The Ghosts of Poveglia Island

0

Welcome to Poveglia, the most haunted island on Earth! Author J.H. Moncrieff has been there and on this episode of Monster Men, she tells us her stories.

Just off Venice in Italy, Poveglia is known as one of the world’s most haunted places.

Poveglia has a terrifying, plague-infected history complete with a creepy mental hospital, a deranged doctor, the buried remains of hundreds of people and maybe a ghost or two. The island is a legendary haunted location and off limits to the public, but that did not stop our courageous guest. Not only did she make it to the island, but she explored it alone. (Just her and the ghosts.) You will love her stories.

She also shares a few other fascinating stories of her paranormal experiences, which just might have you leaving a light on tonight.

J.H. Moncrieff is a delightful person and an amazing author. You won’t want to miss her books; City of Ghosts, The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts and The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave.

The Monster Men are happy to welcome author Tim Meyer to the show as he takes us on a journey to the creepy side of New Jersey. Tim is a long time friend of the show and one hell of a writer. We are so happy to finally have him on.

To help celebrate the release of Hunter’s new book, THE JERSEY DEVIL, Tim and Hunter recently co-hosted a book-signing event in a microbrewery in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. It does not get much cooler than that. This got us thinking that the Garden State probably deserved a show dedicated to all of it’s bizarre legends and monsters. And who better to guide us than Tim?

Tim Meyer has an impressive body of work, which you should check out as soon a you can. His books include the short story collection, “Worlds Between My Teeth” as well as novels like IN THE HOUSE OF MIRRORS, LESS THAN HUMAN, THE THIN VEIL, the SUNFALL series and the DEMON BLOOD series.

0

To celebrate the release of Hunter Shea’s new ghostly novella, we dedicate this episode of Monster Men to THE WAITING. Based on true events, Hunter has spun a masterpiece that is sure to keep you up at night with the lights on.

Here’s the description…

Clinging to life, haunted by the dead. 

Newlywed Cassandra Pagano lies in a state between life and death, her body fed and preserved by the machines at her side. While she struggles, unaware of the world around her, someone waits—a boy. A phantom that appears solid, real, alive. Cassandra’s husband, Brian, sees him in the house, by her bedside, running down darkened hallways. The boy walks without sound, whispers words that can’t be deciphered. 

Terror and tension are driving Brian to the breaking point. Why is the boy there, and what does he want with Cassandra…and her fading soul? 

Check out the show and then head over to Amazon and download your copy  of  THE WAITING for your Kindle or eReader.
