The Enigma of Streetlight Interference (SLI)
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A young man of Dublin walks past a row of streetlights at night–and they go out, one by one, as he passes.
An engineer in Woodville, Washington, is stopped by police and his car searched to find out what he's doing to their streetlights.
An Australian in the entertainment industry parks his car in a parking lot, and the light above him goes out–until the following evening when he parks in precisely the same space and the light comes on again.
And that's not all. When a guest in a restaurant in Athens, Greece, asks that the music be turned down, they refuse–whereupon she "kills" the restaurant's electricity and they eat the rest of their meal by candlelight. Other people affect traffic lights, computers, railway crossings...
This is Street Light Interference (SLI). Once considered to be folklore–something that happened to a friend of a friend–today it is recognized as a scientific enigma with implications for our knowledge of the universe, including ourselves. In this, the first full-length book on SLI, we hear from some of the hundreds of SLIders who have reported their uncanny experiences, and consider the wider implications of this fascinating phenomenon.
"As strange as it sounds--people being able to turn street lights off at a distance-- this excellent book by Hilary Evans shows that it is a very real phenomenon. As this is the first full length book on the subject, this is destined to become a classic.” -- David Taylor, Northern Earth
“Anomalist Books have carved for themselves a first-class niche in the field of publishing thought-provoking and near-unique titles on anomalies of the mind, the physical world, and those strange realms beyond. And, SLIders is a great addition to [their] ever-expanding list of titles.” -- Nick Redfern, Reviews of the Mysterious Kind
