Break out the ghost stories
Carnivalesque No IX is up at Alun's blog, Archaeoastronomy. And as well as the scheduled focus on the ancient and medieval worlds - which includes a rapping Chaucer (Good-bye, P. Diddy!) and Leif Ericson 's Powerpoint slides - this is a double bonus issue, with a Halloween section stretch well into the early modern, featuring as scary a collection of ghost, ghouls and demons as you'd want prancing across your pixels.
