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.

    The Hazards of Ufology Part-1

    Over at Mysterious Universe, I have a new article on the above-subject: The hazards of Ufology. It begins as follows:

    Back in 2016, I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled “UFOs: Don’t Let Them Rule Your Life.” To a significant degree, the article was focused on the controversial “11:11 phenomenon” and a guy who was immersed in it to such a degree that he was practically controlled by it. You can find the article at this link. That same article provoked a fair amount of comments, something that didn’t surprise me at all. Today, I thought I would expand on this issue of how people really do become affected by the UFO subject – and not in a positive way. I don’t know why, but on more than a few occasions I have seen people enter Ufology sane, rational and normal, only to eventually plunge into states of paranoia, fear, isolation and eccentricity. So, in that sense, today’s article is very much a warning to one and all. I should stress that this radical change of character doesn’t happen to a huge degree (as far as I can tell). On more than a few occasions, however, I have seen something close to madness set in – and sometimes set in quickly. With that all said, let us now take a look at the first of three examples of how the UFO subject – at times – doesn’t just alter lives, but can come close to destroying lives, too.

    Ray Boeche and the Rendlesham Forest Affair...


     
    Great praise for my new book, The Rendlesham Forest UFO Conspiracy, from Ray Boeche. Ray was one of the early US researchers of the case back in the 1980s. And he's someone I interviewed extensively for my book.

    A Hot Hooker, a Faked Alien Abduction, and a UFO Event That Was a Hoax

    That's the subject of my latest article. It starts like this:

    Today, things get very controversial: Antonio Villas Boas was a young Brazilian man who claimed to have had crazy sex, in late 1957, with a wild babe from another world. That is, after having been abducted and practically thrown into a UFO. The story, however, may not have been all it seemed to be. In fact, it may have been something even stranger. It was in the final years of the 1970s that UFO researcher Rich Reynolds engaged in correspondence with a man by the name of Bosco Nedelcovic. He - Nedelcovic - had secret connections to the domain of espionage and intelligence, and spent time working in South America. Nedelcovic asserted that the Villas Boas incident was far from being what it seemed to be. He told Rich something incredible: that Villas Boas was nothing less than the unwitting player in a new and bizarre experiment. Nedelcovic explained: the UFO that Villas Boas saw over his family’s property was actually a helicopter. Not only that, Villas Boas was supposedly hit by something mind-altering that quickly placed him into an altered state, after the pilot of the helicopter flew right over him and at a low level. As for the girl from the stars, she was said to have really been a hooker, a girl hired to take Villas Boas on the closest encounter of all. But, said Nedelcovic, it was all a ruse: a mind-bending event designed to fabricate a UFO incident.

    Withdrawn Traces: Richey Manic and his Mysterious Disappearance


    If, like me, you're a fan of the Welsh band, the Manic Street Preachers, you'll want to read this book: Withdrawn Traces: Searching for the Truth About Richey Manic. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time (I finished it last week). And I'll soon be reviewing it.

    Here's the publisher's info on the book:

    • On 1 February 1995, Richey Edwards, guitarist of the Manic Street Preachers, went missing at the age of 27. On the eve of a promotional trip to America, he vanished from his London hotel room, his car later discovered near the Severn Bridge, a notorious suicide spot.
    • Over two decades later, Richey’s disappearance remains one of the most moving, mysterious and unresolved episodes in recent pop culture history.
    • For those with a basic grasp of the facts, Richey's suicide seems obvious and undeniable. However, a closer investigation of his actions in the weeks and months before his disappearance just don’t add up, and until now few have dared to ask the important questions.
    • Withdrawn Traces is the first book written with the co-operation of the Edwards family, testimony from Richey’s closest friends and unprecedented and exclusive access to Richey’s personal archive.
      In a compelling real-time narrative, the authors examine fresh evidence, uncover overlooked details, profile Richey's state of mind, and brings us closer than ever before to the truth.

    My New Rendlesham Forest Book: "Even more disturbing than could be imagined"



    At Mysterious Universe, Aaron Wright says:

    "This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Rendlesham Forest incident and the frightening events surrounding that night remain enshrouded in a fog of mystery. Nick Redfern however has a new theory on what occurred and its refreshingly compelling while being even more disturbing than could be imagined."
