Ghost Stories with Sylvia – Volume Two

We welcome back Sylvia Shults to the show this week for more ghost stories and to talk about her new book 44 Years in Darkness: A True Story of Madness, Tragedy, and Shattered Love. She has been writing for years, and recently made the switch from fiction to nonfiction. Following a lifetime spent in the pursuit of the weird and the strange, she now shares that passion with her readers. Her fiction (both horror and romance) is still floating around out there, but these days she concentrates on living a childhood dream — telling true ghost stories. Her book, Fractured Spirits: Hauntings at the Peoria State Hospital, was featured on an episode of the SyFy Channel’s hit show Ghost Hunters. It is the first book to examine the famously haunted asylum from both a historical and a supernatural perspective, and it was nominated for an award from the Illinois State Historical Society.

Curses Myth or FactWelcome to the 12th episode of the Horror Express. On this episode Jason and Ron talk about Curses. Also, we have a story about a curse with an Egyptian twist. No mummy’s just a bone! If that wasn’t enough, Jason has collected some interesting emails from you guys! So, come join us for this horrific train ride. How? Press the play button below.

Curses

A curse is any expressed wish that some form of adversity or misfortune will befall or attach to an entity, person, place or object. In particular, “curse” may refer to such a wish or pronouncement made effective by a supernatural or spiritual power by magic or witchcraft. A curse can also be called a hex or a jinx. In many belief systems, the curse itself (or accompanying ritual) is considered to have some causative force in the result. To reverse or eliminate a curse is sometimes called “removal” or “breaking”, and is often believed to require elaborate rituals or prayers.

As I said we have we have short story written by Ambrose Bierce. During his lifetime, Bierce was better known as a journalist than as a fiction writer. His most popular stories were written in rapid succession between 1888 and 1891. Bierce helped pioneer the psychological horror story. Our story is simply called Staley Fleming’s Hallucination.
