The giant New York publisher Simon and Schuster has released this following brief announcement:
“Bigfoot! will be released on November 24, 2009 in eBook.”
“All indications are that 2010 will be The Year of The eBook,” reports a publishing insider.
The Kindle edition of Bigfoot! will sell for $9.99 & includes wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet.
The print version of the book, Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, first published by Simon and Schuster in 2003, will still be available as a paperbound book, as far as I know. I hope. (I would suggest, if you enjoy your books as physical objects, buy them now, while they last.)
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
