MA HB Ends

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 31st, 2006

It is Friday, March 31 (a day I predicted on Wednesday we would hear about earthquakes). This day will see the hardcover and paperback editions of Mysterious America from Paraview go out of print. No more hardback copies of Mysterious America again.

Mysterious America

Famed natural history artist Alexis Rockman painted the cover depicting a real encounter he and his associates had with a giant catfish.

Your last day to buy either paperbound or hardbound copies of Mysterious America online is today.

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.

    Well, Loren, you were right about the earthquakes!

    What sort of “info” caused you to make that prediction?

  2. Loren Coleman responds:

    Predictions of strong earthquakes are relatively easy if you watch the cycles of eclipses. The significant eclipse on Wednesday naturally made me watch for an upcoming earthquake of some note.

    This is important in cryptozoology (and natural history studies in general) because animal activity is often increased in the two-three days after an important (strong alignment) of the sun and moon, as evidenced in eclipses.

  3. Mnynames responds:

    Devil’s advocate here- Why would the moon briefly blocking sunlight cause or release tectonic stress?

  4. Loren Coleman responds:

    It has nothing to do, obviously, with the sunlight being blocked out (solar eclipse) or the surface of the moon being in shadow (lunar eclipse). It is all about the tidal forces created by the alignments (resulting in seismic events, animal behavioral changes, and spring tides). I am not talking about anything unknown here, but merely applying known cause and effect theories to predictions that are easy to make. I might even expect an upswing in sightings of cryptids coming to our attention in the next week or so. The phases of the moon have been known to have an impact, for example, on fishing for centuries.

    Already ordered my copy, just waiting on the package to arrive…

  6. Loren Coleman responds:

    Hope it arrives before your next birthday!

    Sent my money order for it today, Loren. Hope you get it soon, but please try to be patient because sometimes the postal service is abysmally slow. Looking forward to owning a copy of this seminal volume (in hardback, at least; already have it in paperback).

  8. Craig Woolheater responds:

    The box was at my door when I got home this evening. What a box! A hardcover copy of Mysterious America, the Field Guide To Bigfoot and The Unidentified/Creatures of the Outer Edge.

  9. CryptoInformant responds:

    Good! I still have a few hours. Any news on Ucumar Zupai, or the “_______ Devil?”
