The Paranormal & Bigfoot

The third and final part of the interview that the Blogsquatcher recently did with me on the issue of Bigfoot and the paranormal has just been posted online and can be found here.

We cover a lot of ground relative to the British Bigfoot, too.

And as I say in the interview with respect to the controversy surrounding the question of whether or not Bigfoot has paranormal origins:

"I never judge people on their beliefs, because I don't -- none of us has the answers. But I would say that, regardless of whether or not bigfoot researchers agree with me or not, I think the one thing they most would agree with me about, is that at some point, pretty much every bigfoot researcher has come across at least one case of the type that I'm talking about. I would defy you to find a bigfoot researcher who has never found a case that has even the smallest aspect of weirdness to it. I think in everybody's files you're going to find one like that. Either it was seen near a Native American burial ground, or it had glowing eyes, or something weird happened."

A Crypto-Interview

Yesterday, fellow-Fortean, author and good friend Marie Jones interviewed me about my cryptozoological research.

We covered a lot of ground, including my research into werewolves, phantom black-dogs, the issue of giant birds in the US, the legends of still-surviving mammoths, what drives me to continue my crypto-research, why I think that at least some of the unknown "animals" in our world have paranormal origins, and much more.

The interview has just been posted to the Para-Explorers site that Marie runs with Larry Flaxman, and can be found right here. I hope it entertains and informs you!

The Mabusscarab: Online Chat

At 7PM next Wednesday, 27 August, I'll be doing an online chat right here.

Me and the Paranormal Bigfoot

A few days ago, I was interviewed by The Blogsquatcher on the controversial issue of Bigfoot and the paranormal, a subject that features heavily in my new book There's Something in the Woods (Anomalist Books). We delved deeply into the issue of strange phenomena associated with Bigfoot; as well as the surprisingly large number of reports of the so-called "British Bigfoot." The Blogsquatcher has just posted the first-part of the interview on-line, and which can be found at this link.

The Mass Monster Mash

On Saturday October 18, I'll be speaking at the annual Mass Monster Mash gig on the subject of Bigfoot in Britain.

Here's all the details of the event, location, website details, price, and much more.

Check it out if you're in the area; it looks like it will be a great event!

MASS MONSTER MASH Paranormal Infotainment that brings the fear back to Halloween!


Five Outstanding Researchers Set To Speak On Paranormal PhenomenaWatertown, MA -- When darkness falls on Saturday, the 18th of October, 2008, five experts will speak about unexplained phenomena at the Hibernian Hall in Watertown, Massachusetts.

The topics of discussion will include Mothman, Weird Massachusetts, Haunted Baseball, Phantom Hitchhikers, the Loch Ness Monster 75th Anniversary, the Bridgewater Triangle and Bigfoot in England! It's time for the third annual "Mass Monster Mash", New England's premiere paranormal conference!

Esteemed cryptozoologist and popular author Loren Coleman will present his detailed research and chronology from his book Mothman and Other Curious Encounters of the incredible Mothman sightings, a series of odd encounters with a winged humanoid that took place in 1966 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Some feel that this "flap" indirectly caused several fatalities, including a massive bridge collapse. Loren will refer to the hit movie The Mothman Prophecies and give a current assessment and perspective of one of the classic historical cryptozoological mysteries of our time. He may even defer to the "Houston Batman" incident as well as the "Lawndale Thunderbird". Coleman, the world's greatest living paranormal researcher, will provide unique insight into his research of this unexplained incident that rattled an Appalachian community 32 years ago. As he will be making a rare Boston appearance, he will be available to sign copies of his books, including his culture-changing masterpiece Mysterious America, considered by many to be the seminal book of cryptozoology. It was Coleman who dubbed the anomalous area in Southeastern Massachusetts as the Bridgewater Triangle, which was prominently featured at the 2007 Mass Monster Mash along with Loren's presentation about the "Dover Demon". He also created Cryptomundo, the premiere cryptozoology web site on the World Wide Web.A rising star - and arguably one of the most versatile paranormal authors in the world today - will be speaking for the second time at the 2008 Mass Monster Mash.

