Have you got a copy of the 'Haunting Of Cashens Gap' by Price Keybored? I'm led to believe it's a bit of a rarity these days?

All the best,

I'd love to own a copy of the book Enderfay, but as you say it is indeed quite a rarity these days. I believe someone on Gef's Facebook fan page put a copy on Ebay recently with a starting price of around £100 if I remember correctly, not sure if it was sold or not though.

Would have been tempted to put in a bid myself if I could afford it! Smile

I saw a reference to a copy a long while back, but it was offered at a silly price! Laugh!! (Can't recall what it was now, exactly?)

I'm sure there is a copy in a box in a loft somewhere, which will inevitably turn up in a charity shop for 10p one day!!! Laugh, laugh!!!

Re. Gef references - I've just looked at Prices 'Poltergeist' volume and found only two incredibly brief mentions..... one of which gives the appraisal 'unconvincing talking mongoose'!! Laugh!! In the book 'Harry Price Ghost Hunter' by Paul Tabori, it seems (from the index) the case wasn't even worth mentioning!?!

All the best to thee,

Nick

One thread should be enough for old Gef.

An event in Russel Square, London:
Quote:
I AM THE FIFTH DIMENSION!

AN EVENING WITH GEF THE TALKING MONGOOSE AND FRIENDS

WEDS 19TH MARCH, 7:30PM


TICKETS £5 ADVANCE (CLICK HERE) £6.50 ON THE DOOR

FEATURING BRIAN CATLING, TONY GRISONI AND CHRISTOPHER JOSIFFE.

What haunted a remote Isle of Man farmhouse in the early 1930s? Was it a spirit? A miniature man-weasel, or a projection from a disturbed family’s collective psyche?

The tale of Gef the talking mongoose is one of the strangest in all the annals of paranormal research, and remains unsolved to this day.

Tonight, we feature a presentation by Christopher Josiffe, the world’s foremost authority on the story, alongside a screening of Vanished! A Video Seance (1999), a unsettling impressionistic account of the events. The film will be followed by a Q&A with writer-directors Brian Catling and Toni Grisioni.
