I was talking about the old Stanley Hotel in Estes Park below in the discussion "Saturday Night Question" and I thought this would make a fun topic.
I'm writing some articles for the Left Coast Crime 2008 site...A Coloradan's
view of fun things to do in Denver when you are writing about the Dead...and everyone coming has wanted local Ghost Tours. Including a day trip to Estes Park and the Stanley. That's why I'm doing the Ghost Tour there at the Scottish Festival, so I can fill them in. That leads me to this question...
How come so many crime/mystery writers and fans LOVE ghosts and goblins? Is it because we love the chills up the spine? Could it be that hauntings are usually connected to crimes, unsolved mysteries and the grisly and macabre doings of our fellow man?
And how many of you actually do believe in the supernatural, other than God or Goddess?
Come on. Let's tuck another couple under the belt and 'fess up! We're all barflies here, and who loves a ghost story more than a bar full of writers!
