Used Cryptozoology Books

Most of these are used, some are new, and all are available directly from Arcturus, not from me. I thought some readers who don’t have these titles might be interested in this new list, just published today. Arcturus’ used books go fast, so call or email him sooner than later. (Contact info is at the bottom.)



1. Beckley, Timothy Green, and Kern, William, eds. TIMOTHY GREEN BECKLEY’S BIG BOOK OF WEREWOLVES-IN REALITY, IN FOLKLORE, IN CINEMA AND IN LUST! Global Comm., 2008. Lg. softbound, 238pp. 18 pages of photo illustrations. The Redeeming Social Value consists of a reprint of Sabine Baring-Gould’s 19th Century Book of Werewolves. The unredeemed parts include a chapter by Brad Steiger, one by Sean Casteell, one by Tim Swartz re werewolves in the cinema, and a Clarence Housman short story. That’s all they had pages for. $24.95


I have to note that the re-publication of this classic has also just occurred in hardback. The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould, is new from Cosimo Books, with a new introduction by yours truly, Loren Coleman, and now for sale in bookstores everywhere for $22.95, or via online locations for $18.36, plus shipping (thus cheaper than the paperback mentioned above).

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.