Writer Jeff Belanger will once again dazzle the audience with some of his classic legends. Belanger is widely recognized as the most prolific author working in ghost research today. A frequent guest on Rob McConnell's radio show the X-Zone, Belanger is an eloquent speaker who articulates the most chilling accounts of alleged ghost and poltergeist activity. His web site Ghost Village is one of the most popular ghost activity and research portals on the Internet. Jeff's lecture will be entitled "Weird Massachusetts". No, he won't be talking about the state's liberal politics or moral promiscuity. He'll tackle some of the Bay State's greatest paranormal mysteries in its 350-year history. He will be selling his vast array of titles that encompass poltergeist activity such as "The Ghost Files: Paranormal Encounters, Discussion, and Research from the Vaults of".

Another prolific author, paranormal expert, government agitator and professional monster hunter is Nick Redfern. Nick was born in Great Britain and now resides in the United States. He has appeared on more than 60 TV shows to promote his numerous books (including the Sci-Fi Channel). He has traveled to Puerto Rico to search for the legendary Chupacabra and he has appeared on MSNBC with Keith Olbermann. He has lectured at a variety of conferences, including the Laughlin UFO Congress (in 1998 and 2001); the Mutual UFO Network Conference in 2004; the Aztec UFO Conference in 2003; the Texas Bigfoot Research Conference in 2004; at numerous events for the British-based UFO Magazine between 1997 and 2000 (now closed); and at the UFO Crash Retrieval Conference in Las Vegas (in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006). His many book titles include Three Men Seeking Monsters, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter, and his newest title There's Something In The Woods. As it has always been traditional for the Mass Monster Mash to have a bigfoot element (Stan Gordon in 2006 and Don Keating in 2007), Nick's lecture at the Mass Monster Mash will be entitled "Man Monkey: In Search of the British Bigfoot".

Dan Gordon first experienced the magic of Fenway Park in the summer of 1975 when his father took him to his first game. With a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Gordon studied global baseball culture in Japan, the Domincan Republic, Cuba and Nicaragua. His writings on baseball have appeared in the Providence Journal, Fort Worth Star, San Juan Star, NINE, Elysian Fields Quarterly and Scribners Encyclopedia of American Lives. Gordon recently published the popular Cape Encounters: Contemporary Cape Cod Ghost Stories. His lecture will be the same title as his newest book: Haunted Baseball. He'll talk about such tales as: The historic Spring Training ballpark in St. Petersburg, where Babe Ruth and his teammates still roam the field, the ghost encounters at Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, and Dodgers Stadium; the beloved Cleveland Indians trainer said to have revisited the team in the form of a seagull and eerie player stories from road-trip hotels they insist are haunted.

The Loch Ness Monster will be having its 75th birthday celebration at the Mass Monster Mash. "Nessie" came to the public's attention on June 5th, 1933 when a young maidservant named Margaret Munro supposedly observed the creature for about 20 minutes at about 6:30 am. She spotted it on shore from about 200 yards and described it as having elephant-like skin, a long neck, a small head and two short forelegs or flippers. The sighting ended when the creature re-entered the water. Although sightings of the creature on land around the loch reputedly date back to the sixth century, modern interest in the monster was sparked by a sighting on July 22nd, 1933 when George Spicer and his wife saw 'a most extraordinary form of animal' cross the road in front of their car. They described the creature as having a large body (about 4 feet high and 25 feet long), with a long, narrow neck, slightly thicker than an elephant's trunk and as long as the 10 to 12 foot width of the road; the neck had a number of undulations in it. They saw no limbs because of a dip in the road obscuring the animal's lower portion. It lurched across the road towards the loch 20 yards away, leaving only a trail of broken undergrowth in its wake. And finally, in August of that same year a motorcyclist named Arthur Grant claimed to have nearly hit the creature while approaching Abriachan on the north-eastern shore, at about 1 am on a moonlit night. Grant saw a small head attached to a long neck; the creature saw him and crossed the road back into the loch. Grant dismounted and followed it to the loch, but only saw ripples.

There will be a tribute to Scott Norman of Cryptosafari, a classy cryptozoologist and friend to the Mass Monster Mash, who suddenly passed away this year. Artist Bill Rebsamen has created a wonderful portrayal of Scott's work. Scott was lucky enough to encounter a Pterosaur during one of his expeditions. He also searched for the legendary Mokele-mbembe.

