Lee Brickley Releases New Book on Cannock Chase



The much-anticipated book by our good friend from the UK, paranormal and cryptozoological researcher Lee Brickley, is finally available to the public and promises to be one heck of a read for anyone interested in weird things that go bump in the night (and sometimes even during the day).

UFO's Werewolves & The Pig-Man: Exposing England's Strangest Location is a 141-page book devoted to one of the spookiest places on Earth, the eerily beautiful woodlands of Cannock Chase.  While the government of the United Kingdom has designated Cannock Chase an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the verdant forests and scenic heathlands are said to be home to some of the most spectacular monstrosities the mind of man can conjure: werewolves, hellhounds, wildcats, giant reptiles, Bigfoot... and even a Pig Man.  In other words, if Mother Nature was a mad scientist, Cannock Chase would be her laboratory.

Author Lee Brickley


As Brickley points out in his book, Cannock Chase is known for much more than mysterious hominids and strange beasts.  For decades, the region has also been a hotbed of UFO activity, and all kinds of spooks have been reported to have been seen at Cannock Chase, from orbs to full-fledged apparitions.  Thanks to researchers like Lee Brickley, Cannock Chase has managed to earn its rightful place as an epicenter of bizarre activity, on par with the Bermuda Triangle, Roswell, and the haunted battlefields of Gettysburg.

UFO's Werewolves & The Pig-Man: Exposing England's Strangest Location has been praised by everyone from legendary ufologists Nick Pope and Nick Redfern to esteemed paranormal author Brad Steiger, and now Journal of the Bizarre is proud to give Lee's new book our ringing endorsement.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

Black Eyed Children Finally Explained!

Last month, we received an email from a reader in Michigan, in response to our article debunking the "black eyed children" phenomenon, which links these so-called "paranormal" entities to recreational drug use.  The reader, whom we will call Onizuka in order to protect his identity, claims that not only is he familiar with BEKs- but that he was one.  "Onizuka" agreed to speak with JOTB via Yahoo instant messenger.  Ironically, this conversation took place on 4/20, a date which is embraced by those who are part of the drug culture.


JOTB:Thanks for taking the time to speak with us.  In one of your previous emails, you stated that you were a "black eyed kid".  What did you mean by that?

Onizuka:  Last November I was driving late at night at turned on the radio and came across an episode of Coast to Coast AM and the topic of the show was black eyed children.  It convinced me to do some research on the topic, and that's how I found your article.  A…

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chauffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within t…
