Ghost Writer


Last time in our States of Fear, we visited some southern states.  This time, we head due north towards the Great Lakes.  There are some stops that are simply killer.

Detroit is home to one of the most terrifying mysteries ever.  It’s the tragic tale of THE ST. AUBIN’S MASSACRE.  Wisconsin is next with THE ANTIQUE MANTLE CLOCK.  Then, it’s over to visit JENNY GREENTEETH OF LAKE ERIE.  She’s a beauty.

It’s getting close to that time of year when we give thanks for our blessings, my friends.  Next time in the Circus of the Unknown, we will do just that.  Charlie will set a place for you at the table.  Don’t be late.


There are some guests are the sideshow today, folks.  Charlie has them parading by you for disapproval.  Just don’t get too ancy.  You’ll get your turn to see them all.

First up is the origin of the witch, right down to the pointy hat.  Where did they come from?  Don’t worry, we have WHAT ALES YOU.  Did you know that the headless horseman comes from a long line of headless riders?  You meet another in THE DULLAHAN COMETH.  Then, it’s off to the mall for a monstrous good time in A PROPER FOUNDATION.

Next time, it’s back on the road as Charlie takes you through some more States of Fear.  Buckle in then, won’t you?


It’s time for a little Southern Discomfort down at the ole Circus today, y’all.  The Sideshow of the Surreal has some Southern delights for you.  Charlie is serving up deep-fried terror today!

Down in Alabama, they have this haunt that’ll hex you for sure.  Her name is HUGGIN’ MOLLY and she even has a local restaurant named after her.  Next on our tour of the southern states is Arkansas.  It’s getting too dark to see, so it’s a good thing there is THE GURDON GHOST LIGHT up ahead. Phew!  Something stinks.  Could it be Florida’s version of Bigfoot called THE SKUNK APE?  Don’t touch that thing!  You don’t know where it has been.

That is all from the States of Fear this time.  Don’t worry, there will be more locales on the road trip another day.


Charlie Barker trades in his straw hat for a soldier’s helmet today for the Sideshow of the Surreal.  Lines are draw and the battlefront is all around.  Keep your head down it you may be shot at!

In a dystopian conflict in the all too familiar not too distant future, it really stinks to be BEHIND ENEMY LINES.  What is even more tragic is THE HOPELESS WAR.  But there is always R&R if you can get leave.  Spend it at THE TAVERN AT FOREVER’S EDGE.  The bartender is out of this world.

Three tales from the south take over the Circus of the Unknown next time.  Join us then and until then, keep your head down.
