18th Dec 07 Liverpool Ghosts and Hauntings (plus mince pies)
John Reppion

This is one of the sessions that was postponed due to the building being closed. Luckily ghostly stories are traditional at Christmas as well as at Hallowe'en! John will share some of the eerie stories he has uncovered whilst working on the Liverpool edition of Tempus Publishing's Haunted range of books. As Christmas draws near, those present will be encouraged to share their own supernatural stories and experiences.

John Reppion is a freelance writer based in Toxteth. John's interests in fortean phenomena, esoterica, folklore, philosophy, theology and horror have led to his writing articles and reviews for numerous magazines and periodicals. Haunted Liverpool is his current project. John can be contacted direct on: haunted_liverpool@btinternet.com with any ghostly info for his book.
