North Carolina resident and cryptozoologist Mark A. Hall has written a new 2005 book Lizardmen, about the seemingly bipedal reptiloids that have had some curious encounters with humans. These reports cross the investigative path of cryptozoologists, now and then, and have many people scratching their heads. Hall, based on his past writings on this subject in his journal Wonders, explores and extends his theories in this latest book.
It looks to be a volume with some intriguing and new material, as is to be expected from Hall’s intellectual works.
Here’s a peek inside, with a look at the chapter headings:
Chapter 1 – A Mystery at Blake’s Reserve
Chapter 2 – 1988 Was the Year of the Lizardman
Chapter 3 – Lizardmen of the Carolinas
Chapter 4 – Revealed: The Origin of Lizardmen
Chapter 5 – What the Indians Say About Lizardmen
Chapter 6 – More Lizardmen in Our Times
Chapter 7 – Those Incredible Tracks
Chapter 8 – A World of Lizardmen
Chapter 9 – The Lives of Lizardmen
Chapter 10 – The Lure of the Mermaid
Chapter 11 – The Mysterious Ones
Chapter 12 – The Lizardmen in Our Future
With the Creature of the Black Lagoon movie being remade (see my earlier blog entry on that), I guess we can say it may be an era of the Lizardmen returnth.
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.
