What's in the Woods? Bigfoot? Check. Phantom black dogs? Check. Werewolves? Check. Giant mystery birds? They're here, too. Toss in some haunted woods, spooky cemeteries, crop circles, and crashed UFOs and you've got Nick Redfern's latest road trip across two continents for all things cryptozoological or otherwise mysterious. This is the third in a series of excursions into the occult fringe for the indefatigable Redfern. It all started with "Three Men Seeking Monsters," which Booklist called "lively and entertaining," and was followed by "Memoirs of a Monster Hunter," which his colleagues have called "wild and wooly" and "fascinating." Now, in this latest volume, Redfern defies all the laws of self-preservation and offers himself as bait in the face of the unknown --- to learn, if indeed, "There's Something in the Woods."

Although, Redfern gives the reader a wide variety of alleged incidents highlighted by verbal testimony of witnesses, he does not substantiate any of the sightings with on-going follow-up investigations which might include newspaper accounts, or other referrals which could inevitably help to substantiate or verify these unusual events.
For instance, in one story of Chapter 11 he tells the reader about the sighting of two very large "Harpies" type creatures with bat like wings that unexplainably came out through the cellar of large old house and into the night. These creatures were allegedly seen by a group of kids in the early months of 1946 in a small town just outside Lubbock, Texas. In addition, a motorist also reported seeing one of these creatures in the roadway several months later. This sounds like it could just as easily, be a scene from the horror movie, "The Hills Have Eyes." The incident is exciting to the readers mind, but...what town outside of Lubbock, Texas, What witnesses? What follow-up?
It appears that the author is leaning toward the possibility that these paranormal creatures and on-going events are of a real nature but, one hidden behind a veil of dimensional properties that only allows for these events to take place if, and when the time is right or, if, purposely conjured. He also seems to believe that these creatures and events are somehow... tied into the various ancient cultures of each area that he investigates.
Mr. Redfern no doubt has a real passion for the subject matter and is truly on a quest for some "real answers." However, although his plethora of stories is fun to read, they do little more than wet the appetite.
Have fun exploring the unknown, as always, be safe.
As he moves along in his investigations, Nick seems to be moving more toward examining the possibility of a human catalyst for the manifestation, or "summoning," of many such entities. His theories along these lines are quite sound and should give anyone who dabbles in the occult pause to consider just what they might actually be doing, knowingly or not. My only concern for Nick is that, in the course of his attempts to recreate such rituals and manifestations, he might himself some night fall victim to something that has no rightful place in our world (I have some advice for him concerning self-protection along those lines, which I'll be glad to share if he'd like).
Nick's books are an entertaining read, Hunteresque at times, but they are more than that--they are thoughtful and logical, presenting important clues and evidence regarding this very important arm of Fortean research, "monster hunting." Hopefully he'll continue on in this vein for years to come, and--who knows?--"bring one back alive" someday!
No--make that "some night."
