Heads up, for those interested. How can online sellers afford to stash so much off the price? If you’ve been looking for this, get it cheap now.
For some reason, Amazon.com is having a super discount sale ~ with one-third off the list price ~ on Cryptozoology A to Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras, and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature (1999).
Right now, Cryptozoology A to Z is selling for $10.20 US, and ranked as:
#2 in Books > Reference > Dictionaries & Thesauruses > Science
#10 in Books > Professional & Technical > Professional Science > Biological Sciences > Zoology
#2 in Books > Reference > Encyclopedias > Science Fiction & Fantasy
Considering it is a nonfiction science book (not science fiction), that’s great.
With over 140 cryptids and 60 cryptozoologists profiled in the book, it remains the most accessible, inexpensive handbook and encyclopedia on cryptozoology.
I’m delighted that Amazon has decided to have this fire sale.
Meanwhile, Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America (2003) is 20% off and ranked as
#5 in Books > Outdoors & Nature > Ecology > Animals > Apes & Monkeys.
Hope there’s some cryptozoology books under your tree this year.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
