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.

Nick Redfern however has a new theory on what occurred and its refreshingly compelling while being even more disturbing than could be imagined."

A New Article From Me Today...

The subject: Supernatural Creatures and the Rules and Regulations They Have to Abide by...

The Rendlesham Forest UFO Conspiracy: My New Book, Available Now


Over the years, I've written a number of controversial books, but my new one (available from today) is without doubt the most controversial of all. Its title: The Rendlesham Forest UFO Conspiracy: A Close Encounter Exposed as a Top Secret Government Experiment. Here's the link:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1945962283/ref=sr_1_3…


Here's the info on the book from the publisher, Lisa Hagan Books...

  • "The object was hovering on legs”
  • “Something being tested in the area”
  • “A world of trouble”
  • “Minds were manipulated”

In the final days of December 1980, strange encounters and bizarre incidents occurred in the heart of Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. Based upon their personal encounters, many of the military personnel who were present at the time believed that something extraterrestrial came down in those dark woods. What if, however, there was another explanation for what happened four decades ago?
What if that explanation, if revealed, proved to be even more controversial than the theory that aliens arrived from a faraway world? The ramifications for the field of Ufology would be immense.

In his new, sensational book, Nick Redfern reveals that one of the most famous UFO cases of all time was really a series of top secret experiments using holograms, mind-control programs, deception, disinformation, conspiracies and cover-ups. The shocking truth of a forty-year-old mystery is now revealed.

BIO
Nick Redfern is the author of more than 60 books. They include Flying Saucers from the Kremlin; The Roswell UFO Conspiracy; Women in Black; Men in Black; Nessie; Chupacabra Road Trip; The Black Diary; and 365 Days of UFOs. Nick has appeared on many TV shows, including the National Geographic Channel’s Paranatural; the SyFy Channel’s Proof Positive; and the Travel Channel’s In Search of Monsters.

Storms Around the Dallas Area!


This is what I was woken up by this morning around 5:00 AM: a major storm, thunder, lightning etc. As my car doesn't have a covered area at the apartment blocks, I was sure the car was fucked. But, luckily, I got away. Not seen hail like that size here for a long time!

The Two Types of Men in Black: One Human and One Non-Human



Over at Rich Reynolds' blog - UFO Conjectures - you can find a new article from me. It is focused on the two different kinds of Men in Black that people report.

There are those MIB who look like agents of government, and there are those who are pale-faced, cadaverous creatures that don't even look fully human. But, both of them dress in similar - if not identical - clothing.

Why and how do we have more than one type of MIB? You can find the answer at this link.










Heading For Trouble...?

Wondering what this is all about? You'll find out in a couple of days...
