Werewolves, Scarefest & Monster Mash

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 9th, 2008

Werewolves are in the news again.

Nick Redfern has a new article on the werewolves in movies, featured via recent books, and showing up in reality television. He also mentions that Timothy Green Beckley has a new book out, entitled The Big Book of Werewolves in Reality, in Folklore, in Cinema and in Lust. Redfern’s overview is worthy of a read.

Also, newly republished is a classic in hardback, The Book of Werewolves by Sabine Baring-Gould, with an new introduction by yours truly, Loren Coleman.

Speaking of werewolves, see some of you at the Scarefest in Lexington, Kentucky this Friday and Saturday, and at the Mass Monster Mash on October 18th.

Scarefest tickets are still available at the door. I’ll be speaking there on September 12-13, and appearing with Ben Radford on the Georgia Bigfoot hoax panel on Friday afternoon, the 12th of September.

Mass Monster Mash tickets are selling out fast, seating is limited, and I recommend picking those up sooner than later, if you want to see all those folks and me in the Boston area before Halloween.

You never know what you might find out there.

Meanwhile, as you are hunting werewolves or in front of the fireplace reading about them, don’t forget to Save The Museum! Thank you.

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.

    I haven’t found Beckley’s book on my usual online adres (www.play.com) but it looks like it’s worth the read. I can also recommend Nick Redfern’s books… Brilliant; the humour, the atmosphere and, of course, the contents… a must have for all crypto fans. 😉

    I’ve read two of his books so far (Three Men Seeking Monsters and Memoirs of a Monster Hunter), with There’s Something in the Woods waiting for me once I’ve finished the book I’m currently reading.

    Hope you’re planning to pack a few silver bullets for your trip 😉

  3. ghosttheory responds:

    Argh! why can’t we have something like this in Los Angeles?

    Looks like fun!

    Anyone from California going?

    Argh! why can’t we have something like this in Los Angeles?

    …Uh, because Los Angeles is run by vampires??
    The undead are quite jealous, you know 😛

  5. Loren Coleman responds:

    Of course, the ultimate question are American werewolves in crypto-cinema fiction different than English ones?

  6. Andrew Minnesota responds:

    Well Loren I may very well be wrong here but isn’t the traditional european werewolf a man that turns into a wolf rather than the half man half wolf creature presented in cinema? Aren’t there more ways as well in european that a person can take the form of a werewolf such as putting on an enchanted pelt?

  7. norman-uk responds:

    Werewolves are now of course a huge tv commodity and a whole complex culture is being created for that audience-much appreciated by ones wife.

    Is there any news on the Skunka Warak’in (above)? Since we were teased with the stuffed animal being re-discovered.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
