This review is from: Owlman and Others (Paperback)
This is one of the strangest fortean investigations I have ever read. The first thing that grabs you is the striking front cover picture that seems to capture the "feeling of menace" that pervades the whole book.
The book lists the sightings of a frightening birdman which terrorises teenager in a desolate Cornish churchyard.
It soon transpires that the sightings of the Owlman were not the only strange things that were happening in Cornwall at that time. Birds were behaving like in that famous Hitchcock film, farm animals disappeared; and, in a local zoo, animals were being mysteriously mutilated overnight.
The author cleverly links the high strangeness with the works of the surrealist artists Tony Shiels and Max Ernst. The Owlman, says Jonathan Downes, is a surreal manifestation.
This book is exciting from beginning to end and is essential reading for anyone interested in the paranormal.
In my opinion, this is a very important book.
