Welcome to the most popular section of, the true stories archives. I have been maintaining this page in one form or another since 1993 (before the World Wide Web was around, the stories were available via FTP). The majority of the stories you will see here are from reader submissions, with the remaining tales from the early years of the alt.folklore.ghost-stories newsgroup.

THIS PAGE IS INTERACTIVE! You can create an account to review and rate the stories, or even add your own tales to the archives!
