About the Author

Peter McCue worked for many years as a clinical psychologist in the National Health Service in the UK. He lives in Scotland. His qualifications include a Ph.D., from the University of Glasgow, awarded for a thesis on the nature of hypnosis. His interest in psychical research goes back decades. He believes that paranormal phenomena occur, and that many UFO experiences are genuinely anomalous. He contends that if we want to obtain a comprehensive understanding of ourselves and the nature of reality, these enigmatic phenomena can't be ignored.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book by a British psychologist that takes a geographic approach to Fortean/paranormal subjects, with the focus on looking at the evidence for "hot spots" with overlapping reports of different paranormal phenomena.

Chapters 1-5 look at the various theoretical approaches to thinking about these topics, along with an overview of "things paranormal," from materialist-skeptical, to psychological-psi, to Fortean and "believer-based" ideas. The author is very even-handed in his treatments of these different points of view, with specific chapters devoted to UFOs, bigfoot, and hauntings/poltergeists. While these three subjects are the primary ones, other phenomena like mystery 'panthers' and other cryptids, missing time, geophysical phenomena, etc. are also discussed.

Chapters 6-15 look at geographic locations in England, Wales and Scotland, including "Clapham Wood," "The Warminster Phenomena," "The 'Welsh Triangle'," "Rendlesham Forest," "Cannock Chase," "The Pennines," "The Bonnybridge UFO Phenomena," "Ben Macdui," "Ghostly Events Near Inverness," and "Other British Hot Spots" (Blue Bell Hill, the A75 Road near Annan, the Sudbury area, the Daresbury area, the Carrington UFO hot spot, Dartmoor, and the Shropshire/Powys Border area).

Chapter 16 looks at "Hot Spots on the Mainland of the USA", including the Yakama/Yakima Reservation (Washington state), the Uinta Basin and the 'Skinwalker Ranch' (Utah), the San Luis Valley (Colorado-New Mexico), Dulce (New Mexico), the 'Bridgewater Triangle'/Hockomock Swamp (Massachusetts), the Hudson Valley (New York State and Connecticut). The Skinwalker Ranch was written about in

I purchased this book because I had heard the author talking about the Yakima Indian Reservation here in Washington State. I was not disappointed. The book tells of the many experiences other people have had in this area. They matched my own experiences. A very good read

Those with a curiosity about seen things and unseen things in our world should enjoy this book. There is much more to life than sex, crime, work, and the daily struggle. Those who seek and have some luck, can find interesting and perplexing occurrences throughout our planet.
