The Ghost In My Machine is an internet campfire of sorts; gather round, because it wants to tell you strange stories, take you on haunted road trips, and make you jump at unexpected noises. In its spare time, it enjoys warm blankets on cold nights, mugs of hot spiced wine, and imagining exactly what might be lurking in the closet.
