Demons & Possession with Ed

Ed and I are seated at a campfire, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. All around us, thick copses of trees, barely perceptible in the dark. If we focus our gazes up long enough, we can see the stars. I am sitting opposite him across the fire, contemplating making another s’more, and he’s watching me,

Conversations with Ed

Hello! I’m Jen the Strange, and I am here to translate some information from my good friend Ed (not alive, RIP) who is here to answer some questions about ghosts, life, the afterlife, and everything in between. Let me introduce Ed. Ed is a musician and a writer, but I think he is especially fond

The Bardo Bash by Gramps the Vamp — A Halloween Music Video

I’ve long lamented the fact that there isn’t a more developed genre of Halloween music. Beyond a few visionary classics like “Thriller,” “Ghostbusters,” and the “Monster Mash,” most Halloween playlists are filled with songs that are not written for Halloween at all, but just happen to have a lyric about monsters, evil, and the like.

Send a Hug with Ghosthug

As an extremely independent loner myself, it’s hard to admit that I need other people sometimes. The truth is, while we all need each other, our needs are different from one-another. Some people need a lot of friends and family around them in real life, along with the affection and human touch that generally comes

New Horror Novel: The Haunting of Cabin Green

In 2007, I took a vacation to a small green cabin in Northern Michigan. The setting inspired me, and I wrote most of the first draft of The Haunting of Cabin Green: A Modern Gothic Horror Novel while sitting inside the cabin. During the next 10 years, I launched a career as a Dark Art
