Monster Files: A Look Inside Government Secrets and Classified Documents On Bizarre Creatures and Extraordinary Animals by Nick Redfern is an interesting story about a collection of fantastic sightings of bizarre creatures over the centuries. Redfern includes full length pictures of half-apes, the lagoon creature, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, winged beasts and creatures appearing to be real werewolves.
Dr. Joseph Banks Rhine tested the psychic abilities of dogs in being able to locate dummy minefields in California. His efforts met with more than a modicum of success. Redfern also documents a May 9, 1830 sighting of a huge sea snake by the British Royal Navy at sea off St. Helena.
Redfern describes the killing of a hypertrichosis inflicted man through the research work of Jonathan Downes of Devonshire, England. Hypertrichosis is a condition which renders a human face similar to a werewolf in size, ferocity and overall demeanor.
Redfern’s research also extends to Asia. For instance, he documented a sea serpent sighting on the Han River in Vietnam. The creature was 80 feet long. The author also did some research on sightings of the monster of Loch Ness, Scotland from time to time over the previous 14 centuries. The bibliography of the author’s research extends to nearly 15 pages of citations.
Monster Files is an important compendium of research explained at length with numerous pictures and citations to support the many arguments in support of these rare phenomena. The presentation is easy to understand, and the cost of the book is modest.Powered by Sidelines
