The Paranormal Almanac of Western New York
A Book of Ghostly Lists
by Mason Winfield, 2012

Do ghostly beings lurk in the shadows of many cities, towns and villages across Western New York? Who among us is living above ancient burial grounds or bloody battlefields? Does our region have its own Loch Ness monster?

Call Mason Winfield's electrifying new book a ghostly gazette of the Western Door. Or perhaps a primer of paranormal wildlife in upstate New York. Winfield's meticulous research and investigative odysseys have produced a series of popular books, a DVD and an audio book. But his new work, The Paranormal Almanac of Western New York: A Book of Ghostly Lists, is a first-of-a-kind handbook of local hauntings. Tapping into his two decades of research, the region's premier paranormal historian has created a riveting almanac-like book that shines a spotlight on more than 600 spine-tingling incidents that involve over 300 local sites.

Iroquois Supernatural
Talking Animals and Medicine People
by Michael Bastine and Mason Winfield, 2011

With a rich history reaching back more than one thousand years, the six nations of the Iroquois Confederacy--the Mohawk, the Oneida, the Onondaga, the Cayuga, the Seneca, and the Tuscarora--are considered to be among the most avid storytellers on earth with a collection of tales so vast it would dwarf those of any other society. Covering nearly the whole of New York State from the Hudson and Mohawk River Valleys westward across the Finger Lakes region to Niagara Falls and Salamanca, this mystical culture’s supernatural tradition is the psychic bedrock of the Northeast, yet their treasury of tales and beliefs is largely unknown and their most powerful sacred sites unrecognized.

Village Ghosts of Western New York
Book One: Actors In The Half-Light
by Mason Winfield, 2006

The definitive study of Western New York's ghosts in the words of “supernatural historian” Mason Winfield. Guided by the insights of parapsychology and folklore and filtered through Mason's years of experience, Village Ghosts is a tribute to the hidden spiritual history of Western New York. Winfield takes you a journey into a hidden Western New York: one populated by Seneca witches, Underground Railroad mistresses, 1812 heroes, famous boxers, lost occultists, prophetic angels, and demonic invisible playmates. With its profile of famous personalities who return as ghosts comes a look at the psychic flora and fauna of the old Seneca Territory and introductions to its famous spirit-communicators. You may be astonished to learn that some ghosts may not be spirits at all -- possibly because some ghosts are the images of people who aren't even dead yet.

Life of the Supernatural and the Strange in Upstate New York
by Mason Winfield, 2000

Telepathic stalkers, Visionary cults, Iroquois magic, Psychic murder and poetry from the other world...

While criss-crossing the region during the research for his first book, there occasionally would be a story he couldn't tell. Sometimes the facts of the case were elusive. Sometimes the people involved wanted their privacy preserved. Sometimes even Mason wasn't sure what had happened.
