    Cryptid X-Files

    When I was in my teens 40 years ago I read Bernard Huevelmans's In Search of Unknown Animals. Sadly, that book is only available at a steep price of $200.00+ dollars and probably a bit dated. Kurt Shuker has done a good job of updating a Huevelmans checklist of possible unknown species. The major weakness in this book is a long chapter on the Mongolian death worm, a fantastic creature that sounds like a local myth used to excite gullible Westerners. The book is a fun read and I plan to purchase other available Shuker cryptozoology titles. It also would be nice if someone reprints In Search of Unknown Animals at a reasonable price.

    A Superb Introduction To Cryptozoology

    For the many fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman or the X-Files, Shuker has provided a well-written and scientifically-rigorous introduction to the new science of cryptozoology, which applies scientific method to animals rumored to exist which have not yet been officially recognized. In the tradition of Bernard Heuvelmans' classic On the Track of Unknown Animals, Shuker surveys reports of mystery animals from around the world, including giant Irish otters and the truly bizarre death worm of Mongolia, presenting the eyewitness accounts as well as his analysis of what the truth behind those accounts is likely to be; he displays his objectivity throughout the work - not all the reports are accepted as dealing with an actual unknown animal, giving credibility to those instances where he believes there remains something extraordinary to be tracked down. Highly recommended for both cryptozoologists and those dabbling in the subject for the first time.
