Hello, I am Robert G. Male.
Welcome to WraithStop. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.
Furthermore these are links that I want to keep track of because they have given me either ideas or some other form of
inspiration for my writing. Links are listed in order lowest to highest both in the date they are given and the order
in which they appear (meaning: read them from the bottom up for a certain day's list). Some of these sites may require
you to sign up for free. Without further ado, the links...

3) Darvaz: The Door to Hell
Tags: caves, Centralia, drilling, geology, passageway, poison, Russia, Silent Hill, underworld.
- What is not to like about this location? Lots of fodder to be had in places like this. It is
of course very reminiscent of Centralia a.k.a. Silent Hill. It's very interesting and kind of spooky how these things burn for
decades. The whole door thing adds another dimension to the story ideas that can be derived from this place.
2) Scary Music Is Scarier With Your Eyes Shut
Tags: brain, dark, disease, fear, music, neuroscience, research, scary, unknown.
- I asked myself is this linked article for real use in some kind of story or is it only an
interesting factoid? It is true anything might spark an idea, but how would you integrate sound being more frightening with closed
eyes that isn't already done? Closed eyes or darkness lets the imagination run wild when other senses are aware of stimuli. The
part about the areas of the brain that are involved in the difference is interesting though, as is the idea this knowledge can be
used in the treatment of disease.
1) When 'Mad Men' Meets Augmented Reality
- It's one thing to choose your own reality and what that entails, but what happens
when someone else forces their version of the world on you, literally. Certainly there is even some horror to stepping
away from the real world. While from a technical standpoint horror might come from mass enslavement and forced implants
to provide the enforced augmented reality, it is the singular, more personal applications that can be the most
chilling. Consider a more subtle approach such as an augmented reality haunting or constant mind warping companions.
