John Keel was supposed to be moved on October 23 from the hospital, but didn’t get transferred to rehab until the 25th. He is receiving his cards and letters. His recovery from his heart attack that apparently occurred on Friday the 13th seems to be slow but nothing out of the ordinary.
Here’s some more news from Doug Skinner:
Greetings, Keel fans. I’m a friend of John’s. He’s recuperating nicely. He’s undergoing some physical therapy after his cardiac surgery, which is routine. He’s expected to be back home in a couple of weeks.
I visited him yesterday, and brought him his mail from his P.O. box. Loren has posted this elsewhere, but for those who want to reach him, he’s at P.O. Box 20024, N.Y., NY, 10025.
We chatted a bit about the ["Sci Fi Investigates" Mothman] show; he was contacted but chose not to participate. I didn’t see the Mothman special, so I had nothing to add.
Thanks for the website, Loren, and all the Cryptozoo News. Cheers, everyone!
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.
