Britain's X-traordinary Files

This looks to be a good, forthcoming book from Dave Clarke: Britain's X-traordinary Files.

And here's the book's description:

"David Clarke opens The National Archives’ own X Files to uncover the secret, official accounts behind legendary paranormal and extraordinary phenomena.

"From mediums employed by the police to help with psychic crime-busting to sea monster sightings reported to the Royal Navy, Britain’s X-traordinary Files brings to light a range of secret documents created by military intelligence and government agencies who have investigated and even used extraordinary phenomena or powers in recent history.

"Each chapter is underpinned by original, official records held at The National Archives, which throw new light on many rumors and unsolved historical mysteries, including the Angels of Mons and other legends of the Great War plus a variety of strange phenomena reported both in the sea and in the air, from phantom helicopters to the great sea serpent of the Victorian era. The final chapter scrutinizes official interest in the infamous Loch Ness Monster of Scotland and the ‘Beast of Bodmin.'

"These accounts are supplemented with contextual material gathered from interviews and the author’s own investigations, making truly eye-opening reading for anyone interested in the paranormal."

Older Books, New Titles

Just received in the mail new copies of 3 of my earlier books.

The originals were titled Monster Files, The NASA Conspiracies, and The Real Men in Black. They were published by New Page Books.

However, the new editions are published by Rosen Publishing and the new titles are True Stories of Real Life Monsters, True Stories of Space Exploration Conspiracies, and True Stories of the Real Men in Black.
I mention this because if you see them on Amazon (they are already on the site), you may think they are new books. They're not.

The only differences are (a) the publisher; (b) the title; (c) the cover design; and (d) the new ones are hardback, whereas the originals were paperback.

They've done a good job with them!

Contacting the Dead of Roswell....

My latest Mysterious Universe article focuses on what was - without any doubt whatsoever - one of the weirdest weeks of my entire life.

It was a week that revolved around nothing less than attempts to contact the souls of the dead entities found at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, and which culminated in a midnight seance in town!

All of it was filmed for a TV show that, somewhat mysteriously, never aired.

Here's the link...

PS: the photo above is from the actual seance itself...

Alien Contact in Puerto Rico?

"Arecibo Project" Researchers Make Contact with ET in Puerto Rico?

Boqueron, Puerto Rico (August 18, 2014) -- An independent group of researchers in Puerto Rico believe they possibly made contact with "beings from elsewhere" last Friday, August 15, 2014, 37th anniversary of the mysterious "WOW! Signal" captured by SETI.

The "Arecibo Project," led by Joshua P. Warren, Director of the Bermuda Triangle Research Base, spent the day transmitting radio messages into outer space from Arecibo, Lajas, and other parts of the island, asking ET to appear around certain GPS coordinates as a live webcam streamed footage of the general location.

A variety of anomalies were captured on camera, including a "saucer-shaped object" that appeared then shot straight up into the sky, accompanied by a strange, high-pitched tone.

Warren's team compared that tone to the famed WOW! Signal, and say it is so similar they think the UFO possibly sent this signal to them as a sign of successful communication.

"We believe the UFO may have sent us the same type of signal that came from space, and was recorded by SETI, 37 years ago. This was a complete surprise. Though it was picked up via a webcam microphone, and not a broad dish like SETI had, our analysis thus far has shown it is essentially a demodulated signal from the WOW! transmission turned into audio."

The message sent into space, an invitation for contact, was recorded by George Noory, host of "Coast to Coast AM" the largest overnight radio program in North America.

