Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol

Strange But True – Vintage Book Review

Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol They say the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. And that’s definitely the case with my son. He inherited my goofy sense of humor, my love of sci-fi and horror movies, my passion for video games, and of course, my interest in the paranormal. As soon […]

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern

Monsters of the Deep – Book Review

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern I’ve never really shied away from the fact that when it comes to cryptids, I’m probably least interested in those of the aquatic variety. Lake monsters, sea serpents, and other anomalous water-based creatures just don’t typically hold my interest. And to be totally honest, I’m not even sure why. […]

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

Last week, I wrote about the giant squid that washed ashore in South Africa, and how interesting it was that I was concurrently reading Nick Redfern’s new book, Monsters of the Deep. Well, today my feed is abuzz about this new photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, which is obviously also covered in Nick’s […]

In Search Of... Zachary Quinto History Channel

TV Review: In Search Of…

Whenever the inevitable question comes up regarding what first got me interested in the paranormal, my answer is always the same: the old In Search Of… television show hosted by Leonard Nimoy. In fact, I even make reference to it here on the blog in my bio. In Search Of… was a syndicated TV series that ran from 1977 to […]

Brooklyn Hyena and Out of Place Animals

The phenomenon of out of place animals is an interesting sub-genre of cryptozoology and Forteana, but not one that I am usually drawn to, with few exceptions. I think it’s safe to say that creatures like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness monster, and the Dover Demon are far more intriguing than a […]

Nessie by Ian Bremner

Most Convincing Photo of the Loch Ness Monster Yet?

I have said in the past, numerous times, that I don’t believe in the Loch Ness Monster. At least, I don’t believe that the things people are seeing that make up the legend of Nessie are necessarily caused by a prehistoric plesiosaur that has survived into modern times. But people are seeing something, so obviously […]

Bigfoot Hoaxer Tries to Prove Bigfoot is a Hoax

I had a pretty busy, aggravating day at work today, and really needed a good laugh. And then I stumbled across this: a press release about known Bigfoot hoaxer Tom Biscardi presenting a radio show that would prove once and for all that the Patterson-Gimlin footage is a hoax. I’ll let that sink in for […]

The Year In Review: 2015 – Part 1

A 2015 Year in Review in March of 2016? Yes I know I’m late to the party on this one, but there are reasons. Honestly, I initially wasn’t going to do a Year in Review, because my blogging fell off tremendously, and I was dealing with a lot in my personal life. But I did […]

yeti footage on camera ski resort spain

Yeti at Spanish Ski Resort?

When most people talk about the Yeti, certain images come up: white, tall, hairy, humanoid figure. But a very specific location is always associated with it: the Himalayas. In any other region, this creature is almost always described as having darker fur (I said almost – there are exceptions). So one would think that a […]

International Cryptozoology Museum Loren Colemen

International Cryptozoology Museum Needs Your Help

It’s not often that I would use this platform to ask for help with something, but this is a cause I believe in and I’m going to do my best to get the word out there. If you are at all interested in Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, el chupacabra, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the […]
