Goatman: Flesh or Folklore Book

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on December 12th, 2014

Though the cases are often entangled with urban legend, reported sightings of bipedal, goat-like creatures do enter the realms of cryptozoology. Dubbed “goatmen,” the beasts are described as either hairy humanoids with a goat-like head or horned men with fur and hooves, often bent on frightening those who encounter them. With an abundance of shocking tales involving these modern satyrs, author and paranormal researcher, J. Nathan Couch, sets out to explore the phenomenon in his new book, Goatman: Flesh or Folklore. Within the pages, Couch recounts famous cases – including that of the Pope Lick Monster, Maryland Goatman, and the Lake Worth Monster – along with a hoard of other hoof-walking horrors as he attempts to separate fact from folklore.

Encounters with the Sasquatch

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 10th, 2014

Large, hairy, bipedal anthropoid beings were described in the ancient legends of the indigenous people of British Columbia long before “Bigfoot” became a phenomenon in popular culture. The Bukwus (male sasquatch in Kwakwaka’wakw) and D’sonoqua (female version) appear in carvings and dance as well as folklore. Native Watchman Tom Sewid talks about his personal encounter with the Bukwus, “The Wild Man of the Woods” , in 1994 while on a fishing boat anchored off of Village Island in the Broughton Archipelago.

Monsters No Longer Have Cooties!

Posted by: Howard Goldthwaite on November 7th, 2014

They’re in, they’re hip, and suddenly (after thousands of years) they rule pop culture. Up until recently, telling someone you were into monsters and cryptozoology was not a shortcut to popularity. But things are changing. Monsters are taking over TV, starring in more movies, as well as appearing on beer labels and hipster T-shirts. And since monsters are now cool, that means the people who look for them are cool, too. Right?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 31st, 2014

Do ghosts exist? What about Bigfoot or Skinwalkers? And how will we ever know? Journalist Tea Krulos spent more than a year traveling nationwide to meet individuals who have made it their life’s passion to hunt down evidence of entities that they believe exist but that others might shrug off as nothing more than myths, fairy tales, or the products of overactive imaginations.

Werewolves: Not Transformed People

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 25th, 2014

“When people learn that I do think there is a real werewolf phenomenon, many of them assume I mean werewolves of the folkloric and Hollywood variety. That’s to say, people who shape-shift into wolves, or into bipedal wolf-like creatures that are half-wolf and half-human. I should stress I believe no such thing – at all.”
