Jason did the cover artwork and it’s absolutely stunning. The Caddy in the illustration is a composite of various sightings. We are damn proud of this book and can’t wait until the autumn when it is released.

It was 1996, in the mid-Atlantic, aboard a U.S. Coast Guard training ship.
“The crew have this thing in sight — and it’s only a ‘thing’ — for about 25 minutes,” O’Neill said. “It’s circling around their ship — nobody logs it; nobody reports it to anyone.”

Like many people, I’ve followed the hunts for the Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch, and an assortment of other cryptids, over the years.

You might still hear about a UFO sighting or two in Maine – or maybe a report of a large beast in the woods. But it’s much less common to hear modern accounts of the sea serpent. There was a time, though, when such sightings were much more common, and reported by upstanding citizens. In the latest installment of our occasional series, Maine’s Hidden History, Maine Things Considered host Tom Porter turns once again to Portland historian Herb Adams.
