I would buy Nick Redfern's new book, Man-Monkey: In Search of the British Bigfoot, for the title and charming British place names alone: Grubstreet, Cannock Chase, and Shugborough Hall. Sounds like a landscape straight out of Harry Potter. But the hairy, apelike creature that has haunted this part of the British Isles since 1879 is anything but kid-stuff. Sightings that included a giant "chimpanzee", a large and hairy, upright bear, a werewolf-like "Moon Beast" and more became the targets of Redfern's five-year, on-site investigation. In the course of his work, Redfern scrounged up forgotten old files, interviewed dozens of witnesses, and quaffed endless flasks of tea in his hunt for the truth about this furry fiend. Redfern examines explanations from the natural to the Fortean, allowing that the ancient myth of the shape-shifting Kelpie just may play a part in these strange appearances. This book is an important contribution to the annals of furry, upright creature lore and belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in unidentified animals or unexplained mysteries.

Having just reviewed Nick Redfern's "Memoirs of a Monster Hunter" here at Amazon just a few days ago...and mentioning in said review that he just keeps "churning the books out"...I have to report that he's done it yet again. Here's yet ANOTHER one! We are looking at someone here who is about as prolific as some sort of Fortean rabbit! One almost gets the impression he's out to ultimately out-title Brad Steiger at this game.

So, one might well ask, if you turn the things out that fast, can the quality of the writing and research be that good? Well, the answer to that is that (to use a VERY favorite catch-phrase of Redfern's) it "well and truly" can!

The book is good, very good! It has all the hallmark characteristics of a Redfern tome; sly humor (or, should we say "humour"?), a chatty, folksy, glib style of writing, and a propensity for drawing the reader right into the thick of things right from the get-go.

And drawn into what?, exactly, one might ask. Well, drawn into an atmospheric run of mystery that conjures up thunder and lighting and pouring rain in a reader's mind; and dense, rolling fogs, and spooky rural countrysides filled with ghosts , crumbling castles, haunted manor houses and canal overpass bridges, possible dark occult practices of evil intent, sorcerously summoned (perhaps) creatures of darkness, and....since this IS a Nick Redfern book...plenty of time spent in the local pub , chugging a "refreshing beverage", and being regaled by the latest witness to things chilling and arcane.

And, like all Redfern products, it is an absorbing, fast read. You can immerse yourself in a Nick Redfern volume and just plain roll through it
in next to no time. There is never a thing boring about anything this author issues forth.

I love Nick Redfern's work. He is articulate, thoughtful and entertaining in every book he writes. Having grown up with the subject of Bigfoot and his kin firmly entrenched in my mind, I was very surprised to find how much information about this type of creature existed in England. Nick, being English himself, approaches the subject with an inquisitive mind and no small amount of wit to tell a remarkable tale of strange creatures lurking in the UK. A great book.

This book was really cool. I love Nick RedFern books any way. I didn't know England has so much weirdness going on there. I would love to have him do more about England and Scotland and there strange creatures.

Certain parts of the world are famous for their large hairy hominids: there's North America, of course, and the Himalayas for the Yeti. Even the isolated Australian continent has its own version of Bigfoot, the Yowie. And while Great Britain may not spring to mind as one of the more well known mystery ape haunts, author Nick Redfern suggests that we should not be so quick to dismiss the British Isles. In "Man-Monkey", the author takes us on a trip to the European continent, as the tagline reads, "In Search of the British Bigfoot."

On the positive side, much of the material in "Man-Monkey" is sourced from first hand interviews conducted by the author. The research was a side project of his spanning several years, and he was clearly motivated by a deep personal interest. He was able to visit many of the sighting locations in person, and the paperback text includes an insert of some black and white photographs to illustrate various people and places from the stories.

Unfortunately, for me, "Man-Monkey" never really managed to achieve critical mass. Unlike Bigfoot phenomena from other parts of the world, Redfern's monsters always seem to avoid leaving behind any convincing physical traces. What we're left with is a handful of the "momentary sighting of something" types of encounters that, while interesting, don't really go the full mile in terms of overwhelming evidence. Moreover, the author plays it pretty loose with the variety of strange events to be considered, also bringing topics such as black dogs, ghosts, and shape shifters into the fray. Many of the incidents documented here lack an apparent consistency.
