PRAISE FOR TABLOID MAN *** The prestigious London-based magazine Fortean Times judged ‘Tabloid Man” a favorite read and called it: ‘Yellow press journalism at its most repellently amusing.’ The FT’s literary editor Valerie Stevenson (under the pen name William Darragh) wrote: “Paul Bannister’s book rollicks along with more than a little literary ability… the narrative weaves tales of rat-like cunning, psychic adventure, derring-do and the eventual decline of the National Enquirer after a change in the public’s taste – and an anthrax attack. Read all about it!”
*** Reviewer Nick Redfern’s judgment in the US journal The Anomalist called ‘Tabloid Man’ “a fine piece of work and a first-class account of what goes behind the scenes in the world of freelance journalism and its links to Hollywood, deep scandal, and all-things supernatural. But, Tabloid Man is far more than just that. It’s also a celebration of what it means to live rather than just to exist, of doing things on one’s own terms, of grabbing the proverbial bull by the horns, and of the always-unpredictable adrenalin rush that accompanies the words of your forever-demanding editor: “Get on a plane to Thailand; someone has just seen Elvis!” Or, something like that anyway!” http://forteanreviews.blogspot.com/2011/06/tabloid-man.html
*** Spirit Realm Investigation group leader Kendra Belgrad put ‘Tabloid Man’ at the top of the Pennsylvania organisation’s recommended reading list and commented:” The bizarre encounters Paul Bannister was lucky enough to experience are brought back to life with his witty banter and investigative approach. I found myself unable to put the book down, gobbling up the text, and eager to know what the author would run into next. Each tale, expertly told, brought me closer to understanding the strange relationship between the tabloid, and those who bravely worked under the iron fist or the owner. It also gave me a glimpse into days gone by, where strange occurrences fascinated readers through print and propelled inquiring minds to investigate the unknown.”
