"The Martians" - Three Number 1's

 



https://www.amazon.com/Martians-Evidence-Life-Red-Planet/dp/1632651769/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=nick+redfern&qid=1603409376&s=books&sr=1-1

Still Vaping!

 

Well, I never thought I would see a bunch of new songs from The Vapors! Most people remember them for "Turning Japanese." But, their first album, "New Clear Days," is packed with great, guitar-driven, singalong, new-wave songs. "Their best (in my opinion) from that album: "News at Ten."
 
I didn't realize the guys were really young when "Turning Japanese" hit the stores. Anyway, they've been back for a while, but they now have 12 new songs. And, amazingly, Dave Fenton's voice is exactly the same as it was! Not to be missed!

Weird questions on the Radio...

 

I did a pre-record radio show / interview this morning on my new book, The Martians which turned out to be more about music, and specifically about my favorite band, the Ramones. 
 
Then, for some odd reasons, the host asked if I had kids. I said "No, I do not have kids." They are hassles, pains in the neck, and get in the way, particularly at the weekends. 
 
And that's why I had a vasectomy in my early 30s (I know: too much information LOL). That way, there's zero chance of someone knocking on the door 9 months later with some screaming brat in their arms 🙂
 

But if I did have kids they would have to be named Johnny and Ramona. What else could it be? 🙂

"The Martians" on CD...

 

Coming very soon is a boxed CD version of my new book, The Martians. Here's the info on the guy (David Bendena) who is doing the job that I would not have the patience to do: read the whole book out loud for the recording! Thanks, David!

He is very proud to be a member of the Actors Equity Association and to be a Resident Artist with the Purple Rose Theatre Company."

Whitley Strieber and "The Martians"

 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

"The Martians" - A Summary of the Book


The publicity info for my new book, The Martians: Evidence of Life on the Red Planet (Red Wheel/ Weiser, LLC): it reads like this...

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.


"The Martians" - The Latest News

 The U.K.'s Sun newspaper highlights my new book, The Martians: Evidence of Life on the Red Planet.

Here's what they have to say...



RIP, Scott Marlowe, Cryptozoologist

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.

Good Memories!

 

The passing of Diana Rigg made me think of another great actress who is no longer with us anymore, Ingrid Pitt - who was not only super hot but also a very cool woman. I know that, because I met her once, in 1998. 
 
I was promoting my first book A Covert Agenda in London and she was promoting her then new book too: Ingrid Pitt's Bedside Companion for Vampire Lovers, which is a far better title than my book! LOL! I think we were on the James Whale radio show, but I may be wrong. 
 
Anyway, I got to hang out in the green-room with Ingrid, who was very chatty, flirty, laid back and great fun. We had about 20 minutes talking about those old Hammer films she was in, and the 1973 original of The Wicker Man. Great memories! 🙂

Richey Edwards: When a Rock Star Goes Missing...and Stays Missing


There's a new article from me titled "Rock Star Richey Manic and His Mysterious 1995 Disappearance: A Book Reviewed." And here's how it begins: 

"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."

Here's the link to the full article...

Monsters of the Deep: My New Book, August 4


On August 4, my new book, Monsters of the Deep, will be published. If you're a fan of Cryptozoology, check it out!

And here's the info from the publisher, Visible Ink Press:

A deep dive into the undersea netherworld of sea serpents, lake monsters, surviving dinosaurs, genetically altered mutants, and legendary aquatic creatures.
  Water takes up 70 percent of Earth’s surface, with countless lakes, rivers, ponds, streams, seas and oceans covering much of the land, but what lurks beneath the water? For centuries, sightings have been made of huge, marauding monsters swimming the world’s oceans and lakes. They include Scotland’s legendary Loch Ness Monster; the United States’ equivalent, Champ, of Lake Champlain; and Canada’s long-necked denizen of the deep known as Ogopogo. These, and many more, famous monsters of the world below us also include giant squid, massive octopi, and even the fabled Kraken and the fabled mermaids of millennia long-gone. Possibly, too, there survive populations of marine reptiles that were assumed to have gone extinct millions of years ago, in the Jurassic period, such as the plesiosaur.

Whether scaly or slithery, massive prehistoric dinosaurs or mutant serpents, Monsters of the Deep catalogs nearly 100 accounts of eels, alligators, reptiles, giant squids, snakes, worms, deadly fish, and cold-blooded creatures of all manner and ilk. It reveals the astonishing extent to which lake monsters and sea serpents have surfaced throughout history to terrify, perplex, and amaze those who have crossed paths with these monsters of the unknown.

Master storyteller, established author, and respected expert on the unexplained and paranormal Nick Redfern sifts through the historical record, first-person accounts, and unearthed government files on lake monsters and sea serpents to tell of encounters with a variety of beasts, including ...

  • Cheever Felch’s 19th-century account of the massive Gloucester, New England, Sea Serpent
  • The brontosaurus-like Mokele-Mbembe of the Congo
  • The supernatural Bunyip, a monster that lurks within the creeks, lagoons, and swamps of Australia that has been known to the Aboriginal people for centuries
  • The disputed claims of Teddy May, former Commissioner of Sewers in New York, of alligators roaming the sewers of the city
  • The monster-sized fish in the River Nene, in the Fens, Cambridgeshire, England
  • Modern mutants genetically altered by pollution
  • And many more!
    This richly researched reference overflows with fascinating information to make you think about―and reconsider―dipping your toes into water. With more than 120 photos and graphics, this tome is nicely illustrated. Monsters of the Deep also includes a helpful bibliography and an extensive index, adding to its usefulness.

    Sinister Swamps: The New Book From Lyle Blackburn

     
    Check out the new book from my good mate, Lyle Blackburn: Sinister Swamps: Monsters and Mysteries from the Mire. As the publicity for the book states:

    "When it comes to iconic landscapes, nothing can rival the ominous allure of a swamp. Within these haunting domains of moss-draped trees and brackish waters lurks some of nature’s finest work, along with some of the most compelling mysteries and spooky legends the world has ever known. From reports of unknown beasts, ghostly figures, and spook lights to tales of missing persons, lost planes, and witches, swamps inevitably ooze with intrigue as they offer a glimpse into a primordial past that may well reflect our very origin. For the last decade, noted author and adventurer Lyle Blackburn has delved into the world of swamps, collecting reports of strange phenomena and boating through their bubbling backwaters to seek the truth behind the fascinating tales. Do monsters, ghosts, and other bizarre entities truly exist in these unique and primitive regions? Find out by joining Blackburn's eerie exploration as he parts the mossy curtains to expose the sinister secrets within some of North America’s most notorious swamplands."

    Not to be missed! I'll be doing a full review as soon as I've finished reading it.
