NEW EBOOK - The Yarri or Queensland Tiger (Cryptid Casebook Book 5)

NEW EBOOK - The Yarri or Queensland Tiger (Cryptid Casebook Book 5)

My very good friend Larry Jaffer has a new ebook out.

Lurking in the tropical mountain forests of northern Queensland is said to be a savage beast which is able to disembowel a kangaroo with ease and to have little fear of humans. But does the Yarri or Queensland Tiger really exist?

Eyewitness reports by people travelling in the more remote areas of northern Queensland speak of a savage creature over 5 feet long that can climb trees, spring like a tiger and climb trees like a leopard. It has been seen to kill calfs, slaughter kangaroos and feast on wallabies. But without a body to study, scientists are reluctant to accept that this strange killer is a reality.

In this book cryptid expert Larry Jaffer reviews the evidence for this mysterious beast and comes to some surprising conclusions.

Cryptids are animals, or plants, which are believed by some people to exist, but which have not been accepted as real by the wider scientific community. These cryptids are animals which have been seen, and sometimes photographed, but for which no definitive evidence has been This series of Cryptid Casebooks explores the world of the cryptids.

The Crying Ghost of Dorchester, Dorset

The Crying Ghost of Dorchester, Dorset

Dorchester is a county town of great character. It is, of course, at the centre of “Hardy Country” and as such has numerous reminders of the great writer, Thomas Hardy. More than one of his novels was set here, though the town was fictionalised as ‘Casterbridge’ and short stories and poems also relate to this town. People have lived here for over 5,000 years, so it is no surprise that ghosts are thick on the ground.

In the town centre park lies the excavated Roman House.

Unusually for a Roman site, the mosaics have been left in place instead of being removed to a museum. When the house was excavated the pathetic bones of a baby just a few weeks old were found in the foundations. This grim discovery may explain the plaintive crying that has been heard in this park from time to time. Dorchester was the Roman city of Durnovaria, one of the largest and most prosperous in southern Britain. Unlike some, it survived the English invasions and continued to be a busy centre for the surrounding countryside through the middle ages and down to our own times.

The Sad Phanton of Lydia Atley

The Sad Phanton of Lydia Atley

Further upstream from Oundle, Northants, the Nene flows past the little village of Ringstead. One night in the 1780s a local girl by the name of Lydia Atley went missing and was never seen again. Local gossip had it that her boyfriend, a farmer from Addington, had killed her after she told him that she was pregnant. There was, however, no evidence against the man and no body was ever found.

The ghost of poor Lydia, however, was soon seen about. It stands beside the gate to the church dressed in the long frock and tight bonnet that she was wearing when she vanished. Usually she simply fades from view, but one or two witnesses say that they have seen the spectre turn and walk off along the lane to the east. Perhaps she is recreating her last walk on earth, or she may be trying to lead humans to the spot where her bones lie buried. If so, she has not succeeded. She vanishes too quickly for any mortal to learn where she is going.