Back again as a co-host at the Mass Monster Mash will be Matt Moniz. Matt has over 20 years experience investigating paranormal phenomena. He has a "Forrest Gump"-type litany of involvement with historical UFO, ghost and paranormal case investigations and has even tried to pick up a phantom hitchhiker! Matt will chat specifically about that legendary entity, namely the Red-Headed Hitchhiker of Route 44. As a chemist, Matt analyzed soil samples from the famed "Bentwaters Incident" and was acknowledged accordingly in the book “Left at East Gate” by Larry Warren and Peter Robbins. He will be bringing soil samples from that area where an alleged UFO landing took place 27 years ago. Matt was also featured in the popular books “Witnessed” by Budd Hopkins, and “Glimpses of Other Realities” by Linda Moulton Howe. Matt will be reporting live from the Mash for the hit fortean radio show Spooky Southcoast that is hosted by Tim Weisberg and Matt Costa.

Some other special guests will be on hand for the Mash.

Christopher Balzano, who is a staple at the Mass Monster Mash, is an expert on paranormal phenomena in New England, director of the "Mass Paranormal Crossroads", author of the book Dark Woods and a recent recording artist. Chris will be on hand (he lives in Florida now) to meet and greet the conference attendees. Chris has also written about the Dover Demon case and is a collector of urban legends, such as the "Red-Headed Hitchhiker of Route 44", Ghosts of the Bridgewater Triangle, Ghostly Adventures, "Pukwudgies" and "Killer Clowns". Balzano has spent countless hours researching the Bridgewater Triangle. His latest book is Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting.

Tim Binnall is the producer of the Binnall of America Audio Podcast and webmaster of the very popular internet portal Binnall of America that deals with "esoteric" phenomena. Tim is a webmaster for Coast to Coast with George Noory and he will be back to meet-and-greet the speakers and attendees while again serving as the Monster Mash Ambassador. He was a vital participant in last year's conference (and recognized as such with an award) and his company was enjoyed by many.

Film producer Aaron Cadieux may be on hand as well. In 2006, he screened his film "Inside The Bridgewater Triangle" at the Monster Mash and received critical acclaim. He is recognized as one of New England's up-and-coming film producers and has just released his latest documentary "The First Patriots", dedicated to King Philip's War.

Chris Pittman, a Massachusetts folklorist, paranormal investigator and a recent recording artist is considered by many to be the foremost authority on the Bridgewater Triangle. His extensive exploration of this anomalous area, research into the Dover Demon and encounters with black helicopters make him a fascinating and enigmatic guest. His brief lectures at last year's Monster Mash and Mass UFO Show were riveting. Both he and Chris Balzano may be on hand to autograph their CD entitled "Mysterious Bridgewater Triangle".Joining the Mash once again may be defending Monster Mash trivia champions (and the "belle and beau of the ball") Arlene Nicholson and Thomas D'Agostino, author of the books Haunted Rhode Island, Haunted New Hampshire and Haunted Massachusetts. Arlene and Thomas (who is recognized by his peers as the most comprehensive New England ghost historian) will be available for questions during a book signing.

Ned, the hyperactive janitor-at-large from Paraforce (played by comedian Steve Russo) will once again disrupt the proceedings. We are hoping that he limits his use of Homer Formby or at least uses it in a responsible manner with proper ventilation.

This event was created and produced by philanthropist and paranormal gadfly John Horrigan. Horrigan has a vast history of paranormal exploration and is considered by many to be a leading popular historian and public speaker.

The Mass Monster Mash is a celebration of Northeastern legends and folklore, using lecture, film, exhibits and trivia dedicated to strange occurrences with a mission to entertain and captivate anyone who is looking for spirited pre-Halloween fun! Doors open at 5:30 PM with the program beginning promptly at 6:00 PM and concluding by 10:30 PM.

Also, this may be your only chance to pick up the "The Bridgewater Triangle" CD that was produced by Steve Russo and created by event producer John Horrigan, Chris Pittman and Christopher Balzano. The Mass Monster Mash is accessible by public transportation. Admission is $25.00. Tickets are limited and will not be sold at the door.For more information: or call 781-916-9223 or log on to

Alien Worlds

The new issue of Stuart Miller's Alien Worlds magazine includes a 4-page article from me titled UFOs, Crop Circles & Cryptids: What the Hell is Going On? The subject matter is my new book, There's Something in the Woods. And, in the pages of the article, I delve into the links between weird creatures and Crop Circles; as well as some of the stranger, fringe-based crypto stories I have uncovered.

The Blogsquatcher

Yesterday, I was interviewed extensively by the Blogsquatcher on the subject of Bigfoot and the paranormal. He has already posted a pre-publication piece on the interview - which can be found here - and you can expect to see the whole interview (possibly spread over several days) posted at his blog soon.

