Following his retirement from ghostbusting, Egon Spengler wrote his own book, Spengler's Spirit Guide.


This book cataloged the spirits Egon encountered during his days as a Ghostbuster (and probably included material borrowed from Tobin's Spirit Guide).

Spengler's Spirit Guide is also available in CD-ROM. Users can access a database of entities through the Demon Browser. In 1997, it was currently in Version 2.1.
