Glen Grant is Gone

One can't help but wonder if the obake (ghosts) that local author Glen Grant mythologized are welcoming him to the other side with a big party tonight. A penultimate storyteller, Grant — who quite literally had the trademark on "chicken skin" — died today at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer.

His store, "The Haunt" in Mo`ili`ili, became a hub of storytelling, featuring psychic and tarot readings, magical performances, poetry readings, and live music.

We all probably have at least one of his best-selling books, including "Obake: Ghost Stories of Hawai'i" and several in "The Chicken Skin Series," on our bookshelves. (I have two.)

And he was definitely the first man to call for the background on any of the multitude of ghost stories that fill local lore.

Here's the early obit in the Star-Bulletin, and a brief blurb in the Advertiser.

I regret having never taken one of his famous walking tours. I'm not even sure if I've ever met him. But when it comes to "talkstory," he was a giant.

I was quite surprised to hear of Mr. Grants passing today. Like you I never went on any of his tours and stuff, but I did hear him a few times on the radio. He was a guest a few times on Art Bell's Coast to Coast AM talk radio show, which was/is broadcast nationwide on more than 400 radio stations. He gave national audiences a taste of his ghost stories through those appearances.

I attended one of his story telling sessions when it was at Waikiki in the late 90's, it was pretty good.

It's sad that he passed away.

His books were a favorite gift to my sister; I think I've given her copies of each one as it came out.

I wish I'd taken one of those tours.

I have several of his books. The Obake Files and Obake Casebook actually did give me chickenskin, when I stayed up way late one night reading in an empty house on the big island.

I recognized Glen when I was in the Haunt once, but I didn't go up and say anything. I guess I should have.

Yesterday I just happened to be passing by "The Haunt", Glen Grant's store. There was a simple hand written note starting with "In Memorial Of..." I immediately whipped my cell phone out and called one of my friends. I asked when had he died "Today, I just saw it on the news". It was a strange coincidence that I just happened to be passing by his store, for I very seldomly ever pass by there.

So many of us grew up with his stories. I remember in intermediate the teacher read us stories on Halloween. During camp each year we would watch the Chiken Skin videos late at night, right before we went to bed (right, great camp counselors WE had), and for creative writing in learning how to tell a story we had to pick a Glen Grant story and tell it by candlelight in the most animated voice possible. Me and my partner picked "From Out of the Sea at Mokuleia".

Even further he left us a wonderful gem. One of the best Hawaii pictorials that I have ever seen, "Hawaii Looking Back" had pictures that otherwise we've only seen at the Bishop Museum.

I'm quite sad about htis. First thing I thought was to come here and write about it.

Like many of you I regret not going on one of his tours. I still remember the crisp morning that our Travel Industry Club came back from their trip to Oahu and gave our class their rundown on what they did. In my mind their walking tour with Glen Grant was something that I had to do one day. Me and my best friend would talk about it, and we would even stalk "The Haunt" everyonce in a while, being that their hours of operation were so...weird; we were never able to find the place open.

I'm sad. That's all I can say. I really am.

A few years back, I attended one of Grant's trolley tours through Honolulu. He was an entertaining speaker, and definately knew how to scare the heck out of people with his ghost stories.

During the tour to one destination to the other, he passed around photos that had ghost-like figures in them. The trolley then stopped at several locations throughout Honolulu, and Grant would give a history of what had happened at a specific place. A fun-filled evening with plenty of laughs and chicken skin.

Last year I stopped by the Haunt to find a gift for a friend, and Glen Grant was in the store. I bought a couple of his books, and he offered to autograph them for me. An approachable guy that always seemed to be quick to share a smile and talkstory. He will be missed.

Posted by ali on June 20, 2003 5:47 PM:

I've bought many of his books for my mother. She's a big fan of obake stories. I've seen him on PBS a few times and really appreciate that he took the time to share his stories in that special way that only he could. He's given such a gift to the living and to those beyond, too.

Posted by Sin on June 20, 2003 10:01 PM:

Though I went to college on the mainland, i did have the pleasure of taking a summer school course from grant at UH. It was he who explained so well to me about our own Hawaiian culture, and how it's based upon "reciprocal obligation". That our ancestors were generous to complete strangers because you never knew when you would be on the other side of the island, and have need of that same generosity, whether it's a place to sleep or food to eat. And at the end of the semester he practiced what he preached and catered food and bought beer with his own money for our class and we had a great time at the top floor of Tokai University.

