John Olsen is the creative force and author behind the marvellous Stranger Bridgerland series of books that will send a shiver down your spine, whatever your paranormal poison is.

The series has collected hundreds of first hand accounts of encounters with Ghosts, UFO’s, cryptids, time slips and much, much more.

In the latest book, Stranger World, John includes stories from around the world for the first time along with some closer to home and in this episode we have haunted students, an infamous ghost car, a close encounter with Bigfoot, haunted cleaning and a frightening encounter with a Wendigo.