Darkness Radio

I'll be discussing my cryptozoological research on Darkness Radio this coming Sunday night from around 9PM Central Time onwards. For more details, see:

Dr. Shuker's Casebook

Just recently, fellow-author and seeker-of-the-strange Karl Shuker asked me if I would write the Foreword to his new book, Dr. Shuker's Casebook, and to which I quickly answered "Yes!"

Well, I can tell you that Karl's new book is one not to be missed - at all. The official publication date of the book is this Saturday; however, as I won't be around at the weekend, I figured I'd go ahead and give Karl's book the publicity it deserves a couple of days early.

And the best way to do that is to copy below for you my Foreword to the book that will give you a good indication of the many and varied stories that it contains.

So, here it is: my Foreword to Dr. Shuker's Casebook

Whether it’s due to the fact that we both hail from the mighty and majestic West Midlands (oh yes, it is, I assure you!), or simply that he is a damned good researcher and writer (or both!), I always look forward to a new book from Karl Shuker; and this one most definitely does not disappoint.

And so when Karl asked me if I would write the Foreword for his new book, I quickly said that yes, indeed I would.Whereas pretty much everything Karl has published so far has been on cryptozoology and weird and wonderful animals, Dr. Shuker’s Casebook is a little different. Yes, it is full to the brim with tales of strange beasts; however, Karl also delves into other areas of Forteana with which he is not generally associated.

This, however, is a very good thing, since we get to learn about a variety of other mysteries that are of interest to Karl. And, indeed, there are enough of them to fill Birmingham’s glorious Rotunda and Bull-Ring several times over!

So, what do you get for your hard-earned pennies?Well, I will start with those highly unusual, and almost legendary, winged cats. Karl provides excellent historical background on these unusual critters, carefully separates fact from fiction, and legend from reality, and gives the reader a fine study of this peculiar phenomenon. Even if you’re only vaguely familiar with the winged-cat controversy, this is one you won’t want to miss.

And what, I hear you ask, about the mystery animals of Senegambia? Encompassing hairy man-beasts, giant bat-like entities and much more, they collectively make great food for thought as Karl reveals the strange stories of some little-known and elusive beasts of a distinctly exotic and far-off land.

Sky-Beasts is an excellent chapter and one that addresses the theories of researchers such as Trevor James Constable, who suggested the idea that bizarre life-forms might very well soar high in the skies above us, and may perhaps be responsible for at least some UFO reports. Today, Constable’s theories are sadly forgotten by many within Ufology, and so it’s highly refreshing to see Karl turn his attention to a subject and a theory that perhaps has implications for both the UFO controversy and cryptozoology.

Merfolk – strangely humanlike entities that are said to roam the world’s oceans and seas - also feature prominently in Karl’s book. Of course, any mention of mermaids inevitably provokes furious debate. Fortunately, Karl knows a great deal about this topic and is able to discuss the matter in a fashion that both informs and intrigues. As for how the mysterious Aquatic Ape fits into this story, well…I’ll leave that up to you to find out.

The famous ‘Green Children’ of Suffolk’s Woolpit also come under the Shuker microscope, something that leads to such questions as: were they feral children, the denizens of the fairy world, or – if such a thing were possible – something even stranger?

Tulpas – creatures of the mind, thought-forms, or however you want to term them – are a particular obsession of mine. And to see that Karl has devoted a whole chapter of his book to this particularly controversial topic was a fine surprise for me. If you ever mused upon all the fuss that the Tulpa issue provokes, Karl provides the perfect study of the subject, and a look at some of the more significant tales of a distinctly mind-monster kind.

Flying humanoids such as Batsquatch, Mothman, Owlman, Britain’s little-known Monkey-Bird, and the Flying Man of Russia also have pride of place. The thorny (or should that be horny?) issue of unicorns is dissected, as are frog-falls, ball-lightning, will o’ the wisp, earthquake lights, various other aerial puzzles, and ghosts and specters.

Then there are those weird messages from space: manuscripts, papers, artifacts and even Joe Simonton’s famous faerie pancakes. Doppelgangers: they’re here too; as are the mysteries of Easter Island, the wonderfully-named Vegetable Man, the Monster of Glamis, and menacing, spectral werewolves.

In other words, Dr. Shuker’s Casebook is a fantastic and rich collection of oddities that will fascinate everyone with a thing for Forteana. And now, turn the page, turn off the lights and by the flicker of an old candle and a full moon, enjoy the book!

