N. Riley Heagerty has been researching Historic Spiritualism and Mediumship for over 3 decades and has concentrated on the physical phenomena attending the great mediums who manifested their gifts within what he refers to as the “Century of Wonders ” between 1848 and 1948.
According to Mr. Heagerty, “That century produced mind-staggering manifestations witnessed on numerous occasions by individuals whose integrity would be an insult to question. We have been given countless instances of positive proof of not only life after death but direct communication by spirits. It is also a sad fact that the world, in general, is woefully unaware of these titanic events which, if understood, would change the course of human thinking.”
Riley has lectured in England and America and has first-hand experience with most of the recognized internationally known physical mediums, including private sittings with several of whom he and his wife Caroline, a well-known clairvoyant, have invited to their home for private sittings and observation.
Two of the most famous American physical mediums during the "Century of Wonders"(1848-1948) were the Bangs Sisters, May and Elizabeth, of Chicago, producing rare "Spirit-Precipitated Art."

“It is nothing to die.
It is frightful not to live.”
“I thought I knew about all the great mediums of yesteryear—however, Elizabeth Blake is one who escaped my attention. Clearly, she was a gifted direct voice medium who should be remembered in the rich history of survival research. Many thanks to Riley Heagerty for resurrecting her in this very intriguing book.”

"It's all in there: Spirits who touch and can be touched; a trumpet eerily suspended in space; a trembling table; sounds and lights. I really enjoyed the séance memoranda—the next best thing to being there."
