A Grinning Man and Floating Fish

I've always been intrigued by accounts of "grinning men," from my own encounter with one on a remote back road, (detailed in Strange Intruders), to the accounts collected by John Keel.

Although not as well known or as wide spread as other weird humanoids, encounters with these odd characters do seem to happen frequently enough to leave a collection of tales to ponder. Of course, as with a lot of other phenomena, many questions are left in the wake of these encounters.

Researcher Jamie L. Brian just sent me this transcription of a grinning man account from an episode of Ground Zero Radio. It's a brief report, but very puzzling. The report was given my a man named Clay who called in from Ohio to relate his childhood experiences with a grinning man. From his quick description, it sounds as if Clay suffered from sleep paralysis, and it's during these incidents that a grinning man appears:

"I'm 43 years old now. When I was a child, all the way up until I was in my early teens, I would have such fear [trying to sleep] that I could not move. I could open my eyes and there would be a man wearing big overalls and a big work shirt, you know, like a plaid type of work shirt. He had white-grayish hair. His eyes were like black sunken in holes and he had perfect teeth when he smiled. And when I would focus on him, he would float up through the ceiling.

And I would have this for many years, and sometimes there would be these, the only way I can describe them is, like black fish floating around the room when he came in. That's the only way I can describe them. Almost like black spots."
