True Giants: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive?

True Giants: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive? by Loren Coleman & Mark A. Hall I first got my review copy of True Giants: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive? a few months back, when it was originally released.

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State by Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck “As in all investigations in New Jersey, as elsewhere, it is best to approach your quest with an open mind, critically, skeptically, and patiently.” I suppose it’s fitting to start my review of Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious […]

But until recently, I had never read what most would say is the ultimate […]

Alien Agenda

The Field Guide to North American Hauntings

Lots of the famous hauntings in here, from Amityville, to the Winchester Mystery house, as well as lesser-known haunted places, such as the Conference House (a favorite of mine). Also, many of the entries have a related picture, to help you better visualize the spooky scenery.

Lots of good stuff in here. So many different, rarely heard of monsters, it’s really a treasure trove for those of us sick to death of reading about Ogopogo. Some of my personal favorites are the Grinning Man, the Wendigo, the Goatman and the Winsted Wildman.
