77: DON ALLISON: GHOST JOURNALIST & SKEPTIC

 

PLAY EPISODE 77:

 

Would it be a good thing to be able to talk to the dead? Would we ever know closure?

Paranormal author, ghost hunter & journalist Don Allison is back for part two of his interview on episode 77: Don Allison: Ghost Journalist & Skeptic. We celebrate his work and the fact that he is a skeptic, someone who questions his paranormal experiences. We need skeptics to give legitimacy to the paranormal community. And he’s has had some experiences he can’t explain.

Journalist Don Allison went to Gettysburg and met a ghost, and the bucolic Pennsylvania town where the American Civil War reached a turning point is the perfect haunted battlefield to meet a spirit. On episode 76, horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas spend some time with an amazing scholar, sensitive and paranormal journalist from Ohio, Don Allison.

We also feature two more readings from his book, I Met A Ghost in Gettysburg, read by British folksinger, David Walton.

Don tells us what it’s like to be sensitive to the spirit world, but he’s also a skeptic, a medium scientist trying to explain these paranormal happenings. He shares two more passages from his book, I Met a Ghost in Gettysburg, read by British folksinger, David Walton.  And yes, a ghost really did snap his underwear and played mandolin on request. Those ghosts are cheeky! Some of Don’s stories from his current home are just chilling and others are frustrating, like how the spirits won’t let him listen to the sports he wants to on the radio!

 

DON ALLISON:

Don Allison is a lifelong resident of Williams County, Ohio, where the historic home he shares with his wife, Diane, is located. A 1976 graduate of Stryker High School, he earned a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from the University of Toledo in 1980.

As a high school student in the early 1970’s Don got his start in journalism as a sports writer and photographer with the weekly Advance Reporter newspaper, now known as the Village Reporter. He joined The Bryan Times as county editor in 1981, where he later served as editor and currently is senior editor. He has received numerous Associated Press and United Press International awards for his news, feature and column writing.

Drawing on knowledge gained from a lifetime of studying the Civil War, Don has written extensively about that conflict. He and Diane are the founders of Faded Banner Publications, which publishes books on the Civil War and Northwest Ohio history.

Don’s books include “I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg: A Journalist’s Journey Into the Paranormal,” “Hell on Belle Isle: Diary of a Civil War POW” and “The Best of On My Mind: The Bryan Times Newspaper Columns of Don Allison.” Each is available for $15.95 plus $2.50 shipping and handling from Faded Banner Publications, PO Box 101, Bryan, OH 43506. In addition, copies may be ordered online at www.fadedbanner.com.

Over a ghost box, a civil war spirit played their requests on the mandolin in Gettysburg.

HE MET A GHOST IN GETTYSBURG

For years, the ghosts of his new home called to him. First, they nearly killed him in a car accident. Then, after he renovated the house, they kept rolling marbles upstairs or pulled pranks like changing radio stations, forcing him to listen to Bowling Green State University play basketball, which was a horror-in-itself because Don’s a Toledo graduate! Don shares his many stories with the paranormal, and British singer David Walton narrates two selections from his book.

After years of experiences that he could not rationally explain — experiences that many people encounter, and do shrug off or rationalize – award winning newspaper editor and columnist Don Allison decided to search for answers. Experiences that Don and his grandson experienced in Gettysburg in the spring of 2015 finally convinced Don to present this serious look at the paranormal..

This is what noted paranormal investigator and historian Mark Nesbitt, author of the “Ghosts of Gettysburg” series of books, has to say about “I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg”:

As weird as those hauntings seemed to us, John also added a story about what seemed to be an alien encounter. He looked out of the bathroom window, he said, and saw two strange beings on the back porch looking back at him. He described them as having large heads, prominent eyes and elongated arms and legs. When they saw him at the window, John said, the beings ran off into the cornfield beside the house, not making a sound.

–From I Met a Ghost in Gettysburg by Don Allison

Author Tim Waggoner

Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night

Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

This was my death.

Life is an addiction.

Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.

73: MY PARANORMAL LIFE

 

PLAY EPISODE 73: MY PARANORMAL LIFE

 

Ghost hunter and sensitive Cathy Gasch, author of My Life Amidst the Paranormal, has been seeing spirits all her life. She comes on episode 73 to share stories of her international adventures among the restless dead. The dead need to be heard, and she is their conduit to the remaining world of the living. Cathy talks with horror authors T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas, telling the hosts what it’s like to be born a sensitive and shares her unique perception into this world with her ghost story, James, narrated by British folksinger, David Walton. Of course, the hosts spend a little time helping new authors get their start with advice from English horror author, Jasper Bark. Jasper talks about the writing industry in his charming way and about writing for the upcoming indie firm, Crystal Lake Publishing.

