Those who have been visiting the website for many years will remember there used to be hundreds of stories organized in a database. Several years ago, the old software I was using to organize the true ghost stories became deprecated and stopped working. Since the beginning of 2020, I’ve been working on restoring the stories to the website.

I’ve also been collecting the best of the stories into volumes I’m publishing on Amazon. This group of stories is currently not available on the website due to Amazon’s ebook content rules; however, if you’re an old-timer searching for a specific story, email me and I’m happy to send it to you. I have carefully edited the old stories, and they are available in both ebook and paperback format. So far I’ve published 13 volumes of true ghost stories as well as an additional volume focusing on the ghost light/spooklight phenomenon. The volumes are priced at $3.99 for ebook and $7.99 for paperback.

The proceeds from the book sales help to fund the website. I have never put any advertising on the site, so the books are the only form of “monetizing” you’ll ever see on here.
