From the Amazon book description:

Discover the science of (not so) imaginary creatures

Adventures in Cryptozoology is the perfect resource for the explorer who loves Josh Gates’s Expedition Unknown and Cryptozoology A to Z.

Explore the world through its most unlikely creatures: Cryptozoology, the study of hidden, monstrous, and legendary animals, is truly the art of discovering the unknown. Richard Freeman, Zoological Director of Centre for Fortean Zoology, has explored the corners of the five continents on the search for creatures that many people believe are non-existent. In this book, he shares the exciting stories of his investigations of the Yeti, Mongolian Deathworm, Loch Ness Monster, Orang-Pendak, Ninki-Naka, and more.

The line between myth and reality may be more narrow than you think: Cryptozoologists throughout the years have studied unknown species of reptiles, lake and sea creatures, apes, and hominins. The science and history of this field of study includes examples of creatures that were once thought to be mythological, but that have since been proven to exist.

Our monsters, ourselves: The history of fabulous beasts and our searches for them is a history of the cultures of the world and the secrets we keep.

If you’re ready to begin your search for Sasquatch and learn to hunt monsters, Adventures in Cryptozoology is your guide. In these pages you’ll find:

  • Tales of mythical, extinct, and out-of-place creatures
  • Hints about Bigfoot and other ape-men
  • And tips for equipping your own cryptozoology adventure, including all the gear, field craft, and resources you’ll need to record your findings

About Richard Freeman

Richard Freeman is a full time cryptozoologist. He searches for and writes about unknown animals. The melodramatic may call him a monster hunter. He has hunted for creatures such as the yeti (a dark haired, giant, upright ape in North India), the Mongolian death worm (a much feared burrowing reptile of the Gobi), the giant anaconda (a monster constricting snake in South America), the ninki-nanka ( a dangerous dragon like beast from the swamps of West Africa), the almasty (a relic hominid in the Caucasus of Russia), orang-pendek (an upright walking ape in Indonesia), the naga (a giant, crested serpent in Indo-China) , the gul (a relic hominin from Tajikistan) and the Tasmanian wolf (a flesh eating marsupial in Tasmania).

He is the Zoological Director at the Centre for Fortean Zoology. This is the world’s only full time mystery animal research organization. It is based in North Devon

Richard is a massive fan of classic Doctor Who (1960s-70s), and a lover of weird fiction and horror.

Linda S. Godfrey On Her Book, “I Know What I Saw” | July 10, 2019

Tune in on July 10th for our interview with Linda S. Godfrey about her new book, “I Know What I Saw”

Wendy and June interview paranormal author, Linda S. Godfrey, about her new book, “I Know What I Saw: Modern-Day Encounters With Monsters Of New Urban Legends And Ancient Lore.”

About I Know What I Saw

Per the publisher, TarcherPerigee:

Which came first–the monster or the myth? Journalist Linda Godfrey investigates present-day encounters with mysterious creatures of old.

The monsters of ancient mythology, folklore, and more contemporary urban legend have long captured the popular imagination. While most people in America today relegate monsters to just that–our imaginations–we continue to be fascinated by the unknown. Linda Godfrey is one of the country’s leading authorities on modern-day monsters and has interviewed countless eyewitnesses to strange phenomena. Monsters evolve, taking on both new and familiar forms over time and across cultures. In this well-researched book, Godfrey explores uncanny encounters with werewolves, goatmen, Bigfoot, and more.

In more than twenty-five years spent “chasing” monsters, Godfrey has found that it often remains unclear whether the sightings are simply mistaken animals, hoaxes, or coincidence. When all the speculation is said and done, one question remains for fans and researchers: Are the creatures “real,” or are they entirely “other-world?” Godfrey suspects that it isn’t an either/or question–our reality operates on a scale from dense matter to realms the human eye cannot see. 

As Godfrey investigates unexplained phenomena, her search for answers will fascinate casual observers and enthusiasts alike.

I Know What I Saw” will be published on July 16, 2019.
