Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 13th, 2008

The Good For several months, there have been no new Mothman news, as it relates to the Mothman Death List. That’s great.

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 12th, 2008

Roy Snelling (1934-2008). Cryptozoologically, insects are not really in the realm of animals that Bernard Heuvelmans, myself and others strictly defined as of interest to the field, but nevertheless, we must admire those toiling to make the new discoveries of all those little animals out there that remain to be described.

A Tale of Two Suits

Posted by: Loren Coleman on May 11th, 2008

I suppose the first Mother’s Day after one experiences the death of their Yeti-supportive mother is always difficult.
