Legend of Boggy Creek Collectible Figure

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on March 20th, 2014


As most know, I’m a huge fan of The Legend of Boggy Creek. I’ve written a book on the subject, collected relics from the film and Fouke area, and lectured about Fouke Monster history at events across the country. So when I came across the opportunity to make The Legend of Boggy Creek movie poster come to life, so to speak, I jumped at the chance.

The New Zealand Prime Minister publicly denies being a lizard person

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on February 16th, 2014

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key was recently asked to provide “any evidence to disprove the theory that [he] is in fact a David Icke style shapeshifting reptilian alien ushering humanity towards enslavement.” Key, in a congenial manner atypical of shapeshifting reptilian aliens, responded.

Troodon and the Dinosauroid Hypothesis

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on December 23rd, 2013

In a chapter entitled “Possibilities” from my new book, Lizard Man, I discuss various theories which have been proposed to explain sightings of reptilian-humanoid type cryptids. One of these theories is based on the concept of a “Hypothetical Dinosauroid,” which is a conjectured evolutionary path conceived by D.A. Russell and R. Séguin and published in 1982 in the National Museum of Canada’s Syllogeous No. 37. In the paper, Russell and Séguin essentially hypothesize that if the brain of this dinosaur had continued to grow in proportion to its body, then evolutionary changes would have been necessary to accommodate the new cranial mass. One of these changes would have been a more upright stance, since the “tendency to position the head more directly over the vertebral column is seen in anthropoids of increasing brain size.” This would conceivably lead to more anthropomorphic legs, longer arms, and most dramatically, a human-like head. It’s an interesting concept, and one that I discuss further in my book (as it relates to cryptozoology).

Along these lines, I came across this interesting video which provides additional information and visuals in regard to the concept of the Dinosauroid and reptilian humanoids in general:

Dead Bigfoot: A True Story Reviewed

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on December 23rd, 2013

If you follow bigfoot research, you’ve no doubt heard the controversial name of Justin Smeja. Smeja is, of course, the bear hunter who claims to have shot and killed a juvenile sasquatch in the Sierra mountains in 2010. Since coming forward, his story has been widely spread on the internet (through both interviews and a small documentary), and lately featured in several television shows including Bigfoot: The New Evidence. The DNA evidence has been analyzed, but still the question remains: did Smeja actually kill a bigfoot?

These type of stories tend to polarize the bigfoot community as researchers struggle to sort out the truth. In an effort to do just that, bigfoot researcher and independent filmmaker, Ro Sahebi, in association with The Sierras Evidence Initiative, has created a new feature documentary titled Dead Bigfoot: A True Story. In the doc, Sahebi interviews the witnesses, initiates a polygraph test, and takes a look at the various shreds of evidence that have thus far been presented.

Lizard Man Q&A

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on November 19th, 2013


I was doing research on monster sightings that have occurred in various swamps locations around the southeast U.S. In the process I actually visited swamps in several different states, including Scape Ore Swamp near Bishopville, South Carolina. As I interviewed people in the area, including law officials and witnesses, I realized there was much more to the story of the Bishopville Lizard Man than had ever been made public. It seemed like a great story, so I ended up developing it into a book.

Lizard Man Book Cover

I’m proud to announce that my new book, Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster, is now available from Anomalist Books.

As with my previous book, The Beast of Boggy Creek, I offer an in-depth look at one of the most bizarre and hair-raising cases of an unknown creature. During my research trip to Bishopville – and to Scape Ore Swamp itself – I discovered that there’s much more to the story than I first realized… and much more than meets the eye regarding the media’s portrayal of this modern-day ‘creature from the black lagoon.’ All in all, it made for a fascinating research trip and resulted in a book that I think everyone will truly enjoy.
