>The Master Otter in Scotland

>Enthusiastic Irish cryptozoologist Gary Cunningham wrote an article for me on the so-called Master Otter and other cryptids from the Emerald Isle when I was editing Paranormal Magazine. This strange, savage lutrid is one of Ireland’s best known mystery beasts, but Dr Karl Shuker has now unearthed some reports, one dating back to the 16th century, which suggest that the critter has also been encountered in Scotland. Read his fascinating article on his blog, here: http://karlshuker.blogspot.com/2011/02/irish-master-otter-in-scotland.html?spref=tw

I am the editor of Uncanny UK (www.uncannyuk.com), a website devoted to British ghosts and folklore. I am the former editor of Paranormal Magazine and the author five books on Welsh folklore. Just launched Apparition Developments, first product of which is Ghost Finder London - an app plotting 300 haunted sites in London for iPhone. I'm a highly experienced journalist and corporate copywriter. I'm an enthusiast on the subjects of UK folklore, the supernatural and antiquities and am fond of old horror and sci-fi movies, cult TV such as Dr Who and I collect Victorian/Edwardian magazines. I also enjoy weird art and macabre literature by the likes of M R James, E F Benson, Algernon Blackwood, W Hope-Hodgson, H P Lovecraft etc. I live in North Wales, which is a very spooky place.
