In my mailbox: The World’s Most Haunted House

I’ve received hard copies of “The World’s Most Haunted House: The True Story of the Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street” (available August 25, 2014) and “Demon Street, USA: The True Story of a Very Haunted House” (available August 25, 2014) courtesy of Warwick Associates and New Page Books.

I have read “Demon Street, USA” and you can see my review here — (link). I think I’ll do a video thumb-through of “The World’s Most Haunted House”. Believe it or not — New Page has another cool title coming out, and I’ve read most of it, called ” It Was a Dark and Creepy Night” by Joshua P. Warren.

In my mailbox: Book of Lies

bookoflies

I received a copy of “Book of Lies” edited by Richard Metzger. This new version will be available September 1st, 2014.

Source: http://redwheelweiser.com/detail.html?id=9781938875106

First published in 2003, Book of Lies was hailed as a 21st century grimoire and instantly became a cult classic. Now reformatted for the next generation of magicians and all counterculture devotees, it gathers an unprecedented cabal of occultists, esoteric scholars,and forward thinkers, all curated by Disinformation’s former “wicked warlock” Richard Metzger.

This compendium of the occult includes entries on topics as diverse and dangerous as Aleister Crowley, secret societies, psychedelics, and magick in theory and practice. The result is an alchemical formula that may well rip a hole in the fabric of your reality:

  • Mark Pesce, author of The Playful World, compares computer programming and spellcasting.
  • Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, father of Industrial Music and Rave culture explains how samples in a rave song can have magical consequences.
  • William Burroughs and the occult.
  • Nevill Drury, Australia’s most noted occult writer, tells of Dion Fortune, Austin Spare, and Rosaleen Norton.
  • Donald Tyson’s “The Enochian Apocalypse Working” ask if the seeds of the end of the world sown in the Elizabethan era.
  • A biographical essay on Marjorie Cameron, the fascinating character from Los Angeles’ occult and beatnik scene.
  • Hitler and the occult–Peter Levenda interview by Tracy Twyman.
  • Robert Temple on how his book The Sirius Mystery’s, controversial thesis (for which he was ridiculed) was proven by the Hubble telescope twenty-five years late.
  • An exclusive Anton LaVey interview by Michael Moynihan, author of best-selling book Lords of Chaos.
  • Erik Davis, author of Techgnosis, looks at H. P. Lovecraft’s Magick Realism
  • Robert Anton Wilson on Timothy Leary and Aleister Crowley
  • Comics genius Grant Morrison offers Magic for the people.

It’s all here and more!

Richard Metzger was the co-founder of The Disinformation Company and is currently one of the minds behind the archival website Dangerous Minds.

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.
