Strange wolf-like animal shot in Montana

Strange Wolf-like Creature Killed in Montana

Social media is buzzing today about this story, about a strange, wolf-like creature that was shot and killed in Montana on May 16th. It’s clearly not a pure breed wolf, but people are claiming it may be the thought to be extinct direwolf, the infamous Dogman, a werewolf, or some other mythical devil dog. DNA […]

Mysterious Sounds in Bucks County, PA

One of my favorite unexplained mysteries, from when I was a wee lad reading about such things in the library, is unexplained sounds. In fact, one of my very first “mysteries of the unexplained” encyclopedias had an entry devoted to the Barisal Guns phenomenon heard in 17th century Bangladesh, so named because they sounded like […]

Brooklyn Hyena and Out of Place Animals

The phenomenon of out of place animals is an interesting sub-genre of cryptozoology and Forteana, but not one that I am usually drawn to, with few exceptions. I think it’s safe to say that creatures like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness monster, and the Dover Demon are far more intriguing than a […]

SETI extraterrestrial signal

SETI Mystery Signal Elicits Hopes for Alien Contact

The big story today revolves around a mysterious signal that was detected by SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The signal apparently originated from a sun-like star some 94 light-years away, HD 164595.

The following story, about a human foot washing up on the beach of Vancouver Island, is weird, but also has a personal element of weirdness for me. More about that in a bit. But stories like this always catch my attention. So apparently, including this most recent foot, 13 feet have washed up on the […]

Subtly Spooky: Paranormal Paintings

This post will be part personal disclosure, and part shameless self-promotion, so I hope you will indulge me… I have always been an artistic person, and my interest in painting and drawing goes back as far as my interest in the paranormal. From the time that I could read, I was finding evrey book I […]

Crop Circle Revealed as Nvidia Publicity Stunt

Crop circles are one of those annoying red herring, albatross-around-the-neck aspects of the paranormal. They are easily explainable, are far more normal than paranormal, and have been proven over and over again to be hoaxes, and yet people still believe that aliens are traveling billions of miles to come here and carve weird symbols into […]

Mystery Booms Heard in Connecticut

I have been interested in mysterious “booms” ever since I was a kid and read about the Barisal Guns in what was probably my first ever book on the paranormal. The Barisal Guns, for those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, refers to the series of sonic booms heard in the Barisal region of what is now […]
