In The House of Leviathan - By Bestselling Author, B.D. Bruns

Recently, it seems the horror genre has been overrun with teen melodrama. Just google "why Twilight is bad" to get a sense of the disdain (my personal favorite is from The Oatmeal).

Bestselling author, B.D. Bruns wants to know, "what happened to just plain scary?"

In his new book, In The House of Leviathan, Bruns avoids the overdone teen drama and instead relies on classic gothic elements to create tension and terror.  “Mainstream horror has gone so mainstream that it isn’t scary anymore,” says Bruns. “Glittering teenage vampires aren’t even intended to be scary. But, classics like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, now that was terrifying. The difference is that Stoker embraced the unknown. I hope that readers of In The House of Leviathan find my embrace of the unknown to be equally thrilling.”

Set in an Italian paper mill during the 1860s , In The House of Leviathan follows Giuseppe, a humble man working in the mill, who witnesses Old Man Grapaldi summoning the Devil. Omens from the sea threaten the village and bizarre, violent happenings at their mill threaten his family. With their church rocked by inner turmoil and so many good men succumbing to dark secrets, Giuseppe himself must overcome his fears and his physical handicap to save his beloved sister.

Throughout the pages of In The House of Leviathan, readers can expect:

A reinvigoration of the classic horror and gothic genre.

Vivid imagery transporting readers to Italy’s exotic Amalfi Coast.

A connection between our greatest fictional thrills and the exotic history of the real world.

A throwback to masterfully built tension, believable characters with rich backgrounds and plot complexity informed by real world experiences.

Adventurer B. D. Bruns has traveled to over 50 countries to gather material for his bestselling books. He’s won 19 national and international book awards, including three national Book of the Year awards. Bruns’ first fiction book, The Gothic Shift (2014) won the International Book Awards Best Short Story Collection.

He also contributes to Yahoo Travel, BBC, CNN, The Daily Beast, and The Travel Channel.

Bruns’ travel adventures span from entering the Pyramids of Giza and swimming in the Panama Canal to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and touring Torture Museums in Estonia.

He has attended ceremonies from the descendants of cannibals in the South Pacific and has been consulted by a ghost tour in Malta. After residing in Dracula’s hometown for several years, Bruns moved to Las Vegas with his Romanian wife, where they live with two cats, Julius and Caesar.

The Seen And Unseen Dimensions Of Time

By Carisia H. Switala, MTS – Harvard University Divinity School

Author of Eternity’s Secret: What the Bible & Science Have to Say About Time.

I assume most people are aware of the recent “Voice of an Angel” story reported on the news about an 18-month old girl who was found alive in an overturned car 14 hours after it crashed in a Utah river.  The four police officers who rescued the little girl said they heard a woman’s voice calling out for help.  However, the girl’s mother died in the crash and there were no other people in the car.  The officers really believe something otherworldly took place.  Perhaps this story is a good example of the temporal and eternal dimensions of time merging together allowing the mother to call for help from the unseen dimension.

After years of research, I came to the realization that time is an elusive concept.  Most individuals believe that looking at their watch and hurrying to get to work on time is the extent to which this concept is relevant.  However, in my opinion, time is so much more than a measurement of sequential events.  For many years, philosophers and scientists have been trying to explain time.  The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, believed that time is the measurement of change.  Whereas Sir Isaac Newton, an influential seventeenth century English physicist and natural philosopher, believed that space was a static container and time was an absolute flow. Newton hypothesized that absolute time exists independently of any observer and moves forward at a steady pace throughout the universe.  He also thought that humans perceive ordinary time as a measurement of objects in motion like the sun.

Saint Augustine, an early Christian theologian and philosopher, believed that time was only in the mind and a human invention that cannot be applied to the universe or to God. Augustine’s view was that God existed in a timeless void. However, as the human mind evolved into a thinking machine that applies science to philosophical questions, the idea of relativity introduced the opinion that time is a physical dimension governed by physical laws. This opened up a more expansive view of the world and the universe.

