My book Monsters of New Jersey has to be delayed to 2011. Sometimes even authors can suffer from internal resistance to forces too sinister for words, and from being overwhelmed with work.
Here is some of the publication copy from the publisher, Stackpole. And the cover.
MONSTERS OF NEW JERSEY
Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State
$12.95, PB, 978-0-8117-3596-4, Available 2011.
Bizarre beasts stalk New Jersey, from down the shore to the creepy Pine Barrens and even in many of the bustling cities. This book presents stories of the best known of the Garden State’s cryptid population.
Check back in a year.
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.
