I’m proud to announce that my new book, Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster, is now available from Anomalist Books.

As with my previous book, The Beast of Boggy Creek, I offer an in-depth look at one of the most bizarre and hair-raising cases of an unknown creature.  During my research trip to Bishopville – and to Scape Ore Swamp itself – I discovered that there’s much more to the story than I first realized… and much more than meets the eye regarding the media’s portrayal of this modern-day ‘creature from the black lagoon.’  All in all, it made for a fascinating research trip and resulted in a book that I think everyone will truly enjoy.

Synopsis:

From the swamplands near Bishopville, South Carolina, come reports of a seven-foot-tall, scaly humanoid creature the locals call the “Lizard Man.” Over the years, the creature has been seen by numerous witnesses, including a teenager who claimed it attacked him one night near a remote area called Scape Ore Swamp. The young man’s testimony and physical evidence was so compelling, it not only launched a serious investigation by the local sheriff’s office but an all-out monster hunt that drew hundreds of people to the small town.

This real-life “creature from black lagoon” has inspired major national news coverage, even a call from the famous CBS news anchor, Dan Rather, as he and the rest of the world clamored to know more about Bishopville’s elusive monster. The case is often mentioned in books, websites, and television shows, but the full story has never been told… until now. This book provides unprecedented documentation for one of the most bizarre and hair-raising cases of an unknown creature. The witnesses are convinced they’ve seen it, and the local law officials are backing them up. This is their story.

Follow Lyle Blackburn, author of the bestselling book The Beast of Boggy Creek, as he and his partner, Cindy Lee, revisit the sighting locations, speak to the living eyewitnesses, and consider all possible theories in their search for the truth behind the legendary Lizard Man.

One Response to “Lizard Man book is here!”

  1. Iceman responds:

    I went to visit my old school in East Tennessee over Fall Break and investigated a Great Depression-era cryptid, down the road, in the little hamlet of South Pittsburgh, called a “devil monkey,” generally supposed now to have been either an escaped baboon or kangaroo.
