Beasts of the Skies

Posted by: Nick Redfern on April 7th, 2012

British-based creature-seeker and author Neil Arnold has an excellent new book out right now that you may want to get hold of, since it contains a significant body of cryptozoological data – as well as mountains of material on other Fortean puzzles. Its title is Shadows in the Sky: The Haunted Airways of Britain.

As the press-release for the book notes, its pages contain “…fantastic tales of dragons, said to have appeared all over the UK, from the cattle-plucking beasts of Welsh lore to London’s flying serpents. Winged, red-eyed humanoids also sneak into the pages, coverage given to classic aerial anomalies such as the Owlman of Cornwall, the Hythe monster, and the lesser known Hertfordshire ‘Mothman’ and the like. Griffins, giant birds, leather-winged batmen, flying jellyfish and sky-bound horses and dogs, occupy a surreal Ark also inhabited by spectral birds and feathery omens of death…”

And if all of that has caught your attention, you can learn more about the book, and where to purchase your very own copy, by clicking right here.

    While my mainstay is the water cryptids, I do have a soft spot for anything Fortean, and winged cryptids are almost as interesting as Champ and Nessie and Caddy. I’ll write this down and have a look.

    Thanks Nick.
