"Believe In Us, But Not Too Much"

Those were the words allegedly spoken by an alien being to U.S. police-officer Herbert Schirmer, in the early hours of a fateful night in December 1967. And, here's the story...

 Over at Mysterious Universe, I review a 2017 zombie movie called The Cured. It's a cool movie which avoids the typical zombie-style scenarios and gives the subject a fresh, new approach...

UFOs, Bob Lazar, Area 51 and Russian Spies...

Those are all the subjects of a new article from me at Mysterious Universe. It's a weird tale of attempts by the Russians to try and figure out what was (and still is) going on at Area 51, and how the strange and controversial saga of Bob Lazar plays a role in all of this.

You can find the article here.

And, you can find much more about this specific story on January 1, which is the release date of my next book, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies.

"Area 51" My New Book Coming On New Year's Day

Coming on January 1, 2019 is my next book, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups & Conspiracies.

And here's the info on the book from the publisher, Visible Ink Press:

It’s no secret that, roughly 100 miles north northwest of Las Vegas, in the middle of a remote dessert, sits an extension of the Edwards Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51, but its clandestine purpose and operations remain shrouded in secrecy. 

It’s a highly classified, restricted area, but, cloaked in conspiracy theories, its history and true function remain a mystery. Is it only devoted to flight testing experimental aircraft and building black ops weapons systems as some contend? Or is it home to a dead alien, crashed UFOs, and extraterrestrial technology…? Or all of the above? 

Taking a thorough review of the historical record, eyewitness accounts, whistleblower testimony, and deathbed confessions, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups and Conspiracies peers behind the classified secrets to understand the nature, history, and scope of the most controversial base in the United States. 

Redfern investigates the Cold War years, U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and chemical and nuclear weapon research as well as the base’s link to an extraterrestrial presence on Earth, reports of alien autopsies, recovery of non-terrestrial spacecraft, and attempts to duplicate the fantastic, alien technology. 

From UFOs to secret aircraft and the CIA, shadowy government programs and unexplained events surrounding Area 51 are illuminated, including … 

  • The government’s Nevada land-grab at Paradise Ranch
  • The U-2, the Blackbird, and the A-12 tests, refinements, and flights
  • The Robert Scott Lazar revelations
  • Roswell Incident and Project Mogul
  • The development of “black helicopters”
  • The “Autopsies – Bodies Unknown Origin 47” file
  • Intelligence gathering through ESP, parapsychological, and mind control
  • Secret research on teleportation
  • Vast, hollowed-out chambers, tunnels, and hidden underground facilities
  • And much, much more!!!

    My New Book: Top Secret Alien Abduction Files

    Top Secret Alien Abduction Files is my new book (November 1 is the official publication date). Here's the info on the book from the publisher, Red Wheel/Weiser:

    "For decades, people have reported close encounters with extraterrestrial entities. Witnesses describe being kidnapped by large-headed, black-eyed creatures from other worlds. Those same creatures have become popularly known as "the Grays." There is, however, another aspect to the alien abduction controversy.

    "Abductees very often report being followed and spied upon by military and government personnel. It is typical for abductees to see black helicopters hovering directly over their homes in an intimidating manner. Phone calls are monitored. Emails are hacked into. Strange men dressed in black suits are seen photographing the homes of the abductees. All of this brings us to the matter of what have become known in the domain of alien abduction research as 'Military Abductions,' or 'MILABS.'

    "According to numerous abductees, after being kidnapped by aliens they are kidnapped again . . . by the government. These follow-up events are the work of a powerful group hidden deep within the military and the intelligence community. It is the secret agenda of this highly classified organization to figure out what the so-called Grays are really up to. And, the best way for the government to get the answers is to interrogate those who have come face-to-face with the UFO phenomenon: the abductees. Why is the government secretly compiling files on alien abductees? Is the alien abduction issue so sinister that it has become a matter of national security proportions?"

    The Hazards of Paranormal TV

    Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to making a TV show on the world of the paranormal? I have had more than a few experiences, most of which have gone smoothly. There are, however, a few that have been fucking disasters. Here's one example...

    Strange Creatures and Railroads: New Article

    A new article from me on why so many strange creatures are seen near, or on, railroads...

    If you're interested, the photo above shows (L to R) Lyle Blackburn, John Tenney, me, and Ken Gerhard, at Defiance, Ohio. In 1972, a werewolf/Dogman-type creature was seen in Defiance on these particular tracks (picture taken in August 2016).