A great guy, great teacher, and a great loss.

Posted by cheyne on June 21, 2003 4:23 PM:

I was informed about his passing yesterday as well. I was shocked and didn't believe my friend, the source.

I never met the guy but I guess Glen Grant was just one of those things that locals took for granted. Sure, it sounds funny to say it.

And I, just like everyone else, am now regretting not going on one of his famous haunted tours when I had the chance.

I wonder what will ever become of the Glen Grant legacy? I wonder if he secretly had an understudy who will now take the helm. I wonder if Glen Grant's home will now become a stop on the (hopefully proliferated) haunted tours?

Posted by Katrahrah on June 21, 2003 7:04 PM:

My favorite Glen Grant book is "McDougal's Honolulu Mysteries: Case Studies from the Life of a Honolulu Detective".

Posted by Marian Fu on June 28, 2003 9:53 AM:

I'm a mainlander from Georgia but I was introduced just recently to Glen Grant's Obake tales and feel that Hawaii and the world has just lost a very special person who had great insight into the Hawaiian culture. He has left a great legacy!

Posted by Shelley Attix on July 17, 2003 9:04 PM:

I heard only recently of Glen Grant's death. He had died the day I was boating through the bayous by New Orleans- also a place of spooky stuff. He contributed greatly to the field of folklore and local interpretation, via his pioneering "Interpret Hawai`i" program at Kapiolani Community College in Honolulu (now under the stewardship of Rev. Kaleo Patterson). HI is one of the only states to have such a program to train tourism guides, in the entire U.S! As a newcomer to Hawai`i in 1991, he was a great inspiration to another college teacher(LCC)and I now hope to emulate some of his efforts here on the Mainland (Gold Country, California is full of ghosts). I was happily able to attend many Chicken Skin tours in 1995, including a moonlight tour (w/ 1800's style lu`au and hula kahiko) in Wai`anae [Keone Nunes' halau]. Also, I`olani Palace, trolley tour, and his excellent slide show at the International theatre in Waikiki. He will be terribly missed by all who love Hawai`i/talk-story. Anyone wanting to advance his educational efforts, can make a donation to:

Glen Grant had such a great understanding of how local people love a great story. Be it an Obake story, mystery or just one that stirred up memories of old Hawaii his storytelling evoked vivid images in our minds. He put in writting many of the stories and events that we had heard as kids and reminded us of what it was like to grow up with, and be afraid of, ghost. When I think about it, many of those fears kept me from getting into a lot of trouble. After all, sometimes there is much to fear in the dark. Thanks Glen for all the great stories. Rod

Glen Grant's walking tour was an experience I wish everyone could have. His storytelling abilities were the best I've ever encountered and I've always recommended his tour to friends planning a trip to Hawaii. My family and I were truly shocked and saddened upon learning of his passing. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Hawaii has lost a wonderful treasure.

Posted by LAHELA on August 12, 2003 8:33 PM:

I know its been a while since the passing of the late, great Glen Grant, but I have to share my mana'o on his wonderful works. I agree with what everyone here said, Glen Grant was a great storyteller and he was very pono about the way he obtained and shared stories. I'm glad I finally I went on his walk tour (in downtown Honolul). It was definitely "chicken skin."

I do wonder who will take the steering wheel on his legacy for sharing ghost stories. The chicken-skin site is down and I'm not sure how long it would be down.

I wish I had the chance to visit "The Haunt" and said a few words to him.

I'm gonna miss him and his very insightful perspective on local and Hawaiian culture.

Posted by Albert on August 13, 2003 9:30 AM:

"The Haunt" is open again and there's a notice about an upcoming tour, so someone seems to be trying to carry on the work.

Posted by Camille on August 24, 2003 10:52 AM:

I can't belive one of my favorite aouthors is gone. I met him at the Haunt about 2 years ago when visitng my uncle in Hawaii. I got my books signed too.

I know is been a while since the passing of the late great Glen Grant. I am still trying to convince myself that Glen Grant is gone. I remember when the first chicken skins was broadcasted on tv. I was only 13 years old at the time. The show really did bring chicken skins to me back then, even today it still does even when I read his books. In memory of Glen Grant, I plan on going on a ghost tour this Halloween. If the tours will be available even after his passing. Glen Grant will be greatly missed.

