Halloween is a time for some creepy urban legends, most of which are more fiction then fact.
Recently, I wrote about my own Halloween related childhood urban legend for the Dolphin Talk newspaper out of Seadrift, Texas. It involved a reported ‘Witch’ who pulled kids inside her house when they went Trick or Treating.
This of course, was all hogwash, rubbish and fantasy.
It has been said however that truth can be stranger then fiction.

An article in The Guardian caught my eye today and I felt it had relevance to this blog for a number of reasons. First of all, the title, Precognition studies and the curse of the failed replications, definitely hinted at a link to the spirit world and the accompanying photograph of a spiritualist gazing into a crystal ball only added to that appearance. Secondly, the main meat of the article touched on something very close to my heart with regards to parapsychology and any research into the spirit world – the importance of good science.
