The She-Devil

The She-Devil

This story even leaves me a little bit skeptical, which is odd because I am a firm believer in ghosts and the like, but it is still a little hard to grasp. It is a story of an experience that my mother had when she was around 11 or 12...
White Thing of Ragland

White Thing of Ragland

For a very long time people have told me about the "White Thing" of Ragland, WV, a small community outside of Delbarton, WV in Mingo county. Several trusted friends of mine have told of their encounters with the thing. One friend said it could run faster than anything he'd ever...

I live in a place that would not even be considered a dot on a map except for the fact that we have a State Forest there. Cabwaylingo, which stands for all the counties surrounding it, Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, and Mingo, is a rather secluded park, full of wildlife. I...
