rsz_zz58d0655dNo, this has nothing to do with the subject that’s been so much in the news these days. As the subtitle to Joshua Cutchin’s new book, Thieves in the Night, makes clear, this is A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions. We are talking here about otherworldly beings who seek to steal that which parents hold most dear. Joshua Cutchin traces this primal concern from antiquity to the modern era—beginning with worldwide tales of faeries, changelings, spirits, demons, and monsters, before examining more contemporary phenomena such as Sasquatch kidnappings, alien abductions, and mysterious disappearances in national parks. Folklore, medicine, science, and spirituality all come together in this richly detailed work, producing a truly uniquely scholarly perspective on these thieves in the night. Another masterwork by the great Cutchin!