Posted by Craig on September 10, 2003 5:25 PM:

I was just thinking about Glen today and his favorite saying about touching the sleeves of another person. I still remember the times he used to act out scenes in the books we were assigned to read in his American Studies class at UH--wonder what happened to all his teaching assistants. I would hear about him from time to time and even went on one if his history walks through downtown. I never thought he would have passed away so young and always thought I'd have a chance again to meet up with him. Glen touched many people in his life and I guess like his favorite saying we are all connected through him...

I first started working with Glen through my cousin Keone Nunes, when our halau worked consistantly with the Wai'anae Ghost Tour back in 1995. It wasn't until 1999 that i began to do The Ghosthunters Bus Tour for Glen, which in it's origin was the old trolley tour. In the 4 years that i've been doing this tour, i've learned so much from the man who was my mentor, my boss and my friend. The tours will continue with the same integrity and respect that Glen brought to them. My intent is to perpetuate the legacy and work which Glen has left to us and all the aloha and respect that goes with it. Mahalo Nui.

I heard this sad news the day before yesterday from my teacher. I was very shocked and felt very sad. He was my teacher at Hawaii Tokai University. He was very nice not only me but to other students. He took us many Hawaiian place and those place moved to me very much.

Posted by Jason Keli'i Lindo on November 3, 2003 8:59 PM:

Auwe, lu'ulu'u Hanalei i ka ua nui. My family always say this when we here of a death of someone we love or respect. I never met Glen Grant, but I sure did love his work and respected him for the respect he showed Hawaiian culture, religion and beliefs. I have lived on the Mainland for many years now, Glen's writings were a way to keep the magic of back home alive for me. i had hoped to take his tour when I went back home next May for my niece's wedding. I am so glad that someone is carry on with them. Lele i ke ala pono a ka malu 'o Po, e Glen Grant.

Posted by V on November 5, 2003 1:36 AM:

I heard of Glen's passing only recently, and when I did I couldn't stop crying. I knew him in a way very few have had the chance to, but parted ways with him several years ago and not on the best terms. I am sad that I wasn't there for him when he passed, and angry with him and with me for not having at least one more conversation before he died. All of my books are autographed by him. I have video of his TV performances, his audiocassette, and magazines with him featured in them. I walked the islands with him on personal tours several times. I even started writing a book with him a very long time ago. I loved him, not as well as I should have, but I did. He was there for me personally at a time of terrible chaos in my life. As a storyteller, he was without rival. I never visited the Haunt, but I am very happy that he built it because he had spoken of putting something like that together often. I imagine it made him very happy. He and I had planned to go to MT. Osore together once upon a time, and I think that someday I'll make that trip for him now. He was working on a follow up to the inugami story. He told the story to me and let me help develop it, and I wonder if someone has his written version and will publish it now. I cannot explain the grief I have over his passing, especially since I have learned about it so many months afterwards. I guess I just want to say Glen was one of a kind, special, and a brilliant storyteller. He was a modern day Lafcadio Hearn. A man of great passion, intellect, and kindness. I miss him. I love him. I'm also desperately sorry I wasn't there for him at the end, and now there is nowhere to express my grief but here. I still dream about him, even as I did tonight, which is what led me here to say these words.

Aloha Glen,

Posted by Gary Rhyne on December 14, 2003 8:42 PM:

I only learned of Glen Grant's death last month. I have been back on the mainland for two years and did not hear the news.

I had the good fortune of taking one of his walking tours in 2000. It was everything I expected. I always planned to do another. I did not know Mr. Grant personally, but like all of you, I was touched by his love of Hawaii, his passion for a good story and his understanding of the true magic of the isles. We should all be so lucky to find our place in the world, as he did.

Thanks Glen

Posted by Don Bailey on December 17, 2003 8:06 AM:

Just learned of Glen's passing yesterday while doing a search for more Chicken Skin books. Very sad.

Glen's books have helped educate this poor ignorant "mainlander" about much of Hawai'i's history, culture and custom in an entertaining fashion. On every visit to the islands I've always made sure to take along one of his books. I'm very sad to think there won't be any new ones.

Glen, I hope you've joined the islands' spirit ancestors and are having a great time "talking story" with them.

Posted by Sabrina on January 6, 2004 1:49 AM:

I know it has been awhile since Glen's passing but I just happened to come upon this page and would like to share.

To make a long story short, I met him at Sea Life Park after he shared his stories for their scream life park. I had written him a letter previous to this to let him know that his books had given me the inspiration to start writing again. I was so pleased when he signed my book and knew who I was from my letter. After that I met with him several times and went on the walking tour.

