Happy Season’s Greetings to all Cryptomundians. Thank you for another successful, thought-provoking year of writing about cryptids and more, and also trying to pull together the opening of the museum.
If you are in the Portland, Maine, area, for the holidays, stop by the International Cryptozoology Museum and say “hi.”
Remember too, add to your own personal collection all those things that people forgot to give you, by treating yourself to something cryptozoological….Memberships, Single Passes, Bigfoot Ornaments, Figurines, Autographed Books, Crypto Wonders, Museum Teeshirts, and more.
The perfect squeaky toy for your dog or you! And it’s named “Coleman.”
Write LColeman@maine.rr.com for mail orders on what limited items may still be available for upcoming your New Year’s Day party, birthday, wedding, and other surprise gift needs! It is never “off season” for cryptozoology gifts, especially ones to yourself. It helps support the museum.

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.
