The Black Eyed Children: New Report



Well, there's a new development in the saga of the Black Eyed Children: a creepy report from right in the heart of England's Cannock Chase, just a short drive from where I used to live. As some of you may know, the Cannock Chase has been a hotbed of all kinds of paranormal weirdness for decades.

John Keel and the Mothman Museum

A couple more photos from my trip to the Mothman Festival this past weekend.

These were taken in the Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant and highlight the work of the legendary John Keel.

Good to see he's placed prominently in the museum!

Mothman: Two New Books


Andy Colvin, who has already written and published no less than six books on Mothman, now has another two to add to the list!!

They are Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman and  Inside the Prophecies of Mothman.

Here's the background on the books, from Andy himself:
 
"Spurred by the realization that the 9/11 attacks were accurately predicted – in 1967 – by a childhood friend who was seeing Mothman, Seattle artist Andy Colvin began filming a reality series, 'The Mothman’s Photographer,' documenting his experiences growing up in Mound, West Virginia.

"Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman chronicles the thoughts and feelings of several Mothman experiencers and researchers, beginning five years after the attacks (2008-2010). These revealing letters, penned during a wave of odd synchronicities, sightings, and encounters, indicate that Mothman may be a guardian angel of mind-bending proportions.

"Interwoven with these personal diaries are replies and other posts from Colvin, which reach back into the mysterious history of the Ohio Valley, providing not only a fuller context for the phenomenon, but also illustrations of how the paranormal and the media work together to help form public opinion and belief.

"In their thought-provoking attempts to figure out just what Mothman might be up to, Colvin and company look at every possible myth, legend, and conspiracy theory they can find, leading the reader on a wild, entertaining, and often poignant ride into high-strangeness. "


And, if you're wondering, Andy's other books are The Mothman's Photographer, The Mothman's Photographer II, The Mothman's Photographer III, The Mothman Speaks, The Mothman Shrieks, and The Mothman Squeaks.



Gray Barker's Book of Adamski


 And there's another Mysterious Universe article from me, this one being a review of the new re-release of Gray Barker's Book of Adamski.

It stars like this:

"Available, right now (and thanks to New Saucerian Books),  is a new edition of Gray Barker’s 1967 title, Gray Barker’s Book of Adamski. It’s a highly entertaining mix of fact, fiction, myth-making, and legend-creating. And, as a result of its age and subject-matter, of course, the story it tells harks back to the controversial days of the Contactees and the Space Brothers.

"Born in Poland, in 1891, George Adamski moved to the United States as a child. He spent four years in the military – at the height of the First World War – then spent time working, variously, in a flour mill and at the Yellowstone National Park."

Britain's X-traordinary Files



My new Mysterious Universe article begins...

"Out, right now, is the brand new book from David Clarke: Britain’s X-traordinary Files. As you may guess from its title, the book deals with British Government records on an astonishingly wide and varied body of paranormal phenomena. Most readers of Mysterious Universe will, I’m sure, know that over the years various arms of the British Ministry of Defense investigated reports of UFOs in the nation’s airspace.

"What Dave Clarke’s new book demonstrates, however, is what else the world of officialdom has had in its sights over the years. Some of it, as now-declassified files reveal, was not just weird. It was what we might term beyond weird. Dave is to be applauded for having spent who knows how many hours at the U.K. National Archives, digging around for material on the kinds of things that used to make Fox Mulder drool."

Men in Black: The "Other" Silencers




"With an article title like that above, you might think that I’m talking about the way in which the legendary, creepy Men in Black  make it their business to shut people up – and specifically UFO witnesses and researchers. Well, I’m actually not. The silencing  I refer to does relate to the MIB, but not in the way you might assume. If that all sounds a bit confusing, well, read on. All will soon become clear…

"About three weeks ago, I flew down to Houston, Texas to do a TV shoot for a forthcoming, 90-minute documentary. The subject was the controversy surrounding those mysterious, dark-suited characters that have plagued Ufology for decades. Since I have written extensively on the MIB, I often get asked to do television shows on the subject. Generally, they run smoothly. Not on this occasion, however."

That's how my new Mysterious Universe article begins. You can find it right here...

Pepie The Lake Monster - Reviewed


My new Mysterious Universe article starts like this...

"It’s always a good day when a review-book arrives in the mail and its subject-matter is one that intrigues me. Such was the case just recently when I received  a copy of the new book from Chad Lewis and Noah Voss. Its title: Pepie: The Lake Monster of the Mississippi River. Published by On The Road Publications, this is an excellent, regional study of a strange beast that many are likely completely unaware of.

"I particularly enjoy books that are regional in nature, as they generally offer deep insight into a case that, without that personal, in-the-field approach, would probably remain buried in obscurity. And, I have to say, the Lewis-Voss book does not disappoint."

And here's the complete article...

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."
