"It was an evil house from the beginning - a house that was born bad."
- The Haunting (1963)

Good evening.

Your wanderings have brought you to the Real Ghost Stories page, one of the most thrilling yet terrifying chambers in this haunted place.

. . . just a moment now, you look like you've seen a ghost! Care to tell us about it? Your timing is perfect because it leads me to what I was just about to convey to you.

You have wandered into the most thrilling chamber in this haunted place, because this is the place where you can share your own ghostly experiences.

I remember the first time I saw a ghost. I thought to myself, "Charles, you have most certainly taken leave of your senses." But as the intensity and frequency of the visitations increased, I ascertained that I was being haunted by not one, but many phantoms.

. . . Did you hear that?

That must be the new chap. Just arrived, he did. He's learning his new gifts . . . keeps flying around, making dreadful moaning noises.

See how it is? Help me out folks. Share your experiences with us. It really helps to keep things more peaceful around here.

Uh oh! I shouldn't have said that. Now the new guy is pounding on the ceiling!

Quickly now, draw nearer. I must tell you these things.

Your experience is welcome here provided it is non-violent in nature and does not disrespect anyone. In addition to real ghost stories, those of you who have a talent for inking unnerving, bone-rattling fiction stories, we want you to share them with us.

There are a great many masters who wrote ghost stories to mesmerize and terrify their audiences. It would be a pleasure to give audience to budding talent and provide an outlet for their work.

However, fact or fiction, we do require that all submissions be articulate, well-written, and grammatically correct. Submissions that contain phrases like "r u 4 real?" or "i m watching u" will cause your submission to be rejected. Likewise, stories that are all lower case or all upper case could be rejected.

Charles, the Residence Ghost Stories written by children will not be accepted. You must sound mature and articulate, or you risk rejection. Sometimes editing may be done, but many times there is not enough time and rejection is the result.

But if you can make your story well-written and either scary, entertaining or authentic, you could even end up getting special notice.

So why don't you submit some real ghost stories? (Or real scary ghost stories.) We'll put them here and you'll be making your mark on this site.

I've got to run. I need to teach that lad how to be more subtle . . . rookies!

Meantime, click here to submit your ghost stories. I'll catch up with you on the next page . . .
