Ghosts: The Ghosts of Japan

Book 'Em, Jan O

Readers, this is an in-depth essay about the ghosts of Japan and their history – so worth a read, try to make the time!  It fascinated me, probably because I lived in Japan for four years and was struck by the periodic appeasement of the dead by the living, something mentioned in the article and illustrated during the Obon holidays. This fine piece comes to us from Aeon, via Ghosts of Japan!

Ghosts: The House on Lindley Street

Book 'Em, Jan O

Readers, here’s an account of a most haunted house, one which had many witnesses attesting to peculiar events within. Although it was said later to have been a hoax, many individuals were not convinced of that – they had seen too much. It’s located in Bridgeport, CT. Here’s the back story: you decide. From the cool website Damned Connecticut, via The House on Lindley Street

Ghosts: The Moore Theater and Moore Hotel, Seattle

Book 'Em, Jan O

Readers, this theater is said to be very haunted – I’m including the story because the theater was part of the old Moore Hotel in downtown Seattle.  As a child, I learned to swim at the Moore Hotel pool, and I remember vividly the heebie-jeebies I felt the minute I got near it.  While I do not recall seeing any ghosts there, I do remember this creepy atmosphere of the pool itself, despite being surrounded by other people in and around the pool.  Perhaps it contributed to an irrational fear of deep ends of swimming pools I retained into adulthood, despite being an excellent swimmer and even swimming on a team.  I did some further investigation and lo and behold, there have been reports of ghosts at the Moore by others.  I submit one here, but if you simply google, there are more.  From Ghostly Activities:  The Moore…
