Ghost-Hunting at the Old Charleston Jail
Date: 2015-05-05   By: Jamie Davis Whitmer
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ghost Hunting vs. Paranormal Investigation

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."
A Checklist: 5 Considerations When Examining Paranormal Phenomena
Date: 2015-11-30   By: Nick Redfern
Many times, when conducting a paranormal investigation (or even simply experiencing something "going bump in the night"), we can jump to conclusions when often the experience is a product of our own mind or body. Because of this, having an assessment guide on hand during an investigation can be both empowering and helpful in determining a phenomenon's cause. Sarah Soderlund, author of the new book Haunted by the Abyss, presents a checklist of five things to consider when determining the cause of any seeming paranormal occurrence.
Why Are Theaters Haunted?
Date: 2015-10-19   By: Nick Redfern
Theaters are considered to be homes of art, performance, music, and any other reason why someone would want to step in front of a crowd of people. Often, also, theaters carry with them tales of hauntings, ghostly apparitions, and other paranormal phenomena. So why are these spaces so frequently haunted? Alex Matsuo, author of the new Haunting of the Tenth Avenue Theater, explains.
New Worlds of Reincarnation
Date: 2008-01-14   By: Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
Beyond Reincarnation is based on the simple premise that the more we know about ourselves, including our past life, the more personally empowered we become in achieving our present life’s goals. And, the more we know about ourselves, the more effective we are in accelerating our growth and developing our highest potential. Wherever we are in our life’s voyage, we are the sum total of our past. Carl Llewellyn Weschcke reviews Joe H. Slate's Beyond Reincarnation.
Why We Believe in Doomsday
Date: 2009-11-02   By: J. Allan Danelek
December 21, 2012 has been cited as being "the end of the world as we know it," based on the end of the Mayan long-count calendar. What inspires us to adhere to such annihilistic beliefs? J. Allan Danelek, author of 2012: Extinction or Utopia, explains.

In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
