Three Theories to Explain the Chupacabra
Date: 2015-09-14   By: Nick Redfern
In early 1995, the people of the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico were plunged into states of fear and hysteria. There was a very good reason for that: a terrifying, deadly monster was on the loose. It quickly, and famously, became known as the chupacabra. Nick Redfern, author of the new Chupacabra Road Trip, presents three theories that could potentially explain the existence of the mysterious "goat sucker."
Tracing Lincoln's Ghost
Date: 2015-08-31   By: Adam Selzer
Lincoln scholar Hans Holzer once remarked that, "Either Lincoln is the most peripatetic ghost in the country or people think every tall ghost is Lincoln." Many people claim to have seen Lincoln's ghost, in places ranging from the White House to practically every other place he (or his body) ever visited. So how do we separate fiction from haunted fact? Adam Selzer, author of the new Ghosts of Lincoln, explains.

Coincidence, or Communication?
Date: 2015-07-27   By: Gary Gillespie
In his new book, Chronicles of the Unexplained, author Gary Gillespie provides several accounts of ordinary people encountering extraordinary, often unexplained situations. He and his family are not immune to these encounters, either. Discover why coincidences should maybe not so easily be dismissed as merely such.
Haunted Plantations of the South
Date: 2015-06-29   By: Richard Southall
Richard Southall's new book, Haunted Plantations of the South, is now available. What makes these antiquated locales so haunted—and so intriguing? Is it the legends, or the experiences? The author of Haunted Route 66, Haunted Plantations of the South, and How to Be a Ghost Hunter explains.
Ghost-Hunting at the Old Charleston Jail
Date: 2015-05-05   By: Jamie Davis
The Old City Jail ("Gaol") in Charleston, South Carolina was built in 1802 right over the Provost Dungeon and a potter's field. It also served as an insane asylum and housed Union soldiers (prisoners of war). Why is this site considered so haunted? Is it due to the on-site death toll (estimated to be anywhere between 10,000 and 14,000)? Is it due to the deplorable conditions? Or perhaps some of its famous inmates? Jamie Davis, author of Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums, went to explore.
The Dead Are Watching
Date: 2015-01-15   By: Debra Robinson
One common element between paranormal writers, enthusiasts, and investigators is an experience with a haunting. Here, Debra Robinson, author of A Haunted Life and The Dead Are Watching, discusses her experiences growing up and some of the haunted stories that she encounters as she continues her investigations.
Guided In Spirit
Date: 2014-11-01   By: Kristy Robinett
Kristy Robinett has for the past three decades been guided in spirit by Edgar Allan Poe–the famous Gothic writer most known for his bushy eyebrows, heavy drinking, and moody temperament. Yes, that Edgar Allan Poe. Why her? Here she shares her incredible story, dispels skepticism, and invites us to allow our helpers from the other side into our lives.
How to Capture Evidence of a Ghost
Date: 2014-10-22   By: Patrick Burke
Perhaps you've experienced paranormal phenomena, such as seeing an apparition or other entity. But how do you capture evidence of such? Patrick Burke, co-author of Ghost Soldiers of Gettysburg, describes his process and experiences.
Gettysburg: Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt
Date: 2014-10-20   By: Jack Roth
It's hard to go to Gettysburg and not run into someone who has had a "strange" experience there. From true believers to outright skeptics, everyone reacts to these experiences with a sense of uncertainty, and the one thing they all have in common is the fact that they can't confirm what happened to them. Jack Roth, co-author of Ghost Soldiers of Gettysburg, describes why we should embrace these experiences, despite anything that science might suggest to the contrary.

It seems strange, doesn't it? A patron saint of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other sexually fluid shades in-between. Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true.
