Let all good women and men across the land, hear the call to the London Fortean Society meeting, yee noted:
27 September 2012 – The Natural Historie of the European Werewolf
The werewolf is a common horror motif, but what did people during the witchhunt of sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe really mean when they accused someone of “lycanthropy”? An evening discussing films, history and analysis at which we will find out who is worse – man or beast. Deborah Hyde blogs on “Superstition, Religion and Being Human.”
Each LFS evening begins with the Fortmanteau, our monthly summary of strange news stories.
London Fortean Society meets on the last Thursday of each month except July and

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.
