Ooooh you're very googlable. :: goes to read stuff ::
It's slightly nerve-racking, this sudden exposure....
I loved the ghost story, by the way, that popped up when I googled your name.
I'm glad you're out! Now I can call you Tony. Most friendly.
That story started off as a narrative poem. My goth friend asked me for a contribution to his web-site and...well, I'm glad you like it. I've never been quite sure what I feel about it myself.
I'm deep into Holzer by the way. I love the episode where he's interviewing the ghost of Aaron Burr in a jazz club. Thrilling!
Isn't Holzer fun?
So you are reading it page by page? I jump in at random, or by category.
I'm dreading the part about poltergeists, because the very thought spooks me!
I started off reading page by page, but I've started skipping. Some of the stuff about historical sites that might or might not be haunted was a bit flimsy.
But I loved the story about the little girl who asks what she thinks is a museum attendant about the room they're in and he counters with a question about how General Washington is handling the British. She tells him that General Washington has been dead a few years and Eisenhower is now President and he gives her a look of total disbelief, collapses onto his chair- and disappears.

I haven't found that one yet. Interesting: they were interacting. Isn't that very unusual?
Very unusual. But not, I suppose, if she was a psychic.
In another book I came across a story about a little boy who had been left at home while everyone else went off to his grandfather's funeral.
As soon as they were gone grandfather showed up and he and the boy spent the whole afternoon walking and talking.
Some children seem to have easy access to the world next door.
I bought a book for Kate (really for me!) for Christmas called "Weird U.S.," which talks about all sorts of strange creatures and ghosts all around the country!
I think, rather than posting a l-o-n-g post here, I'll put some of the more fun creatures on my own update.
There IS a "world next door." I just know it. Well put.
I'm going to talk about giant birds with rings around their necks that picked up a boy, and about a "stalking lizard man"!
Oh, I do think they just walk into our world and back into theirs.
Or they are dropped off by their space ships, like E.T.
See you in my parlor in thirty minutes?
LOL. I have an addiction to google, as soon as I know somebody is googlable I can't help myself.
But everything I have read so far has been very cool, you should revel in your celebrity!
I googled you and I want that book on *The Craft*.
Oh wait...what I meant was I want to BUY that book on The Craft.
Unfortunately we don't get any royalties. We sold the rights for a fixed sum.
I think it's still available. It was published on both sides of the Atlantic.
Holy crap, we have your's and Ailz' book, entitled The Illustrated Guide to Wicca
at a nearby library here
! You're famous, man ^_^
That's amazing. And the Cambridge copy is "missing". Does that mean someone has stolen it?
Hehe, I believe so! See how popular your writings are? ;)
