Men In Black Reviewed
That being said, I always enjoy getting a new title by him in hand and with this particular offering, I had the pleasure of contributing a chapter.
Nick is certainly the go to guy when it comes to the infamous Men in Black. These creepy figures have floated around the fringes of the UFO field for a very long time, and despite how much they're written about, there always seem to be more lingering and unsettling questions about them.
Nick's latest offering on the topic is "Men In Black: Personal Stories and Eerie Adventures."
Like the title implies, the book is a collection of various accounts that relate to the creepy MIBs.
Nick called me way back about his idea for the book and he asked if I could write something about the possible connections between the MIB and the BEK or, black eyed kids. I had just the thing. An untold aspect of the possible connection between the two entities that also included electronic interference and Point Pleasant, WV, both key things related to the history of the MIB.
I was happy to get to share this weird experience that shows how strange things can get for those of us who spend our lives investigating the strange.
But there's much, much more in this book of course. Brad Steiger weighs in with his own story, pulled from his long career studying UFOs and the paranormal.
Jason Offutt writes about connection between MIB and the equally creepy Hat Man. Micah Hanks tells us about the Night Walkers, and author Christopher Loring Knowles, who's written a lot about pop culture, comes in with a piece titled MIB-UFO: Virtual Reality and Reality Tunnels. It offers a fascinating perspective.
The book also has a good selection of articles by people you may not have heard of, some directly involved in the UFO field, others not so much, but the common theme revolves around their encounters with the mysterious MIB.
All in all, this is yet another fine work by Redfern, and has with all his other titles, I strongly advise you to pick it up and give it a read.
