20. John Macklin’s Warped Stranger Destinies
All the theories continued to reinforce the probability that Ralph and Williams’ account was nothing more than folklore and all it did was inspire more folktales.
In 1965, Irish writer, John Macklin, published his book Strange Destinies which is remarked to be “a corruption of the original”, as told by Ralph and William. The story takes place in 1887 when field workers spot two green children wearing metallic clothing near a cave.
The children are taken under the care of a ‘Ricardo de Calno’ where they also refuse to eat and the rest of the story is an echo of Ralph and Williams’ account.
