Hexes, Ghosts, and Rock & Roll: A Paranormal History of America's Rock Era
Date: 2014-03-17   By: Matthew L. Swayne
Rock & Roll may only be a few generations old, but in those few short decades of existence, rock music has arguably changed the world like no other art form has. It's altered music, sure, but it's also altered occult history. In the past sixty years, rock music has produced stories of ghostly visits, tales of demonic encounters, lists of curse victims, and many more. Matthew L. Swayne, author of Haunted Rock & Roll, explains why tales surrounding Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and other famous, deceased rock stars continue to abound—and why rock remains so haunted.
The Stanley Hotel
Date: 2013-10-07   By: Sam Queen
The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for the "Overlook Hotel" in Stephen King's 1977 novel The Shining, and the inhabitants of the Stanley prove themselves to be inspiration for any horror novel. Sam Queen, co-author of Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums, discusses his haunting experiences during a visit.
A Paranormal Life
Date: 2013-09-02   By: Marcus F. Griffin
Is it possible to have so many paranormal experiences in a lifetime that we come to view them as commonplace? Marcus F. Griffin, author of Playing with the Devil, certainly believes so. Here he details his life of experiences "beyond normal explanation."
Higher Learning or Haunted Learning?: Natural and Supernatural Reasons Why Ghosts Haunt Our Campuses
Date: 2012-10-01   By: Matthew L. Swayne
If asked about which type of location tends to be the most haunted, most people would respond with cemeteries, battlefields, or old houses at the top of the list. But what about campuses of America's colleges and universities? Surely we've all heard a story or two from a local campus legend. But why are these institutions of higher learning truly institutions of haunted learning as well? Matthew L. Swayne, author of America's Haunted Universities, provides a few potential explanations for these haunted phenomena.
Spirits Amongst the Dead
Date: 2012-09-17   By: Mariah de la Croix
Why would spirits want to hang around a mortuary, a place filled with depressing energy? Psychic intuitive Mariah de la Croix certainly didn't think that they would want to; her five years in the funeral business proved her wrong, however. Here she details just what it was like to be so up close and personal with the spirits that remained near the places of the recently deceased.
Are You Haunted?
Date: 2012-05-21   By: Lisa Rogers
Most of us enjoy a good bone-tingling scare. As a whole, we spend millions of dollars each year trying to satisfy our darker side. We like our horror movies, can’t wait to get on death-defying rides, and we spend countless hours reading the latest thrillers. But what about real paranormal encounters? Could they be more commonplace than we tend to think? Lisa Rogers, author of On Haunted Ground, poses the theory that, for better or worse, we all may be a little more haunted than we think.
Living with a Ghost
Date: 2012-03-26   By: Kenneth W. Harmon
In the summer of 2007, Ghost Under Foot author Kenneth Harmon and his family discovered that they had a ghost inhabiting their Fort Collins, Colorado home. Spurred by paranormal experiences at the famously haunted Stanley Hotel, the Harmons begin their investigation. Instead of diminishing, the ghostly experiences increase as the Harmons grow closer to Mary Bell Wilson, the spirit inhabiting their home.

5 Reasons Your Home May Be Haunted
Date: 2011-08-08   By: Debi Chestnut
As a paranormal investigator, one of the first questions Debi Chestnut is often asked is, "How did the ghost get here?" The answer isn't as simple as it sounds—it requires asking a lot of questions of the homeowner and conducting hours of research. That said, Chestnut believes there are generally five reasons why a ghost takes up residence in a home. Here the Is Your House Haunted? author discusses five main reasons your house may be haunted.
The Sallie House Haunting: Physical Manifestations of Non-Physical Forces
Date: 2010-08-09   By: Debra Lyn Pickman
Have you ever seen The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, or other movies of that nature? Now imagine putting yourself in those roles and ask yourself, “How would I survive? Who would I turn to and trust with my deepest concerns and fears? Who, if anyone, would stand beside me through it all?” Growing up, Debra Lyn Pickman was always interested in the paranormal, and hoped to one day have an experience of her own. This turned out to be a case of "be careful for what you wish for." Until she and her family moved into the Sallie House, she had no idea that evil could physically reach out from another realm, draw blood, and jeopardize your belief system and the safety of your family. Here she recounts the terror that beheld her family for years.  

Ah, the ego! That little voice that constantly talks to you in the back of your mind. The all-too-familiar, endless dialogue that taunts and teases you. It can be the withering sub-text of an argument or the moral boosting rant of how you are better than all that. Yet, at the end of the day, as you lie in bed tossing and turning listening to the... read this article
