I had the privilege of writing for Dirge Magazine!

I talk about ectoplasm, the white stuff that leaked out of mediums during seances. I specifically explore how this otherworldly substance baffled the men of science and medicine, and how it was created by the sly women of Spiritualism.

I learned a lot from the editors of Dirge writing this piece. I hope you enjoy it!
