Real-Life Chillers: Preview

Hello, all.  And welcome to what I hope will be the first of an ongoing series about real-world chillers.

Not real-world horrors, mind you.  You see those on the news every day, and you don’t need me to feed you more shootings, bombings, or killing fields.  No, I’ll be bringing you chillers – the kind of stories that send shivers up your spine.  Yes, there will be murders, but instead of the squalid butchery you see every day, it will be the unsolved cases that still haunt us – Hinterkaifek, the Keddie Murders, Tamam Shud and the Lead Mask Case, even classics like Jack the Ripper and Zodiac.  There will be disappearances.  There will be bizarre, sinister mysteries like UVB-76.  There will even be monsters.  But each one of those monsters, however weird and unlikely, will be a creature that people really did or do believe in.

To give you a little sample of what’s coming, have a look at these Reddit threads.  They’re a large part of what inspired me to do this.

Stay tuned.
