I like Nick Redfern. We've exchanged emails over the years and have a similar slant on Cryptids and Crowley and everything that begins with a "C"....but Nick starts this off with the words I MOST hate to read:"Because she does not want her identity revealed, for reasons that will shortly become apparent*, I will refer to her as the Black Widow."
This annoys me for the same reason it annoys Colin Wilson...it means I can't check your facts. So all we have to start us off is Nick saying "I met this lady back in 2001, she was nearly 80 (NEARLY??? What was she, a pre-pubescent bobbysoxer when she was doing all this super secret work at Oak Ridge, Nick?) I'm not going to tell you her name or anything about her but here's her story...."
And off we go on a Conspiracy Theory Can-Can.
To all authors of future books on weird things: we need to be able to check your facts---even when we trust and like you. Some batty old lady tells you some story but how are we the readers supposed to believe it? We can't check her bona fides. We don't know that she EVER worked for Oak Ridge---or even if she DID that she didn't have some sort of mental breakdown and come to believe some absolutely goofy paranoid delusion.
We only have YOUR word that this old lady even exists (or, at least, that she existed in 2001).
Not good enough, Nick. Now I trust you...but save the "anonymous" stories for the appendices from now on...give me facts I can CHECK.
Before I start believing you're the reincarnation of Frank Edwards.
* Incidentally---the reason never becomes apparent. What is the government going to do to her for telling Nick this story? Court publicity for her story by charging her with violating the Official Secrets Act? It'd be all over Coast to Coast with George Noory a day later and we all know it.
