A good endorsement for my new book, The Martians from Whitley Strieber...
“The Martians opens a door into a possibility that most would reject as impossible. But Nick Redfern in this provocative and exciting book makes a startling case for there being life on Mars—and, in fact, for the whole history of Mars being very, very different from what we have supposed. A wonderful adventure and a very exciting story!”—Whitley Strieber, #1 New York Times bestselling author, Communion
-- Whitley Strieber
The Martians is an in-depth study of the theory that Mars was once a world that teemed with life. Perhaps, even, life not too dissimilar to ours. Incredibly, the Martians may still be there. Alive. The questions that this book asks and answers include the following: • What kind of society did the Martians have? • What caused their world to become harsh and desert-like? • Did global warming or nuclear war ensure the extinction of the Martians? • Are Martian artifacts strewn about the surface, just waiting to be found by the likes of NASA? • Has NASA already found such evidence, but chosen to withhold such monumental finds from the public and the media? • Could some form of the Martians still exist, deeply below the surface of the planet, in secure installations that allow them to ensure their civilization continues? • What do we know about the Martian environment, its atmosphere, and its landscape?The Martians explores the CIA's top-secret search for the Martians, multiple photos of strange anomalies, and the latest revelations about the environment and water on Mars. And most tantalizing of all: Did an ailing Martian race come to Earth in past eons and were they confused with gods? The questions concerning life on Mars?then and now?are many. The answers are astounding.
Sad news about the passing of Scott Marlowe, Cryptozoologist. Scott was a cool, good guy. He will be missed and my thoughts are with his family and friends. Here's a photo from the Mothman gig in 2016 at Point Pleasant, with (Left to right) Denise Faye, Ken Gerhard, Scott's son, and Scott himself. A great evening. RIP, mate.
"Sara Hawys Roberts’ Withdrawn Traces is, without a doubt, one of the best, and most absorbing, books I’ve read in a very long time. It tells the story of a man born Richard James Edwards in Pontypool, South Wales in 1967. In the 1990s Richard became famous as both Richey Edwards and Richey Manic. He was one quarter of one of Wales’ most successful rock bands, The Manic Street Preachers. In 1995, things changed. That’s when – depending on your own perspective – Richey took his life or carefully staged a suicide and made a new life for himself. Either way, he vanished. Since then, numerous words have been written about Richey. Withdrawn Traces sets the record straight. And, not only that, the book has the support of Richey’s sister, Rachel. The band has been in existence since 1986, now as a trio. As you might guess, over a period of more than thirty years their guitar-driven music has gone through a few changes and styles. For me, their biggest and best moment was the 1992 album, Generation Terrorists. Imagine a combination of The Sex Pistols, The Clash, maybe a bit of Hanoi Rocks, and the Michael Monroe band, and you’ll get the picture."
Fun memories: hanging out with good friends Sandra Martin (writer/publisher) and out of camera is my agent Lisa Hagan. The other guy is actor Roy Thinnes, star of the 1960s UFO/sci-fi TV show, "The Invaders." It was a cool day!
