THREE MEN SEEKING MONSTERS:
SIX WEEKS IN PURSUIT OF WEREWOLVES, LAKE MONSTERS, GIANT CATS, GHOSTLY DEVIL DOGS, AND APE-MEN
BY NICK REDFERN

A real-life Harry Potter for grownups or a “Mothman Prophecies” for Generation Next

   
  In the summer of 2001, best-selling British ufologist Nick Redfern decided to move to the United States. But two of his friends, monster-hunters Jonathan Downes and Richard Freeman, weren’t going to let him go without a farewell adventure. That summer they took him on the ultimate send-off: a six-week-long rampage through Britain’s remotest places in hot pursuit of -- what else? -- monsters. Fueled by their thirst for the strange, the intrepid trio journeyed from the heart of the country’s most ancient forests to the shores of monster-hunting central, Loch Ness. THREE MEN SEEKING MONSTERS captures it all, vividly recreating a kaleidoscope of the surprising, the surreal, and the just plain weird. Our threesome probes the secrets of a creepy old mansion; encounters witches and government agents; and meets plenty of people who have seen devil dogs, sea serpents, and man-beasts. Ultimately, they learn that only by abandoning their objective quest in favor of active participation can they summon their quarry. Whether seeking a glimpse into the bizarre reaches of reality, or just looking for a good time, THREE MEN SEEKING MONSTERS is a uniquely gonzo trek with a trio of adventurers who pushed themselves to the edge -- and went right over it.

“Picture three British ‘blokes’ -- a bald-headed punker (the author), a Goth herpetologist who dresses like a pirate, and a six-foot-six-inch, 400-pound behemoth who wears a Sherlock Holmes cap -- in a recreational vehicle and six weeks off to investigate monsters, and you have grasped the essence of this one. Despite an insatiable thirst that leads them to many pubs along the way, Redfern and his companions manage to get within chasing distance of two or three ... folkloric critters. Their explanation for what takes place is almost as bizarre as the beasts themselves, but this is a lively and entertaining crypto-zoological road trip.” -- Booklist

“Redfern and two paranormally inclined pals… take the reader for a rollicking, often alcohol-infused ride in a camper … ‘chasing monsters around the British countryside.’ … At the end of their quest, Redfern and his colleagues weren’t disappointed--nor will like-minded readers be after finishing this cheerful excursion into the occult fringe.” -- Publishers Weekly
