My ‘Spookology’ article in the latest edition of Phenomena Magazine is all about mysterious lights associated with hauntings. Two of these are weirdly illuminated rooms, including an intriguing account of a haunted chamber in Somerset in which the illumination was as bright under a table as on top of it. No source could be found for the light which was only evident after nightfall, when all the other rooms in the abandoned mansion were in total darkness. I also contribute a puzzling phenomenon I experienced in my own home some years ago.
As always, the August 2012 edition is packed full of fascinating stuff. Of particular interest to Uncanny UK readers is an in-depth article on the myriad ghosts haunting Windsor Castle, a location which one would expect to be high on the haunted roster and yet has previously been sadly neglected. Dr Karl Shuker’s short piece on the ‘Bat-Winged Monkey-Bird’ of Tunbridge Wells is especially eye-popping.
In addition there is an intriguing feature by Robert Young suggesting that ghost might be composed of the enigmatic Higgs-Boson sub-atomic particles and others on ETs, cattle mutilation and the worrying implications of weather-control devices, in addition to the usual excellent round-up of news and comment.
