Thieves in the Night

Joshua Cutchin. Thieves in the Night: A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions. Anomalist Books (June 2018)
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.
