I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find a reasonable number of items for weekly paranormal news. But it turns out there’s plenty of weird going around.
1) This week, a freaked-out British man found what appears to be the remains of a curse on a beach. Cursing someone is bad enough, but littering? Come ON. I predict bad karma headed someone’s way. Times three, natch.
2) The woes of being a paranormal investigator. These ghost busters thought they were being haunted. In reality, they were being targeted by thieves who wanted their cool gizmos.
But never fear, the ghost hunters were able to provide a detailed description to the cops.
3) An interesting article on why children are more sensitive than adults to spirits. And if you’re too lazy to click over to the article, the answer is because they haven’t been trained to disbelieve their experiences.
Guess I should have put a spoiler alert there.
4) The founder of Geneva Night Out appealed to the local city council to make an ordinance protecting any mythical creatures in Seneca Lake (NY). Are there any mythical creatures in Seneca Lake? Apparently, there have been sightings.
Kirsten is something of a lake monster snob after writing The Alchemical Detective, featuring Tahoe Tessie. She’s never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures are watching Ghost Whisperer reruns and drinking good wine (and even some of the not-so-good stuff).
Kirsten Weiss is the author of the Riga Hayworth paranormal mystery series: The Metaphysical Detective, The Alchemical Detective, The Shamanic Detective, The Infernal Detective, The Elemental Detective, and The Hoodoo Detective. She’s also the author of two paranormal proto-steampunk novels, Steam and Sensibility and Of Mice and Mechanicals.