I believe that the ancient idea of eternity, endless time, is a very profound and complex aspect of the subject.  What seems like the passage of time in a changing world is but an illusion in a three-dimensional space.

It is difficult for humans to visualize space. The standard human experience of space can be described in terms of three dimensions: width, depth, and height. Once the fourth dimension of time is added to the equation, parallel dimensions and universes become a clearer possibility in a space-time continuum. This advancement in thought and knowledge reveals the endless nature of time and the continuation of life, defusing the idea of a timeless void. It is a perspective that views eternity as endless time, not the absence of time as Saint Augustine suggested.

We measure the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours, and years, but this doesn’t mean that time flows at a constant rate. Just as the water in a river rushes or slows depending on the size of the channel, time flows at different rates in different places. Einstein believed that the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. In other words, time is relative. So relativity makes it possible, with the proper technology, such as a very fast spaceship, for one person to experience several days while another person simultaneously experiences only a few hours or minutes.

After I delved into scientific theory, I discovered that the idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics suggests that all possible quantum events can occur in mutually exclusive histories. These alternate, or parallel, histories would form a branching tree, symbolizing all possible outcomes of any interaction. If all possibilities exist, any paradoxes could be explained by having the paradoxical events happening in different universes. This concept leads to the conclusion that time travel is possible, and a time traveler should certainly end up in a different history than the one he or she started from. Hence, relativity and ancient notions of time variation and parallel universes are very similar.

My research into philosophy, theology and science inspired me to merge scientific and religious views about time into one reality of infinite time.  The Bible contains many time-centered passages and reveals eternity to humanity.  Science is also on the verge of discovering the possibility of opening up the fourth dimension of time in order to make breakthroughs in time travel.  When these two disciplines work together, who knows what incredible insights into the seen and unseen dimensions of the universe will be revealed.  The result will most likely be humanity’s inspiration to attain absolute knowledge of the mysteries of eternity.

The new paradigm of time I discerned is endless time. It encompasses the eternal dimension of the universe that allows for infinite life. This dimension contains the unending transformations of nonstop creation. And life doesn’t have to start in the temporal world in order to be infinite because life is eternal and therefore has no starting point. The illusions of the third dimension emanate from a static view of space and time where objects exist and events take place in a linear sequence.  Perhaps one day the next brilliant scientist will be able to mathematically prove the existence of eternity.

Image Of A Spirit By Paul Williams

Does An Unusual Photographic Image Capture the Release Of The Human Soul?

In the new book, Image of a Spirit, Paul Williams shares what followed after he took a picture with a cell phone camera of the space surrounding his mother after she died.

Paul Williams has lived a full and adventure filled. Life. He graduated Harvard Phi Beta Kappa in 1965 and became an accomplished Hollywood film director, dated many beautiful women many of whom became famous in their own right. He was also a devoted son who spent the final weeks of his mom’s life with her in Manhattan. He was there with other family members when she died, on the morning of December 27, 2009.

He watched as the caring women attendants cleaned up his mom’s body and dressed her in her favorite blue shirt. He couldn’t be physical with his mother, so he kept his distance and watched the other prepare his mom for her final journey.

Having been a professional photographer, it was then, an hour and fort-five minutes after she died, that he instinctively grabbed his Blackberry smart phone and snapped a few photos looking above his mother towards the two devoted women and the beautiful, loving expressions on their respective faces as they hovered over her.
Picture Above: Left to Right: Miss P, Mom on her back, invisible-to-the-naked-eye psi figure, Melissa, me on my knees.

A few hours later, he uploaded the pictures to his Macbook laptop, and to his utter amazement, discovered a small--maybe six inches tall, blurry hominoid-like figure just above his mother’s body which had been captured by his cell pone camera.

Williams had taken tens of thousands of photographs in his life, had studied and even taught photography at Harvard.

But nothing prepared him for the image that was before him. The photos clearly showed a small utterly clear, distinct image of a person like entity. One of the women was bothered, even spooked by the images. They couldn’t shake the feeling that something was really weird.

