Phantom Hounds, Demon Dogs and Sherlock Holmes
If you're into some of the more Fortean aspects of Cryptozoology, you won't want to miss this!
Tim Beckley has just published a new book titled Hounds of the Baskervilles.
It's basically a combination of (A) the original Sherlock Holmes novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles; (B) witness reports of real-life encounters with blazing, red-eyed hounds of the pararnormal kind; and (C) various articles from researchers of the Phantom Black Dog variety.
Not only that, the book is massively and richly illustrated with excellent old and atmospheric artwork.
I have a lengthy article in the book, which is an extensive look from me at the history of the Black Dog in the UK, with numerous, little-known case files examined, many of which extend right up to well into the 20th Century.
