I walked the trail in Walker, WV (an old railroad track) to see the scenery and exercise each day. One day I was in the middle of my jog I felt a cold chill shoot down my spine. I shook it off and ran faster. Then I heard something...

July 1992. Near midnight. Rural Pocahontas County. Seebert Road. A friend and I, along with a lifeguard from the swimming pool at Watoga State Park, were returning to the campground at the park after driving to Marlinton for some late-night snacks. Earlier in the day, I'd lost my car keys...
Farm House Ghost

Farm House Ghost

I tell this account of a series of experiences my wife and me had a not-so-nice spirit. We had never planned to tell this experience outside of our circle of close friends, but I guess it is worth sharing. I rented an upstairs apartment of a farmhouse on a mountain-top...

House In Eleanor

House In Eleanor

I can't remember the year, but my daughter was 15 and she's 26 now (so you do the math), but it was not a good year for us here in Yuma (Arizona). My daughter was just getting over a serious illness and I was out of work. We had...
