    SciFi Horror title: communicating with soul on other side... help finding this title

    Hey all!!

    I'm trying to find this title, so I can purchase the book... I've got just a few details but Google has turned up nothing =/

    I know it's an older book, published before 2000.

    It's written in first person, and flows almost in a documenting format.

    It's plot: Scientists have developed this machine that can communicate with the soul once it leaves a body. They conduct an experiment and a scientist volunteers his body to be used and they communicate with his soul on the other side when some dark and suspenseful things then happen.

    I know it isn't much to go on, but any help is appreciated. I know it isn't "Soul Tracker", that is the only thing Google seems to give me.

    THANK YOU!!!

    Well I don't know what it is, but I am going to follow the thread and hope someone does, it sounds worth checking out.

    Reminds me a bit of Immortality, Inc. by Robert Scheckly. But it's been 20+ years since I read it so I may be off.

    A possibility is something by Philip Jose Farmer, it sounds like themes he likes to play with. I don't think it is his "Traitor to the Living"(1973) (a non-erotic sequel to two of his porn titles), but just maybe...

    I have that book, though it has been decades since I read it. It has some similarities with the OPs description but I don't think that is it.
