Sorry to knock you down the page a bit you two (such a lovely picture as well!) but my friend and author, Neil Arnold’s new book, “Paranormal London” has just been released.
I’m not very good at this sort of thing, but I’ve just copied this, so hope it comes out okay here.
Roll up, roll up for the magical mystery monster tour…step right this way for a surreal and supernatural safari through the concrete jungle.
Neil Arnold’s new book, ‘Paranormal London’ is OUT NOW. Published by The History Press, this collection of obscure, chilling and monstrous tales features a menagerie of phantom animals, from hellhounds, to ghostly cats and birds, spectral ape’s, and ethereal bears. Relive the horror of Hackney Marshes, or come and visit Mr Davy’s monster. Peer in at the London mermaid, or howl in terror at the wolf of Clapham Common.
And then we have the tales pertaining to ‘big cats’ on the loose…the Surrey puma, the Sydenham leopard, the Cricklewood lynx, the Edgware tiger and the lioness of Winchmore Hill.
And it gets weirder…flying jellyfish on Wimbledon Common ? Forget The Wombles!
An angel on the Thames, UFOs, ghostly goings on, dancing coals, fish falling from the sky, pennies from Heaven, and those ghastly, sinister phantom assailants such as Spring Heeled Jack, the London Monster, the Hammermsith spook and the phantom wall smasher. And what about vampires ? Oh yes, they are here too. The Highgate vampire, a tall, red-eyed spectre responsible for mass hysteria in the 1960s at Highgate’s Gothic cemetery.
‘PARANORMAL LONDON’ is a highly original look at London’s weirder side…a side where the wild things are.
Available from all good book shops, Amazon, or direct from The History Press

Now, I’ll go back for the link a little later and hopefully edit that in here as well. But first let me tell you that I had the great honour to do the introduction as it says on the cover!
And ‘yes’ there IS a chapter on the Highgate Vampire inside! But ‘no’, forget about making any complaints Mr. ‘Tea Pot’ I did not mentions yourself, only the official British Psychic and Occult Society’s official Highgate ‘vampire’ investigation.
I will come back to thsi later, but in the meantime . . . “Well done Neil”!
