This is my personal project to document haunted locations around the world in an attempt to educate people about how the paranormal is interwoven into our cultures no matter where you are from as well as to spark an interest in local folklore and history.
I will also cover other legends and paranormal topics as well and add in a sprinkling of my own adventures in the strange and the weird. I’ll top it all of with some of my theories and scientific meanderings about the paranormal.
Now, who am I?
( My mug…literally and well, literally!)
Anthony Justus is my name and in 2003, I founded my own science based study and research team called S.S.P.R.S., to study paranormal phenomenon. We traveled the south taking cases from people and businesses who felt they had experienced something unusual for over a decade. We even were members of the TAPS Family for a period of time and were proud to carry the TAPS banner. We still maintain connections with them as well.
Much changed in the ten years, but what has not changed is that I still chase after the strange and unusual. While my investigating in the field has slowed, my urge for answers has not and I started my own blog, the Haunted Spots Library, to record my experiences and to chronicle the myths and legends from around the world. Too often are our histories cold facts, lacking the humanity, the human spirit, that made each time period the most exciting and often strange for its particular inhabitants. I wanted to not only preserve those myths and legends and experiences but perhaps from them, draw some nugget of understanding of the mechanism that drives psychic phenomenon. I also write for the Supernatural Magazine, an English publication and assist with articles when I can for the Spaced Out Radio show.
Southern States Paranormal Research Society is still active and if you live in the Appalachian area and need assistance or have questions about paranormal activity in your home or business, please visit us here and let us know how we can help: http://aearsparanormal.tripod.com/
I currently live in Kingsport, TN with my partner Ben Justus, fellow paranormal enthusiast, who’s hobbies include gaming, computer building, poi (Polynesian fire art) and putting up with me every day. He’s definitely got a talent for it.

I’ve upgraded my mug since the original posting two years ago of this bio. I now use a bigger tumbler. If coffee can beat the Borg, it can help me get through this crazy thing called life! — AJ, April, 9, 2017.
