There’s a new article from me at Mysterious Universe which looks at an alternative theory for some of Britain’s centuries-old reports of strange beasts, including the legendary “phantom black dogs.” It starts like this…
“Just recently, I had a fascinating conversation with a fellow researcher of so-called “British Bigfoot” reports – which is a particular and favorite area of investigation for me, and which was the subject of my 2012 book, Wildman. It turns out that he has been studying a number of stories relative to hairy ‘wild men,’ cannibalistic sub-humans, and other, similar, horrific humanoids reported in the English county of Devon way back in the 1600s and the 1700s. In doing so he has uncovered something very interesting and eye-opening.
“If I sound just a little bit mysterious here, it’s because my colleague in question is preparing a major paper on all of this, hence why – right now – I’m being more than fairly vague about his identity. His paper should, however, appear in a major periodical before the end of this year. And, no, I’m not blowing any whistles by telling you the basics of the story. He’s cool with it.”
