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...

Mystery of Argleton, the 'Google' town that only exists online
alternate reality game, augmented reality, lure, mystery, reality, technology, thought forms, trap.
- This is cool and so full of potential. It even mentions the idea of a town in
an alternate universe and one built or made real by the minds of people who imagine it into existance piece by
piece, both excellent jumping points. The idea of a digital trap has its own potential, or using it as part of a
physical trap, luring people there to horrible ends, only made worse by the real businesses, etc. listed there but
existing closeby instead. There is also the virtual town idea for the likes of Second Life and the story ideas that
could be written about from that if not experienced online. Or there could be stories or experiences at that physical
location but using augmented reality to "create" the town.

That Nearly Scared Me to Death! Let's Do It Again
brain, fear, horror, neurochemistry, neuroscience, psychology, scary, science.
- The age old horror fan's question, why do we like the scary. The science bit is
interesting about the parts of the brain involved and the collision of the fear and pleasure response in those areas.
I'm more interested in the unanswered question of why some people feel the fake danger response much more actuely and
for longer. They have to go and sour things by disparaging the people who enjoy a scare--from the psychologists
actually, not the scientists looking at how it all quantifiably works.
