Ghosts & Monsters may appear to be a new site but it has a long (Internet) history. It’s the continuation of Ghostly Activities and Monsters On The Web. Ghostly Activities started in January 2013 on Tumblr before moving to a dedicated website later that year. Monsters On The Web started off as Ghastly Monstrosities back in 2016.
Now, both sites have merged into Ghosts & Monsters because of a new direction … one that’s a bit more objective and grounded in the history behind the haunt or monster.
I’ve always been more interested in the reality behind myths, monsters and mayhem, rather than speculation and hyperbole. This site will focus on just that, the facts of it all. You can decide if it’s supernatural.
You may see some links to Ghostly Activities here and there. Ghostly Activities continues to live on as a podcast and a few social media platforms. Don’t get creeped out by it. It’s just li’l ol’ me.
About Jacob Rice
Jacob Rice grew up in Wisconsin, deep in dark forests and along a great big lake. His next adventure with the US Army sent him to New England and Hawaii, before he settled in Chicago, along another great big lake. Finally, with family in tow, he headed to the Pacific Northwest, and staked a claim along a calm, cool inlet of water called Puget Sound.
Now, he spends his nights exploring haunted places, dread creatures and urban legends. His tool kit involves digital archives, Freedom of Information Requests, and a pocket magnifying glass … looking for the next clue in the secret history of ghosts and monsters.
