I don’t often read fiction, but occasionally a book comes across my path that beckons me to put aside scholarly texts and enjoy a good story. Case in point, The Secret of Blackjack Woods, the debut novel by Ashlen Brown. I recently met the Texas-based author at a cryptozoology event where I picked up a copy. Having no prior knowledge of her book, I was initially drawn in by its mysterious title and cover – which seems to hint at a Bigfoot story – and after a brief conversation with Brown I learned that indeed the impetus for her novel had come from an incident in which her mother and sister sighted a mysterious creature near their family home in Texas. This led to speculation that it could have been a Bigfoot which later inspired Brown to write her heart-felt and downright exciting novel.

Like many people, I’ve followed the hunts for the Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch, and an assortment of other cryptids, over the years. Given the vastness of our largely unexplored oceans, it wouldn’t surprise me to have a supposedly extinct marine predator turn up entangled in a trawler’s net tomorrow. You just never know. ~ Max Hawthorne

The line between history and legend can be deceptively thin—too thin, perhaps, to maintain the claim that one is exclusively fact and one fiction. Such may be the case with the history of Lewis and Clark—for the fact is that two hundred years after they were handpicked by Thomas Jefferson to lead an extraordinary expedition to the Pacific coast, legends still persist regarding unexplained gaps in the explorers’ field journals.

My thoughts fresh from the screening…
Well, I have to say, and I told Jane Fleming, one of the film’s producers who was in attendance at the screening, that this movie is right there with Bobcat Goldthwait’s film, Willow Creek, as far as being the best Bigfoot movie of all time!
One film, Willow Creek, doesn’t even show Bigfoot, while Exists has Bigfoot all over it!
