Here’s another ghost report that didn’t make it into the book. There’s some poltergeist activity described, but it’s not very impressive.
It might have fit into the “Natural Explanations” chapter, but there are too many tricksters afoot. Even so, not all of the ghostly evidence is explained.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1917. You can hear me read many of the ghost reports here, readings first heard on episodes of The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts.
UPDATE: Formatting is still in progress with the book version of Spectral Edition: Ghost Reports in U.S. Newspapers, 1865-1917. Keeping the graphics looking good is proving to be difficult as I convert the Word document into a pdf. I’m still aiming for a pre-Halloween release, though.
