Three more Uncanny articles you may not have seen

At last I’ve completed the reassignment of the old ‘More Uncanny’ articles. The ‘More Uncanny’ section was intended to feature subjects not readily classifiable and was originally made ‘members only’. However, I’ve done away with the whole data capture idea and decided coming up with suitable articles for More Uncanny was also quite difficult. It does mean, though, that the articles I’ve rescued from oblivion don’t fit comfortably in any of the set categories on Uncanny UK.

Two of the final three articles are about prophetic dreams. The first recounts two examples from 19th century Wales when a vivid dream eneded up saving somebody’s life. The other article is the sinister flipside, how ignoring a dream allowed someone to die – and in the most gruseome way. You can read them at: and

Finally, we have a very odd story about a huge hole that opened up in a country churchyard ony to vanish a few minutes later. Weird! For want of anywhere better, I’ve placed it under ‘Ghosts’. You can read it at:
