Research Progress Update

Well, I thought this research would take a long time, but it's so interesting, it's hard to put it to rest. This is the map so far of the 50 places I'm studying as samples. I'm finding amazing correlations between geology/waterways/train tracks/history/and building construction. In fact, I'm already able to postulate cities that should have perfect conditions for having ghost phenomenon. Don't know yet what this all means, but I can't wait to get a bit more info so I can tell you more. The hardest part so far is finding out the body of evidence each place has for haunting and the construction of the buildings and geology. I already completed waterways/train tracks and it's really astounding. The most famously and documented haunted places so far have all the elements.

I'll keep you posted as I get more.


  1. I noticed that most of them are in the north-eastern part of the country. AZ does have a couple. Nice work!

  2. Yeah, admittedly reported hauntings in the west aren't uncommon, but it takes bigger cities to have enough people who got evidence of hauntings. The more rural, the less likely they have more than just hearsay. The hardest thing so far is finding a really well respected haunted place that DOESN'T have these features...interesting!

  3. i can't wait to read more. where are those spots you have in Cali?
    on another note, i bought the book "let the right one in" today. i want to read it first, before i see the movie.

  4. Yes, read the book before the movie. That's what one of my friends did and she said she was glad she did it in that order. I didn't read the book, but I think the messages came across very clearly and the setting was so amazing that I don't think the book could show the way it felt. I think it'll be one of those combos where the book and movie were very much equal. California...let's see, that's Alcatraz, Whittier Mansion, Queen Mary, and the Hollywood sign.
