Does anyone have a recommendation for a collection of Russell Kirk’s ghost stories? They seem to be out of print, but if you know differently, I’d love to know about it. Check out NR’s Great Books podcast for their most recent podcast on RK’s ghost stories. I’m intrigued. Preview Open

QOTD: The Haunting

 

The Haunting is a 1963 British horror film directed and produced by Robert Wise and adapted by Nelson Gidding from the 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. It stars Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson, and Russ Tamblyn. The film depicts the experiences of a small group of people invited by a paranormal investigator to investigate a purportedly haunted house.  Parts of the plot don’t work but the movie has some very spooky scenes.  I especially like the scene with Mrs. Dudley.

 

Beyond the Veil: Ghost Stories and Contacts from Beyond

 

Once in the long ago, there was a place on the internet much like Ricochet’s PIT. It had started out as the comment section for an odd news story, but it continued on with hundreds of thousands of comments long after that particular story was no longer accessible. Because of the initial story, it attracted an odd and quirky bunch who were soon camping out on the thread. One of these internet squatters was “Tor.”

Tor was hilariously funny. Over time, some of his history emerged. He had been a minor Olympian for his European nation. At one point, he had been in his country’s military and had participated in Desert Storm in the 1990s. Much later I found out he had also been in the forces involved in trying to protect civilians in the break-up of Yugoslavia. There was a lot of pain behind the funny.
