I’m a Real Life Female Ghost Buster & I Say “BRING IT ON!”

28 January, 2015 // 2 Comments

Throughout the history of paranormal research women have often been the leading figures despite being under-represented at every step of the way. Eleanor Sidgwick was a leading figure in the Society for Psychical Research – easily the most established organisation dedicated to paranormal research in the country, if not the globe. [...]

A British Slenderman? I Don’t Think So… (updated)

25 January, 2015 // 9 Comments

Update: The Mirror who were first to report on Christine Hamlet’s photo of Slenderman used the wrong photograph. The photo used (that I then used here) was not the photo she claimed showed Slenderman, but was in fact a photo that she thought showed a Black Eyed Kid also said to haunt Cannock’s Chase. That photo can be seen here. Mark [...]

Cannock’s Chase: An Open Letter to Lee Brickley

25 January, 2015 // 9 Comments

Dear Lee Brickley, I expect that you don’t think very highly of me after I gave your book a critical review, and you’ve blocked me on Twitter but I really hope that you’ll hear me out. You are just one year older than me and yet it seems that our approaches to the paranormal are completely different. The nonsense you pulled with [...]

At the end of each year I compile a ‘The Worst Ghosts of…’ list and 2014 was no exception. The #1 spot on the 2014 list went to the stupid Black Eyed Kids sightings coming out of Cannock’s Chase at the hands of paranormal author Lee Brickley and at the end of the list for last year I made a prediction, as follows: I predict [...]

It will be a week by week update on any ridiculous and weak ghost stories that have made it into the mainstream news in the past seven days. As this is the first bulletin of 2015 I am going to include the last ten days. Watch Terrifying Ghost Pursue Car This [...]

Ghosts For Christmas

24 December, 2014 // 0 Comments

As a self confessed ghost geek I am really interested in modern paranormal phenomena of all shapes and sizes. I also love reading ghost stories, with The End of The Line being one of the best books I read in 2914. It’s an anthology of horror stories based on or around underground railway systems which I bought because the real life ghost [...]

The 5 Worst Ghosts of 2014

20 December, 2014 // 2 Comments

Since 2010 I have been writing an end-of-year summary of the five ghost stories that made me grumpy or angry because of their rubbish nature and 2014 is in no way different. Technically there are still eleven days left in the year at the time of writing this but I think (read ‘hope‘) it’s safe to assume that Christmas and New [...]
