‘NetNet: horror shorts, yeti, retro Halloween TV, costumes, and another true ghost story.

Renae Rude - The Paranormalist

There is no way I’m going to capture every great thing that happens in my personal web, let alone on the wider internet. The posts I feature here just happened to catch my eye. They resonated with me and whatever is going on in my life right now. And they are worth sharing.


Hunter Shea has released a collection of short stories called Asylum Scrawls. From now through Halloween, it’s available as an ebook, for only $.99. That’s a pretty spiffy treat for your Halloween loot bag. Pop over to his blog to read some story descriptions.


In the wake of the news about my favorite Bigfoot guy, I want to share this piece, by Martin L. Clemens of  Paranormal People: So the Yeti is a Polar Bear? I’m unconvinced.

wild, ancient urges.

One step and then one step

she knows, she senses what the
wraith is here for.

A quick darting shadow
has drawn up near,

the wraith laughs low and

“My darling, I’m here!”

Ghost in the rain.


Excellent post on some of the irritating, annoying habits of modern para research with a few demons on it’s trail.

It’s difficult to put my finger on, but I’m frequently tempted to simply disappear from “the scene” – never to be heard from again. I don’t know where it comes from, or even why – I just know that it comes on me when I least expect it.

Everybody sees demons – maybe that’s where this originates. It’s an obvious exaggeration, but if everyone I’ve met who claimed to be besieged by demons actually was, I’d be hiding beneath the alter in a monastery. There’s a demon epidemic! And silly me, I have yet to meet one after all this time and all these investigations. I’m sans diablo, and frankly, I’m not sure how I feel about that. I hate being left out of things.

Or maybe it’s other investigators. Specifically, the photos of super cool…
