Weird Avenue: Creepy Art

Black Plague

News From the Spirit World is still a young and inexperienced websites as far as web life and growth go, but we have quickly learned that there is a subculture for anything scary and creepy that goes hand in hand with the paranormal.

With that in mind, I just figured I’d give space to some of those who love the paranormal but do things in other fields, usually with a frighting or disturbing tie in.

Today I was doing the usual, saving the Earth from aliens, watching for signs of Bigfoot in the bushes outside my window and surfing the internet, when I discovered that a common search term to get to this site was “Ghost Sex.”

I posted this neat little fact on Facebook (which I haunt like Lord Combermere’s Ghost lately) and a couple of friends commented, prompting me to use the search term myself.
