Wireless Flash – FlashNews has taken on a new public persona, as evidenced by a story they have just published entitled “New Monsters Encroach on Bigfoot’s Turf.” (Routinely before, FlashNews was a subscription only service for radio station news directors, mostly. Now the subscription gives access to interviewee contact info, but the stories themselves are now visible to the public, with photos.)
In today’s story, FlashNews quoted me as saying:
No matter what new creatures are discovered, though, Coleman says nothing can shake the public’s fascination with “celebrity cryptids” like Bigfoot, Nessie, Mothman, and the Chupacabra[s]. He runs the world’s only International Cryptozoology Museum out of Portland, Maine, entirely dedicated to the famous monsters and their peers.
I was wondering what cryptids are the favorites of Cryptomundo readers? I pondered, after I said that, if there has been any shift in what cryptids are the “celebrity cryptids” among readers here?
What about it? Which ones do you like, personally? Leave your reply in the comment section below. Thank you.
Your assistance is still important in supporting the museum. Please…
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.
