Ghost Hunting Tales: Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign

I formed the Nightstalkers in the Fall of 1983, though my interest in and investigation of the strange and unusual began far earlier.

In 1974, my friends and I had a little group called The Monster Club. We organized ourselves after The Viking Club from John Peterson’s The Secret Hide-Out, but our inspirations came from the ghost breakers and monster hunters we saw on late night tv and in the comics of the period. We also fed ourselves of a steady diet of The Three Investigators, Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew. I mean, we were 8 years old, for goodness sake.

In 1977 we’d formed the Converse UFO Club. When a bunch of us had tested out of math in the fifth grade we were told to put together some sort of project to occupy our time while our classmates were busy learning leaning multiplication. I convinced the dozen or so of us to study UFOs. And we did. And it was glorious.

The Nightstalkers were (and are) really just an extension of those childhood flights of fancy.

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to take a walk down memory lane and display the various badges and symbols that represented my raison d’être.

You’ll notice, in the original Nightstalkers logo, a glyph from the Simon Necronomicon within the Indiana State outline. I had positioned it so the the circles corresponded with my hometown, Converse, and Shades State Park.

Symbols, glyphs, and sigils are important. they are the footprint we leave behind…