Williams determined that there was no obvious conventional explanation for this small blurry figure. It could not be explained by stray reflections or other well-known optical mechanisms. That much was for certain.

What was in the photos? Was it a picture of his mother’s spirit?

Image of a Spirit is the story of Paul William’s experience as he sought to unravel the mystery of the images.

Williams went on a multi-year quest to determine the possible explanations for the captured images.

He shared the photos and sought advice from several Hollywood celebrities and colleagues.

He took the photos to experts for analysis and validation. He researched the possibilities and contacted with people with the highest credentials in the fields of photography, psi research, chemistry and energy science.

He met with Dean Radin, America’s leading scentist  in the field of psi phenomenon investigation. And he met with Loyd Auerbach, author of the classic ghost image referece, the 1996 ESP, Hauntings and Poltergeists.

He gave the photo to Digital Computer Photography expert Professor Hany Farid, in the Image Science Group at Dartmouth College. Dr. Farid developed with Adobe Corp. (Photoshop) the fool-proof  authenticator of digital photos – utilized by courts, the NY Times, and intelligence agencies. Farid performed the forensic evaluation and verified the authenticity of the photo.

Can a cell phone be used to prove the soul exists?

Image of a Spirit. 

What People Are Saying

I find the image captured an hour after the death, above the corpse, of the mother of Paul Williams, is a really interesting anomaly. It cries out for an explanation. What does it mean? I don't know, but I'd like to know more about it. I've never seen anything like it. This well-written story of Williams' odyssey to answer the question is lively, unexpected, and intriguing.”

ANDREW T. WEIL, M.D., Founder of the field of integrative medicine, famed author of Spontaneous Healing, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, Healthy Aging and many others

I have never seen such a photograph before—a ”ghost” image that, one, was not amorphous and cloudlike and, two, was comparable to an actual person in continuous time and space—much less one a few inches away and dead less than two hours. I do not know of anyone taking a picture of a specific loved one, so soon after death.

DEAN I. RADIN, PhD, Senior Scientist of the Institute of Noetic Studies, author of The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena, Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality and others.

There are no extant photos captured in the same time and place as the deceased, nor are any so clear, taken in the modern era of photography.

LOYD AUERBACH, Author of ESP, Hauntings, and Poltergeists: A Parapsychologist's Handbook, A Paranormal Casebook: Ghost Hunting in the New Millennium and others

I confirm that the photo shows no signs of manipulation or alteration. In summary, except for the importing of the photo into iPhoto, I confirm that the image IMG00191.jpg is authentic.

HANY FARID, PhD, Professor, Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College, Inventor, in partnership with Adobe Corp. (makers of Photoshop) of the fool-proof forensic analysis system of digital photos.

The picture–-and everything that followed-- more than justified Paul Williams writing this extraordinary book, and you and me reading this book carefully.

From the Foreword: 

“You are about to read a one-of-a-kind and likely history-making book.  I only have one concern about this book.  The book is so interesting, Williams’ life is so extraordinary (and eccentric), the author is so colorful and such a superb storyteller, that the scientific and spiritual significance of his apparent afterlife communication account may become overshadowed by his life.

“Of course, this makes for fun reading, and I personally enjoyed the book immensely.  However, the primary reason I decided to write this Foreword was to make sure that you, the reader, recognize the potential profundity of what Williams has discovered, and what it might mean for science as well as our personal lives.”

GARY E. SCHWARTZ, PhD - Professor of Psychology, Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Surgery, and Director of the Laboratory for Post-Materialist Science and Spirituality, at the University of Arizona; author of The Afterlife Experiments, The G.O.D. Experiment, The Energy Healing Experiments, and The Sacred Promise Paul Williams.

