Not to be confused with the real world book Ghosts from Our Past: Both Literally and Figuratively: The Study of the Paranormal released by Three Rivers Press.

Ghosts from Our Past: Both Literally and Figuratively: The Study of the Paranormal is a book written by Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates about the paranormal which appears in the 2016 movie.


A book written by both Erin and Abby before parting ways, the book was later released without Erin's permission. She found out about it by a meeting with Ed Mulgrave Jr.. She that day found out more about it on Amazon including where she could get a hold of Abby. She went to Kenneth P. Higgins Institute to visit and request the book be taken down. She went with Abby and Erin to the Aldridge Mansion Museum to introduce them to Ed in the hopes they remove the book from Amazon. Ultimately she went with them into the mansion and she had a direct interaction with the ghost, Gertrude Aldridge.
