By Way of Introduction
Tcrimsonhe intention of this humble but nonetheless aspiring publication is to guide and educate the inquisitive reader in matters of the supernatural. Granted that the title of the periodical you peruse so inquiringly will afford a none too subtle indication as to the main theme of our endeavour, it would be nothing short of a gross negligence on my part to allow a misconstruction that may lead, if unchecked, to your belief in this being our sole topic of concern.
    While ghosts, poltergeists and all things of a spiritualist nature are the particular components of the otherworldly realm that so often pique our curiosity (and it would be difficult for such a thing to be avoided when one lives in Europe’s most haunted city) our intrigue is by no means limited to those themes and one will oft encounter within these pages narratives chronicling subject matter as diverse as cryptozoology, the occult, unidentified flying and submerged objects, inexplicable falls from the sky and all manner of wondrous marvels in general.
    If this is not sufficient to engage and entertain you for whatever period you find yourself idle, we also have imagined tales from the pens of our very own authors that are guaranteed to amuse and enthral you.*
    In addition, we have incorporated the regular journal of the York branch of the venerable Paranormal Club (founded in in London in 1862) which will serve to keep the perspicacious reader fully informed of current manifestations and inquiries.
    Should any aspect of your scholarly endeavour necessitate a desire to contact us there are a number of alternative methods that will facilitate such an endeavour and they can all be found in the footer area.
So, with no further ado, let me allow you to browse the content and enjoy.
