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 […]

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 […]

Book Review: The Real Men in Black

The Real Men in Black by Nick Redfern Whether people are interested in UFO lore or not, most are at least marginally aware of the phenomenon known as the Men in Black.

Monsters of New Jersey – Book Review

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State by Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck “As in all investigations in New Jersey, as elsewhere, it is best to approach your quest with an open mind, critically, skeptically, and patiently.” I suppose it’s fitting to start my review of Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious […]

The Mothman Prophecies

The Mothman Prophecies by John Keel I’ve known about Mothman for years. I’ve been reading books on the unexplained ever since I could read, and just about every compendium about monsters or mysterious beings has an entry on Mothman in it.
