Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    What an amazing list!

    Go here for their Website.

  2. Bob Michaels responds:

    I’ve bookmarked this, I have Ellis, Shuker and Mackal in my collection, I gave my Sanderson books to my nephews years ago.

  3. B-Diddy responds:

    I got a copy of Heuvelmans “Neanderthal est toujours vivant” some days ago. A very good book and nice pictures!

  4. robin_bellamy responds:

    Bob loses the bet. I just bought $150 worth (after discount and before taxes)

    Should I be hospitalized I’m set for reading material for a long recuperation! I received my copy of Mysterious America today in the mail as well. And a week ago I got Jerry’s book More Strange Highways as well as the fiction Crypto by Eric Penz. I may be a new Crypto researcher, but I’m going to be well read!

  5. Bob Michaels responds:

    I have been looking for Mystery Cats of the World by Karl Shuker, found two copies available, one for $101.94, the other $254.86, a little steep, the book is out of print but material is available in other Shuker Books. I had a conversation in the past with Karl.

    I think we need a book entitled the “Best of Cryptozoology” edited by a distinguished group of Cryptozoologists.

  6. springheeledjack responds:

    did not know it was there…thanks!!!

  7. UKCryptid responds:

    Hope i can get advertising like this one day

  8. mfs responds:

    Great collection of interesting books many which I do have. Roy P. Mackal, Karl Shuker, Ivan Sanderson and Loren Coleman are my favorites. Some of my cryptofan friends will like this list. Thanks.

  9. MBFH responds:

    Great list Loren. Thanks for the link as well Fuzzy. Roll on pay day!
