The Edinburg Incident and Other UFO Stories

Ever wonder if we are alone in this universe?

Over the years, researchers and scientists have scoured government documents in search of proof that life exists beyond Earth and has regularly visited us here.

One set of documents, known as Project Blue Book, includes retired, declassified records from 1947 to 1969 from the United States Air Force (USAF), currently in the custody of the US National Archives.

According to a US Air Force Fact Sheet, a total of 701 out of 12,618 sightings reported to Project Blue Book remained “unidentified.”

In a world of disinformation and false reporting, what can we believe?

The reports and stories within are true testimonies from witnesses and investigators, along with evidence corroborating, disputing and even dispelling the accounts from what is often reliable and credible (and in some cases, multiple) witnesses.

What will you believe?

Released on 25th November 2021.

Available for all eBook formats at all good online bookstores. (Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo)

The Portsmouth Literary Map

I’m extremely honoured to have been included in the Portsmouth Literary Map created by data creator, Dr Mark Frost, of Portsmouth University.

The Portsmouth Interactive Literary Map is a civic engagement, digital humanities project created by the English Literature team at the University of Portsmouth. It celebrates Portsmouth’s rich literary heritage and ongoing literary work, providing details of the many authors with city connections, exploring the wealth of literary works set in Portsmouth, and offering a host of literary extracts that provide varied perspectives on this unique and fascinating place. The map is by no means complete, and will continue to grow, both within the city and beyond its limits.

The link to my birthplace entry is here. The link to where I grew up, is here.

Literary Location entries for those sites featured in The Wretched, a horror novel written by myself, set in Portsmouth and based on local folklore, can be found as follows:
