Innnnnnteresting! I own a few books of this nature. Would it be possible to see the index, if it has one? Or at least the table of contents?

That clicking & wind noise was seriously annoying, much more so than even the Kenny Feder episode some time ago.

Still, it was quite interesting as the focus was much more on the folklore of monsters as covered in the book rather than the book itself.

So, was Gef in that book? :mrgreen:

No - he cut it off around the early 20th century. Gef was the 1930's IIRC. Fortean Times just did a story on Gef and I need to get that issue, but haven't yet.

Hmmm...I'll have to check out the local Borders & see if they still carry the FT.

Maybe listen to this episode again tomorrow, they have great replay value.
