Plenty of weeks up to now I spoke on the annual Higher New England UFO Conference near to the Males in Black. Moreover speaking on the gig was Ronny Le Blanc, who generously gave me a consider copy of his 2016 e-book, Monsterland: Encounters with UFOs, Furry-man and Orange Orbs. As you’ll be capable to most probably guess from the title already, Ronny’s e-book is a controversial one. And there’s nothing unsuitable with that. Monsterland is a e-book that could possibly be very extra more likely to minimize up readers into two factions: those who contemplate that the various paranormal phenomena that Ronny describes are ultimately inter-linked, and people which can be of the opinion that such points can’t have such connections.
In several phrases, if – like me – you’re a fan of the works of people resembling John Keel, Linda Godfrey, and Rob Riggs, you truly should get a reproduction of Monsterland. Even must you’re not, it’s best to nonetheless spend cash on it, as it would very correctly set off you to reassess your views that Furry-man, UFOs and horrific lights don’t have any connection. As for the title of the e-book, it’s taken from a certain house in Leominster, Massachusetts which is known domestically as “Monsterland.” And with good motive, too: like Stage Good, West Virginia; Cannock Chase, England; and Texas’ Enormous Thicket, it’s a hotbed for a big and numerous physique of unbelievable weirdness.
Monsterland is part-road-trip, part-journal, and part-historical analysis of the realm and of its horrific reputation as a lair of monsters and mysteries. Ronny does a superb job of weaving all of these angles into an entertaining e-book that runs to 264 pages and which includes a complete lot of cool and associated B&W photos. It’s full of intrigue, journey, creepy encounters, horrific and numerous synchronicities, and realizations that actuality shouldn’t be all that’s cracked as a lot as be. Was it ever?
We’re dealt with to a superb, secure historic previous of Monsterland – the position – and of how, and why, it has gained such a reputation as a definitive supernatural magnet. To his credit score rating Ronny tells it as he sees it: he doesn’t draw again from explaining how and why he concludes that Furry-man is method over merely an enormous, unknown, North American ape. He addresses his private experiences, these of friends and colleagues, and decades-old circumstances. All of which, when launched collectively and coherently, paints a fascinating and mysterious picture.
On the matter of what Ronny calls the “Interdimensional Furry-man,” he says: “Due to the ‘extreme strangeness’ associated to Furry-man, some researchers are starting to think about that Man of the woods are every bodily and non bodily and that they reside in a quantum actuality. There are native tribes which have talked about all alongside that this generally is a half-animal, half-spirit. That the Furry-man reside on the border of two worlds.”
Controversial? Yep! Nonetheless, Ronny doesn’t merely make wild claims: he backs up this inflammatory idea with witness testimony and the historic report. The an identical goes for Ronny’s quest to find out the truth of the Furry-man-UFO-Orbs connection. Ronny describes a fascinating orb-based sighting in Leominster State Forest that he and a superb buddy, Bill Penning, had late one express night time time: “The orb, glowing orange and most positively self-luminescent, lastly received right here into contact with the sting of the woods leading to Bobcat Mountain…As quickly because it hit the outline of the timber, it started to maneuver by the woods, it lit up the entire timber and the whole thing spherical it in a widened circle.”
It will likely be unsuitable for me to reveal all of Ronny’s conclusions pertaining to the issues that Monsterland covers, must you plan to buy a reproduction. I’ll say, however, that if the stranger aspect of the Furry-man thriller intrigues and fascinates you then Monsterland is an outstanding e-book to dive into. Encompassing weird encounters inside the forests, Furry-man and invisibility, the probability that orbs are an intelligent life-form, the strategies and means by which Ronny found himself plunged proper right into a bizarre world of thriller and manipulation of a type that John Keel knew all too correctly, mysterious characters, and conspiracy-filled accounts, Monsterland makes for wonderful, late night time time finding out!
