He is certain that a weekend at the family cabin in the Missouri woodland presents the perfect opportunity and will strengthen their bond.

Matt Bille, a cryptozoologist and writer known for his scientific approach in well-researched books such as 2006’s Shadows of Existence: Discoveries and Speculations in Zoology, has published his first novel, The Dolmen (Wolfsinger Publications, 2014).
The Dolmen is a cryptozoological horror novel with a dash of police procedural. “I wanted to explore what would really happen if a dangerous creature got loose in a modern city,” the author says. “What would police and the media really do?” He talked to police, scientists, and others to get the background of this fast-paced thriller right.

The genre has never been healthier, in quantity or quality.
