Back again, after a long time...

It's been a long time since I've posted here. A little updating for you.

It's been a few years since Mystery Animals of Pennsylvania came out. I'm thinking about republishing a second edition of it since there's quite a few new stories I've heard since it was originally written. I'm not 100% sure on whether I'll do that or not. But I definitely am working on another book called The Sable Terror, about the phenomenon of "ghost playing" in the United States and a recounting of some interesting urban ghost stories, mostly from the 1860s through the 1920s. Most of the research for that is done (though a few more stories trickle in from time to time) and it's mostly a matter of figuring out how I'm going to present the information and putting it together. So that's still a while off, but it's in the works.

Over on the left, there's now an "Articles" section up top. It has links to a few things I've written. I'm meaning to use this blog as a clearinghouse for most of my stuff - articles I've written that have disappeared into the electronic ether, links to other things I've written around the Internet, etc.

Lastly, I'm changing the focus of this blog off of exclusively Pennsylvania and Maryland and to just general pieces on Fortean stuff. No longer strictly cryptozoological, either, as my focus as a researcher has changed a bit. Poltergeist phenomena especially has become one of my main interests; particularly the links between it and cases of demonic possession and also its links to the "house spirits" (domovoi, etc.) of the Old World.
