Lots of exciting happenings here at Ghostvillage.com this month! First, I want to introduce you to our new:
Our intention is to make the auction a marketplace
for you. If you have items such as: books, electronics, computers, recorders, cameras,
EMF meters, or services like psychic readings, you can list your items
in our auction! If you're a book publisher, author, or bookstore, why not list some of your
Congratulations to Billy York of Terrell, Teaxs. Billy was last month's winner of:
Mystery in Mind: A Collection of Stories of the Paranormal.
The auction will draw thousands of people who are interested in the supernatural
to view your products and services. As an introductory offer, until June 10, all basic listings are free.
We want you to give it a try with no risk. The extras, such as using our server to
upload a picture of your item, or if you want to be a featured listing, will cost you a few cents
more. After June 10, the price will go to fifty cents per listing, and everything is payable via credit
card and PayPal.
This is a great opportunity to build our community even further. We have a place
that thousands of people visit each week to share their stories and expertise -- now we have added a place for you buy and sell items
that relate to your interest. Please note, we will accept all items in our auction, but we hope
there is a natural progression toward a predominantly supernatural theme to the items.
On other fronts, we are adding new members and subscribers constantly -- and our message boards have
been incredibly busy lately. I want to thank all of you for building up such a great ghostly community!
Important Notice: Ghostvillage.com will be
unavailable from Monday, May 12 at 10 PM EST until about 8

announce it on our home page right away. By clicking on the "winner" icon within Ghostvillage.com, it should launch your email with the appropriate

|Who's Who in the Town Square?
What is your name?
How old are you?
I was born in 1954.
Where are you from?
What do you do for a living?
I am a science teacher (temporarily doing case management until I go back to teaching).
Have you ever seen a ghost in person?
Yes, several times. One in particular that I will talk a bit about is the ghost "living" in my basement. This was without instrumentation (just my eyes). I have seen him appear to me as an outline
(kind of like in the movie Predator), moving past my peripheral vision, and more recently as an orb floating about
five feet off the ground. He has also appeared to my wife. When Sharon looked down the stairs into the basement, she saw a big,
burly guy wearing a flannel shirt. She has also seen him move past as a dark shadow (she wants
nothing to do with any of this!). I have had increasing communication with this spirit through dreams and
through trying to interact directly. His name is Jerry (as told
to me by a sensitive), and he has recently allowed me to photograph his moving orb (in infrared). Our group, GHOSM, will do an investigation this summer and help him cross into the light. I owe Jerry for being there to enhance my learning experience!
Kind of like on-the-job training!
What first got you interested in the supernatural?
For a while, I rented a house that happened to have a
ghost in it. This was before I decided to pursue contact with the dead. I frequently felt like
someone was watching me. The TV refused to turn off
at times -- I had to pull the plug out of the wall to enforce my will. My
collie would visually lock on and track something moving
across the room. This is when I realized the possibility of using infrared to photograph spirits.
Dogs can see into the short wave infrared spectrum. An
old lady stopped me outside the house one day and told me
she used to do chores for a woman that used to live there. She said, "I told her to get curtains and keep them
closed so he couldn't look in!" When I pushed
for more details, she said that the woman was murdered by
her boyfriend in that house! Kind of spooked me out at
the time. I was always a bit uncomfortable in that
bedroom, and now I know why!
Ghostvillage.com would like to welcome Lee
Prosser as our new Supernatural Library book reviewer!
Lee will keep our library stocked with reviews of all of
the latest work on the supernatural.
