More on the Rendlesham Forest Controversy

 Dave Clarke digs deep with a new article on the 40th anniversary of the Rendlesham Forest affair of December 1980. Here's the link. A very interesting article!

The Vermont Monster Guide

 


Back in 2009, I reviewed a then new book, The Vermont Monster Guide. Well, there's a recent, updated version available right now, and I'll be reviewing it soon.

And here's the info from the publisher: 

"Though not widely acknowledged, the Green Mountain state is home to more winged wonders, wet weirdoes, and crypto creatures than any other state in the country. You probably know about Champ, the elusive monster of Lake Champlain. But what about Northfield's Pigman? And Richford's The Awful? Wherever you are in Vermont--in town or country, river or lake, land or sky--you're never far from the unknown. Or the unexpected.Joseph A. Citro, respected monster hunter, brings to light over sixty Vermonsters, many captured in exquisite, ghoulish detail by the pen, brush, and ink of artist Stephen R. Bissette. Designed as both a cautionary tale and handy field manual for those who dare, The Vermont Monster Guide will be of interest to natives and tourists, to young and old...though it may not be suitable for readers with fragile constitutions.WARNING: The Author, Illustrator and Publisher are NOT responsible for any unfortunate encounters that may result from the reading of this book."

If you are into UFOs in general and the Rendlesham Forest case of 1980 in particular, you are going to want the new book from John Burroughs, one of the key people in the incidents. 
 
John's book will be available next week. You can find it here.
 
In the meantime, here's where's you can find my review of the book.

A New Book on the Rendlesham Forest Affair: Coming Very Soon!

 

A couple of weeks ago, John Burroughs very generously gave me a copy of his forthcoming book on the Rendlesham Forest incident of December 1980. The book is going to open a lot of eyes!! Secret experiments, government programs, weirdness in the woods and much more! Its title Weaponisation of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. I'll be doing a big review soon...

"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!

"David Bendena is an actor and a musician based in the Midwest. His theatre experience over the past twenty years has taken him to stages throughout Chicago, Kansas City, and Michigan. 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

-- Whitley Strieber

"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."
