Neanderthal: The Strange Saga of the Minnesota Iceman

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 13th, 2016

neanderthalcover1

The story begins at the end of 1968 in New Jersey, when zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans and biologist Ivan Sanderson first hear from a correspondent about the frozen corpse of an extremely hairy man-like creature being exhibited in the Midwest. Upon arrival in Minnesota, the two scientists come face to face with a “hominid” not of our species embedded in a block of ice. An inquiry into the origin of the specimen triggers a bizarre adventure involving the FBI, the Smithsonian, the Mafia, the Vietnam War, drug smuggling, Hollywood, and a secretive millionaire, giving much of the account the flavor of a riveting detective story. What happened is told in meticulous detail by Heuvelmans, who draws a startling conclusion as to the Iceman’s nature based on a comparison of its anatomy with that of modern humans and fossil ancestors.

Profiling the Russian Goat-Sucker

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 22nd, 2015

My new book, Chupacabra Road Trip, focuses primarily on my expeditions to seek out the legendary chupacabra across Puerto Rico, the United States, and Mexico, and from 2004 to the present day. As I also note in the book, however, there is no shortage of reports of the Goat-Sucker from Russia – an issue that often gets eclipsed by the exploits of the far more famous Puerto Rican original.

Profiling “The Bigfoot Book”

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 29th, 2015

Bigfoot: it’s a controversy-filled word that is instantly recognizable to just about one and all. And, regardless of whether one is a true believer, an open-minded skeptic, a definitive non-believer, or a semi-interested observer of the controversy, pretty much everyone knows what the word implies and describes: a large, hair-covered, ape-style animal that is said to roam, and lurk within, the mysterious, forested wilds of the United States.

Bizarre Beasts at Creepy Castles

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 28th, 2015

Any mention of supernatural phenomena, in connection with old British castles, is inevitably going to provoke imagery of ghosts, specters, and the dead returned (chain-rattling or not). This is hardly surprising, since Britain is seemingly filled with such stories and legends. Less well know, however, are the cases that link old castles not to human ghosts but to the ghosts of strange creatures. As in very strange creatures.

Profiling the Gloucester Sea Serpent

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 27th, 2015

Sightings of so-called Sea Serpents abound within the domain of monster-hunting. More often than not, they are encounters of a fleeting, one-time nature. But not always. One of the most enduring of all such leviathans of the deep is that which haunts the port of Gloucester, Massachusetts, and which is situated just north of the city of Boston.

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 25th, 2015

bigfootbook1

…as well as well known things like “B for Bigfoot,” “Y for Yeti” etc, there are a lot of obscure Bigfoot-type creatures listed from Africa, South America, Europe, the Far East, and much more.

Plus, entries on Bigfoot in movies, TV shows, history, legend, and on what Bigfoot might really be, and 120 photos/drawings/paintings.

Also entries on some of the more controversial aspects of Bigfoot, such as the “infra-sound” issue and Bigfoot/UFO theories.

From Bigfoot To Willow Man

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 24th, 2015

As anyone who has followed my writing will know, I have, over the years, collected a huge number of reports of Bigfoot-like creatures in the U.K. As well as cases involving out-of-place apes and monkeys, and downright anomalous primates of the hairy kind. Of course, to be on the receiving end of such reports in somewhere the size of the U.K. is way more controversial than collecting reports originating in the vast forests of the United States.

Megalania – A Monster Still Among Us?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 23rd, 2015

Megalania

Is it feasible that the subtropical rainforests of Australia are home to gigantic, marauding lizards of twenty to thirty feet in length? Could such Jurassic Park-like beasts really remain hidden, undetected, and free to rampage around in near-unstoppable fashion? Just maybe, the answer is “yes.”

Real-Life Creatures from the Black Lagoon?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 20th, 2015

Is it possible that Hollywood’s Creature from the Black Lagoon has a real-life counterpart? Or, maybe, not exactly a counterpart, but something that is broadly similar? Just possibly, yes – as amazing as it might sound.
