'Darklore 4' is released...

Greg Taylor, the main behind the superb 'Darklore' series of books, has released volume '4' of the line. Neil Arnold has an article in the book entitled 'The Goatsucker Family', and looks in-depth into the legend of the Chupacabra, but is quick to tell us why the Puerto Rican vampire is not as unique as many may think. The chapter looks into legends of other vampyric monsters from around the world, in fact no continent is excluded. From Asian bloodsuckers, to South American night predators, this is an article that breathes new life in to the mystery of the terrors that come in the night.

The book is available from Amazon, to read more about the release, click HERE

Spectral animals...

Over at Nick Redfern's fantastic Manbeast blog there's mention of a bizarre tale recorded by legendary ghost-hunter Elliot O'Donnell, which is mentioned in his revised 'Ghostly Pets' book. The tale concerns that of a spectral 'big cat' and phantom baboon. O'Donnell was a master at accumulating macabre data and his books, such as, 'Casebook of Ghosts', 'Dangerous Ghosts' and the above mentioned are well worth checking out.