When the Haunt opened I took every chance I could to go in hoping he would be in just to talk story for alittle while. Eventually he had started the Ghost Hunter's Society which I joined. In the months before he passed I had been busy with my home life so had not been in to the Haunt in quite some time. My mother had called me the day he passed to let me know what had happened. I had just picked my husband up from the airport and was driving over the H-3 when she called. I started crying and told my husband what had happened. I considered him and inspiration and a friend.

Walking into the Haunt isn't the same. I still expect to see him smiling behind the counter waiting to talk story. He will be greatly missed.

Well I had just went on the Obake Tour this past weekend on friday night. It was the best. I just found out about Glen Grant I never knew he died. Thats how much I know about this kind of things. I don't like reading about them and or knowing of them. Well Lopaka was a great tour guide. I really liked him. Bye now

I ws a friend of Glen while at Hamilton H.Sl. Los Angeles, 1961-1964. I had not heard from him for nearly 40 years. Today I spotted him on the History channel. Five minutes later I started looking up his books on the internet and found out that he had died last summer. To his family, my sincerest regrets. I was deeply saddened.

Posted by dean on April 13, 2004 4:46 PM:

My sisters and I had always been fans of Glen's books. Whenever we'd go back home and visit family, we'd always say, "let's go on the ghostwalk tour," but always seemed to put it off. We were like, "always get time, yeah?" About half a year before he died, I finally called to make reservations for the tour, but it was booked solid for months. We stopped by The Haunt anyway, just to buy books, and I mentioned in passing to the lady behind the counter that we lived on the Mainland and that we tried to go on the tour but it was booked. She was so nice, she was like, "no worry, I'll make it so you can go." I didn't want her to get in trouble, but she just laughed at me. Looking back on it now, we were so lucky as it was probably one of his last tours he did. He told amazing stories which I had never heard before and remember vividly to this day. Glen Grant was an amazing storyteller and could literally paint pictures with his words. His knowledge of Hawai`i's stories and legends was immense, and his passing is a deep loss to the community. I'm so grateful to the nice lady who allowed us to go, and cherish the memory of that tour. It was spooky and yet funny, too. When we were in the graveyard at Kawaiaha`o church, he would say how bachi it was to step on a grave, then say, "oh yeah, by the way, there's no more tombstones for each person buried here, so no need stand on the path as you're probably standing on someone anyway..." lol Thank you, Glen Grant, for all the years of enjoyment, education, and chicken skin you gave us. You will be, and still are, greatly missed.

I grew up reading glen grants book and also went on my own venture of his trails to see if I can get glimpse of the super natural. Also hung out at spots until I start getting chicken skin and something is telling me its time to leave. Also wish that I went on one of his tours. If any one can email me location of his stores and how i can purchase a video please email me gqsmooth_808@yahoo.com

Posted by traci kato-kiriyama on August 8, 2004 6:36 PM:

There was a program called "Multiculturalism in Hawai'i" that started in 1992 where students from California and Hawai'i gathered for a summer at UH Manoa. Us "katonks" were introduced to Glen, the primary UH professor for the program, and we all loved him instantly and deeply. Beyond being an incredible teacher and storyteller who knew exactly how to deliver us to screaming fits, he was someone who really cared about all of us. He wanted everyone to understand the complexity and beauty of Hawai'i's culture, history, people and struggle. He was the unassuming narrator for our experiences in learning what is truly behind "aloha." He was the one who insisted we go to spots well off the tourist-map and introduced us to many wonderful characters who invest their joy and passion in their beloved home. I last saw Glen a few years ago and he looked great as always, and last heard from him over email when he gave me some advice regarding a friendly ghost who visited my partner's apartment. I can't believe I didn't know until just now of his passing - and i tearfully smile thinking about how robust his laughter must be as he sits around with the spirits who've been waiting for him to come talk story with them.

