This is a review of all of Frank Edwards' work.
When I was a young adolescent, my mother would take the train to work. At the station, there was an area that offered paperback books by the library and other commuters. The idea was to borrow a book and also one could donate a book. My mother would get the old Frank Edwards books and I would read them after her.
I recently got a few copies of the original books by Frank Edwards. They are flawed by many standards, but they introduced many of us at a young age to paranormal and UFOs. Many of the stories are second hand at best, and there are no citations at the end of the book. But that didn't matter, as one was taken into the style.
Some read like mini horror stories (finding a purplish blob reminded me of the movie "The Blob"), and others were simply terrifying like the Flatwoods Monster. At times, I would read the book at night (which was a big mistake at times) and find myself cringing to every little noise I heard wondering if it was an alien.
The books themselves are quick reads for the most part, and have little to back them up. However, they receive the highest marks for the memories they bring and for getting me involved in these phenomena. For that, I am forever thankful to Mr Edwards.
