My friend, the writer, brought over a book they found at a used bookstore. Knowing my recent interest in Psychics and Ghosts, they thought I would find this old book interesting.
And, I did.
Mainly because neither Denver nor London vanished and the world wasn’t extinguished by a giant black snake. (Although some might argue that point).
What I found fascinating was the back-story about the entertainer, who flourished during the 1950-60s. He was a friend and one of the personal psychics of Mae West (and I would be too), and an “actor” in three of Ed Wood movies, including the ghostly “Night of the Ghouls” and “Orgy of the Dead.” Ed Wood has something of a cult following these days, but Criswell has his own website (which I found both amusing and informative).
I also found it personally fascinating Criswell’ s wife, Halo, had a poodle named Buttercup, whom she believed was her cousin, Thomas.reincarnated
I don’t know if Buttercup had any psychic skills passed down from Thomas or gathered on her own. But I am a great believer in the intuitive and psychic skills of dogs – and other animals. One day, I’ll write a blog about my dog, Mutt, and his uncanny sixth or maybe even, seventh sense, and how he discovered the Apparitions before I did.
