My good buddy Ken Gerhard has a new book coming out later this year entitled Encounters with Flying Humanoids: Mothman, Manbirds, Gargoyles, and Other Winged Beasts.
I wonder what he will have to say about the incident in the following videos?
Here it is! The cover for my new book on flying humanoid creatures… to be published by Llewellyn this year! The most comprehensive compendium ever dedicated solely to this enduring mystery. What an honor to have Karl Shuker write the foreword… in addition to original sketches by several talented artists, including Linda Godfrey!Ken Gerhard
A strange creature with gigantic, blood-red embers for eyes crept out of the dark in West Virginia. Dozens of witnesses reported seeing the winged beast—later identified as the Mothman—take flight, chasing cars at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
Cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard has traveled the world collecting evidence on the Mothman, the Owlman, the Van Meter Creature, the Valkyrie of Voltana, the Houston Batman, and other strange “bird people” that have been sighted throughout history. Packed with famous historical cases and dozens of chilling first-person accounts, this is the first book to focus exclusively on flying humanoids—a wide array of airborne entities that seem to “feed off our fear like psychic vampires.”
