WEIRD EDITING

On June 5, 2018, Lisa Hagan Books publishes the latest from the master of weirdness, Nick Redfern. THE BLACK DIARY is a book so dangerous you’ll conjure THEM up just by opening it. And I should know.

I hadn’t thought of ghosts and the paranormal since the days when we held  flashlights under our chins to tell a late night story. I lived in the daylight; business in Midtown, fluorescent lights, swimming pools, beaches.

Then my business partner and her client, the great monster hunter and weird meister Nick Redfern, entered my life. The first Men in Black manuscript arrived and within a week, they began popping up in my world. All the cliched Men in Black characteristics were there; endless telephone interference; black-suited men with pale skin,  fedoras and sunglasses, jerking in and out of view, and strange photographers arriving to snap pictures of the house.  In the midst of a telephone call to Los Angeles, I was talking about a deal getting done and a rasping male voice said “you just think so”  when I remarked it would go forward. My callee did not hear him; the deal fell apart in days.

Being me, I got mad. Things got quiet until one night, I was looking into a mirror and saw two pairs of those skinny, jerky, black-suited legs running down the hall behind me.  I did what any red-blooded American woman would do: I told them off, loudly and with swear words. They didn’t come back. No, those particular ones did not come back.

After Men in Black  was published, Nick sent in another manuscript, Women in Black.  Great, I thought. Now a bunch of skinny women in dark suits will jerk through here. I couldn’t have been more wrong.  The process was peaceful, uneventful, boring almost. The women weren’t interested in me, I thought. Phew! We published the book.  I felt that great sense of accomplishment I get whenever another book launches out into the world. It wasn’t until Nick was doing his publicity that I saw her across the street on the stoop. She looked to be an octogenarian or older and was dressed like a 19th century Sicilian widow, all black lace and long black skirts. I jumped into the street and charged toward her, calling “ma’am! ma’am!” just as a Comcast van bore down on me. It passed and she was gone.

Did I make her up? Did I make all of them up? Am I that suggestible? I suspect I am. At the same time, I find it thrilling to think about parallel realties, one where everyone wears black and knows the future. But be forewarned; opening this book will open you up to something. Its origins? No one is sure.

THE CREEPS ARE FROM AROUND HERE

Nick Redfern has a remarkable career. He’s written over 20 books on everything from Slenderman to Bigfoot and he’s not stopping anytime soon. In addition, he travels the world hunting down monsters and appears regularly on The History Channel and SyFy, reporting on his findings. He also writes for the London Daily Express, Fortean Times, Fate, UFO Magazine, and Mysterious Universe. Nick is a busy guy.

Lisa Hagan Books is proud to publish this wunderkind’s series of men, women, and children in black, a bone-chilling look at dark entities that show up at the door and start knocking. Don’t open it;  they have an agenda and it isn’t nice.

Some folks like the Will Smith/Tommy Lee Jones M.I.B. characterization, but it could not be further from the truth. The M.I.B. are often threatening and always deeply weird.  (We’re talking a lot worse than Stephen Miller and his awfully large forehead.).Their legs jerk and their suits flap off their bodies, five sizes too large. They use equipment from the 1930s and 40s and can’t taste food.  They’re everywhere.

Why? Redfern, in his final yet-to–be published book on the MIB, WIB, and Black-Eyed Children phenomenon (Lisa Hagan Books, April 2018) introduces the idea of the tulpa, the Tibetan belief that thoughts can become real.  No longer will you be safe if you just stay away from strange activity; you can be a victim by just having a thought! 

As you read these books, you’ll have more questions than answers at the end and that’s the point. Nothing is ever wilder than our wildest imaginings, as Redfern has repeatedly pointed out.

Order Nick’s MIB series and plan to stay up late. The shadows will move and the floorboards will groan because just picking up one of these books invites them in to your head and your house. Be prepared for creepy all around.

Nick Redfern To Publish Women in Black

Reprinted from MysteriousUniverse.org

Coming very soon from Lisa Hagan Books is a follow-up book to my 2015 release, Men in Black: Personal Stories and Eerie Adventures. The title of the new one: Women in Black: The Creepy Companions of the Mysterious M.I.B. It’s a book which – like my 3 books on the MIB – demonstrates that the popular image of the WIB and the MIB being “secret agents” of some equally secret agency is very far from the reality of the situation. They’re way stranger.

Depositphotos_39725859_m-2015-585x306.jpgCertainly, in the world of on-screen entertainment the portrayal of the MIB and the WIB as employees of a top-secret, black-budget-style organization was presented most famously in the blockbuster 1997 movie, Men in Black, starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The movie, of course, focuses primarily on the two main characters (Agents J & K). However, there’s also the character of Laurel Weaver. She’s a Deputy Medical Examiner, played by Linda Fiorentino. In the final minutes of the movie, she’s recruited into that aforementioned black-budget agency and becomes Agent L, a definitive WIB.

WHEN BOOKS BECOME DANGEROUS, PART I

/by Nick Redfern

There’s no doubt that over the years I’ve written some weird articles on equally weird subjects. But, this 2-part one just might be the strangest of all. In the last few years I have seen a trend develop that seems to be increasing. It basically goes as follows. I am getting more and more reports from people who have read my books and who, as a result and in the direct aftermath, were seemingly targeted by the very same supernatural phenomena I was writing about.

No, I’m not kidding.

It all began back in 2010, when I was promoting my second book on the MIB, titled The Real Men in Black. One of the things I dug into in the book was the matter of MIB and telephone interference. We’re talking about strange voices on the line, weird electronic noises, and hang-up calls. Several people contacted me to report they were experiencing the exact same thing – but only after they had read the book.

NICK REDFERN’S NEWEST MEN IN BLACK: PART I

Reprinted with the permission of Mysterious Universe

Right now, I have a new book out titled Men in Black: Personal Stories & Eerie Adventures. This is my third book on the MIB phenomenon, the previous ones being On the Trail of the Saucer Spies and The Real Men in Black. Like most of my writing on the Men in Black, the new book demonstrates that despite widespread assumptions that the MIB are from “the government,” they clearly are not.

Of the thirty-plus chapters in the book, only two are suggestive of a government connection to the MIB controversy. The vast majority of the cases take things down very weird paths. They are paths that lead towards the domains of the occult and the paranormal. And in some cases there is absolutely no UFO link at all. In those cases, we’re seeing nothing less than full-blown supernatural activity.
