Do you know the names of any new cryptozoology titles forthcoming for 2013?
From Anomalist Books comes a new title by Karl Shuker, entitled Mirabilis: A Carnival of Cryptozoology, Zooformia, and (Very) Unnatural History.
Chad Arment over at Coachwhip Publications is producing Volume 3 of the BioFortean Review.
One book next year, being released in paperback on August 1, 2013, will be my forthcoming Monsters of Massachusetts from Stackpole Books.
From the people that brought you the Junior Skeptic pieces debunking the Thetis Lake Monster and others, comes this compilation…
Abominable Science! Origins of the Yeti, Nessie, and other Famous Cryptids by Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero, is due in hardback on July 23, 2013.
Monster Files: A Look Inside Government Secrets and Classified Documents on Bizarre Creatures and Extraordinary Animals by Nick Redfern, will be released in paperback on May 22, 2013.
You have to love the trend in cryptofiction where the author and publisher are not afraid of the word “cryptozoological.” The first in a series is Serpente Gigante: A Paul and Sarah Manhart Cryptozoological Adventure by J. Allen Denelek, due out February 15, 2013.
Please send me word of others you know about, and a review copy to Loren Coleman, P.O. Box 360, Portland, ME 04112.
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.
