Context is everything. Not all books have the same target audience.
This is it isn't it? Whoever has an interest in the paranormal field is attracted by different elements and tends towards types of thought that
either reflect their own thinking or are expressed in terms that appeal to them.
There are members who have a bookcase of Timothy Good and others who might go for the Whitley Strieber/Moulton-Howe perspective. Some of the authors
I've seen you recommending are authors I used to read too. It's all about which flavour of paranormal excites our senses...
Whilst Micah's outlook is usually at odds with my own, he has an audience and I respect the guy for his efforts. It takes a certain level of
commitment to pin your hopes of success on a subject that gives very little back.
Although there are blatant parasites and con-merchants in the field, I don't think Micah Hanks is one of them.
FWIW - Nick Redfern's a good guy and has done a great deal of research for ~20 years. He's someone I've had a few exchanges with and one or two
disagreements too. As a career writer, a lot of his output is to pay the bills and some of it is more interesting and controversial. A nice fella and
the same goes for the rest of Nick's 'crew.' To my mind, they've each contributed to the sum of knowledge regarding (and surrounding) these
elusive people and subjects. Paul, Greg and Nick have been friendly and helpful with me and that's good enough.
