The Eerie Owlman…

Owlman and Others

My latest Creature of the Month article at the blog of New Page Books is on the subject of one of the UK’s weirdest winged whatsits of all. It starts like this…

“It is a large, humanoid, flying monster with glowing red eyes and huge, powerful wings. It strikes fear into the very heart of all those that encounter it. It’s the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, right? Nope, wrong. Although it is just about the closest thing that Britain has to the bizarre beast made famous in John Keel’s now-classic book, The Mothman Prophecies. Its name is the Owlman.”
