A Modern Classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quest for the Hexham Heads (Paperback)
Like most people of my generation (I'm in my 40's) with an interest in anomalous phenomena, the Hexham Heads case is a classic. Strange stone heads, which may or may not be Celtic are dug up in a garden in Hexham. Once uncovered all manner of weirdness erupts - including the sighting of a 'werewolf' type of creature in the homes of some of the people who have the stones.
Paul Screeton was the first serious researcher on the case, and since then he has been the only serious researcher to investigate this case and try and track down where the heads are today.
This is Paul's second book on the Hexham Heads (the first was a privately published booklet published some years ago), and it is bound to become a modern classic! As you would come to expect from Paul's other books, no stone (head) is left unturned - and Paul takes the reader on an interesting, informative and at times speculative journey about the heads and the anomalies associated with them.
I found this book difficult to put down once I had started to read it. Paul writes with a compelling narrative style (as you would expect from a professional journalist).
The only minor drawback is the publisher - CFZ are not renowned for their promotion of the books they publish, which is always a shame, considering all the hard work their authors put into their books. Even the CFZ website is out of date regarding new books!
With Winter and long dark night approaching, do yourself a favor, and put this excellent book on your Christmas list.
