The paranormal community has lost one of its treasured writers.
Rosemary Ellen Guiley, 69, died July 18. No cause of death was provided.
Born July 8, 1950, in Florida, the former Executive Editor of Fate Magazine had over 50 books to her name, ranging from vampires to werewolves to angels and demons. She started her journalism career in New York after graduating from the University of Washington.
She was well-versed in most avenues of the uncanny and was also responsible for coining the term “near-death experience” with Dr. Raymond Moody.
She is survived by her husband, Joseph Redmiles.
BUD LIGHT IS FAMOUS AMONG ALIENS
After being cooped up underground in the Nevada desert, an extraterrestrial could really use a cold one.
Enter Anheuser-Busch, the brewers of Bud Light, and their impromptu keg party to celebrate the ill-advised Area 51 barnstormer three million Facebook users have signed up for.
The shenanigans infused “Storm Area 51, They Can’t All of Us” raid is planned for Sept. 20. Although Bud Light had distanced itself far from the madding crowd via Twitter, they did offer up one gem:
“Screw it. Free Bud Light to any alien that makes it out.”
They even made an exclusive can for the event.
PERRON HOME WON’T GIVE UP ITS GHOST
The new owners of the infamous Harrisville, Rhode Island home have a great marketing ploy to drum up business: tell the world it’s still haunted.
Cory and Jennifer Heinzen purchased the house in June and not long after they heard footsteps and knocks, as well as witnessed doors opening.
“This whole journey has been both scary — for many reasons other than paranormal — and exciting all at once,” Jennifer Heinzen told the Sun Journal. “I love that we have the opportunity to share the home with others.”
The Perrons, whose haunting experiences have been dramatized in The Conjuring film by James Wan, left the home in 1980.
According to a USA Today interview with Andrea Perron, Ed and Lorraine Warren never performed an exorcism.
It should be noted that Cory Heinzen has been a paranormal investigator for 10 years, visiting such sites as the Pennhurst Asylum of Spring City, Penn. and the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kent.
STUPIDITY CAN’T HIDE FROM US ALL
Add another ill-fated barn-stormer event that’s hit the social media platform Facebook to the paranormal escapades list.
Over 45,000 people have signed up as interested in the “Storm Loch Ness” raid planned for that famous body of water in Northern Scotland. Another 22,00 have confirmed attendance.
Three million people have signed up for a similar event promoting the storming of Area 51.
Unfortunately for the intrepid souls who launched the event, Loch Ness is a public space that is open 24/7. It’s also 229 metres deep, so it would be strongly advised to bring a personal floatation device.
