Top Cryptozoology Books of 2013

Happy Holidays everyone!  Cryptozoo News / Loren Coleman has posted his list of Top Ten Cryptozoology Books of the Year.  I’m honored to have landed the #1 spot with my new book Lizard Man.  I must thank Anomalist Books for their commitment to publish excellent cryptozoology titles, including Karl Shuker’s Mirabilis which was chosen as #4.  Congratulations to my other colleagues and fellow Cryptomundo contributors that also made the list.  2013 was a year of great books, all deserving of praise.  Here’s a few of the highlights…