Posted by kiana on August 19, 2004 9:53 PM:

in 1994/1995 i attended the storytelling Glen did at the old Waikiki theatre and thoroughly enjoyed Glen Grant's storytelling. i remember one story in particular about a japanese sword that hung in the living room of a family and when a picture was taken, the samurai who so long ago owned the sword was revealed in the picture and Glen's face (as he showed what the samurai looked like as he lurched over the family in the picture) is still vivid in my memory. he really knew how to tell a story! i tried to sign up for a walking tour last summer when i went home to visit and was saddened and disappointed to hear of his passing. i look forward though to see Lopaka carry on in Glen's path next time i return home.
my sincerest regards to the 'ohana and friends of Glen Grant

I am so sorry to hear of Glen Grant's passing. In reading his books he spoke of places of my childhood and stories that I remember. Having grown up in Nuuanu some of his stories hit close to home. Hawaii has lost a great writer of a subculture that I feel has diminished.

Posted by Betty on September 10, 2004 4:21 AM:

I am so sorry to hear of Glens passing. I am from Maine and have visited Hawai'i 14 times over the past few years. I met Glen on several occasions, and enjoyed the ghost tours he led. He always made a person feel like they'd been friends forever. One of the worlds greatest story tellers and he is greatly missed.

Posted by Edwin Ushiro on October 4, 2004 10:37 PM:

Glen Grant has left an everlasting impression on my life. I was introduced to his tours during my high school days. I was so blown away! Nobody has ever gave me so much "chicken skin" and enhanced my interest in the supernatural than this man did. Later in my high school years as a inspirational tool I would make sure I won every art competition to visit Oahu and jump on a chance to take a ghost tour. Today, I work in Los Angeles, CA as a Production Designer on feature films and television series. Not a day goes by that I use the inspiration Glen has given me and try to pass along some "chicken skin." Thank you very much Dr. Glen Grant wherever you are.

Posted by Dawn on December 6, 2004 8:51 PM:

I met Gleen several years ago in a chat room. We got to talking online and became quite good friends taking our conversations to ICQ and sharing files and stories. When i was down on my luck he sent me a package in the mail containing 2 pound os kona coffee, The Obake files book and several hundred dollars with a note saying. It will get better. For along time we would call each other back and forth and just shoot the crap laughing and telling stories. Then all the sudden he wasnt there anymore. I left him messages on icq and yahoo and email and never got a reply . I wondered what had happened and feared the worst. A few months ago i met someone else from hawaii on chat and he told me Glenn had passed last year. I was floored. I went to icq and left him a long letter telling him i was so sad and wondering why he had never mentioned the cancer to me. I sympathize with everyone here in saying once you met him, talked to him youd never forget him. He was truely special in a way thats rare and hard to find anymore in people. Someone who cared in his heart for humanity and could make a friend of you that easily as in a chat room where everyone is wary and skeptical. Glenn ...i say now to you. You will never be forgotten in my heart. Rest easy and enjoy your rewards in heaven. Your friend, Dawn

Mr. Grant was a wonderful storyteller, but more than that, a wonderful person. I first went on one of his walking tours (The Massie Case) for my high school AP English class. I was fortune enough to have attended two of his walking ghost tours of Downtown Honolulu as well as his Ghost Bus Tour.
I have many of his books - both myself and my fiancee enjoy them (even though we get scared *#@!less).
He remains the most honest and down-to-earth person I have ever met. I hope everyone will strive to be more like him - honest, talented, humble and just plain "Local Style."
I hope somewhere out there, he knows that so many of us remember him fondly.

So sorry to hear that Glen passed away - I've been on 2 of his walking tours - nice guy, always taking time to talk to you and listen - entertaining story teller too, as well as a self-professed "chicken" when it came to ghosts! I just decided to Google him, since I haven't I haven't seen his site up in some time...

Posted by MAUREEN on February 13, 2006 10:55 PM:

Does anyone continue the ghost tours, now that the Haunt is closed. I hope so.

Posted by Don McCaleb on February 16, 2006 5:37 PM:

My Dad was a great fan of Glen Grant - we participated in his Massey Trial event and went on his Ghost Tour. Both were very enjoyable! I was returning to Honolulu & was looking up Glen's new adventures to participate in & am truly sorry to find out about his passing! He preceeded my Dad's passing by 7 weeks. Both were great storytellers!

Posted by KieleMoani on April 14, 2006 1:45 PM:

Chicken Skin still does tours; 808-943-0371.
Last time I spoke with them, they hold them once a month on Friday evenings. I believe the cost is only $15? I still have yet to experience it myself and am not sure who leads it now.
While Rick Carroll has apparently acquired the new role as Hawai'i's metaphysical spokesperson with his Spooky Tales, nobody can fill the absence that Glen has left in his passing. He is truly a legend in his contributions to Hawai'ian history and cultural identity.