Also, since the reproductions in the "print-on-demand" Amazon version of the book had such poor quality reproductions, we are only offering the kindle version--no trade soft cover-- (I hope to get a quality publisher soon for a print edition for sale)…

The Reluctant Psychic: A Memoir by Suzan Saxman

by Suzan Saxman, Perdita Finn

3.7 of 5 stars 3.70  ·   rating details  ·  20 ratings  ·  13 reviews

We all, as children, saw imaginary friends and heard monsters in the closet. But for Suzan Saxman, those friends and monsters didn’t go away—and they weren’t imaginary.

They were the dead who came to her from the time she was a little girl with urgent messages for the living. Raised in a house filled with secrets, she saw and spoke the truth as soon as she could talk, alarming the nuns in her convent school with her revelations and terrifying her own mother with her strange visions.

Each night she woke to see a man with no eyes watching her, and each day she kept watch by the window while her father was at work and Steve, her real father, a swarthy drifter, rendezvoused with her mother.

It was the 1960s in suburban Staten Island and she tried to hide it all, and be a daughter her mother could love.

Always skeptical of her tremendous gift, she struggled to come to terms with her calling even as she revealed the destinies of everyone, from housewives to hit men, stockbrokers to rock-and-rollers.

She could witness everyone’s future—everyone’s but her own. Why was she visited by angels and demons? Could she ever escape this strange fate? Where was her own soul mate?

Now Suzan tells the story of her journey and tries to make sense of her family’s buried secrets.

Through powerful readings of others’ destinies interwoven with compelling narrative, a reluctant psychic emerges from the shadows.

Bigfoot Keeps Showing Up On A Ladies Property In East Texas (Brian Vike Interviews Elaine - Audio Interview/Written Report)

From Brian Vike's UFO Files.

I've had a few strange encounters since we moved back to East Texas, not with UFOs, but with Bigfoot. He was here when we moved in the house I bought.

It's located between two forests and a gravel pit near by. A lot of weird things were happening, noises, bumps, tin beating on barn, etc. Then one night my son and I heard a noise I can't explain, we jumped up, got the big flash light, and along with the dog we ran out back, it was about 1:30 a.m. My son shinned the light above the tall grass. This was September 17, 2007.

We didn't see anything so Sierra and the German Shepherd walked around to the front where his truck was parked. I stayed in the back alone, leaning up against my Ford Ranger looking toward the north.

At about that time, I could see something light in color rising up out of the tall grass behind a dead tree limb lying on the ground about 10 feet from me.

This thing rose up, up, up and kept rising. I began talking to myself and rubbing my eyes. The creature must have been over 8 feet tall and maybe 3 feet wide. It really surprised me.

I know it was a Bigfoot, but the whitish color threw me off. He stood there about 7 or 8 seconds looking at me. I couldn't say a word, I was so scared. Then he turned and ran away in a northerly direction.

The horses in the pasture started acting up and the dogs at the neighbors began barking. I tried to feed him, and I bought a security camera, but I've never gotten any pictures.

I covered some of the windows in the living room and one night I heard him growl after I covered the window.

By the paths around the grass and bushes, I think he was looking in the window at me. My son heard him growl outside the bedroom window and I heard him growl outside the bathroom window.

Last week, the dog outside barked and ran scared, I got the flash light and shinned it across the street in front of the house. I saw his eyeballs looking at me for a few seconds then he slowly lowered himself behind the large round bales of hay.

I also know where he lives, I hiked into the woods and say several piles of human like feces, with persimmon seeds and animal hair resembling my gray cat that mysteriously disappeared.

You know Brian, you may not believe me, but it's kind of strange having a creature wandering around your place every night.

Hope all is well. Sincerely.

Thank you to the eyewitness to this ongoing sighting of the creature.

Sasquatch/Bigfoot Or Something Else Scares River Valley Explorer In Edmonton Alberta

Date:  Weekend of the 13th – 14th, 2014
Time:  Daylight sighting.

Hi my name is (name removed) I am a very avid River Valley explorer in Edmonton. I spend on average 30 hours a week hiking the ravines off trail River Valley spots and the very remote areas.

