Ghosts: New Book Alert!

Readers!  My 15 page scholarly essay about the spirits and other elements in F. G. Cottam’s wonderfully chilling ghost stories is now available at my amazon link.  It is a helpful read for anyone who loves ghost stories, as it offers a literary analysis of the ghostly events in these superb books, and will help you see other ghost stories from a broader perspective. 

F. G. Cottam is in my opinion the finest contemporary author in the ghost/horror genre – my work will reveal why!  Cottam has written several subsequent books, all marvelous.  If you aren’t familiar with his work, you’re in for a treat.  As many times as I’ve read and re-read his books, I only crack them open during daylight hours – preferably when not home alone!  His work is original, brilliantly well-written, and do not disappoint!

Ghosts: Another Haunted Road!

Readers, here’s another collection of ghosts from a haunted road.  We’ve read about other highway apparitions – what is it about roadways that invites ghosts?  Some would cite the ley line theory (briefly, lines of underground energy); others would add that many people die in auto accidents and that many roads are adjacent to cemeteries.  Whatever the reason, I bring you this gaggle of ghosts, via New England Folklore blog. Enjoy!  

I always imagine that Labor Day weekend will be warm and sunny. You know, it’s the end of summer so we should spend one last day at the beach or have a big picnic. 755 more words

Ghosts: The Haunted Stanley Hotel

Readers, here’s a scary recounting of ghostly events, first hand, from the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO.  It is said to have inspired Stephen King to write The Shining (although the film exteriors were shot at the Timberline hotel in Oregon, the interiors, in England).  The Stanley has quite the haunted rep, and after reading this story, I can see why!

Ghosts: Ghosts of Glamis!

Readers, have a look at this wonderful post by Angie Deptula of the excellent Living Outside the Box blog, a faithful reader of this blog and travel blogger.  She has shared about the ghosts as well as the castle itself.  Thanks, Angie!  For those interested, I encourage you to google for more – there is a dark spirit which is unspoken, but the older ghost writers have mentioned it.  It is supposed to be ill-omened.  To get started, read on …

Glamis Castle, pronounced Glahms, is situated in the small village of Glamis not too far from where we are staying. The lovely castle is known for its associations with the royal family. It was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the current Queen’s mother. The history of the castle goes back to at least the […]
