The Poltergeist Phenomenon

Lately I have been reading a book about poltergeists. It is titled The Poltergeist Phenomenon an In-Depth Investigation Into Floating Beds, Smashing Glass, and Other Unexplained Disturbances.

If you are interested in learning about poltergeists this is one of the best books you will find on the subject. It is full of case studies and interviews about various poltergeist activity.

One story/case I thought was very interesting was referred to as The Demon of Olive Hill.

In Olive Hill, Kentucky two paranormal investigators saw objects being levitated in a home. The family who lived there wouldn’t allow the researchers to stay because they feared that they had brought demons along with them.

The story began in 1968 at the home of John and Ora Callihan in Olive Hill.

One day in late November, the family reported strange rumblings in the house. Glass shattered in a picture of Jesus and furniture moved… From then on about 200 incidents were

Man-Made Monsters

Man-Made Monsters: A Field Guide to Golems, Patchwork Solders, Homunculi, and Other Created Creatures

Book Review by the CareTaker

Many of the fears that most of faced as children involved “things” like ghosts and monsters. Some of the scariest creatures imagined were more likely to be thought of as creations of humans rather than being of supernatural origin. Even still, a creature such as a golem or a “Frankenstein’s Monster” is very often thought of as being demonic or “of the Devil”. The idea was that such constructs could not have a soul from God therefore the life they feigned must have come from something evil.

Man-Made Monsters is full of interesting information and tidbits about the monsters that have been created by mankind ~ at least in our minds, myths and lore. I am sure there are those who believe the story of the so-called Frankenstein monster was based more in truth than others. And perhaps there was more …

Childrens Experiences With the Paranormal

Although it was long ago I can still remember the eerie feelings I sometimes got when I was sure that there was something under the bed. Sometimes I would lay as still as I could hoping that maybe “it” would not notice me. I would be as silent as possible so that if that thing did come out at me I would hear it and perhaps have a chance to get away.

Children have always been fascinated with (and often terrified of) the paranormal world. They wonder about such things as ghosts and monsters and other strange things. The paranormal is real and it has been shown that children are more attuned to “noticing” it than adults who have been desensitized.

I recently obtained a copy of a book titled There’s Something Under the Bed – Children’s Experiences With the Paranormal written by Ursula Bielski. If you are interested in learning about paranormal experiences of children because of your own …

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

Book Review

Have you heard of these cool classics with a zombie twist? First we had had Pride & Prejudice & Zombies (which is a New York Times Best Seller) and now Steve Hockensmith has written the prequel to Jane Austen’s “zombinated” classic novel.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls is the third Quirk Classic. This book is not based on an original Austen work, but it does stay true to the characters she created and gives Hockensmith an opportunity to fully demonstrate his creative genius.
