I was struggling to identify something, anything, within the icy presence swirling around me. For eight years I had anticipated and feared this day. My eyes were rushing from side to side blindly; I couldn't focus enough to see. Faster and faster they went, bringing...

Everyone hates addressing โ€œthe elephant in the roomโ€. The elephant in my room was the loud creaking, shaking and obnoxious moaning above it. As a graduate of biology, I understand the importance of โ€œgetting offโ€. What I failed to understand is why the tenant living...

Seven feet tall. Skin gray and pallid. Eyes of pure black. Breath fetid and rotting. The smell of decay upon its lips. Wings, paper-thin and laced with veins. Blood of putrid green. Thatโ€™s how Iโ€™ve always imagined it. Thatโ€™s how I see it still; that unnamable, unseen...

These. Damn. Chills! I donโ€™t remember when they started, I just remember having themโ€ฆalways having them. Theyโ€™re the reason why I always wear layers, even in summer. Why I sleep with so many blankets. Why when Iโ€™m told to turn the heating down because the...

As a little girl growing up, my parents always tried to protect me by telling me legends and tales. My city is pretty notorious for strange behavior or paranormal happenings that have been occurring since the 1900s. One old tale that stands out most in...

I hope someone discovers this. I write to no one in particular, in hopes that this can be read by all. ย I write this with the intention of giving a warning- straightforward, concise, and blatant in meaning. Perhaps an explanation is due. ย Iโ€™ll try to keep...

Boxes. Boxes everywhere. Stacked on top of each other, scattered messily around the warehouse and some were torn open as if a child had been rummaging through them. The boxes held nothing of interest, at least not to the particular child who had been searching...

If you're reading this right now, it means I am no longer of this world. Either I've committed suicide or the Plague Artist has grown bored with my existence. I suppose it doesn't matter which. This isn't really a warning more than it is my...

She was holding his hand tightly when he heard a noise come from off in the shadows. Beyond the ring cast from the solitary light above he could see only darkness. She must have sensed his sudden distress as she placed her hand against his...

The thing about nightmares is that when you wake up, itโ€™s supposed to be over. Youโ€™re supposed to wake up screaming for mommy, turn the lights on, and see your familiar pooh bear in the corner, next to the toppled over Thomas the Tank Engine...

I always had a typical child's fears while growing up. From the whole "I think I see something moving in the shadows!" to "I need you to check my closet for monsters, daddy!" It was childish, but everyone goes through it. After I hit my...

We've all had our paranormal incidents. We've all had weird things, unexplainable things, happen to us. And we remember these events - it's not something you brush off, no matter how long ago. Now see, I'm not a genius writer, I can't tell you a...
