I’ve just started a new column in the fine pages of Phenomena Magazine, edited by Steve Mera and Dave Sadler. It’s called ‘Spookology’, a tongue-in-cheek term I invented in a former Paranormal Magazine editorial of mine. Basically, it’s going to be a light-hearted piece focussing on those ghosts and other phenomena that succeed in being even more ‘out there’ than the supernatural (un)usually is. My first article is in the current, August 2011, issue.
The August issue has lots of good stuff, with a bias towards UFO and related subjects this issue. This includes a rather unnerving article about solar flares and how they might affect things on Earth. Frankly, living through another wet summer in Wales, I’d put up with a few bright flashes of extra sunlight, even if they do destroy telecommunications (I hardly get a mobile signal up here anyway!).
