Overview

Folklore has always warned of hidden dangers lurking in the shadows, otherworldly beings who seek to steal that which parents hold most dear. In the first book dedicated solely to the subject, Joshua Cutchin traces this primal concern from antiquity to the modern era—beginning with worldwide tales of faeries, changelings, spirits, demons, and monsters, before examining more contemporary phenomena such as Sasquatch kidnappings, alien abductions, and mysterious disappearances in national parks. Folklore, medicine, science, and spirituality come together for a uniquely scholarly perspective on the thieves in the night.

“Joshua Cutchin‘s Thieves in the Night deserves a place on your bookshelf next to Keith Thompson’s Angels and Aliens and Jacques Vallee’s Passport to Magonia—a truly fascinating and darkly disturbing investigation into the predatory nature of fairies, aliens, and all the shadowy beings that live among us, lurking just outside our view.” — Richard Hatem, screenwriter of The Mothman Prophecies

“Joshua Cutchin has written a new masterwork. Fairy lore might seem quaint and outdated, but these fables are vital and alive. This is a magical book, and after reading it, you will walk anew in an enchanted world.” — Mike Clelland, author of The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee
