I’m looking for historical, mystery, and horror books to fill my free time during the school day?

I’m going to have a much lighter schedule in the coming weeks due to a semester course ending soon. Thus, I’m going to have a lot of free time during the school day and I’m in need of some reading to fill my time. I love history and horror/mystery books. Are there any classics that you could recommend to me in this genre? Thanks

Halloween is Satan’s Birthday ! Here are some historical facts (proof).

Since 2003 Halloween has been shooting up and it has become the second biggest decorating holiday of the year, right behind Christmas! That means October is one of the busiest month of the year in Europe, the second in the US! In Italy it was announced by the media that in 2007 almost 8.500.000 people (mostly kids) were involved in the Halloween festivity, never so much before in Italy, with a turnover (of gifts and various articles for parties etc.) of almost 280.000.000 Euro! Is the occult holiday of Halloween eclipsing Christmas? Probably not but its certainly a competitor. Americans and Europeans are shelling out more money for Halloween than ever before, this is what I can see all over the place. I will not speak out personally (this time) what the Bible teaches about Halloween, but I will simply report what “mainstream religious authorities” in Italy have said on October 30, 2006. The following statements can be easily traced with the help of a good search engine: “Halloween has been imposed by an esoteric- satanic culture which induces the community to perform rituals of witchcraft, spiritualism and satanism which can even lead to ritual sacrifices and violence. For satanists, Halloween is the most magic day in the year and during this night they perform black masses, esoteric-magical ceremonies and encourage witchcraft. Christian parents and all those who believe in the values of life should know that Halloween is the adoration of Satan which has been disguised

Any ideas for a historical haunted house?

I am the coordinator of the Annual Haunted House with a Historical Twist and am looking for additional ideas for this year’s event. All ideas “could have, should have, might have, did happen” in the eastern Wyoming, western South Dakota, western Nebraska, northeastern Colorado area that would be appropriate for a family oriented haunted house. This year’s theme is “Legends of the Old West” spotlighting 1870-1900. Thanks aforehand for all suggestions.

Florida Auctioneers Charles Fudge of Professional Appraisers and Liquidators of Crystal River & Kale Albritton of Lakeland Will Liquidate the Contents of Upstairs Downstairs Antique Gallery on Saturday, October 3, 2009 at 10am Along With the Late 1890’s Victorian House, Which is Rumored to be Haunted.

Ocala, FL, October 1 2009 – This Saturday, will be an important day for Antique Collectors, Dealers, curiosity seekers, and ghost hunters alike when a Crystal River auction firm liquidates the contents of Upstairs, Downstairs Antique Galleria at 725 E. Silver Springs Blvd in Ocala Florida beginning at 10am. Besides over $200,000 worth of antiques that will cross the auction block, the 1885 Victorian Mansion zoned for commercial use, which is rumored to be haunted, will also be auctioned. This is the second “haunted” historical building in the Fort King district to be auctioned during the last year.

The Historic District of Ocala is an important spot on the map for those interested in all things paranormal. Sci-Fi Channel’s Television Show “TAPS Ghost Hunters” featured The Seven Sisters Inn on an episode last year. Ocala Ghost Walks, a local firm offerning walking and carriage tours of the district, features several historical buildings in the Fort King area including Seven Sisters and the Ritz Historic Inn. The ghost tour owner, Catherine Wendell said, “The hauntings throughout the area seem to be in clusters of 2 or 3 houses near each other, with no rhyme or reason”. The former Upstairs Downstairs Antique shop building is an important stop on their tour.

When Professional Appraisers & Liquidators was hired to liquidate both the contents and Victorian building at 725 E Silver Springs Blvd, they were told that the painting of a gentleman, circa 1840s, that was hanging in the shop was NOT for sale. The owner stipulated that it “went with the house” and would be given to the person who purchases the Victorian seven-bedroom mansion. Why? Because it seems that strange occurances seem to happen whenever that painting is moved.

Auctioneer Charles Fudge stated, “The comment about the painting sparked our interest as to the history of the building”. His firm’s research led them to an Ocala firm that had investigated the mysterious occurances in June, 2009 and posted audio and video of their overnight surveillance of the Victorian home on their website. According to a spokesman for American Paranormal Project Inc, the not for profit volunteer based organization, made up of citizens, each with unique backgrounds who have an interest in the paranormal, “It is truly one of the most haunted places I’ve seen”. Besides their findings of EVPs and ENPs, they heard footsteps upstairs while the entire team was “locked down” on the first floor. He also said that “something” besides a member of their team turned a light on during their overnight investigation.

Whether you’ve always dreamed of owning a Victorian Home, which happens to be commercially zoned in a high traffic area, or you’d just like to own a building that has been “verified” as haunted, now is your chance. The building will be auctioned at noon to the highest bidder (upon owner’s approval). If a haunted house is out of your price range, then you still might want to take home some of the fine antiques that will be auctioned from 10am until about 5pm. Who knows? Maybe one of the antiques you purchase will bring a spirit along with it. And you’ll have it home just in time for Halloween.