I was in Sheriff Patterson ravine, deep off the trail just quietly walking and taking pictures when I heard a loud noise in the trees on the opposite side of the ravine.

It scared me, so I crouched down to let it pass. When I crouched down it seemed to stop moving as well. That is when it really started to scare me, so I stayed very still.

I waited about a minute and then it ran through the trees very quickly and was outta sight. At first, I thought it was a deer because of its size and colour, but when it ran by it clearly was not a deer, it was larger and moved nothing like a deer, wolf , or bear.

It moved almost like a human, but a lot faster. I was then scared, absolutely shitless and briefly went to check for tracks, finding no animal paw prints, my fear reached a staggering level.

I hightailed it out of the ravine and back to my car sweating, panting trying to figure out what I had just saw. I don't know what it was, but I think it deserves further more investigation.

I went back the next day and looked for tracks again, but all I found was broken trees and trampled bush and grass. This happened last weekend and I have been bothered by it since.

I have not went back to this spot in particular, but I want to. That same day I found a den sort of shelter made of rocks piled up, not your typical shelter a human would make.

I think it's living there and it scares the crap out of me to go back, but curiosity eventually will get the best of me. I need some help with this one.

If anyone has witnessed the lights/objects, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Sasquatch ? - Prince George British Columbia Canada

Posted by Mel.

I heard the most angelic 1 whoop sound at about 2:00 a.m – 3:00 a.m. when having a cigarette outside. The next morning I noticed my bear proof garbage can was open and contents gone through. There was a few bags on ground ripped open.

This was in late September 2013 in Prince George, British Columbia Canada. PS same day.

I have been attracting them by howling from a moving car, so my sound echoed through the ravine below about 2 blocks from home. The same ravine with a creek runs along my property.

Diamond Driller Finds Sasquatch Tracks In The Harrison Lake And Up Toward The Fraser Canyon In British Columbia Canada

I live in Merritt and am very interested in the Sasquatch. Do you know of any sightings around this area of British Columbia?

Thank you for your reply, I could not find anything about Martindale’s sighting, it really does not matter. I seen the tracks when I was diamond drilling on the east side of Harrison Lake up toward the Fraser Canyon.

It walked up where we had a wash tub tied with wire to catch water for the drill, the property we were drilling was (company name removed) and it was a molly property (Molybdenite) and after we saw the tracks, we were told by the owner of the claims that (name removed) from Hope was packing samples out of there years before and they were struck by a blizzard and they found a cave to take shelter in and then got looking around in the cave and found beds lined with grass that were up off the floor, he assumed they were Sasquatch beds.

I thought you might like to know about this, Spuzzum was where you would have come out in the Fraser Canyon if we had of continued on through the mountains.

Image Below: Map of Harrison Lake, B.C. and the surrounding areas.

There was a hot springs down the valley from the camp where we would go and bathe/soak some evenings and that was the same area that the cave was supposed to be in. There was a path down to the hot springs that we used and it was made by game in the area, although we used to see a female grizzly with a cub, she treed my helper once when he went down to the camp for gasoline.

We had to go looking for him when he never returned and he was in the top of a cedar tree hollering to watch out for the bear. I also think the path was used  by the Sasquatch, but we never looked for tracks as we had not yet seen the tracks up above the tree-line where we worked.

We also had a prospector that walked the area picking up samples and he was never bothered by the Grizzly as he tied a metal pie plate around his neck and hit it with his hunting knife as he walked.

He said the early warning was what the bears needed.

Hope you find this interesting.

Thank you to the fellow for passing along the information as it is important to have, also I know there is a lot of Sasquatch activity all throughout the area there. So if anyone has seen Sasquatch through the areas mentioned in this report, would you please be kind enough to write to me with a detailed report. Please write to Brian Vike – The Vike Factor at

Thank you.

The Vike Factor – Posting Of Brian Vike’s Major UFO/Sasquatch Cases (The Vike Files)

Posted:  October 24, 2013

Important Notice: Brian Vike, Canadian UFO investigator and owner of “The Vike Factor”, “The Vike Report Radio Show" and editor of the “Canadian Communicator Magazine” and past owner of HBCC UFO Research has been re-posting his large UFO cases on the main blog.

