Biography:

Brandon Hodge is a collector, author, historian, and the prevailing authority on planchettes and early spirit communication devices. Long fascinated by the bizarre occult world of tipping tables, séances, Spiritualism, and ghostly encounters, Brandon acquired his first automatic writer—a boxed E.I.H. Scientific Planchette—while building a traveling spook show featuring his collection of haunted antiques. He has since amassed the world's finest collection of writing planchettes and other séance-related devices, all featured on his popular website, MysteriousPlanchette.com.

Brandon is a respected lecturer, and has lent his expertise in the occult field as on-air talent for dozens of popular radio and television programs, including a segment featuring his séance artifact collection on Science Channel’s hit show Oddities and the Travel Channel's Ouija-related "Patience Worth" episode of Mysteries at the Museum. In collaboration with Bob Murch, Brandon is writing a picturesque coffee-table book on the subject of spirit communication devices from their early beginnings to their modern equivalents. Titled "Talking Tables & Scribbling Spirits: A Complete History of Spirit Communication Tools," the book is slated for 2015 publication, and includes the most in-depth research ever performed on talking boards. Brandon spends his days maintaining an international network of collectors, dealers, and historians in search of the next big piece to the puzzle.
