual gift for combining the "unheimlich" with the "gemütlich." Perhaps only a Viennese gentleman could pull that off! He always gave the impression that he was sincere and honest. He was not a trickster but a seeker. With a gift for friendship and writing, he told it as he saw it. Even though I don't agree with everything he believed or did, I respect him for his spirit and courage.
This little collection is filled with stories ranging from a bayberry-scented apparition in the home of a conservative banker in Philadelphia to a premonition of death given to a striptease artist on the night train to Zurich and so much else. Whether you believe the stories or not, they'll give you something to think about.