To learn more about Karl and his new book, here's his website address. And here are the Amazon US and Amazon UK addresses where you can purchase the book right now.

The "Hairy Hands" of Dartmoor

The new issue of Taps Paramagazine includes an article from me on a British mystery of truly weird and disturbing proportions: that of the so-called "Hairy Hands."

As I say in the article:

"From the windswept moorlands of Devonshire, England (where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s epic Sherlock Holmes novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles was set) comes a truly chilling story of a strange and deadly phenomenon that gripped the area in the early years of the 20th Century and that became known to one and all as the Hairy-Hands. And as will later become acutely apparent, it may be a phenomenon that has made a recent return to the area.

"It was around 1910 that the weird saga began – on what is today known as the B3212 road, and which can be found in the vicinity of the Dartmoor locales of Postbridge and Two Bridges. Somewhat disturbingly, a hairy, monstrous and unknown force would time and again violently lash out at unwary passing drivers, and which, in one case, reportedly even resulted in a tragic death for an unfortunate road-user.

"In most of the cases, the victims of the diabolical phenomenon reported large, hairy, 'disembodied hands' manifesting out of thin air, firmly grabbing the steering wheel of their vehicles – or the handle-bars of their bikes – and unsurprisingly striking complete terror into their hearts; something which invariably resulted in them being violently forced off the country road."

Whether the Hairy Hands are somehow linked to spectral British Bigfoot or werewolf-like entities, or if they are a completely different phenomenon, is a matter of ongoing debate. As I note in the article, however, encounters with the Hairy Hands are still on-going - even as late as January of this year.

The diabolical mystery is still among us...

DFW MUFON - A Lecture

I'll be lecturing on the subject of my new book, There's Something in the Woods, at the monthly meeting of the Dallas-Fort Worth Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) on Sunday, September 7. Here's the details for those who may want to attend.

Aztec, Crashed UFOs and More

I was recently interviewed for a new edition of Frank Scully's old-time UFO book, Behind the Flying Saucers, which was the first title to address the controversy surrounding the alleged UFO crash at Aztec, New Mexico in 1948.

Here's the Amazon link for those who might want to buy the new edition of Scully's book. And here's what Tim Green Beckley (who is republishing the book) has to say about it:

"The CONSPIRACY JOURNAL is very proud to offer this expanded version of perhaps the most seminal book in the history of the unexplained . . . a case that now stands right beside the UFO crash at Roswell, MN for its credibility and veracity. For years the Aztec case was spurned by serious researchers who did not have access to all the information now available on the crash. . . In addition to reprinting the entire, unabridged, text to the rare 50s Scully book (reset in an easy to read, 'large print,' large format edition) journalist Sean Casteel has dug deep to provide the reader with an updated account of what really happened outside this isolated desert town near the Four Corners. His up to date research on Aztec includes material supplied by such outstanding researchers as NICK REDFERN -- STANTON FRIEDMAN -- ART CAMPBELL -- SCOTT and SUZANNE RAMSEY." --Tim Beckley, Conspiracy Journal.

Tim continues: "AN IMPORTANT RE-EXAMINATION OF AN HISTORICAL UFO CASE! - - - Were 16 alien bodies recovered from a dome-shaped device that crashed near the town of Aztec, New Mexico circa 1948? . . . Why does the FBI continue to withhold 200 pages of classified material on the case for alleged 'national security reasons?' . . . Was the incident covered up with a camouflaged 'front story' presided over by con men and scam artists, who were perhaps in the government's 'back pocket?' . . . Did President Eisenhower make contact with aliens around the same time, thus adding weight to this and other UFO crash cases?"

Paranormal Radio

On August 14, from 8.30PM to 11.00PM Central Time, I'll be speaking about my cryptozoological research - and my There's Something in the Woods book - on Paranormal Radio with Captain Jack.

Sunday, August 3, 2008

2013:The End or the Beginning?

My good friend Marie Jones has a new book out right now, 2013: The End of Days or a New Beginning?, the subject matter of which is the controversy surrounding the Mayan calendar, which is due to end on December 21, 2012.

Marie's book includes a 2-page essay from me on my thoughts pertaining to the data and ideas contained in its packed, 288-pages.

For anyone and everyone interested in the whole "2012" controversy, Marie's book is a must read!

The Chupacabras, Crashed UFOs & More...

Just recently, my good mate Jon Downes (0f the British-based Center for Fortean Zoology) published his new book, The Island of Paradise.

