Sorry to be doing a bit of self-pub, but Iíve recently picked up some astonishingly spooky myths concerning Haigh Hall, where Iíll be hosting my one-man horror night next Easter.

For those interested, thereís a new blog entry (http://paulfinch-writer.blogspot.com/). Weíre talking much scarier stuff than I imagined when I first took this job on.

Spooky stuff, Paul!

I assume that "ghost" behind you in the photo with that blog entry is a photographic trick - not a real ghost captured by the photographer?

Paul - just read that, and as usual when it comes to supernatural stories, whether real or not, (who am I to judge), it was of course time for Frank to 'repair to the bedroom for a fresh pair of underpants.'

As cynical as I am, that stuff always gets me.

Wish I could be there to listen to you in action, mate. If I were visiting my mum, I'd be there in a jiffy. She lives in Rainford, twenty minutes away. Its so close I attended Wigan judo club for six years in the eighties.

I write horror stories and ghosr stories and all the rest and I love reading them even more.

But.

I don't believe in ghosts.

I can accept the psychic photograph, the traumatic event that has somehow become implanted into the fabric of a place, I can bliev in lifeforms that may share our world but are not life as we know it, to cin a phrase.

But lost souls, evil spirits, no.

That most powerful generator of fear and hallucination and sef-conviction, the human mind, yes.

Freak cold spots, subsonic sounds that disturb our nrervous system, yes, but not traditional see-through, chain-rattling ghosts.

I used to be very religious, I used to believe in an invisble God and His Holy Spirit, I used to believe in the Devil and in his demons, but not any more.

Sorry.

Cheers
Tel

Sounds great, Paul. And the Noah's Ark room would appear to be the perfect setting.

Thanks all for your kind responses.

Caroline ... I can't say too much about the spooky figure in the photo, except that there'll be no need for us ever to get Derek Acora's take on it (if you get my meaning, LOL).

The most interesting thing about the haunting at Haigh Hall is how the local authority have attempted to keep it quiet over the years. They use the downstairs area of the building for functions and so on, but I wouldn't have thought that stories about ghosts would people off hiring the place for the odd evening or afternoon.

It's almost as if this place is a bit more than the average spooky old house. Hopefully much more will be revealed when we gather there next Easter.
