The October edition of Phenomena Magazine

Once again I find I have neglected to promote Phenomena Magazine, despite having an article in it! Shame on me, for the October edition maintains its excellent reputation. My own contribution is the second part of my ‘Spookology’ article on the weird ghost-lore collected by South Wales clergyman Edmund Jones in the 18th century. This time I present, among other weirdies, ‘marvellous thin’ and giant ghosts, apparitions that crawl on all fours, one that goes ‘topsy-turvy’ and a small, spherical thing like a tiny UFO.

In addition there is more ghostly goodness in the form of an absorbing article on Time Slips by Robert Young, another on orbs and one on elementals, and we are introduced to a haunted theatre in New York city. There are some excellent extraterrestrial and UFO-based features, too, including one which intrigued me on ‘eye-floaters’, dead cells which float about in the liquid on the surface of your eyes. I’ve had these for a long time but I guess if you suddenly got one and didn’t realise what you were looking at against a clear sky, you could be mistaken for thinking it’s an air-borne object. It’s certainly interesting that they tend to be either disc-shaped or saucer-shaped!

A magazine well worth paying for – but of course, it’s free. Download your copy from
