When Neil Arnold was asked to write a book on London's most perplexing mysteries, he was keen to speak of sightings of large, exotic cats around the capital. Of course, such animals are far removed from the world of the paranormal, but he was keen to inform the readership as to how such animals are always slotted alongside UFOs and ghosts.
'PARANORMAL LONDON' is Neil Arnold's new book, published by The History Press and acts as a strange safari through the concrete jungle, and features several short stories pertaining to flesh and blood mystery animals, as well as ghostly animals which litter London lore. The 'beast' of Bexley gets a mention, as does the Edgware tiger, the Winchmore Hill lioness, the Cricklewood lynx and many others. Clearly, these animals are not ghostly, or in any way paranormal, as was proven in 2001 with the capture of a lynx in a back garden in the capital, however, the publishers were keen to mention tales of large cats, even if they had to be slotted alongside reports of hellhounds, a phantom ape and UFOs.
'PARANORMAL LONDON' looks at obscure monster stories never previously published before, as well as more common London mysteries.
The book is available from Amazon and all good bookshops priced £9.99.
