Book Review: Women in Black by Nick Redfern

Published in paperback on July 1st was a book that is one of my favorites I've read in awhile. Why? Because:

 1.) It's a great book overall, and
2.) It's subject is something there's never been a whole book written about before.

Of course, the book I'm talking about is Nick Redfern's Women in Black: The Creepy Companions of the Mysterious M.I.B. It was published by Lisa Hagan Books, who also published his Men in Black book from last year. I, for one, enjoyed this book quite a bit more than the other one. (Although that's mostly because there was more of Redfern's writing in this book.)

It's not surprising if you are someone who researches UFOs, the paranormal, etc. and you haven't heard of the Women in Black (or WIB.) I hadn't until last year when I saw that this book was being written. But, as soon as you start reading Redfern's newest book, you'll quickly find out that the WIB are seen just as much as the MIB, and are just as mysterious and creepy.

Redfern relates stories of mysterious Women in Black that range from the 19th Century to the present day. Some are directly UFO related, while others aren't, but still have paranormal overtones to them. Some that stuck out to me where those regarding Truman Bethurum and his mysterious "Aura Rhanes," mysterious, black-cloaked hags along old roads in Wales, and a WIB that was interested in Whitley Streiber's book Communion. Of course, those are only a few of many written about in Women in Black.

If you are someone interested in UFOs, MIB, the paranormal, or anything that would be labeled "strange," I definitely recommend this book to you. You won't be disappointed. But you might be creeped out a bit!