The book is a full-length study of the expedition that Jon and me undertook in 2004 to seek out the Chupacabras of Puerto Rico.

As he was writing the book, Jon asked me if I would contribute my own diary-style entries to its pages, and naturally I said "Of course!"

And, as a result, you can find them at the end of each chapter of The Island of Paradise.

If you're into strange creatures, blood-sucking vampires, crashed UFOs and more, this is definitely the book for you!

Texas Mysteries...

I'll be lecturing on an assortment of Texas-based mysteries (including UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot, Goat-Men, haunted houses and more) at the Dallas Public Library on Tuesday October 14 from 7PM to 8PM. More data closer to the date...

The Mass Monster Mash

On Saturday October 18, you can hear me speak about (a) the British Bigfoot and (b) Men in Black reports at the annual Boston-based Mass Monster Mash gig. Here's the details.

The Chupacabras in "UFO"

I've now been on two expeditions to Puerto Rico in search of the vampire-like Chupacabras; first in 2004 (with fellow cryptozoologist Jon Downes), and then in 2005 with Canadian film-maker Paul Kimball. I give my thoughts on the controversy in the new issue of UFO Magazine in my regular column: View From A Brit.

Tunguska Lecture

On the weekend of November 7-9, I'll be lecturing at Ryan Wood's annual UFO Crash Retrieval Conference on the controversy surrounding the 100-year-old Tunguska mystery of 1908. For those wanting information on times, location, etc., here's all the details.

The CIA & Noah's Ark: A Gig

On September 6, I'll be speaking at the Ancient Earth Mysteries conference at the Hilton Dallas Lincoln Center in Dallas, Texas. The subject of my lecture: the CIA's secret search for the remains of Noah's Ark. Truly a real-life conspiratorial mystery of Indiana Jones-style proportions! If you want to know what it's all about, here's the details.

World of Weird

This coming Wednesday night, I'll be on World of Weird radio talking about my new book, There's Something in the Woods. Here's the link for those who may want to listen in.

Beckley's Books...

From time to time, I do some writing for Tim Beckley's Global Communications company. Just recently, I've written the introductions for his two latest titles: Mystic Utopian Supermen; and Mind Controlled Sex Slaves and the CIA.

There's Something in the Woods...

Anomalist Books have just published my latest title, There's Something in the Woods, which focuses on such matters as Bigfoot (in Britain and in the US); Crop Circles; big-cats on the loose; crashed UFOs; werewolves; mystery winged things such as Mothman and the Thunderbird of Native American lore; ghostly black-dogs, and much more. Here's the link.

Tunguska in "Paranormal"

Check out Britain's newly-re-launched Paranormal Magazine. It includes a "100th anniversary" article from me on the Tunguska mystery of 1908. Here's the link to the magazine.

Monsters of the Underground

The new issue of Fate magazine includes an article from me on mysteries of the London Underground tube-system, including encounters deep in the tunnels with Bigfoot-type entities; big-cats; ghosts and much more...

Karl Shuker's Casebook

A couple of weeks ago, fellow Brit (in fact, he lives only about 2 miles from where I grew up), cryptozoologist, and author Dr. Karl Shuker invited me to write the Introduction for his new book: Dr. Shuker's Casebook, which I have now completed. This is a great study of a whole range of Fortean puzzles that I'll tell you more about closer to publication.

Mothman - The Latest

Andy Colvin is the author of two excellent books on the Mothman controversy: The Mothman's Photographer and The Mothman's Photographer II. Andy recently asked me if I would write the Foreword for the third installment: The Mothman's Photographer III. Since Andy has a first-class approach to the subject matter, and is a key player in the Mothman controversy, I was pleased to say "Yes!" I'll keep you informed when the book is published.

Coast to Coast - Tonight

For those who may be interested, I’ll be on Coast to Coast tonight through the early hours of Monday morning talking about my new book, There’s Something in the Woods.

The times are 11PM to 2AM West Coast Time; 1AM to 4AM Central Time; and 2AM to 5AM East Coast Time.
The information on the show at the Coast to Coast website can be found here and here.
Much of the discussion will be on cryptozoology (such as reports of Bigfoot in both the UK and the United States; the werewolves of Britain and Texas; lake-monsters; giant winged-things such as Mothman and the Thunderbirds; ghostly black dogs; and big-cats on the loose); as well as such issues as the Aztec, New Mexico UFO crash story of 1948; an alleged UFO crash in Texas in 1964; and Crop Circles.
