This October at Steel City Skeptics

My first attempt at pumpkin carving.

My first attempt at pumpkin carving.

It’s that time of year again — bonfires, hayrides, apple cider, costume parties, harvest ales, and … ghosts?

Yeah, I said the other g-word. For the month of October, we will be taking a look at some of the spookier claims out there. And we’d like to hear from you!

What are your thoughts on modern Halloween celebrations? Do your (possibly only hypothetical) kids trick or treat? Did you, and do you pass out candy now?

How have your views on the paranormal changed over time? Were you afraid of the dark, or monsters-under-the-bed growing up? When did that change? Do you remember when it did, and what changed things for you?

Now through October, we’ll be accepting your take on Halloween, tales of terror, thoughts on fear, and why supernatural stories and monsters are still part of the lives of many. If you’re interested in contributing, email me at eliza @
