Bucks County Resident Explores The Strange in The Spectrum

Here is a recent article I did for both Bucks Happening and Montco Happening


Bucks County Resident Justin Bamforth Explores “The Highly Strange” in His New Book, The Spectrum

By Michelle Reese

Justin Bamforth’s book The Spectrum was released in August 2018.

Do ghosts, aliens and psychic phenomena all share a common source? Bucks County resident and author Justin Bamforth explores this question in his recently published book The Spectrum: Glimpses of the Paranormal and Encounters with the Strange. Doppelgangers, Men in Black, UFOs, spirits … Justin covers these topics and more through exclusive interviews, case studies and key testimony.

Unlike some books dealing with the paranormal, The Spectrum manages to engage readers’ curiosity without being TOO out there and hard to follow. It’s written with a conversational tone, so you feel as if you’re sitting with Justin himself. Yet, it has enough research behind it that you understand how Justin’s years of studying these topics have helped him develop this book – and how it has affected his life!

With Halloween just around the corner, it seemed like an appropriate time to talk to Justin about the book and these spooky topics.

Hot on the Trail of the Men in Black & Other Non-Human Entities

“Hot on the Trail of the Men in Black & Other Non-Human Entities” is the name of this lecture. In it, I’ll be revealing for the first time some of my findings while working on my book “The Spectrum: Glimpses of the Paranormal and Encounters with the Strange.”

Together, we will dive into little-known and seldom explored aspects of high strangeness—including encounters with the Men in Black, phantom photographers, strange stalkers, mysterious phone calls, robotic entities, hairless clones, doppelgängers, and other non-human entities galore!

Join me for an exciting evening of ghosts, UFOs, and other weirdness at the Old Town Pub on Tuesday, October 2nd at 7:00 pm. The official event page can be found here. This lecture includes dinner but space is only limited to 50 people!

The Effects of Living in a Haunted House

When I first began the Normal Paranormal website several years ago, I put the call out to see if anyone wanted to contribute articles to it. The response was almost nonexistent. Yet, there was one person out there who had taken an interest.

His name was “Lawrence Miller” and he had lived in a haunted house.

Lawrence told me how it practically destroyed his life and left a negative impact on his family. Although tragic, his account was at the same time important, because it put in perspective the reality of this that ghost hunters often forget.

The paranormal isn’t fun for everyone.

Early Testimony is Key in Paranormal Reporting

The ability of the human mind to recollect events can be a powerful tool. It is also an inevitably faulty tool. This is why it’s critical for the investigator of high strangeness to acquire and document eyewitness testimony early on. The witness (and even the investigator) can become easily influenced by internal and external forces that alter the initial observation over time.

An example of this can be found in the varied descriptions of the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant, WV from 1966-67.

People still don’t know about AATIP

Despite what most in the UFO field would like to believe, there is still a large group unfamiliar with AATIP—the U.S. government’s recently revealed UFO program. This was the main subject at this year’s 2018 MUFON International Symposium. For those of you who are part of that group, here is a link to catch you up to speed on the DoD’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.

And for those of you who ARE familiar, here’s a more recent article just for you. Yes you, my fellow UFO nut. Continue reading People still don’t know about AATIP
