Haunting Houses

My Spookology article in the July edition of Phenomena Magazine this time focuses on an unusual type of ghost which turns the classic haunted house scenario on its head – the house IS the ghost. In these cases perfectly solid houses and cottages are seen and sometimes even visited only for the witness to shortly afterwards discover that the building became a ruin years ago or never existed before. I highligh several examples of the kind.

The free-to-download mag also features excellent articles on the so-called Shadowmen, ‘End of Times’ true believers, the fascinating Rowtor Rocks in Derbyshire, the alleged curse on the the Spielberg film ‘Poltergeist’ and parapsychology in the realm of UFOs. There is also a review of this years’ Rendlesham UFO Conference among other treats.