    My New Book, "Paranormal Parasites," Reviewed

    A cool new review of my latest book, Paranormal Parasites, from Robert Goerman:

    Paranormal Parasites: The Voracious Appetites of Soul-Sucking Supernatural Entities by Nick Redfern Paperback: 240 pages Publisher: Llewellyn Publications (September 8, 2018) Review by Robert A. Goerman Nick Redfern's latest chilling paperback is Paranormal Parasites: The Voracious Appetites of Soul-Sucking Supernatural Entities. That swollen title alone triggers some mental gag reflex at the back of my mind. I feel violated. The tagline and blurb on the back cover shove me down his rabbit hole:

    "The terrifying truth is that THE EARTH IS ONE BIG FARM. And to paranormal parasites . . . WE ARE THE CATTLE. "Most people remain oblivious to the truth — there's a monstrous menagerie of supernatural entities that feed upon human victims without our knowledge. Fueling themselves with our psychic energy, high states of emotion, and essential lifeforce, these dark entities attack as we sleep and even in our waking hours, terrifying and tormenting unsuspecting souls whenever and wherever they can."

    These are bold statements. Has Nick bitten off more than he can chew? Paranormal Parasites is a spooky and unsettling journey. Its arguments are as disturbing as watching maggots feed on a carcass. It is, quite honestly, a springboard to nightmares. Unfortunately, this book is not simply grandiose speculation. Redfern hits the ground running and covers a lot of territory. His menagerie includes Black-Eyed Children, Shadow People, djinn, thought-forms, Men in Black, aliens, hungry ghosts, incubi and succubi, Bigfoot, zombies, vampires, and spectral nameless things that haunt and hunt humans. Paraphysical creatures that literally kill and eat us are bad enough.

    What defense do we have against supernatural entities that secretly feast upon us? How much soul can a soul eater eat? Chapter 7 involves Mind Monsters. I also imagine that a tulpa or mind-creature can be created by human thought. Not in the same way that Nick and others think this is possible. After all, millions of children fervently believe in Santa without effect or consequence. No. The necessary catalyst for creation might be the intervention of a watchful nonphysical intelligence. The tulpa or poltergeist is a reflective decoy. Belief and emotion feed the original source, not the distraction. This book makes me wonder about my own research.

    How often do paranormal prowlers carry out their agenda in your home while you sleep peacefully in your bed? Men, women, and children everywhere awaken and discover that they are not alone. I continue to accumulate accounts of nonhuman beings that terrify vulnerable humans at night. These are not innocent hallucinations associated with Aware Sleep Paralysis. Many victims are immediately compelled back to sleep or rendered unconscious. The motive for these paranormal home invasions has always escaped me. Are these entities enjoying a late-night snack?

    Paranormal Parasites is an appetizer. This ideal portion gives readers that perfect taste of food for thought. There will always be a place for you at the table. Whether you are guest or entree is up to you. Highly recommended.

    UFOs, the "Contactee" issue and Russian meddling...

    For those who may be interested, a new article from me on UFOs, the alien "Contactee" issue, and Russian meddling:

    The article begins as follows...

    "Russia’s undeniable and outrageous meddling in things that are none of their business has a significant bearing on the UFO issue of yesteryear. With that in mind, I thought it would be timely to bring to your attention a few intriguing and eye-opening issues. Firstly, the pro-Russia stance of a certain famous UFO Contactee. That man was George Adamski. He was arguably the most famous and controversial of all the Contactees: he claimed multiple encounters with human-like aliens from other worlds, including Venus, no less (yeah, right…). The facts concerning the Russian issue are contained in Adamski’s FBI file, which is in the public domain, thanks to the terms of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. An FBI document of May 28, 1952 reveals that the FBI had a credible source who, back in 1950, had shared with them certain data on Adamski."

    From The Anomalist...

    August 27

    Nick Redfern begins an intrigue-laden trilogy about hush-hush U.K. attention towards UFOs--and towards those others similarly interested. Here Nick introduces the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), Great Britain's National Security Agency equivalent, and one Robin Cole, head of investigations for the Gloucestershire UFO Group. Cole's 1997 report on the GCHQ/UFO connection apparently got him into trouble even before it was published. And maybe that was because Cole's research uncovered GCHQ concern about dramatic military/UFO encounters like the one Nick recounts here. The plot thickens in Nick's GCHQ and UFO Secrets, with an account of a sighting over GCHQ itself. Its security guard witnesses were threatened by their superiors after the story broke. And in Surveillance, Saucers and Spies Nick describes the "trouble" local investigator Cole got into, along with an almost comical account of how Cole was given the photograph gracing the front cover of his GCHQ and the UFO Cover-Up.
