Review: Demon Street, USA: The True Story of a Very Haunted House

Demon Street, USA: The True Story of a Very Haunted House

ISBN-10: 1601633262
ISBN-13: 978-1601633262

Available: August 25, 2014
Amazon: Demon Street, USA: The True Story of a Very Haunted House
Barry’s score: 3 stars out of 5

My thoughts: A true ghost story? Probably not. I guess when the book includes quotes like:

“Maybe it was just a mass hallucination? Was it psychological?”

“Over time , many of the details had been blocked out. [...] His (Robbie) retelling the story to me (David) , added to the rewrite process of this book…”

Pardon me for being a little dubious when the author is not sure that what he alleged happened was real or an hallucination and that his facts come, not from his own memory, but from the memory of another person. All to often, I found myself shaking my head in disbelief.

Whether it’s true or not, I have to admit that it is as the Author puts it “Even if you don’t believe it, it’s a damn good tale.” It is a damn good tale. I enjoyed reading it, although I didn’t believe it for a moment.

Ghost story? No, I think that it is more of a boast story. I give Demon Street, USA 3 demons out of 5. While entertaining, it reads more like Grandpa’s old fishing stories than a paranormal investigation.

Product description: A summoning gone awry leads to problems for Penelope, who is driven from her home by phantom parties, a dancing stove, and a wave of demonic force that tosses her around like a ragdoll

Looking for help, she turns to her friend Robbie Lunt, who brings her to David Rountree, a Lakota shaman. Robbie and David embark on a whirlwind journey of learning, racing against time, visiting sites of spiritual power, and acquiring artifacts and allies in their quest to exorcise the evil before it can seriously injure someone–or worse.

David and Robbie’s mission to banish the demon culminates in an astonishing psychic battle on Halloween night.

Demon Street, USA is a forewarning to those who would explore the paranormal. Evil exists–but it can be battled and won!

Bigfoot News July 12, 2014

Barry Huddleston:

Amazing collection of alleged Bigfoot shootings in History.

Originally posted on Beyond Highbrow - Robert Lindsay:

List of Bigfoot shootings in chronological order. This post is going to be exclusively about the topic of reported incidents of humans shooting and/or killing Bigfoots from 1829 to the present day. I have a lot of other Bigfoot stuff to write about in my notes, but I am a bit overwhelmed by the many notes that I have. Please bear with me.

This is a post I have been working on for some time. I finally lost interest in it, and it does need a bit of updating with the Sierra Kills and the Shooting Bigfoot Rick Dyer incident. Both of these may be included in the list for this reason: the list is merely of purported or reported shootings or killings of Bigfoots by humans, and Justin and Rick definitely reported shooting Bigfoots and frankly presented us with more evidence than most of the other folks below have.

New book: Vacationing With Ghosts

A new title has hit Amazon Vacationing With Ghosts by Sharon Day. As most of you know, I absolutely love her and her work. In this book, Day gives us  “an account of [her] childhood summer home and the haunted local area, told from the point of view of the author as a psychic child in the 1960s and 1970s. This nostalgic look at Mobjack Bay and the quiet inlet where the family’s summer home was located is both a beautiful accounting of a magical time and place, and also an insightful view into how a psychically sensitive child deals with an ever-changing landscape of spectral comings and goings. From stories of pirate ghosts and blue orbs of floating lights in the graveyard to the lonely female ghost screaming on The Bay, Sharon Day transports the reader with her to dark and misty inlets, unsolved mysteries, quirks of nature and other realms using the very insights she utilizes today on her popular blog site, Ghost Hunting Theories.” (http://www.ghosthuntingtheories.com/)

Biography
Growing up in a haunted manor home in Virginia that was used as a field hospital by both the North and South during the Civil War, I never stopped asking questions about the paranormal and seeking answers. My book based on this upbringing, “Growing Up With Ghosts” was a Crow Awards 2013 nonfiction winner.

Now, I run a top paranormal blog, “Ghost Hunting Theories,” and have authored numerous books from horror fiction to social commentary/urban fantasy to nonfiction paranormal to dark erotica as the penname Anna Melissa. I am published in paperback and Kindle format on Amazon including “Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition),” “Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse,” “Zombie Housewives of the 1960s,” “Paranormal Geeks,” and “Growing Up With Ghosts.”

Just a little read on my blog at Ghost Hunting Theories and you will find an example of what I’m like. I don’t hold anything back. You can find everything from humor to serious theories in the field of paranormal to tips on how to photograph abandoned sites.

You can often hear me on the radio show Paranormal Geeks Radio at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/paranormalgeeksradio on Tuesday nights at 9 pm EST.

My upcoming books include:

“Zombie Housewives of the 1970s,” “The Hunt: Ghosts” (romantic horror), “Pagan Bloodlust,” and “MetaNet” (Scifi/horror)
