One great thing about Paranormal Urban Fantasy is that it’s fiction. Demons and other supernatural creatures are scary enough in books, but at least we don’t have to worry about them coming to life, right?
Right. Except for. . . .
There are enough puzzling and horrible people in history such as Vlad the Impaler and Elizabeth Bathory to spurn the legend of vampirism. These were serial killers so violent that they inspired five centuries of tales of supernatural evil.
There are many accounts through the ages of people encountering ghosts. Anyone who has been to Alcatraz Island, for example, can attest to an unworldly presence lingering amid the crumbling walls of the old prison. For further proof, take this online tour of haunted houses across the U.S.
Sometimes Mother Nature is terrifying. In the insect world, check out these 5 examples of parasitic organisms killing their hosts and bringing them back to life only to do their evil bidding. I have two words for you: Parasitic Hairworm. What the?! Uncool, Science. Un. Cool.
Just when you think it’s safe to turn the page, real life turns out once again to be much, much stranger than fiction!