Live footage was being analyzed in Washington DC at the studio of filmmaker C. Eric Scott, while audio was being processed at a lab in North Carolina. The researchers are asking for others with expertise to analyze the UFO images and compare the audio themselves. Data is freely posted at:

When asked for his opinion of what the "beings" may be, Warren said:

"After my 7 years of research here, the accumulating evidence suggests we may be dealing with a new form of life in Puerto Rico. Sometimes huge, and sometimes small drones, I believe these beings could be a highly-advanced, extremely sleek and efficient organic/electronic hybrid. They have probably evolved much longer than humans, and are now capable of inter-stellar and inter-dimensional travel, seeming to pop in and out of our visible dimensions almost instantly. Hundreds of years of native lore, combined with our modern research, indicate they might be sensitive to human thought, often engaging in contact when a highly-focused human, or group of humans, telepathically projects a desire to interact with them. We don't know their ultimate agenda, but if it were detrimental to humans, we'd likely have been harmed by now."

The Chupacabra: My Views

Back in late 2005, I traveled to Puerto Rico for a week with Paul Kimball (of Red Star Films). The purpose was to make a documentary titled Fields of Fear - which was on the subject of animal mutilations/cattle mutilations.

Paul has uploaded  to YouTube an interview that he did with me while we were on the island. Here it is, below. Time has flow, hard to believe it was almost a decade ago!

Cryptozoology Fiction

I picked this up for $1.50 the other day at a used book store: a 1981 collection of cryptozoology fiction that covers such things as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, sea serpents and much more. It's pretty good!

UFO Books: Old Titles Re-Released

I received in the mail a couple of days ago the latest review-batch of book releases from Andy Colvin that his New Saucerian Books company has published. 

I have said it before here at my blog, that if you are into old UFO-themed books from the 1950s/1960s etc, then NSB is definitely a company to support, since they are doing a great job of bringing out decades-old originals in new editions.

The new titles are reprints of Howard Menger's From Outer Space to You; Flying Ships, Humanoids, and Creatures of the Subterranean World; Jim Moseley's Book of Saucer News; Gray Barker's Book of Adamski; Woody Derenberger's Visitors from Lanulos; Alvin Moore's Mystery of the Skymen; and Michael X's Secrets of the Saucer People. There's also Robert R. Lyman's Forbidden Land: Strange Events in the Black Forest, Vol. 1; and Amazing Indeed: Strange Events in the Black Forest, Vol. 2.

The Mothman Festival and British Monsters

I'll be speaking at the annual Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, West Virginia on the weekend of Sept 20-21. 

The subject of my lecture: Mothman-style creatures in the UK, such as the Owlman, the creepy critter that turned up in Kent, England back in the '60s, the flying man of England's Cannock Chase, and much more...

Two Volumes of Paranormal Excellence!

Liz Randall (who writes under the name of Kithra) is a good friend of mine who lives in Cornwall, England. 

She has a collection of her writings out right now, which is contained in 2 volumes and that I wrote the forewords for. 

They are very cool books that cover a wide range of mysteries, including sightings of "big cats' in the UK, mythology, folklore, ghostly black dogs, sea serpents, and much more...

Their titles are From Lyonesse to Alien Big Cats and Back Again (Vols. 1 & 2).

Here's where you can buy the first volume, and click here for the second.

Ralph E. Fash

In case you haven't checked the "Comments" section of my previous post on four old books I stumbled on a couple of days ago......

Thanks to Loren Coleman for finding that what I thought was Daniel Fry's The White Sands Incident book signed to "Ralph & Fash" is actually Ralph E. Fash.

Fash was an engineer from Fort Worth, Texas who died in 2009 at the ripe old age of 95, as you'll from this link

It sounds like he was a very interesting guy.

Old Books And An Interesting Discovery...

I found a few cool, old titles at a local, used bookstore the other day: a first edition of Arthur Constance's The Inexplicable Sky, from 1956; a copy of Adi-Kent Thomas Jeffery's The Bermuda Triangle booklet from 1973; Alvin Moore's Mystery of the Skymen, (published by Gray Barker's Saucerian Press in 1979); and an old copy of Daniel Fry's The White Sands Incident
I got all 4 for a total of $15. On top of that, in the back of the Constance book there were loads of old newspaper clippings tucked away, all on weirdness. 
Plus: the Fry book was actually signed by the man himself!
It looks like the Fry book is signed to "Ralph and Fash," whoever they may be!
