Michel Raynal has passed along a translation about the initial appearance of a French publication of some note.
The first volume will be arriving this month.
The table of contents:
Michel Raynal informs me that the journal apparently has an interview in it with Heuvelmans, when he was living in Verlhiac, Dordogne, near Le Bugue village. Also, he thinks the account of the debate (mentioned in French above) is possibly when Heuvelmans went to Lausanne, a few years before he gave his archives to the Lausanne museum, during a meeting/debate on that occasion.
The editorial board of the new prestigious journal has been announced to be sociologist Pierre Lagrange, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, and cryptozoologist Michel Raynel, among others.
The second volume will be larger.
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.
