They sought out the strange.
They investigated the inexplicable.
They had one hell of a hangover.

On an odyssey of oddities that would take them all to the very limits of their imagination (and inebriation), bestselling author Nick Redfern teamed up with professional monster-hunters Jonathan Downes and Richard Freeman. For six weeks in the summer of 2001, the intrepid-yet...more

Immensely readable in a very pulpy sort of way.

First off, don't read this book for deep meaning or understanding about the mysteries of Fortean Zoology. This is Nick Redfern writing for himself. Nick is naive in a very good-natured sort of way, who believes wholeheartedly in conspiracies and paranormal explanations for even some of his most mundane experiences.

This is a story of three friends who share a love for the unknown and unexplained, who decide to take a one and done trip throughout Eng...more
There were several parts of this book that were laugh-out-loud funny and a couple that were scary enough to made me move to a well-lit room with other people. The whole premise of the book, that our world is inhabited by Cormons - demons from another dimension- that appear to us as phantom cats, Bigfoot, sea monsters and ape-men and feed on our fear, is really creepy. Really, really creepy. However, the fact that the three sat down to a breakfast of eggs, bacon and sliced tomatoes is pointless a...more

Recommends it for: anyone intrigued by the occult or cryptozoology
A humorous and very earnest (if not scientific) account of three guys who backpack across England, investigating various paranormal stories. It's been years since I read it, but the story about the witch still stands out in my head as being thoroughly creepy.

A weird journey from a frequent contributor to Fortean Times who travels around Britain looking for "monsters", aliens, anomalous big cats and "other" strange things, but mostly just sits in a pub with his mates getting hammered.
Rob Addams
Brilliant! A fascinating tale of three blokes travelling around the UK in search of, well, monsters. The author explains the journey in depth which allows you to really immerse yourself in their six week trip.
Colin Ward
One of my favourite books ever, makes you laugh one minute, then sends shivers down your spine the next.

Makes me want to get out there and find out what it really is that goes bump in the night!
Gina Sandoval
Interesting read and real quick. It's a humorous book filled with interesting bits of lore and myths, or truths possible depending how you look at it.
Faith Bicknell-Brown
This one is good, but not as good as his others. It moved slowly and dealt more with his friends, imho, than it did searching for monsters.
Not what I expected, but very funny parts. Boy they like to drink alot :)
Cole Bellon
