Almost every town in the United States—and much of the world, for that matter—has two strips of steel secured in place by a plank of lumber that connects it to other communities. It's the railroad. And every town with a railroad line, or an old train station, or a piece of railroad infrastructure (like a tunnel or a bridge) seems to be connected by another more supernatural line: railroad ghosts.

Today we sadly mark the passing of author Rosemary Ellen Guiley, a leading expert on the paranormal, and author of more than 45 books (including The Vengeful Djinn) and hundreds of articles on a wide range of topics. She was a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Guiley was a consulting editor of FATE Magazine and a frequent lecturer across the country.
Her knowledge and research will live on in her books and through the countless people she enlightened with her work.

As I walk through the doors of the local bookstore, I ditch my husband almost immediately and quickly dash towards the New Age section, hoping that this time I will pick up a book on the paranormal that might contain new stories about hauntings that havn't been written about already. After I search through the chapters of the new books and glance at the pages, I disgustingly set the books back in their home place, walk out of the New Age aisle with my head held low, and wonder why authors refuse to get off their derriere and seek out new hauntings and ghost stories for their
