Not quite sure what to make of this book.

Nick Redfern is someone I admire and enjoy reading. Although this has to be said isn't his best book. Bit of a `pot boiler' using info from his other books. Still, you could argue that its nice to have it all in one book. Some references strangely missed out that relate to Staffordshire - including Peter McCue's excellent `Zones of Strangeness' and some Karl Shuker articles from Fortean Times.

Strangely there are cases mentioned in some detail about mystery animals NOT seen in Staffordshire - giving this more of a `pot boiler' feel!

The strange `add on' of the second author - Glen - is very strange indeed! Obviously the two authors wrote their sections without meeting up (understandable) - but there are no attempts to `gel' it together! In fact, at the end of each section, clearly compiled by Nick, Glen pops up like a sort of `mini me' tagged on at the end, which is a shame, because he is a good researcher and writer.

There are some dreadful drawings at the end of the book too. Perhaps I am being unfair, and they were drawn by the Cannock Chase bigfoot - using it's feet!

Overall - a nice idea for a book, poorly executed, but still nice to have in one volume.

Format: Paperback
The 'Mystery Animals of the British Isles' series from CFZ Press is an essential guide to all things monstrous and mysterious when it comes to Britain's oldest and weirdest counties. Whilst countless guide books may talks about essential tourist spots, or the best pubs, the 'Mystery Animals...' series focuses on all manner of oddities such as strange animal sightings, peculiar monsters said to roam specific woodlands, creature-infested marshes and other intriguing tales of escaped animals and animal lore. Nick Redfern and Glen Vaudrey look at many cases, many known, some unknown, in regards to Staffordshire's dark woodlands and dense undergrowth - from rumoured 'big cats' to ghastly, ghostly black dogs, plus as look at the mysterious Cannock Chase environs, this is a must-have book not just for locals, but anyone interested in the peculiar side of a county.
