As each week goes by I often find myself stumbling across various news, social media posts, blogs, articles, books, and more in relation to the paranormal. Often some of these pass me by never to be seen again, which can be a shame as when I see them I know that I want to read more on them. However, it can often be the wrong time, there are other more pressing things to take care of. As we are often bombarded by lots of this such information on a daily basis, a lot is lost in the digital ether.
So, what I wanted to do with this regular post is attempt to gather some various pieces of information that others like me may be interested to read. I’ve broken this down into a few categories below for now, hopefully you’ll like it – would love to hear your thoughts on the matter?
Studying The Stuff Of Stranger Things and The Addington Pilot Ghost
This week saw the return of that talking Mongoose, a film to be produced on the Rougham Spectral House and the Croydon Bar supposedly haunted by a woman that jumped to her death off the Nestle Tower.

- One of my favorite covers in #spiritualist publisher Excelsior’s series of #occult books (1940s-1960s). Alfred Svanqvist, born in 1886, was a teacher in Gothenburg. This book (1957) was a result of an ambition by Swedish spiritualist to collect material on historic seances. https://twitter.com/drpathistorian/status/1292854905208737799?s=12

This section is somewhere I would like to share a few of the events, investigations, conventions and more that may interest you all. However, due to our current lockdown situation – I have now included online events.
- Noting caught my eye this week, but just in case I’ve missed something, please don’t hesitate to add your event to the comments or message me to let me know about a future event.
I often spend a lot of my time reading paranormal related blogs, books and articles. So, I figured this would be great to share with you all too. Blogs and online articles are often a great way to discover more on the paranormal and even challenge your own perception of some concepts. There will also likely be items from published journals and magazines too in the future – which of course will be limited to those with memberships to those organisations.

Although generally the idea of this post was to share some of what catches my eye in the paranormal field week to week. I thought it would be good to capture some of this stuff in one place. Makes it easier to find right?
However, there’s always going to be stuff I miss, so please feel free to send me items and I may include them too. It’s a good way to share a lot of what’s happening out there in the paranormal world.