A lot of these cases have audio reports (telephone interviews Brian Vike did with eyewitnesses) which can give a lot more detail to a UFO sighting than just the text report.

From the two year major UFO flap in British Columbia and other large cases all across Canada, the United States and Worldwide, Brian Vike brings sighting reports of unusual lights, saucer shaped UFOs, gigantic football sized Black Triangle craft, military sightings around sensitive bases and on and on it goes.

Brian received “thousands” of sighting reports over the years and so many of them turned out to be amazing cases.

All of these reports are now being posted and can be found at: 

I thank everyone who filed their sighting as they were all so very interesting.

Possible Sasquatch Or ? Sighting On China Nose Mountain Outside Of Houston British Columbia (Pictures)

(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Posted by Brian.

Date:  August 6, 2013
Time:  Daytime.

Brian Vike’s Note: China Nose Mountain is just a short distance from Houston, so I jumped into the Jeep and took the drive out to the area. Beautiful and rugged country and certainly a great place for something odd to be hanging about.

I had gone to the area over 2 days, also ventured in from the backside of China Nose Mountain and was not able to find any signs of anything unusual, but one has to remember, covering the entire area is almost impossible to do for me.

I have heard from folks that an area from the non working Equity mine down Foxy Creek has produced sightings of Sasquatch. This area runs in behind China Nose Mountain. I am looking for others who have been witness to Sasquatch or anything else out of the norm for this area. Please do write to Brian Vike (Houston, B.C.) All your personal information says private. Thank you.

Here is a link to China Nose Mountain thanks to Houston Hikers.

Hi Mr. Vike:

 I live in Bellingham, Washington, and was visiting family this past week-end.

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, my mother, 2 cousins, and I just finished watching 2 other cousins, brother, and sister and  brother-in-law, climb to the top of Taszuul, aka China Nose Mountain, north-west of Burns Lake BC.

The photo below is of China Nose Mountain and taken by the people who had the encounter.

Attached is a picture and video of an encounter that really is unbelievable. We noticed what we initially thought was someone ascending the face of the mountain.  At first, we cited another climber, but with the rapid climb, we figured a goat, but there are no black goats.

We yelled to those on the mountain and then texted our cousin that whatever it was, it was heading upward close to their area quickly. Whatever it was stopped.

Three of us had cameras and interestingly, 3 out of four had immediate trouble with their cameras. One was having trouble and shaking.

Photo Left: Another shot of China Nose Mountain and surroundings.

We thought Sasquatch? Alien? Who is going to believe us and decided to go up the road to pick berries and when we returned, that figure was gone. Many do not believe us when we share our experience.

Few state four witnesses could not be discounted and urged me to review your website, and provide you with my photo and video. My hope is you can corroborate our story. I believe my cousins would also be willing to share their pictures and/or video with you.

This is not a hoax and if you wish to contact me, you can respond to this message or contact me at (phone number removed). My cousin’s photo is much better and these ones may be the ones taken beforehand, but please review.

Since I am on vacation it’s much better to contact me via email.


Additional Information And Photos:

Hi, I'm back in Washington. We had an MVA in Fraser Lake and are fine, but shaken.

I don't believe that picture shows the black object we saw. I think that might be a crevasse. What we saw was larger than the people on top and it was ascending. It wasn't a crevasse nor was it a shadow.

The photo below shows one of the women pointing in the area where they saw the figure on China Nose Mountain. 

 I hope it is identified. The best that can be done is to cross reference it and the videos with a recent photo.

On the same note, I’m an RN of 19 years and before I left B.C. in 2002 to travel, I hiked atop with my sister and brother. Atop the first climb in a grassy area in the tree-line.

