Cryptid Fest and the MIB

On the weekend of September 10-11, I'll be speaking at a gig in Oklahoma: The Cryptid Fest, where I'll be discussing the controversies surrounding the weirder - and paranormal-driven - aspects of Cryptozoology, including Men in Black sightings at Loch Ness, Scotland and during the infamous wave of Mothman encounters at Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the mid-to-late 1960s.

Here's the info on the event from the organizer, with a link below that to where you can find out more about the Cryptid Fest:

The Occult Section Review

There's a new review (at The Occult Section website) of my latest book, The Real Men in Black, about which the reviewer says:

"If you’re interested in the Men in Black phenomenon and want a thorough and interesting history, then this is the book for you. Well-written, well-researched and with lots of personal accounts from investigators and civilians alike, it’s a great book to add to your library of the paranormal."

Here's the link to the complete review.

MIB Origins

There's a tendency amongst many within Ufology to assume or conclude that the Men in Black surfaced when the modern era of Flying Saucers began in the summer of 1947. Maybe not. While reports of the MIB have certainly dramatically increased over the course of the last 60-years, there's evidence to suggest the phenomenon may be far, far older than most imagine - as my latest post at Mysterious Universe demonstrates...

Alien UFO Truth Review

The Real Men in Black is reviewed at Alien UFO Truth.

In part, the reviewer states:

"I read this book and could hardly lay it down. I feel very sure that once you read this book you will look at the whole 'Men in Black' thing much differently. Nick’s book answers many, many questions. It also brings up more. But it leaves very little room for doubt that there is much more than meets the eye going on!"
