Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman

Posted by: Nick Redfern on September 10th, 2014

There are no less than TWO more new books from Andy Colvin on Mothman! Here’s the first:

Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman: Selected Letters From Paranormal Witnesses and Researchers


Spurred by the realization that the 9/11 attacks were accurately predicted – in 1967 – by a childhood friend who was seeing Mothman, Seattle artist Andy Colvin began filming a reality series, “The Mothman’s Photographer,” documenting his experiences growing up in Mound, West Virginia.

Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman chronicles the thoughts and feelings of several Mothman experiencers and researchers, beginning five years after the attacks (2008-2010). These revealing letters, penned during a wave of odd synchronicities, sightings, and encounters, indicate that Mothman may be a guardian angel of mind-bending proportions.

Interwoven with these personal diaries are replies and other posts from Colvin, which reach back into the mysterious history of the Ohio Valley, providing not only a fuller context for the phenomenon, but also illustrations of how the paranormal and the media work together to help form public opinion and belief.

In their thought-provoking attempts to figure out just what Mothman might be up to, Colvin and company look at every possible myth, legend, and conspiracy theory they can find, leading the reader on a wild, entertaining, and often poignant ride into high-strangeness.

“Just the kind of reportage the Mothman story needed – that of a witness who can research, and who understands parapolitics…” -Kenn Thomas, Steamshovel Press

“Harry Potter meets The X-Files, with a dash of Sherlock on top… ” –UFO Magazine

“True insight into the creative and synchronistic aspects of the paranormal…” –Randy Maugans, Exotica Radio

“It’s too bad we all don’t go through this kind of learning process…” -John Keel, author of The Mothman Prophecies
