There's Something In the Woods
A Transatlantic Hunt for Monsters and the Mysterious

by Nick Redfern

Trade Paperback, 180 Pages, 26 Illustrations

$15.95, ISBN: 1933665327

Genre(s): Cryptozoology

Bigfoot? Check.
Phantom black dogs? Check.
Werewolves? Check.
Giant mystery birds? They’re here, too.

Toss in some haunted woods, spooky cemeteries, crop circles, and crashed UFOs and you’ve got Nick Redfern’s latest road trip across two continents for all things cryptozoological or otherwise mysterious. This is the third in a series of excursions into the occult fringe for the indefatigable Redfern.

It all started with Three Men Seeking Monsters, which Booklist called “lively and entertaining,” and was followed by Memoirs of a Monster Hunter, which his colleagues have called “wild and wooly” and “fascinating.” Now, in this latest volume, Redfern defies all the laws of self-preservation and offers himself as bait in the face of the unknown – to learn, if indeed, There’s Something in the Woods.

What they're saying:

“Part of Something’s appeal is its can-you-top-this quality...[accounts] from persons who, to all appearances of sound mind and unforked tongue, speak of encounters with a range of incredibly peculiar creatures…everything from phantom peacocks to giant snakes with feet to flying humanoids to living pteranodons… certainly makes for entertaining reading, while occasioning at times some deeper refections on the reader’s part...I doubt firmly that the sorts of esoteric beasts Redfern’s witnesses describe exist as hidden, uncatalogued wildlife alongside us in consensus reality, but they are present in some shadowy approximation, to be encountered in profoundly anomalous states of consciousness. In frustrating truth, the answers that we who are open to such things seek are well beyond current knowledge. In the meantime, ridicule is a very poor substitute for understanding.”— Jerome Clark, Fate Magazine

"Many book reviews give details of exactly what the book contains, but I think that would spoil the enjoyment of reading it. Suffice it to say that if you’re a fan of Nick Redfern, which I most definitely am, you will want to read this book right through to the end without putting it down. I loved this book..." — Kithra, Women Of Esoterica
