It did seem like time to brush the rust off that little corner of Cryptomundo. FYI. My biographical information at Cryptomundo has been updated, here. The bio details had not been changed since I joined Cryptomundo a few years ago.
I’m beginning to feel a gallery of all the comic book images that artists have created should be gathered in one collection and linked to that bio site. But I have to go on to the cryptozoo news today, and I just don’t have time for everything.
Here I am engaged in cryptoconchology, the study of the shelled hidden or unknown mollusks, such as this Yarmouth clam mascot, a branch of cryptomalacology, on July 12th, 2007.
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.