CATHY GASCH – PARANORMAL AUTHOR

Cathy E. Gasch was born, raised, went to school, worked and still lives in the state of Maryland. She is currently semi-retired and lives in Washington County with her husband of thirty seven years and seven cats. She enjoys working in her yard and garden and enjoys making crafts. Most of Cathy’s leisure time is spent reading and researching family history as well as historical locations. She loves to travel and has been to Ireland, Scotland, England and many wonderful and fascinating places in the United States. Cathy’s paranormal experiences have spanned over 50 years, and through them, she continues to learn about herself and the world, often times, through the eyes of those who have passed on.

 

Cathy E. Gasch has been able to sense the paranormal all of her life. Take a journey with her through haunted houses and ancient ruins across three different countries, and discover for yourself what it’s like to be sensitive to the paranormal. Mischievous ghosts, spectral apparitions, and forgotten souls abound in this collection of true spooky tales!

Cathy did a great job describing what she has experienced of the spirit world since she was a child. It is down-to-earth (pun intended) and an easy read. Cathy’s stories and experiences may make believers of those who don’t “believe.” You just might relate to one or more of her spirit encounters. The book highlights the fact that young children often are more open to, and accepting of, the reality of spirits among us.Amazon Reviewer 

By this time the room was cold enough that I could see my breath, I was shaking so hard that my teeth were chattering and I was so frightened that my entire body was rigid! — From Cathy’s true ghost story, James, narrated by British folksinger David Walton

Jasper Bark – How to Publish Horror

Jasper Bark is infectious. If you’re reading this then you’re already at risk of contamination. The symptoms will begin to manifest any moment now. There’s nothing you can do about it. You’ll become obsessed with his work, from the award winning collections Dead Air and Stuck on You and Other Prime Cuts, to cult novels like Way of the Barefoot Zombie and acclaimed graphic novels such as Bloodfellas and Beyond Lovecraft. Soon you’ll want to tweet, post and blog about his work until thousands of others fall under its spell. We’re afraid there is no way to avoid this, these words contain a power you are hopeless to resist. You’re already in their thrall and have been since you started this book. Even now you find yourself itching to read the rest of his work. Don’t fight it, give in to the urge and succumb to the joyous derangement it brings.

Tim Waggoner has published close to forty novels and three collections of short stories. He writes original dark fantasy and horror, as well as media tie-ins, and his articles on writing have appeared in numerous publications.

The eyes swayed as if they might belong to a huge serpent, but they were a solid sour amber.  Nothing at all like snake eyes.

The eyes, and presumably the unseen head to which they were attached, continued swaying forward.

66: ZOMBIE WALK

 

T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return (from the dead!) after a grueling October season with What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, Episode 66: Zombie Walk! They’re zombies! We’re dressed like zombies to participate in the Lansdale Zombie Walk. Early in the evening, they dressed up in gore and death then shambled up and down Main Street in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, enjoying the cool night air looking for fresh brains. After the walk, the horror authors gather at Comic Zen to record. Yes, those are fox ears T. Fox Dunham is wearing. He goes zombie in style!

 

Recorded on location at Comic Zen in Lansdale PA!

 

A quick note from owner Tim Hershey on what Comic Zen is all about. Comic books are meant to be an escape. They always have been, to me. Tim Hershey’s goal is to give you a place where you can come, find your next favorite comic or graphic novel (or toy or statue or collectible, etc.), and not feel left out of that escape from reality. There is only one condition to be included in this escape: Respect. He don’t care who you are, where you come from, how you earn money, what kind of car you drive, who your parents were, how you dress, or if you like my ’80s rock music. He will treat you with respect. And, he expects the same in return. But, it’s not just about him. You need to be willing to respect my other guests, who may be different than you. He enjoys diversity of all kinds in his store, and Tim will do everything he can to continue to foster, and protect, that diversity.

On this show, horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas talk about being zombies, recording during October, hang out with civil war ghost hunter, Tom Capper who presents some EVPs from their trip to Gettysburg and visit with other zombies who did the walk.

 

Fox interviews Max Booth III, author and proprietor of Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing, talking about the modern horror industry, his new podcasts and the cool new books coming out from PMMP. Max Booth III is the author of four novels. His mom has read at least one of them. He’s the Editor-in-Chief of Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing and an ongoing columnist at Litreactor.com. He works as a hotel night auditor in a small town outside San Antonio, TX. Follow him on Twitter @GiveMeYourTeeth and visit him at www.talesfromthebooth.com.

 

And they play the final installment of Daniel Braum’s chilling story A Man’s Guide to Costumes and the most Common ways to get Arrested from his collection, The Wish Mechanics.

The show features a song from Peter Aldrich, Jon Harman and David Williams, Dawn of the Dead! And a new true ghost experience from listener Bill Goff about a mistaken clerk at a store in Gettysburg recorded by British folksinger, David Walton. We have some great stuff coming in November & December!
