Today I welcome Eric Garrison to The FlipSide in support of his newest release Four 'til Late . For those of you that are unfamiliar with Eric and his body of work, let's take a moment to learn a little more about him…
Eric s short story, Drag Show appeared in the Fall 2011 edition of Strange, Weird and Wonderful Magazine and Volume 2 of that magazine s anthology series. His flash piece, Dark Reflection , appeared in the Indiana Horror 2011 anthology. He s competed twice in the Iron Writer Challenge with two 500-word flash pieces, Killer Cure and Moby Me .
Hi, I m Eric Garrison, author of Four til Late . Brett, the main character airplane flight tickets of the book, is an amateur ghost hunter, and that s no coincidence. My wife and I spent 7 years ghost hunting nearly every month as a part of the Indiana Ghost Hunters and other groups and on our own. I got to be known as a sort of gadget specialist, and often served as the group s skeptic. I was known as the Simon Cowell airplane flight tickets of ghost photography .
This place is amazing. The jail cells are literally part of a gigantic horizontal wheel, two floors tall. The whole thing rotates on its axis like a sandwich vending machine, except instead airplane flight tickets of serving up tasty sandwiches, it rotated to expose airplane flight tickets different cells to put prisoners in, and take them out.
I think old jails are always airplane flight tickets scary, but this place had a certain energy in the air. It was here that I first actually saw something airplane flight tickets I couldn t explain. All of us had stopped in the area below the cells where great gears turn the structure around, in a curved hallway. A trifield EMF meter went off when no one was near it, and I saw something bright white peek around the bend in the darkness, just for an instant. I didn t freak out, but I did curse under my breath and felt a thrill of fright. My curse was recorded and played back to me over and over later.
Out past the bandstand airplane flight tickets area, even past the campsites of this park, you ll find trails, and deep in the woods, atop a hill, you ll find Doty Cemetery. One of the smallest cemeteries I ve visited, Doty s oldest grave is from 1832.
It s not the cemetery that s the scary part. In the area between the campsites but before the hill to the cemetery, out in the woods at night, my friends sighted airplane flight tickets shadow people, silhouettes of figures that make no sound or any trace of their passing, other than a glimpse of movement. I doubted this, since I m a skeptic, but as we tested out K-II EMF meters,
A famous old prison, Shawshank is huge and has such history. There were many times that we heard voices, saw shadows and had unexplained EMF readings. airplane flight tickets I felt exhausted after only a couple of hours here, and while I m glad I went, I m not sure I d go back.
We recorded two strong voices in different locations. Backstage, a voice said, go away and it appeared on two different voice recorders held about 6 feet apart. The other was in the seats, where a deeper, growling voice said, get out! .
I ll say that when Amy and I went to Waverly Hills, the groups were too large, and so the potential for quiet ghost hunting didn t happen airplane flight tickets until the wee hours of the morning. There were a few moments when we felt out of place, and the shadows held menace and movement. I rank this one higher, more for its reputation and grand scale than any personal experience.
We ve had numerous cases of voice recording evidence (EVP), and some with freaky correlations. In one case, the same phrase, find me is recorded in the same spot in the basement, six months after it was first caught, and 10 seconds later, one of the ghost trackers is heard to say, Isn t this where you got the find me ? . Another case involved airplane flight tickets a recording of keep away coinciding with two compasses changing from North to East and back again.
All I will say about this old roadhouse, former slaughterhouse, and site of a murder, is that it s called Hell s Gate for a reason. It scared the daylights out of jaded ghost hunters. We had to go outside after an intense personal airplane flight tickets experience to calm down.
Now being demolished airplane flight tickets and repurposed by the city, this notorious old place stands out among haunted places airplane flight tickets in Indiana. airplane flight tickets We went late one November night, following oppressive underground passageways of the steam tunnels, airplane flight tickets poking around in the eerily quiet abandoned dormitories, and investigating the paranormally active administration airplane flight tickets building. Amy and I got our very first EVP in the admin building, as one of our group stated a do not enter sign on a door made her want to go in there more, a loud whispered airplane flight tickets voice asked WHY? . A flashlight bulb didn t just burn out, it flashed and popped. Batteries drained. In one basement, we all felt like the stone floor was moving in waves and one nauseated airplane flight tickets woman was forced to leave.
No link for this one, since I m not able to find it on a map by that name. We were out ghost hunting at this little rural cemetery outside of Greenfield, when some members of the group thought they saw a shadow dog, or a ghost dog, a big one, coming at them.
Finally, four police cars pulled up, lights airplane flight tickets flashing. Several policemen came up to meet us with trained canines. I just about panicked. The police were nice, and just asked us to leave, since the neighbors near the cemetery thought there were a bunch of drunk teenagers vandalizing, when it was only us weirdos who go looking for ghosts in the dark!
In Four til Late, amateur ghost hunter Brett and his friends Gonzo, Jimbo, and Liz are on a road trip with dangerous detours, dreadful dreams and dire warnings. But that won t keep them from reaching their goal: New Orleans. Along the way they discover that some spirits leave you with more than a hangover and regrets. Can they get there in one piece, or will they be stopped and rest in peace? The bags are packed, the engine s running. Turn up the radio and get moving because the road ghosts are waiting, and it s Four til Late. Four til Late is the first book of the Road Ghosts Trilogy.