I was the first to get to that point, I heard the bush move and a huge thump that my sister and I both felt. We thought it was a bear or goat, but I turned around and told the others to hurry and didn't want to scare them. My sister saw the scared look in my eyes and also felt this movement on the earth

I’m sending another photo, I think the object is smaller than that crevasse looking thing that looks like a climber.

Possible Sasquatch Sighting On China Nose Mountain Outside Of Houston British Columbia

A sighting of something took place on August 6, 2013. From the sounds of it, a dark figure like person was seen ascending the face of the mountain.

Video has been sent, but pretty hard to see anything. So waiting on a picture taken by someone else who was in the group of people.

If anyone may have been in or around the area, in between Burns Lake and Houston, B.C. on August 6, 2012, or for that matter seen Sasquatch in this area, would you please drop me a line. Also I will be driving to the area to look around.

Thank you

Brian Vike Hears Additional Information About Sasquatch Happenings In Moricetown British Columbia (Short Audio)

(From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Re-posted by Mel.

New: This short audio clip has never been heard before. I did drive up and investigated the Sasquatch tracks in the snow, it was awesome, and the tracks went on and on. It was the most amazing thing I seen when dealing with Sasquatch.

There is a drop off in the audio (I removed some personal information)for 23 seconds, then we return chatting.

Melvina shares information about her brothers dog that was apparently torn apart, by "something" and a good number of dogs have gone missing from the town there, they believe Sasquatch is behind this. Also she mentioned two other sightings in the area.

Two truckers saw Sasquatch crossing the Highway at Moricetown and this would have been the same Sasquatch I went to investigate. Later Melvina told me about some years before this sighting took place, that a Sasquatch ripped apart the smoke house and got into the salmon.

This audio clip comes from a quick telephone interview for directions to the ladies home in Moricetown, B.C. over the Sasquatch sighting, to let them know I was going to be on my way. When I did arrive, there was a lot of folks gathered around. Many, many reports of Sasquatch come out of this area as I heard stories from others in the area.

There will be stacks of new audios to come that I never made public, mostly never had alot of time. My many thanks to Mel for posting all of this information that I gathered over the years.
All of the never heard audios, and large cases will be posted onto my main blog, Brian Vike, The Vike Factor -

Sasquatch Lifts Truck Onto It’s Side North Of The Strathcona Dam Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia

I live in Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia and have had experiences like that person had. You wouldn’t believe I will not go into the woods alone anymore, not even in my truck.

I had my truck lifted and placed on the passenger side one night while parked waiting for a friend just north of the Strathcona Dam right on the Gold River Highway.

Whatever it was ran right back into the bush where it had come from and screamed exactly like the guys on the “Finding Bigfoot” show. I took off right away and called the police and all I got was laughed at since there was no damage done to my truck.

Vike Factor Note: The person who sent this report to me, could you please send an email to me at, thanks a bunch.

Possible Bigfoot Sounds Hear Along The Mattatuck Trail Plymouth Connecticut

Date:  July 2012
Time:  Approx: 3:15 a.m.

I was heading back home on by Route 262 when I heard strange sounds in the Plymouth, CT area on the Mattatuck Trail in the state forest at night.

This is a dense area hilly and very heavy wooded and this is only about 10 minutes away from Waterbury, CT.

Plymouth is like a whole different state, not very populated and the sounds I heard were not coyotes or owls. I the best way for me to describe them is like a grunting sound with higher pitches.

I've been in very heavy woods throughout the state and never heard sounds like this before. I'm a fairly large man, but the noise scared me and I walked as fast I could back to my truck.

Did Hikers Accidentally Take A Picture Of Sasquatch While Hiking In Jasper Alberta Canada ?

I have had a sighting 10 years ago. I was 15 and we went on a hike up a mountain in Jasper, Alberta Canada.

A friend and my sister needed to go to the bathroom while on this hike, so we drifted into thicker bush.

We have a camera that would go off if you hit it hard. So as we were running into the bush, it went off and took a picture (trying to find it since Bigfoot hunting has become so popular), but it took a picture of what looks like a hairy thing standing on two feet with a head shaped like an ape.

