Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol

Strange But True – Vintage Book Review

Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol They say the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. And that’s definitely the case with my son. He inherited my goofy sense of humor, my love of sci-fi and horror movies, my passion for video games, and of course, my interest in the paranormal. As soon […]

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern

Monsters of the Deep – Book Review

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern I’ve never really shied away from the fact that when it comes to cryptids, I’m probably least interested in those of the aquatic variety. Lake monsters, sea serpents, and other anomalous water-based creatures just don’t typically hold my interest. And to be totally honest, I’m not even sure why. […]

Bigfoot Casebook Updated

Book Review: Bigfoot Casebook Updated

  Love Bigfoot history? Janet and Colin Bord’s Bigfoot Casebook Updated contains many Bigfoot witness stories (complete with legit sources) dating back to 1818. Something’s going on if people have been seeing Bigfoot all this time. Not only does the book offers sightings in America, but various parts of Canada. The Bords have done an […]

Monsters of New York: Mysterious Creatures in the Empire State

Monsters of New York by Bruce G. Hallenbeck When people think of New York, many iconic images come to mind: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, subways, Time Square, Broadway shows, crowds, and the general hustle and bustle of the business center of the world. But New York City is only a small part […]

Necromancing the Stoned: The Musical

When I first found out about NecroFusion, I mostly just couldn’t believe what a generous treat the nation was being offered to offset the trick of Hurricane Sandy this past Halloween. That, and I was excited about the untold treasures it was sure to contain. The cover has the enchanting vision of Zak looking like Master […]

Keep Out!

Keep Out! by Nick Redfern I think it’s pretty safe to say that most people are at least tangentially aware of Area 51, the top secret military base in the Nevada desert that supposedly is the testing ground for captured UFOs, as well as top secret military aircraft. Most people have also probably heard of […]

The Ghost Way

“The Ghost Way” by Lance Smith tells the story of the Ramanakajja family – father Jak, mother Eot and their four daughters – and how the family lived for a brief time on “The Ghost Way,” or land that is supposedly forever doomed to be roamed by demons. Set in Thailand, and written as a […]

Far Side Friday 10/7/11

Growing up, I was a faithful reader of The Far Side by Gary Larson. My dad always brought home his newspaper from work (do people still even read newspapers on actual paper anymore?) and I’d go straight to the comics section to read The Far Side. I’ve always loved the humor of Gary Larson, even if some of […]

H.P. Lovecraft’s World of Dreams

In his essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature,” H.P. Lovecraft explains that fear is the oldest and most basic human emotion. Fear of the unknown is the root of all fear, as death and pain are more prominent within the human mind than something like pleasure is. As a result, we tend to put more emphasis […]
