Mothman: Evil Incarnate by Loren Coleman The tagline for Loren Coleman’s new book Mothman: Evil Incarnate is “The Unauthorized Companion to The Mothman Prophecies,” referring to the book written by John Keel and published in 1975. And that tagline sums up this book very well. Mothman: Evil Incarnate is by no means a stand-alone book. Rather, […]

Haunted Trails in New York and West Virginia

So, history! Unfortunately, not every ghost hunter out there approaches history with the reverence it deserves. And that’s why stories […]

Flying humanoid spotted in the UK

Flying Humanoid Puzzles U.K. Pilots

Ever since I was a wee lad reading and rereading all the books I could find at my local library on cryptozoology, I have been fascinated by tales of flying humanoids.
