Shameless Self-Promotion Part 2: Black Dogs

Without doubt the phantom black dog, or devil-dog, is one of more intriguing "creatures" of British folklore, history, mythology and cryptozoology. For the most part, at least, the black dog is perceived as being a beast of centuries-past. Every so often, however, a report will surface showing that the animal (or whatever it really is!) is still among us, still lurking in the shadows, and still up to its dark and disturbing antics.

My new book, There's something in the Woods, includes several recent reports of possible encounters with the elusive black dog - one in the UK and one in the United States. It seems that whatever the reason for its presence in our world, it still has work to do...

Nick,

Just ordered your new book and I'm looking forward to it!

Now, when Tonnies finishes his opus, I'll have plenty of brain-fodder!

Tell Downes I also ordered Arnold's book on Zooform Phenomena.

Best,

Cheers, Mike; many thanks! I will indeed tell Jon. As for Mac's book: I suspect that when it's published it's going to be one of the most talked-about UFO books in a long time!

Thanks C! Have you read Bob Trubshaw's book on black dogs? That's a good one.

No, I haven't read Bob's book. I'm backed up the wazoo. Unfortunately.

So many books, so little time...

C:
Yeah, I know what you mean! It's definitely worth reading though, if you get chance.

Speaking of phantom cats and dogs...

Did you see the "Exmoor Beast" episode of Monsterquest? Hope you did.

Cool episode. I actually liked it. Real compelling evidence, for once.

Unlike other cryptids, I guess the Beast will be known eventually.
My guess: Hybrid melanistic cat.
