King Kong is set to make its return to the Universal Orlando Resort.

When Kong returns, it will be to Universal Orlando’s other theme park, Islands of Adventure.

Of all of my 20 books, none has attracted such acclaim but also such controversy as In Search of Prehistoric Survivors. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of its original publication in 1995, and having received countless requests from readers over the years for its republication (after having been out of print for a number of years now), I am happy to say that following a protracted period of time doing the rounds of prospective publishers, it was accepted for publication just over a year ago, and I am working upon it with a view to its achieving a timely 2015 reappearance.

A recent sighting of a living pterosaur.
What amazing encounters! In California, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Florida, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and many other states, eyewitnesses have seen strange featherless creatures flying overhead. These are not bats; most have long tails and are bigger than any bat.

Darin Naish returns to MonsterTalk to discuss his latest book, Cryptozoologicon: Volume I. From the well known to the very obscure, this book takes three looks at monsters. It critically examines them, but also speculates on what they might be like if they were real…

This article appears in all the international publications of the Metro. In it,I discuss the importance of analysing evidence and cryptids carefully. I do however recognise that there will always be a place for lovable eccentrics in the field.

It is surprising how certain events from your childhood stick with you over the years and make subtle changes in who you are as a person.
One such series of events that I remember vividly to this day, were a series of reports of ‘flying monsters’ that came out of Texas in our nation’s Bicentennial year (1976).