Will post if I find the picture.

Loud And Bellowing Whoop Sound Hear By Witnesses In Naugatuck State Forest Connecticut (Bigfoot)

Date:  January 5, 2013
Time:  12:20 p.m.

On Saturday, January 5th, 2013, my girlfriend and I heard a very loud and bellowing "whoop" that lasted for several seconds.

This happened around 12:20 p.m. in the afternoon in Naugatuck State Forest, CT.

It sounded like we were roughly 20-30 yards away. I will be returning to the forest on Saturday 19th.

Awful Smell And Loud Screams Scare Hunters At Winthrop Washington (Possible Bigfoot)

Date:  October 1993
Time:  Approx: 8:00 a.m.

I was hunting with my brother in Winthrop below First Butte Lookout. The area is mostly dry, evergreen trees, plenty of open spaces, rocky and steep. We usually stay in the higher open areas, but on this day we decided to trek further down the mountain and walk out to the road (which I would guess to be about 5 – 7 miles below).

We, most of the time, stay together when we are walking. After a while of continuing downward, the scenery changed drastically. There was many deciduous trees, lots of brush, moisture on the ground, and the tree canopy made it fairly dark.

I do specifically remember smelling what I describe as skunk cabbage, which made sense because of the moist, dark surroundings. As we were walking, we had to change directions and walk around a huge thicket that was impassible.

All of a sudden we heard two very loud screams, which I describe as a large moo that lasted several seconds come from the thick brush (about maybe 20 yards away). Raised on a farm, I know what cows sound like and it was not a cow.

It was a very loud, low yell that went to a higher pitch, but lasted what seemed like 10 seconds each. Being scared out of our minds, we jumped behind a log and drew our rifles towards the area.

Whatever it was sounded like it was coming right at us. It was breaking limbs, making loud thumps as it walked, it was not stealth at all. Then just like that, it stopped, but we could not see anything.

Obviously we didn’t stick around either. This is an annual hunting town for our family, but we never went that deep into the forest since that trip.

Two Men Find Bigfoot Tracks In The Snow At Index Washington

Date:  December 1997
Time:  Approx: 9:00 p.m.

I really don’t remember the circumstances, but a friend and I hooked up with a few local members of the BFRO.

We were interested in what research they were doing in the area, so we met up in Sultan, WA.

They said they were checking out a forest service road that apparently had a lot of recent activity. So we followed them up Forest Service Road #62. We got to the site and we started a small campfire.

We listened to the members discussing what they had learned of the location, and their own experience from visiting it a few days earlier. After a couple of hours we left.
A few days later my friend and I decided to go back up there ourselves. It was night with a little snow coming down. I only had a two-wheel drive truck, so we couldn’t get to the exact location where we were with the BFRO guys.

We were about a quarter of the way up a hill and could go no further. So we left the engine running, lights on so we could see, grabbed the video recorder and started walking up the road thinking that the top of that hill was our previous location.

We were approximately 100 yards from the vehicle and I noticed footprints in the snow! The footprints were coming down the side of road towards us and the turned and went straight up what I think was a logging skid opening.

It was probably a 45 degree embankment. I obviously took video of all of it. I got close up footage of them, and it was very clear that it had toes, heel and large. It was snowing so the tracks couldn’t have been very old.

On the other side of the road under the protection of a fir tree was more tracks, but were partially melted, which we assumed were a couple of days older, but we could not see any leading to those.

As we were looking and filming, we looked back at the truck with its lights glaring back at us, and we both got an eerie, unsettling feeling. I think we were so amazed and excited to find the prints, we didn’t realize that it was a scary situation at first. So we quickly got back in the vehicle and left.

Several months later hoping the snow had melted enough to re-visit the location, we went back. However, unfortunately the road was washed out at almost the beginning of the service road.

Anyways, there are my two encounters. I have no idea what I witnessed either time, but it is definitely something I will never forget. I moved to South Carolina three years ago and have been bigfoot free ever since.
