What kind of evil lives at the Union Screaming House?
In this true and terrifying firsthand account, Steven LaChance reveals how he and his three children were driven from their Union, Missouri, home by demonic attackers.
LaChance chronicles how the house's relentless supernatural predators infest those around them. He consults paranormal investigators, psychics, and priests, but the demonic attacks—screams, growls, putrid odors, invisible shoves, bites, and other physical violations—only grow worse. The entities clearly demonstrate their wrath and power: killing family pets, sexually assaulting individuals, even causing two people to be institutionalized.
The demons' next target is the current homeowner, Helen. When the entities take possession and urge Helen toward murder and madness, LaChance must engage in a hair-raising battle for her soul.

Even after the doors to the Union Screaming House had long been closed, the haunting was far from over. Steven LaChance, author of The Uninvited (which chronicles the horrifying—and deadly—experiences his family had in the Union Screaming House), is back with a look into what happened long after they had left the house, the doors closed and locked...and the haunting continued.

Growing up, Debra Lyn Pickman was always interested in the paranormal, and hoped to one day have an experience of her own. This turned out to be a case of "be careful for what you wish for." Until she and her family moved into the Sallie House, she had no idea that evil could physically reach out from another realm, draw blood, and jeopardize your belief system and the safety of your family. Here she recounts the terror that beheld her family for years.
"…the gate to the carnal self is five-fold: sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch. A demon can come in through any of the five gates by tempting the guard at the door. If the guard allows the demon in then the demon has authority to move about freely. You gave him this authority by giving up your free will to stand and rebuke the temptation."
