California, MIB and WIB

Here are a few photos from my trip earlier this week to California, to speak for the MUFON Orange County group and for the Los Angeles UFO and Paranormal Society. The subject: the MIB and the Women in Black.

A good time was had!

Got to hang out with good mate Greg Bishop (author of Project Beta and It Defies Language), as well as with a few other friends in Ufology.

Coast to Coast AM - Women in Black

Tomorrow night, I'll be on Coast to Coast AM, chatting with George Knapp on the subject of my Women In Black book. Here's the link to the show.

Absolute Bullshit!

This is absolute bullshit: Over at "The Anomalist," there is a link to my recent review of the "Dogman Symposium," which was held in Defiance, Ohio last weekend.

The Anomalist says:

"Nick Redfern give us his take on the conference recently held in Defiance, Ohio concerning the werewolf-like beings that are being reported in the American Midwest in The Dogman Symposium-Reviewed. Not surprisingly, he said a howling good time was had by all and the speakers were all terrific. Mr. Redfern’s review may be dead on, but it would be nice to hear the opinions of an attendee and not an actual (compensated?) speaker at the event."

The person who wrote this pile of complete crap was "MM." That's all I know of who they are.
Their comment about being "compensated" is absolute bullshit and clearly implies a biased review on my part.

For the record, no-one - at all - was paid.

Good friend Ken Gerhard put the entire event on out of his own pocket. It was an extremely brave thing for Ken to do and so we all agreed to do it without any fee at all.

In fact, me, Ken, Ken's girlfriend Jen, and Lyle Blackburn drove 18 hours in a car so that Ken wouldn't have to pay flights costs.

If "MM" had contacted me before posting that total shit, I could have told them no-one was compensated - we did it all for free, and we were totally fine about that because we all knew how much Ken had dedicated to this and put into it.

Of course, MM didn't bother to find out if we were compensated. Instead, they put the "compensated?" comment in the mind of the reader, when they should have checked in with me first. VERY shitty.

Had that person contacted me before posting that crap and the sarcastic "compensated?" comment, I could have set the record straight immediately. But they didn't. Which says a great deal about them.

The Dogman Symposium - In Photos

Here's a bunch of photos from the weekend, at the Dogman Symposium at Defiance, Ohio - some shots from the drive there, from the meet-the-speakers event, the gig itself, dinner on the Saturday night, and a visit to the site of the 1972 creature/"werewolf" encounter in town  at the old railroad tacks. An excellent time, and many thanks to good mate Ken Gerhard for all his hard work in putting the conference together!
